Yes! We are now through Day 17 of P90X! It feels so good to accomplish another day of healthy eating and a workout!
Today was Yoga! I have to be honest, Yoga is my least favorite workout - while I'm doing it! I just get so discouraged that I can't do so many of the moves. If it weren't such a long workout, I would have went back and tried some of them over again. At this point, I can't even remember which ones I struggled with so much, I think the twisted moon, or something like that. You stand on one foot, stretch the other leg and foot out behind you, and then bend down and twist your upper body, right? I think that is how it goes? I have most certainly noticed that I'm much more flexible and am able to keep my balance better now, on just this third yoga workout than I was on the first! That is definitely something to be excited about isn't it? My discouragement only lasted a couple of minutes, then I really started thinking about how much better I did than the very first time I did the Yoga, I felt so good about it! So remember how I said that Yoga is my least favorite workout 'while I'm doing it'? But let me tell you, it is my most favorite when I'm done doing it. My body feels GREAT! And I love knowing that it will feel good all day tomorrow as well. It feels loose, limber and lean!
I think we have done so well on our eating, we are following the book as closely as we can! We have not had a sweet, a soda, a potato, a french fry. . . . none of those! And I must tell you this, I received this awesome Christmas gift this year - an entire box of toffee! I'm not a big sweets eater (chips and salsa are my downfall, my all time favorite food), but I do love toffee. As soon as we started 17 days ago, I hid that toffee in the back of my fridge, and it has stayed there! We also have three bags of frozen cookie dough that sit in the freezer and scream out every time we get ice - they scream 'Eat me please' - but we haven't touched them! Yipeee! I'm so proud of us!
I'm going to give you an example of what I ate today, for breakfast I had two hard boiled egg whites and two pieces of turkey bacon at 7:00. At 9:00, I had my protein bar snack with a big glass of water. For lunch at 11:00 (yes, I have to take an early lunch) I had a salad with a grilled chicken breast, almond slivers and mandarin oranges. At 2:00 I had a snack of FF string cheese, turkey jerky, a couple of almonds and a clementine. As I was fixing dinner, I have to admit I was snacking on fruit! I had a little bit of apple and bananan and mango! Then for dinner we had the P90X Carribbean Jerk Pork Tenderloin Salad, it was so yummy!
Ok, enough talk about working out, for now anyway. Although I do love talking about P90X!
I don't know when I will get time to clay again, I'm hoping one night this week, but if I don't - I'm making time this weekend no matter what! I would love to get some Valentine things done! I'm not sure what - I have so many ideas running through my head, but time is running short, so where will I start? I'm not sure! I am constantly thinking about teddy bears lately, so maybe I'll try to make a couple of teddy bears?! Happy Claying to all my claying friends reading this - I hope you have time to clay! I'd love to hear from you, as to what you have been claying lately?!
No, I have not forgotten about the rest of my title of this post. I can't quite explain it, but my affinity for the color gray is back with avengence! I use to love the color gray when I was a teenager. Then I moved into browns and blues, but lately, I notice everything gray and I love it - it's the weirdest thing! I went shopping the other day, and I kid you not, I purchased three new gray tops?! What the heck? I don't know, but I'm just going to go with it!
If you would like to read an awesome blog about P90X, please take a moment to check out my new friend Jen's blog! She started out her blog on day one of P90X, and she takes so much time to include what she has eaten and her food plan for the week, including recipes! It's so awesome!

Oh, one more thing - I just have to share this with you - I think it is the cutest idea, I sure wish there would have been something like this around when my children were young!
