Lucy - Day 2, Phase 3 - Oh, My Aching Body

After my week of jury duty with no exercise, I started getting back into it last Saturday. I started with a stretching workout from Ted's P90X series, which was a great way to jump-start my muscles.

Sunday was Jillian Michaels' ab workout. I couldn't even laugh yesterday without being in pain. But it's a good pain.

Monday morning, I started with Jillian's metabolism booster workout. Only got about 15 minutes in. Boo, I know. So, I decided to work out with Ted last night doing arms and shoulders on P90X. What a great workout! It was an hour long, and we both kept each other motivated. I had a hard time lifting my arms this morning to brush my hair, but it's all good.

I had every intention of getting up this morning and doing Jillian's 30 Day Shred video, but I have to admit, I'm wiped out! Ted and I are doing her yoga video tonight, so I'm still covered.

We're trying to make sure we get enough protein while doing some weight training while also watching protein intake based on the diet. I think next week, we'll take a look at each workout per day, and plan our menu.

Speaking of food, the 2nd day on Phase 3 includes whole wheat and high fiber cereal with almond milk (better WITH food...not really very good drinking it alone), whole wheat spaghetti with butternut squash meat sauce & salad, and crock-pot chuck roat with pureed cauliflower for dinner. We're avoiding fruit today since there's cereal and pasta involved.

Planning menus has become much more of a family meeting than just me putting them together. We talk about what we have in the fridge, freezer and pantry so we don't have to buy extra. Ted actually came up with most of the dinner ideas and a couple lunch ideas for this week. We also planned on cooking several meals, or at least pieces of meals, at one time to save time and money later, and make sure we have the time for workouts.

Yes, it's taken up our lives. But we both feel better, are losing weight, and are attempting to make this a lifestyle, not just something we do for 51 days.

By the way...Ted, I'm so proud of you for sticking to this diet with me, and for deciding on your own when it was right for you to exercise. We're making changes that are giving us longevity...together.

  7. Boat Insurance Average CostThe average cost of insurance
    is determined with the help of three basic factors, that are, the size of the boat, age of the boat and fixtures that are fitted on to the boat.
    The size of the boat is usually specified in feet and
    is used to determine the basic premium and cost. For example, the annual premium for
    a 25 feet boat can range from about $300 to $500 per annum.

    There are also insurance policies for smaller boats which cost lesser,
    even lesser than $50 annually. Apart from that, local governments and
    some state governments also mandate insurance compliance for boats.

  8. I've heard you may make money off of advertisers. Is it really a significant enough amount to allow it to be worth the cost? Or does the real benefit in blogging originate from the exposure you get? I'm a bellydancer and I dance at private parties and events.

    How could I use a blog to get more business? I've heard about individuals who have products to market using blogs, but I you do not have a "product", just me!.
