    is a bit inadequate…it's all good now.

  6. Welcome!


    Most vegans that I know personally are not too keen on PETA nowadays. Also most have or would like to have companion animals(rescued) in their lives. The need is overwhelming. We have a cat rescued from the streets in Nova Scotia 15 yrs ago, a very needy kitty(very dog-like) from a shelter 8 yrs ago, and a sick/injured/starving* cat I found at the farm I belong to 10 months ago. I planned to foster that last kitty but....somehow she had other plans!


    *she's healthy now btw

  7. The reason I said about the week off is multiple people that I knpw that use that program do that so i thought it was part of the program. As far as yoga dvd's I like the shiva rea ones where you can create you own workout or do them as they are programmed. I have a few of those. I also like the Jivamukti ones that I have.



    Thanks! I so know absolutely NOTHING about yoga. I figure I'll see what the libraries have too.


    My husband doesn't want to take a week off I know that. I'd be good for a few days for sure but even tho it can be difficult to fit in at a decent hour... I don't want to break from the routine that I've established. It had been sorely missing from my life for sooooo long- gotta stay in da groove..... Whether I end up going for roller derby or not.


    I'm going to check out p90x Plus too tho I heard it isn't quite as intense or have the same "fun" quality.

  8. i thought that was part of the program where you take a week off and then start another tour of it.


    Well, you can certainly do that, but it isn't part of the program as stated in the given info booklet. We are definitely continuing in some

    capacity; modifying workout here and there...but not as we did on the initial run.


    I need to find some alternate Kenpo or related dvds....yoga....plyo too.

  9. 9-19-09

    Legs and Back---feeling really good about this one! I felt fine except for when I was stretching at the end as my wrist has felt a little out since yesterday with different movements….. Weird that I didn't feel it during 8 sets of pull-ups!

    in the house extra bad...'cept maybe for some chocolate chips, I couldn't. I prob. would've been satisfied with more fruit but the cupboard is bare except for some apples

    I just bought this afternoon from the farm market.

    I can't believe that I am in week 12 (of 13 weeks) and my first round of this 90-day program is officially completed. I am starting

    to think about what to do upon completion. I am contemplating a fast before starting up again with a modified program. M won't be

    able to do a fast with his work schedule but I think I'd like to do it to get more focused on my eating....I'll have to think about it as the days creep

    closer. After all of my progress with building muscle, stamina, etc... I am a little hesitant...

    80's Dancing!----any witness will tell you I hardly ever stop (one must sip liquids you know). Almost 3 hours straight. Who knows-maybe I lost another pound despite my diet!


    I can safely say, since starting this program, I have lost 12 pounds now. I was on 10 and hovering around that number for a while but for the last few days I have checked seen a loss of 12 pounds. I would like to see myself dive into the 120's but we'll see….those muscles are building too...
