I buy brown rice large shell noodles and stuff them. They come out great. Or you can buy the lasagna noodles and just roll them instead of manicotti. I think the brown rice noodles come out well. Usually I find them in the gluten free section.

moves

and finally,
Yoga X- good stuff, good stuff. I can hardly believe it, but I did waaay more pushups then ever during this workout...
During every vinyasa thing they say, you may do a push up from plank to downward dog. Up until today I had
gotten to about 5. It was an accomplishment that I had been able to do all of the Chaturanga moves…I attempted 22 pushups out of around 26 and I did it! This means I did around 48 push-up type moves. Yeah! Maybe having 2 days off was a good thing for my performance?
Either way-I graduated p90x I guess!

moves

trying a dvd I picked up= beginning Tai Chi for 40 minutes. Never tried it before so it is a little confusing the more tired I was getting listening to the directions and trying to mimic the instructor's postures.

yard work---stretching, squatting, pulling...stuff like that.

Back to the beginning tomorrow---with Chest and Back.
Still have to take pics and all that stuff. Thursday when M has off, we'll do all that so we can take similar shots as day 1. I HATE when the lighting is all dramatic in the "after" pics. So annoying. I want to make it as similar as possible and I look as pasty as I did then too---no miracle tan here.

moves

1st week completed on the 2nd round of my program. This is my day of rest...and soreness, like every other day....

Pretty much stuck to the the regular program this past week but missed 1 1/2 Ab Ripper workouts.
We did take "after" pics but the lighting wasn't great-oh well. We haven't had a chance to do the fit test/measurments again so we'll do
it tomorrow morning to see what our improvements are hmmmm.

I still have yet to write down (type out) the first workout and last workout stats for comparisons too…!

So I got some dvd's from the library---none of them were what I was looking for...and I thought they were due yesterday or today.....turns out they were due
last week and I own $18!!!! Damn. Might as well bought one I really wanted, dumb ass!

meals

fruit salad- 1/2 apple, 1/2 orange, 1/2 kiwi, banana, date
1 1/2 slices of sprouted bread toast w/ earth balance, 2 mugs of org. black coffee

Chest & Back---night time work-out---killer killer killer. Push ups felt all kinds of difficult today prob. because I took the 90 day fitness test or "results test". I did "eh" and also "awesome" according to me.

Well it's not that complicated or long:

deep Standard Pushups
before: 4
after: 12

Pull ups (unassisted)
before: nope
after: nope, not yet!!! shoot.

Vertical Leap
before:14 "
after:15 1/2 "

Toe Touch (testing flexibility, sitting)
before: 0 (just touched toes)
after:+ 1 1/4"

Wall Squat (chair position against wall-timed until butt hits floor)
before: 2:08 minutes
after: 3:29

In & Outs (seated, hands on floor. Raise feet off ground and bring knees in towards chest- straighten
legs back out and repeat movement w/o touching floor)
before: 31
after: 70

Bicep Curls
before: r 20 each/ w 15lb
after: 40 each/ w 15 lb.…..w/ 3, 3 sec. breaks. Felt a little nauseous after pushing on everything else so hard)

The only thing I didn't do was the "resting heart rate" ad "heart rate maximizer". Ran out of time prior to work.
I stink at doing this with just my fingers on my neck. I would love a heart monitor for this job.
