Just wanted to add that I felt more confident at this party I attended last night...got some positive feedback too. I'm really starting to love the changes I'm making.

Also, I"m going to be focusing on cutting out a bit more fat....just cooling it more with the olive oil, Earth Balance, Vegenaise and such. Those are a few of my favorite thiiiiiingsssss!
M too. I have not really seen much of a difference on the scale since I had lost my initial 10 lbs. It even had gone up...but I haven't tried in a few weeks. I know I have much more muscle now but I also know I still have a way to go on the lower half.....

moves

Bike ride to the farm…wow-I really thought I was going to get rained on today but luckily it held off and it was really quite cool for riding and picking in
the fields. Really had a close one coming home around this bend….I almost don't want to think about it. Next time I'll remember to switch sides of the road.

Back and Arms--- ARGH! I'm on fiiiire! I do like this one. I pretty much kept to the same weights and reps as last time(2 weeks ago)as back then I had upped it a lot from the prior workout. I improved by a hair I'd say on a few reps but that's it. I won't be doing this particular workout until I start the whole 90-day thing again.

ab ripper--- bowed out of it yesterday in favor or today. It's all good. Well, better anyway.

Yoga X--- doing it solo. Procrastinating… done. "Bout the same as 3 weeks ago I'd say. The last time I did it was 2 weeks go and and I was
weak from working out my shoulders and arms less than 12 hours before.

moves

Legs and Back---did it solo and faired quite well. 80/20 speed squats near the end are still a killer, but I was able to keep up and get "airborne" as suggested during the last 15 seconds of each set. One legged wall squats are still murder. Improved on a few chin ups and pull ups too….even with the chair pulled out a pinch.

4:30 "Shazam cookie"hemp seed chocolate chip cookie-my favorite-and kinda naughty. <gulp>
(6:45 workout) Emergen-C packet/water
8:15 shake (rice milk, soy and rice protein, banana, blueberries, spirulina)

moves

Kenpo---I have to say I enjoyed doing this solo. I felt so good I could've kept going

80's Dancing!----any witness will tell you I hardly ever stop (one must sip liquids you know). Almost 3 hours straight. Who knows-maybe I lost another pound despite my diet!

I can safely say, since starting this program, I have lost 12 pounds now. I was on 10 and hovering around that number for a while but for the last few days I have checked seen a loss of 12 pounds. I would like to see myself dive into the 120's but we'll see….those muscles are building too...

3 sm. triangles of toasted sprouted tortilla w/almond butter and lil' jelly
2 cups of miso w/ scallion and edamame, 3 bites of bread w/ Earth Balance, small sweet potato-(blech-not a good one either)

moves

Chest Shoulders and Triceps--- ugh this seemed extra hard today….maybe as I was out late using every bit of my energy last night and got 5 hours sleep? Well ,I mean I did everything the same or tiny bit better except for one exercise as my right elbow feels sore in certain positions. I had to break more. Saving the Abs for a morning "treat" tomorrow…haha.

moves

Plyo--- me-o----my-o. What a sweat fest.

did not make up ab ripper…whoops. Well, tomorrow is the next scheduled day then.

()()()()()()

I can't believe that I am in week 12 (of 13 weeks) and my first round of this 90-day program is officially completed. I am starting
to think about what to do upon completion. I am contemplating a fast before starting up again with a modified program. M won't be
able to do a fast with his work schedule but I think I'd like to do it to get more focused on my eating....I'll have to think about it as the days creep
closer. After all of my progress with building muscle, stamina, etc... I am a little hesitant...

moves

Yoga X---finally w/ M again. I did 6 extra pushups so that's good….um, still difficult and wearing on my "boring nerve". Overall tho I'd say I did pretty well….like many parts of it…working on breathing a lot more.


[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]

meals

1 banana
some org. crispy rice & puffed wheat cereal, soy milk
2 cups org. black coffee
brown basmati rice w/ pinto beans and veggies (burrito filling sans tortilla)
handful of triscuit like crackers,a couple almonds, a few chocolate chips
banana w/ Tbs almond butter
2 dates
(6:30 workout)
2 stuffed manicotti (w/tofu ricotta), 1 piece garlic bread on multi grain/seed baguette from the farmers market, NICE big salad (arugula,
broccoli, onion, pepper, tomato,red cabbage, hemp seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, agave mustard dressing, sea salt), and big surprise: red wine

I felt so empty and hungry for much of the day---even after my nice rice/bean/veggie meal! I was tempted to go extra bad but really, since I don't have anything
in the house extra bad...'cept maybe for some chocolate chips, I couldn't. I prob. would've been satisfied with more fruit but the cupboard is bare except for some apples
I just bought this afternoon from the farm market.

Holy, that was a super-enjoyable dinner! I'll repeat it tomorrow but with roasted eggplant as I have a bunch from the farm....and I'll even eat before 8 pm=whooo hoooo!
