As the day went on, my legs, bum, arms, shoulders and abs (pretty much everywhere!)are pretty sore from the p90x video. I am still going to some elliptical tonight because I need my cardio for weight loss.

Oh and I weighed in and found I was down 1.2 pounds!

Also, I forgot to put my stats on my first post so here they are:

Vegan since August 2009 (saw Food Inc. and realized I needed a change to my diet. I went from full on meat,dairy and egg eater to vegan practically overnight. Once, I educated myself on factory farming, health issues, environmental issues..I could never go back!)
Age 30
Height 6'0"
Starting weight on Jan 1st 167.2
Goal weight on Jan 31st...157.2
Final Goal weight 145

I am really focused on exercising 6-7 days a week and even cut out sugars (which is really hard for me) and alcohol (also hard...I enjoy a good beer!)

So far...so good. I feel great and I wonder why I stopped exercising for so long! The muscle pain I am feeling today is something that I haven't felt in awhile. I was even wishing I could go out and run (which is something I hate!) but it is way too cold for me and knowing me, I will slip on the ice and break my neck! So, I'll just wait for the spring....In the mean time....elliptical!

Thanks! I will do 6 days a week at least. The yoga video really killed me. It's been about a year since I last did yoga...not good!

Today is going to be a hectic day so I planned for a big breakfast.

B-"buttermilk" pancakes from Vegweb with a coffee and almond milk
S-3 Clementines
Late Lunch-9 bean tomato soup
S-green apple
D-Few fries.

WO-arms/shoulder/chest -hand weights

Not the best food or work out day today. Was out all evening in a pretty non vegan environment and I forgot to pack snacks. Also, my lower back is sore so I need to get better quick!

B-Shredded wheat and PB Puffins with Almond milk/Coffee with Almond milk
S-rice cakes with PB and Raisins
L-Leftover Tofu Scramble
S-Clementines
D-Polenta with black beans and salsa/Salad with Hot pickled eggplants

I also had Fruit jellies at work. It is mostly fruit but it is full of sugar. I caved but I needed a sweet treat and that was easily available. My sugar cravings are pretty crazy. If it is around, It's really hard for me to resist. The good things is that this is my 1st sugar treat all year and normally I'd have something almost everyday!

I skipped my work out because I was busy and mostly tired. I know....not a good reason. This week is pretty crazy for me and I won't be home much in the evening to do my work outs. Plus, my work holiday party is tomorrow... I will not be drinking and spoke to the kitchen about making a light vegan meal for me. Let's see what they come up with!
