Thanks! My day was taken up by that crazy, will be doubling up on my workouts tomorrow.

One thing is for sure: my next job will give me the time and space to write, workout, and coach or I will not take it.

Food...could've done better but at least I got more fruit in me. But the stress is definitely taking its toll. I must correct this immediately before I start sliding backwards.

Sorry to hear about your job! I was laid off in November so I can empathize. Best of luck in the job hunt!

Today was lots of fruit smoothies, also went to the Organic Garden to have some of their raw fettucini alfredo made with zucchini pasta. Quite good!

I am avoiding doing many things, including "homework" and a "test" from one of the numerous companies I'm currently interviewing with. I greatly resent being treated like I'm an entry level kid coming out of college who may not have a programming clue, but apparently the way I think programmers should be reviewed and how other companies feel they should be reviewed don't exist on the same planet. This is part of why I want to leave this industry behind me permanently and with great speed.

Part of this avoidance involves some ChaLEAN Extreme. Going downstairs now to push play on Burn Circuit 3. Woo!

Thanks! Good news is that I have a ton of prospects and work in a really high demand field. Bad news is that I can't wait to leave this industry. I really wanted my last job to be my last programming job, but I don't quite have the numbers yet to do that. I'm working on it!

Today's Burn it Off/Recharge from ChaLEAN Extreme. Eating today went way better, avoided numerous temptations and ate mostly fruit, fruit smoothies, and had some veggie soup.

Final interview with the 100% work from home job of my dreams Wed. Wish me luck!

Made myself a lovely smoothie to power me for today's interview! Wooo! Four bananas, 3/4 cup frozen strawberries, 1 cup light chocolate soy milk, 1 scoop chocolate Vega Whole Meal Optimizer, 1 scoop raw cacao.

Lunch: romaine lettuce wraps with tasty sprouted lentil salad for stuffing! Recipe:

Lettuce wraps! For the filling: soak sprouted lentils overnight, drain. Add sliced carrots, cucumber, roma tomatoes, fresh basil, 1 small clove garlic. Add ingredients to food procressor. Eat. Enjoy.

Picture! Enjoy the tasty.

Two snacks, one was two honeybell oranges, other two bananas.

Workout was Burn Circuit 1

Heading over to friends', there's going to be an ordering of Thai...I'm going to do my best with this one, they do have steamed rice noodles, maybe something tofu and veggie to go with it? Something hopefully with no oil. :-/ I've had very little in the way of fat today so far so I think I may be okay. Hopefully.

Yesterday was a rest day and I decided to take it. Plus I had to get my front brakes fixed. Whee!

Today is I think Burn Circuit 2, need to check the calendar. I'll post it once I do it.

Two final interviews today, one from the job I really want.

I am currently under a TON of stress, recruiters acting like jealous, possessive boyfriends over my other time committments, parents being neurotic about my choice of job, clients being neurotic about their own eating habits...I'm ready to hit play on today's workout once the dust settles then do nothing but play World of Warcraft. I'm kinda fried, and people are driving me crazy today.

Thanks! That phone interview was wow, grueling. They spared me no quarter on some of those tech questions. Gah. I did well on a lot of them so fingers crossed, and onto the second final interview.

Burn Circuit 2, DONE. I crashed early yesterday, I was totally drained.

The day is mostly fruit smoothies and tea so far. That doesn't sound like a lot until I tell you that 7 bananas, 5 dates, and strawberries were involved. Oooh.

Another interview tomorrow, and I have a good feeling...

Interview went well, fingers crossed. Had one rejection and have one offer but am sitting on it, it's a serious paycut and just don't know how I feel about that. :-/ I could do better.

I've barely had time to go eat today, going to get some food in me and work out sometime this eve. My worse case scenario? I double up tomorrow. I do NOT like to do that. I've already missed Wed due to the insanity and swapped out my Sunday rest day for it. Ugh. Ugh. End this misery now, please. :P

Oh yeah, I made that zucchini pasta again last night, have leftovers of it today. This time I added spinach, which turns it into a really unappealing color but it's oh so tasty. I balanced the flavor well with extra basil, mmmm

Hi. Do you think the CLX is a better workout than th P90X? I am considering ordering to change things up. Thank you!
