While we were in Florida last week, my hubby ordered something that I was VERY skeptical about. I told him I don’t know how many times that he probably shouldn’t have ordered it, but the deed was already done. I was thinking there is NO WAY I would use what he ordered–until today. What I am referring to is the P90X system! Now, before you say I’m stupid let me just say that after watching a couple of the workouts, I am pleasantly surprised! Before watching, I was thinking this is going to be WAY too hard core for me. Also, how would I get my love of yoga in, and what if I couldn’t do it or if I push too hard. Well, from what I watched it IS pretty hard core, BUT Tony Horton stresses to do what you can and that’s enough! I like him better already 🙂 One of the things I am MOST excited about is he uses A LOT of YOGA–YEEESSS!!!! Even in the Cardio x, there were sun salutations.
Another reason I am willing to give this a shot is to have something my hubby and I can work towards together. AND, honestly, I have been in an exercise rut lately. We are hoping to start on Monday, so if you don’t hear anything from me after that–you’ll know I died–lol!!
Changing the subject now, have you ever woke up starving but NOTHING sounded good? That happened to me this morning! I went to the fridge about a dozen times trying to see if anything seemed like it would hit the spot and–nothing. I finally just decided to go with a regular breakfast of eggs and yogurt even though I wasn’t really feeling it.
That was all fine and good but about two hours later I needed 2nd breakfast.
Since I am not doing spinach any more due to oxalates, I have been making green smoothies with pure spirulina powder. My life without spinach isn’t so bad afterall 🙂 I usually use water, 1 cup fruit, 1 Tbs. ground flax, sunflower seeds, maca powder, spirulina and raw stevia–yummy, and holds me for hours–usually. I have been drinking this and lots of fresh veggie juice since I have been home from vacation and it is really good for my tummy.
Oh, and look what I found at the health food store yesterday–SO excited!
I know, it doesn’t take much to excite me! Sometimes I just crave a good burrito! This didn’t stay together very well when I cooked it, but it hit the spot!
I was also excited to find these little goodies:
I LOVE the Raw Revlolution bars but it takes me days to eat one. The mini ones are perfect!
Last but not least, I’ll leave you with a new ADORABLE picture of the babies 🙂 They are growing so fast! I could just sit and watch them forever. TOO CUTE!!
Hope everybody has a GREAT FRIDAY!!! I’m SO glad my work week is over and now I have the next FIVE days off–Hallelujah 😉
Have you ever attempted P90X? If so, what were your thoughts?
Any new food finds lately?
