Started P90X

Hi everyone!!!
Today is day 3 of the P90X Challenge!! This morning I did Shoulders & Arms and Ab Ripper X. I felt soo good doing the entire workout :) I woke up at 3:50am and thought "let's get it done." It was all I could think about, I couldn't go back to sleep even if I tried! So I got up and BROUGHT IT!!! I was all over this workout ;))
Tomorrow is Yoga X. I can't wait. 90-minutes of intense yoga :))

As far as eating gos, I have really been focusing on consuming alot of protein. I've been working out hard and know how important it is to fuel your body with the amino acids :)
So far so good. I have also been taking a nap almost everyday! Ha! No joke. Getting up at 4am every day catches up to me around 1pm, so I lay down with my girls and snooze for 2-3 hours :) I LOVE it!!

Tonight I for dinner I had Couscous, Mixed Veggies and 1 1/2 vegan flame grilled patties. So YUM!!

Although I have ate Vegan tonight, I have changed my diet a little. I have been consuming egg-whites and whey protein and am totally fine with it. Friends have told me about cartoned egg-whites but am just not liking that idea. I like to see on the carton "Organic cage-free eggs."

I bought some Vega Protein Powder today at Sprouts and had a glass of it for snack... it wasn't bad... needs some fruit added to it though, so I think I'll make it as a smoothie instead ;)
OH!!!! Brendan Brazier will be at my Sprouts on July 11th at 11 o'clock!!! I can't believe it!! I'm reading his Thrive book right now :))

Well everyone, Hope you all have a FABULOUS holiday weekend!!

Hey Girl!!!!

So happy and excited to see all the energy you have for P90X. 4am? You are totally insane, but I loooove it!!!!

And as for your diet, I know you'll probably receive some flack from hardcore vegans, but you knw what, I say do what feels right. My boyfriend once asked me if I wanted the whole world to be vegan, and I told him that sure, it would make my life so much easier and be great for the planet too, but it's just not gonna happen in my lifetime. I'm unwavering on the vegan part of my lifestyle, but I fluctuate between raw and cooked vegan because that works best for me.

Keep rocking it, girl!!! You are too awesome for words!!!

Your support means everything to me :))

Hey Malynda!

3:50? You go girl! When I did my first round of P90X I always did it early and felt great!

As for the vegan/vegetarian switch, don't sweat it:) As a Raw vegan I know it's my choice just as much as it's another persons choice not to be:)

The only suggestion I would give, and you can take it or leave it, is not to put too much focus on protein. A lot of protein puts a bit of strain on your kidneys. I have been building a good bit of muscle just eating 40-50 grams a day. Just a suggestion:)

Can't wait to hear your results! Way to bring it!

Oh really!!!
Thank you so much for the advice sweetie. I'm still learning and am leaving myself open to suggestions, so thank you very much for your input.
I can't thank everyone enough for showing me support with my new vegetarian choices, it really means alot to me.
I'll be posting some examples of a day's worth of intake :))
Thanks for your support!!!
