Restarting as of today, and revamped my diet past two weeks. I have a MUCH more active lifestyle which I owe to my new work commute plus all of the snow shoveling, so I say BRING IT!!

Today is Yoga X, just had my Vega whole meal optimizer and I'm ready to go!

As for the new work commute, I got laid off on 1/5, interview following day with kick ass company, final interview the day after with same kick ass company which they let me know they would hire me to KICK ASS, then I got the official job offer than evening. Fastest and best job search ever! Beer fridge, great location, awesome people to work with, fun project, and it's even a serious pay increase.

Only prob is new schedule, I tend to get back home late but come in a bit later, too. Commute is also chopped in half, takes me 30 min or 45 at most if I go with bus versus commuter rail. I've managed to get my body used to having an extra hour in the morning so will spend it exercising.

X Stretch, sounds like it'll be a breeze but wow, he works you. But I really needed that! Every muscle of my body is sore, I swear. Even my quads and that takes effort!

Did Chest and Back from P90X this morning, awesome!! Coupled with the much more active lifestyle due to my commute to and from work, I should be getting into better shape in no time.

If I have time tonight, I'd like to give the Fountain of Youth yoga a shot. It's half the time as Yoga X, so much more convenient.

I'm glad the new scheduling change worked out in your favor as well as the ridiculous amount of snow across the country. That consistency and cool p90x and of course being vegan is a triple win for ya ;)

I did the same workout today! The gym and most everywhere else is closed today so I went out and shoveled the front of my house and my neighbors. The snow drifts were about 3 feet deep!

Yeah, when your clothes underneath are drenched due to sweat and not the snow, you know it was a gooood workout, lol.

Snow drifts here are as tall as me, and I'm 5'4".

Shoulders and Arms from P90X workout, left out the "bonus" round cause I already was running late, barely made train. Note to self: drink more water before bed, make sure bottle is refilled by bed, I CANNOT get up in the morning if mildly dehydrated. No brain, no energy, no nada.

Had a nice wrap from Au Bon Pain for lunch and infinitely prefer the falafel salads I've been eating at Souper Salad; I actually feel satisfied and have had enough food versus this little wrap that's lots of wrap with a little bit of veggies and a tiny bit of hummus. Am now still hungry. :P

Thanks! I took the weekend off, I got some crazy injury to the tendons that connect to my thumb. Heading to a PT that specializes in sports injuries tomorrow to see what they can do for me. It no longer hurts but it's still swollen so I'm taking it easy and being careful on my workouts.

Yesterday was Legs and Back, today was Shoulders and Arms. Skipping Chest and Back until I know I'm okay doing pushups.

Abs/Core Plus this morning, hoping to do Ab Ripper X tonight.

Tomorrow I board a plane, so hoping to work in Fountain of Youth yoga before I have to leave. It would mean getting up pretty early, however!

The place I'm going to has a fitness center and pool, not sure if pool is indoors or not. I'm very used to video routines but try to take what I learn and apply it to fitness rooms and such. Suggestions are welcomed.

Changed the title. I just started the 5 day Inferno for Turbo Fire and plan to get into the regular schedule afterward this coming Monday.

I LOVE IT!!! It's just what I was looking for--fun, high energy, and balanced cardio. YESSSS!

Today is day 3 of the 5 day Inferno Turbo Fire program. WHEE! I am going to yoga class first then coming home to do the Turbo Fire exercises.

I really, really, really love this workout program. But wow, am I sore. All over. No joke.

And because I know you must miss my food entries, here's yesterday's:

Breakfast: Two scoops chocolate Vega Whole Meal Optimizer, one banana, one cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and ice in a blender

Lunch: Artichoke and spinach hummus, cucumbers, and a serving of Tofulettes lemon-garlic tofu bites in a Joseph's pita wrap

Snack: 2 long celery stalks with all natural crunchy PB, one small pita with sundried tomato and basil hummus

Dinner: 1 serving veggie casserole, 2 servings of roasted kale chips, and 1 serving of Gardein's chipotle lime crispy tenders

Finished the Inferno program, now onto the regular TF schedule. Tacking on yoga, dancing, and P90X where I can.

Did day 2 of the regular TF program. Also tacked on P90X's Chest & Back workout. So did HIIT 15, Stretch 10, and Chest and Back. Nicely balanced. :)
