    no animal protein

    I recently cut waayyyyyy back on the animal protein, less dairy. More beans, fruits, greens, grains...the way I like to eat. It's been liberating, to say the least. I'm not binge eating like I was eating cottage cheese, chicken, tuna, etc every day. The dairy is kind of tough for me...

    i'm going to do it

    kariev: Mind if I ask what your rotation/split will look like? I'm looking for ideas, here and I know I look better with more weights. I did the Pyramid Combo bonus workout 2-3x a week with short cardio in between and had great results. Wonder why I don't do this again? LOL! Thanks, btw!

    When it rains, it pours!

    Kathryn: I don't know you well, but it is heartbreaking to lose a beloved pet. You probably feel like you let her down, but please don't feel guilty. She knows you cared. My neighbors leave their 2 year old labradoodle in the backyard all day, to get snowed and sleeted on until they "remember...

    Any Raw Fooders Here?

    I've dabbled with Raw off and on. I have Jennifer Cornbleet's book and I really like it and I've been eyeballing Alissa Cohen's book for quite some time. The reason I decided to look into raw was really, the, um, desserts. I have a terrible sweet tooth and I figured at least with those...

    P90X, injuries and no measurable strength gains

    Sorry, you're hurting, Michelle. I had to stop P90X after the recovery week because my shoulders were grinding. I don't want to get flamed, but here goes, I think the system is too shoulder heavy. I think for me or some people doing power yoga after Shoulders and Arms is a little too much...
