Your workouts are so varied! How much of that is by design (i.e. to keep the body guessing), and how much is because of the joint/foot difficulties?
I'm always curious to see if I'm progressing in strength, and therefore keep my workout the same for a few weeks, but I wonder if this is cutting off my nose to spite my face--i.e., maybe the lower variety prevents strength/size gains.
Your foods sound so delicious! So do you consider milks, powders, & PB to be OK exceptions to the avoidance of processed foods?
And finally, how is Bo doing? I've been keeping the two of you in mind when I send out my prayers to whoever listens...
Happy Thursday (and feel free to lecture me about the foods!),

New Work Out Plan
Posted: Sun Aug 19, 2007 6:50 pm
I feel really motivated to get back into Ashtanga yoga again - but, I fear that without my cardio and lifting - I will gain body fat.
So .. . this is what I am thinking
AM: 45 - 60 min cardio
Lunch 20 - 30 min weights - one body part per day - with emphasis on core
PM: 60 min mysore practice with Melanie Fawer video or self led. Am going to stop in the sequence where I can't do the pose. This week I am stopping at : Trianga Mukhaikapada Paschimottanasana
Probably could go to Navasana - but, am going to stay here to try to be authentic and get the most out of practice
Baby Cleanse this week
Posted: Sun Aug 19, 2007 6:53 pm
I have a sampler pack of many of the wholefood farmacy products.
I am going to mix and match them for a baby cleanse - see how long I can go on JUST these foods.
Will be doing the farinas (liquid cleanse meals), phi plus, soups, veggielicious, fruitalicious and corn a plenty.
I will log each day how much and what I consume.
I am doing this to prep for at least a 13 day liquithon in October.
Posted: Mon Aug 20, 2007 12:37 pm
Good God, woman, you are hard-core!
It's refreshing to see that "EVEN LINDSAY" has a "hilarious" food day once in a while.
Now, it does happen occasionally (OK...often) that I see exercises here whose names I may have heard but don't know what they are (e.g. Ashtanga--know it's a type of yoga...may look it up, but not too high on my priority list), but so far, you're the first to post exercises I had to read through slowly to be able to pronounce (and probably not correctly, at that)!
Do you usually work out twice a day? I know you're planning on 3x/day soon & a total of up to 2.5 hours a day! Would that be every day of the week? How will you guard against overtraining?
Now, the liquithon...is that essentially a liquid fast? (Sorry if this question is dumb...my exercise and nutrition knowledge is pretty mainstream.)
Looking forward to seeing your progress!
For Clever name!

HA!! I had to copy and paste the name of that pose!!! I don't think I could even begin to utter it.
Yes - I try to move at least twice a day . . . the big workout is always in the am. I own a recording studio that has me on my boodie from 8 to 5pm . . . and I personal train clients after 5pm . . . but, I have to move during my day or I go crazy. . .
Don't know if the three times a day is going to fly - might just have to squeeze the weights in on the am workout - but, I really want to start focusing on the ashtanga again. It is an amazing series of yoga postures - very athletic and challenging. Whole sequence takes 90 min . . . and you sweat from head to toe. Check out ayri.com or ashtanga.com. FYI - it is the yoga madonna, gwenyth, sting and so much of Hollywood does!!
the liquithon is a liquid "fast". But, it's not really a fast as you are consuming farinas made of whole, raw food. I buy and sell products from wholefood farmacy - and the liquithon is one of their products.
I think you'd enjoy the info on their site: www.vegetabodies.wholefoodfarmacy.com
- click on the liquithon and you'll see.
I'm just experiementing with the farinas and their other food products this week to see how they make me feel - I have never been able to discipline myself to a liquid cleanse before . . . This week I will be adding in other whole food farmacy foods and probably some fruit and raw veggies.
I have had two of the farinas so far today - the Elictrifi and the Frucitfi - both delicious - and filling!

40 min spin w/ intervals
30 min speed walk in MBT shoes - love these!! Best purchase EVER!!
Electriphi Farina w/ berries, banana,green food powder, glutamine, one scoop hemp
10:30am Fructify Farina
1 tbsp Fruitalicious
12:30 Gloriphi Farina
1:30pm2 tbsp cornaborealis - YUMMMMY
2:30 pm Ampliphi Farina
4:30 beautiphi Farina
4:40 Ate rest of sample bags of veggielicious, fruitalicious and cornaborealis - YUUUUMMMMMM
5:30 1 big tbsp ofn Phi Plus Super Food
7pm one hour Ashtanga
8pm Clarify Farina
Sliced raw tomatos and one half avocado
9pm Detoxify Farina
Looking back on this day . . . I think I could really do the liquithon. Yes - I ate all of the little sample bags of the snack foods - but it was just additional veggies and fruits - I never felt hungry - which is amazing - I just eat out of boredom I think.
Rethinking workout plan - will just do am workout - cardio each am and core strength body weight exercise Tues, Thurs, SAt and continue with goal to work on Ashtanga each night - Sun - Friday.

Previous entry was for Monday 08.20
30 min jog
30 min strength on core board - various lunges, push ups, rotations, bicep curls w/bands and pullups (6 sets pull, chin )
7:30 electriphi w/ berries, mangos and supps
12:15 phi plus
3:30 beautiphi and phi plus
4:30 pm phi plus
6pm one hour ashtanga
40 min walk in MBTs
7:30pm 2 cups Wholefood farmacy "soup" one yam, one veggie
9pm detoxiphi plus extra psyllium
Well, very interesting. I was very bored with just drinking today- so I ate a lot of phi plus - too much at 4pm - felt a bit sluggish afterwards .. .
Don't know if I could do the full cleanse with out a partner - this is why I'm glad I gave it a trial period ... felt good though - but, I was eating solid food too.
I would have to really cut back on my workouts. . .
I didn't go food shopping this week - so I am going to do my best to scavenge for healthy meals the rest of the week.
Plan on cutting dreads off Saturday . . .
Posted: Wed Aug 22, 2007 10:01 pm
AM: 2 cups yerba mate
8:30 Farmacy Pro Power, green food, glutamine, flax
10:30am apple, cashews, almonds
12pm - hill workout with client
1:30pm steamed cauliflower, spinach and peas with peanut sauce
3:30 tomatoes and 1/2 avocado
5:30pm one hour ashtanga
7pm baby carrots and 1 tbsp hummus
7: 30 pm Vegan Brat with sauteed onions, raw sauer craut
I really missed my fresh fruits and veggies the last two days.
Not happy about the vegan brat - but, it was delicious!! And - although processed, I found the nutrition to be quite good - more protein in one food than I've had lately. Yummy and filling treat.
Had no groceries in the house, so went shopping at the worst time - drenched in sweat right after yoga . . . went quick - grabbed all the fruits and veggies that I could and then the brat just called my name. Then the craut . . . I'm from Milwaukee . . . what can I say??
Glad to be back to my regular eating habits.
THink next week I will switch yoga to am.
