Days 4, 5, and 6
Saturday - DAY 4 - Yoga X: I was surprised at how well I did, even in spite of not having done it since July. It took me a while to relax my brain, but once I settled into it, I really found myself loving it.
Sunday - DAY 5 - Legs & Back:... Read more
Day 2 - SO HOW ABOUT THAT.
I did P90X Plyo yesterday.
And I didn't really break a sweat until about a third of the way through it. THAT is how it compares to Insanity!
On the plus side, it was the best Plyo workout I'd ever had. Cardiovasc... Read more
I still feel kind of crappy... TIRED. Very anxious to get to the doc on Monday!
But I've got a plan for today, and I feel good about it.
I've planned out all my meals for the day, because when I am this tired, if I leave things to cha... Read more
I know I said I wasn't going to work out until I see the doc next Monday... but it felt WEIRD to not work out. I guess that's a good thing..? It's officially a HABIT. Yay!
Did good old P90X this morning, Day 1 - Chest & Back. Challengin... Read more
Insanity is just too insane for me right now. :(
I have decided that I'm going to hold off on workouts until I can see the doctor, because I'm pretty sure that I shouldn't be falling asleep an hour after I'm done with my workouts. Workout... Read more
Doctor's office was a bit of a bust... I got there and they told me that I needed to see someone else. (I went to the clinic because I have no regular doc, my old doc having "sold out" by forming an elite practice that would cost me an annual f... Read more
Plainly put, I'm tired of being tired.
And it's been this way for YEARS. I've been able to push through it up til now... but either I'm running out of strength, or it's getting worse and overpowering me, or maybe a combination of both.

Between my uterus trying to kill me and an apparent stomach virus, the weekend could have been better.
Instead, I was relegated to sitting mostly motionless. Not a real great time.
So my workouts got just a little jacked up last week,... Read more
PUMPKIN BREAD IS NOT A VEGETABLE
Public service announcement.
Also, a reminder to myself.... Read more
Is today Thursday?
I seriously had to check. I've been operating under the notion that today was Wednesday. Derp!
I'm now half through my fourth week of Insanity - and I'm having trouble with energy. I think I'm getting enough to eat, and in the right prop... Read more
Qdoba has become one of my favorite go-to places to get a super-healthy, super-tasty meal inexpensively and quickly.
Mexican cuisine is the kind of food choice that can be really healthy and full of fresh, whole ingredients, but it can go d... Read more
I think you and I need a break from each other. We have this toxic relationship where I'm always trying to get validation from you - and you're just being honest, I get it, so it's not your fault. It's not you - it's me. I need to work on not... Read more
A great week, a great weekend...
And it's shaping up to be another great week. I'm feeling strong and motivated!
I didn't want to get up and do Insanity this morning - it's a cool, grey, rainy morning here, which is never conducive to getting out of bed, much less so for ... Read more
If you are looking for a handy, at-a-glance, easy-to-remember reference that'll help you make better eating choices, I highly recommend "Food Rules" by Michael Pollan. (I actually recommend ANY book by Mr. Pollan - that dude is revolutionizing ... Read more
Cardio recovery day...
I do love this workout...
Some really good stretching going on here, but there are also some fantastic strength exercises. Love it!
Although I love it, it's not really too much of a calorie burner - so I may grab an "extra" tonight. ... Read more
