Day 13 P90X, CHOCOLATE!!!!

A couple of weeks ago I entered a Scavenger Hunt over at Marshy's blog to try and win a copy of DietGirls new book. I didn't win the book, but I did get runner-up! My prize arrived yesterday. A package of MallowPuffs, Arnott's Mint Slice Biscuits, a BAR of Whittaker's cashew nut chocolate and 4 CD's filled with workout music!! For reasons we all know I gave the MallowPuffs and Biscuits to the Hubby and Kids. The bar of chocolate is mine, ALL MINE, muahahahaha!! I am putting it away for a treat every now and then. (Unless I go crazy with it and then Hubby has full power to take it away!) The music came at the most perfect time! With all this walking I am listening to my IPod all the time... and the same music over and over again. Today I have all new music to 'walk' and roll to! THANK YOU MARSHY!!

I barely managed my 6 miles yesterday... the last 3 miles were slow and lacking *umph*.. but I was moving (not sitting on the couch watching TV and mindlessly eating) and that's what counts. My legs are sore today.. but I have noticed that they are slimming down. Some of my old pants are getting really loose in the thigh area... hopefully that will happen soon in the waist area!

I have been drinking Slim Fast for my breakfast lately... something I found out last night is not a good things when you are lactose intolerant! Doh! **sigh** now I have to find something else that is quick and easy and yummy to drink in the morning. (and is a meal replacement) Sometimes trying to eat healthy is a pain in the butt...no wonder we ended up eating what we did, it was easy to!

Today's Plan:

Kenpo X
walk, walk, walk

Focus: Water, Calories

Its time for spring cleaning...and that should burn about 5,000 calories!! LOL

I think in my present state I can guess what that morning shake did to you!! ;-)

Have you ever thought of making smoothies for breakfast? You could use soy milk couldn't you? I dont know anything about being lactose intolerant, but I'm sure there's got to be something you could use.
And eat a bite of that chocolate for me will ya?! =)

Yes, there are some days when the ole workout lacks the "uumph" factor, but you're totally right...you were out there doing it anyhow!!! For breakfast, I will typically eat a Luna bar or a Clif bar...neither of which has any milk in it. Luna bars are about 180 cals., chock full of vitamins, too! Clif bars are a bit more substantial... 250-280 cals, and also full of good stuff. Both are .99-1.25 each, or you can buy by the case.

Chocolate with cashews?! Oh.....man......mmmmmm....that sounds so good. Take a bite for me, too!

Great going with the walking. I keep feeling like reading about your exercising will make me feel lazy enough to actually get up and do it, too....
Keep it up...I think I'm almost there...
haha
:)
Seriously, though...I admire you and your dedication. I honestly hope to be like you....one of these days...
