    Hmm.. No day 2 work out, today's challenge is to try a green smoothie.. Soooooo I'm going to throw one together this evening! I did go walking for about 20 minutes today, which is pitifully minimal.

    Food wise: My favorite tortillas are on a massive sale today and tomorrow, so I'm stocking up now while they're $2 off their normal cost! <3 Fresh corn/flour tortillas whenever I want?! Yes please!

    I got all pouty because people called me skinny at a party and it really discouraged me... and the truth is they're probably right. At the same time, this morning I realized it's up to me to fix that if I really want to...

    Today's challenge was to drink enough water. I'm tweaking the challenges though so I can get back into weight training a bit faster. So, I'm thinking for this week:
    - Tonight I'm going to do my workout as scheduled--the day 1 exercise with the bonus circuit.
    - Tomorrow, I'm riding my bike 6.4 miles to school and back again. Then I think I'll do the pizza party workout as soon as I get home.
    - Tuesday I'll do P90X arms training circuit + abs
    - Wednesday I'll go running and do some betty rocker moves on the way back.
    - Thursday will be biking 6.4 miles and little else because I have a major exam the next day.
    - Friday I'll do p90x legs weight training + abs
    - Saturday is yoga/stretch day.
    - Sunday I ain't doin NOTHIN'.

    ok...
    are you trying to gain weight?
    "skinny" can be a relative term.

    Generally speaking I associate it with negativity. To emphasize this point, I'll point out a conversation at dinner the next day after the party:
    Person 1: "Not like so-and-so.. she's skinny."
    Person 2: "Yeah I don't want a girl that's just bones and skin."
    Person 1: "I mean, she's naturally like that, but it's just too thin."

    It's just not generally a great thing in some aspects of the South, and I play into that.. I don't mind people being skinny, but it isn't something I find attractive in myself nor something desirable as I exercise.

    Remember all those ambitions I had for working out? I don't know wtf it is with school constantly getting in the way of it all... I really don't. My book came in, and I'm hoping I can still go running tonight depending on how fast I read it all without my brain exploding.

    I met my goal weight a couple of weeks ago. I thought I'd try to gain back some muscle but I didn't do it very disciplined.

    I am going to try to get my body fat percentage down, continuing on the weight loss--I won't be underweight when I am done. I am estimating another three to four weeks. The health reason is that, even though I am off my blood pressure medication, it is a bit elevated.

    The loss of muscle, however, means I need to increase the intensity or duration of exercise. I haven't decided yet what to do. I think I'll do 30 minutes on a treadmill, and/or wearing a pedometer and making sure I am actually still get 8 miles of walking a day.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    So proud of my sister! She agreed to start a fitness challenge led by yours truly! So I'm giving her small goals each week. This week: do one work out appropriate for post-baby stuff this week, drink 5 glasses of water a day, switch to healthier drinks, and eat a clean foods healthy breakfast each morning. Seems like a lot, but it's pretty simple..

    As for me, I need to stop skipping meals. That's usually not a problem for me, but this school schedule has me pretty haggard trying to save money AND do just as well. ._.p I am eating fairly clean, have the past few days (eating black bean burgers I made and frozen brown-rice dinners with power greens salads when everyone else is eating pizza) so that's good... I need to kick up my water intake though. I think not working out doesn't help that.

    I reached last weeks goals.
    It's harder this week because with all the appointments for doctors, chiropractors and such after work, by the time I get home, my stomach is growling and it's late.
    My goal is to exercise first before I eat because I am more likely to be motivated to do it right away and it's so hard to exercise on a full stomach.
    I will have to re-think my plan, but I think I will have to exercise 3 times a week.

    I've been eating really healthy staying on track and eating 50% clean food right now! My snacks are all home grown/raw/homemade and while breakfast is processed it is minimally processed and really delicious.

    I was trying to think of healthy snacks to have at my nephew's birthday, which I'm planning, and I think these are going to be what I make (though I'll switch out the raw pumpkin for pumpkin puree) for thanksgiving as my contribution. I'm going to find a way to make my pumpkin bread stuffing healthier as well... I know I can do it! That stuff is RIDIC on calories. and oh so yummy.



    Today: I'm working out with my sister whether she likes it or not. And getting her ass back into gear for posting her food online.
