Some bravery. No makeup, no sucking it in...these are my P90X starting point pics.

In comparison with my previous pics, I gotta like. My waist and hips are obviously smaller and you see my obliques more. The abs aren't as visible in these shots and I'm glad I switched over from the beaucoup cardio to P90X. I need something that'll both challenge me and continue to burn away the remaining fat while gaining the muscle def I want.

I'll provide another set of pics in 30 days. :)

Finishing up week 2 of round 1, phase 1 of P90X. I've been blogging faithfully about it and I'm already seeing serious fitness gains. Pushups on my toes! And more pushups on my toes! AWESOME

Delts are still on 8 lbs. I suppose that the more I work with those the better they'll get. They're definitely my weakest muscle, even my tris are on 10 lbs. Upright rows, certain bicep exercises, overhead press and such are all on 12 lbs. Certain chest/arm exercises are at 15 and some at 20.

I'm very aware that I now look thin, but I don't look *fit*. I want more muscle def. I realize that will take time, like everything....

Hey there! I'm doing awesome, but uber busy. Had to repeat week 1 of the second month of P90X, also running two fitness challenge groups and am preparing to start to send invites for the one starting in Jan. Also got major releases at work, book edits...and strangely enough am still on track for my fitness goals. It's insane. I plan to get some progress pics up at some point, not sure when.

How are you? :D

Haha, I'm good. I just noticed you usually keep up pretty well with the log and that you hadn't posted in awhile, so I thought I should check in. Keep up the good work! :D

Thanks! :D

Also, I forgot to mention...I'm finally going for it. I've signed up with ACT to start studying and go for my fitness training certification. :D

Good deal! No matter what happens in the end, when you look back on your life it will have been an achievement, and no one can take that away from you. :)

Indeed! Also looking into a plant-based nutrition certification, but that'll be a while down the road as it's NOT cheap by any means.

No update pics yet! I had two weeks of getting a sinus infection and recovering. I'm back into form, currently doing P90X+/P90X and the occasional TurboFire cardio workout. Give me a few more weeks and I'll have them. :)

Good news is that I'm mostly maintaining my weight loss. Given it's the holidays, I'm THRILLED. I've also adjusted my diet to a mostly raw one, trying to eliminate processed foods as much as possible. I can't help but notice the difference between how I feel after eating a towering salad of kale, baby spinach, hummus, alfalfa sprouts, pepita seeds, and Annie Organics goddess dressing and how I feel after chowing down on a really tasty but processed veggie meat substitute, and it's pretty profound. I will probably never be FULLY raw but I think certain foods need to be in my diet way less.

I also need to pick up some 25 lb dumbbells, the 20s are getting too light for certain exercises. In other news, I am still at 8 lbs for delt exercises so I'm thinking I need more work on those.

I've also applied for the 12 days of vegan bodybuilding and fitness, I think it could help a LOT. I have no accountability partners; I'm everyone else's accountability partner but could use some more expert help.

Today's food diary so far:

Breakfast: 1 scoop chocolate Vega whole meal optimizer, 3/4 cup mixed frozen berries, 1/2 scoop raw cacao powder, 1 cup mint chocolate soy milk.

Snack: 1/2 grapefruit

Lunch: salad consisting of kale, spring mix with herbs, alfalfa sprouts, 1/2 avocado, oil-free hummus, 2 TB Annie Organic's Goddess dressing, and diced cucumbers.

Snack: 2 handfuls of Taza chocolate covered almonds. I'm told the first handful doesn't count but the second one counts double. That gem is from my mom....

Snack: 1 tangerine and 2 mini apple pie Larabars

Dinner: A sandwich consisting of two slices of toasted Ezekiel bread, 2 chipotle lime Gardein tenders, and grilled veggies. I then had an extra two tenders with salsa.

I workout at night, no choice given my schedule. At least it's the time when I have the most energy! So no workout yet for today.

Food day so far:

Breakfast: 1 scoop chocolate Vega Whole Meal Optimizer, 1 small banana, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 scoop of raw cacao.

Snack: an orange

Lunch: the leaning tower of spring mix with herbs, kale, alfalfa sprouts, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, roasted salted pepita seeds, 1/2 avocado, oil free hummus, diced cucumbers, and Annie Organic's Goddess dressing.

Snack: 1/2 grapefruit, 1 tangerine, 2 mini chocolate chip cookie dough Larabars (Larabars, you are a simple tasty. how do I quit you)

Dinner: 2 steamed veggie dumplings, and mango black pepper Thai curry over steamed rice noodles with a glass of lemonade.

I got home from dinner with a friend of mine, personal drama ensued, and I was exhausted and annoyed so I ate two small chocolate chip cookies, went to bed and resolved to workout the next morning...which I did. :)
