I ended up doing Kathryn Budig Aim True Yoga I did about 15 minutes i was going to do the whole thing but it got rather difficult because of the knee bend movements and all that so i stopped and did P90x KenpoX...surprisingly it went pretty good, Had trouble with the switch the feet punches because of the jumping part (ended up just doing them the regular way without the jumping)..hardest part was the yoga because my flexibility is shit right now, but i will get there..I will be doing Crow pose before too long :p

Dietwise was a mix of good and bad.much better than yesterday had some organic chips and salsa, 5 bananas, about 30 oz of hemp milk with 2 tablespoons of Sunwarrior Ormus Green and 1 scoop of Sunwarrior warrior blend protein and a couple of is a start i need to get more raw food in but i have a bunch of soups and frozen dinners and stuff to get through first..plan is to go mostly raw food by spring time.I am going to start my own garden in the spring, couldn't do it this year because of my surgery but i am determined to do a 180 change in my lifestyle choices in 2012..especially the diet and exercise part of it.

Well got up and got my Push workout in the books for today.I was pretty sore from doing the p90x Kenpo video yesterday but wasn't working my legs so i didn't really care :lachmal: I thought today's workout went really well, weighed myself this morning.I didn't like what i saw but wasn't surprised because of my junk food habit lately and really being lazy as well.I am also going to start logging in my food intake at Livestrong to hold myself more accountable on the nutrition front.

Morning Weight 234.4 :augenroller: :cry:
Fat % 28.9 (handheld thing at the gym)
BMI 33.2 (handheld thing at the gym)

obviously these are pathetic numbers but i ain't going to fuss to much about it because it was expected.With my injury, than the surgery to correct it and the stress I have been under ever since then..I just have to snap out of the self absorbing brooding behavior I have been in.2012 is upon us and this will CHANGE!!

  • Overhead Press 1x55x12, 5x65x5
  • Bench Press 1x55x12, 1x75x5, 3x80x5
  • Tricep Dips on bench modified 3x10
  • Tricep Ext on Machine 1x60x12, 1x70x10
  • Modified Push Ups 1x10, 1x9

  • Walked 2.3 Miles at about 2.5-3.0 MPH.

The Food Log have it all planned out! that's a first...
  • Meal One Red bull, 2 Bananas and Kombucha Multi-green (390 calories)
  • Meal Two 16 oz Hemp Milk, 1 scoop Sunwarrior warrior blend, Sunwarrior Ormus Green (342 calories)
  • Meal Three Amy's Low Salt Lentil Soup (375 calories)
  • Meal FourNaked Juice Green Machine, 2 Bananas (490 calories)
  • Meal Five Veggie Tray (everyone else is eating meatballs and all that stuff ) (guessing under 100 calories)
  • Meal Six Almond Milk and 1 scoop of Sunwarrior Warrior Blend (262 calories)

1900 calories, 25g fat, 362g Carbs, 75g protein, 31g fiber

probably have a couple beers today too so that should push me to about 2100-2200 calories....

I have had this piece of equipment for awhile now so I thought it was about time I used it ;) I did some inverted rows on it, Actually i might start doing some running in place drills on this as well..tried it for a minute and got a little sweat going in that short of time and didn’t really bother my achilles or my holding onto the the handles and running seemed to ease some of the stress on my hurting parts :p

Pull Workout

  • Dumbbell Deadlift 1x50x12, 3x60x10, 1x60x9
  • Dumbbell Rows 4x60x10
  • Bicep Curls 5x30x10
  • Dumbbell Shrugs 1x60x20, 2x70x20,1x70x12
  • Bodyweight Row (UltimateBodyPress) 2x7

Didn't have time for the gym today so I tried to do everything using is wierd cause it seems the 30lb db's at the gym seem heavier than my home ones..hmm? anyways everything went well..probably should have added 10 lbs to my Curls, the shrugs i am just working my way into them so the high rep will continue until I add more weight.took about 30-40 minutes....

  • Walked to work 1.3 miles

Still have to get into the habit of logging my food.wasn't to bad today.

Hi Jesse!

I've seen you on here more than almost anyone lately! I was just talking to Karen (the co-creator of our 12 Days and New You for the New Year program) about you. I'm impressed with your dedication here.

I like your journal style. Very organized and creative. Great stuff.

You were just outside the first 50 to apply for a coach this month, but I'm going to see what we can do about getting you matched up with someone. Some coaches are totally maxed out and can only handle X number because of their regular work/life schedule, but we're going to create some flexibility somewhere and make it work.

Follow up with me or and with Karen and one of us will follow up with you and get you set up to rock this challenge and rock this month!

We've got a lot of exciting stuff to look forward to.

Thanks again for being here and for all your efforts and time spent in our community. Much appreciated.

Happy New Year!
