The elliptical is ok but I prefer the bike. The cornbread is best served warm with milk and sugar but that has been my fav way since I was young. I have never been teeny always stocky or hefty lol. Can't wait to see if I get teeny

Wow managed to pull a muscle in my groin/hamstring area during yoga. Very uncomfortable to move it, sit down and stand up.... should be very interesting. Not happy this happened.....

Oh no! You got any anti-inflammatories like Vega's Recovery Accelerator, Vegan Zyphlamend, ginger-tumeric pills, EFA's, and or vitamin C? I hope it heals quickly! It should just be a temporary set back! Don't stress over your training being delayed, just heal up well love =)

Thanks :) it only bothers me when I sit on a hard surface with my legs uncrossed. Luckily legs day isn't until Saturday so I will be icing and being gentle on my leg. Lucky for me the elliptical doesn't phase it a bit but I am sure the stationary bike I was eyeing this morning would. But here is something I just don't get at all. Why would you drink a soda of any kind, diet or regular, while working out or doing cardio???? I just can't put my mind around it. I can kinda understand gatorade, can understand the preworkout drinks, and the protein powders but I see people drink soda and coffee at the gym...... Am I missing something? Did I not get the memo???

Oh wow. Yea, I would love to know that too. Seems self-defeating to me. Happy to hear you could still do some cardio. =)

Yeah otherwise I go nuts cause I can't burn off the extra energy. Seems once I feel I have burnt off the energy my reserves are full again and I want to do more... I can't figure out what I need to do to slow that down. I feel like I want to go go go go all the time and when stuck at work I get restless, bored and irritated. I need a more active job but silly me I made a promise that I would stay till the end.....
