Let's All Cheer for Adam, Okay Cheering's Over*

We're doing P90X Lean (Week 5, Day 2), and I can't believe that I'm still at it. I am getting to the point where I shout out all of Tony H's jokes before he says them (which is annoying to my husband); and it's starting to annoy me that I have to warm up for every cardio workout with a little yoga ... and I love Yoga! But not in my workout shoes. My mat looks like my dog used it for a chew toy.

I have noticed that my jeans are loose, which is great except for the fact that I have to hitch them up every few minutes so that the crotch isn't riding at my knees. I look like my Dad. He was the real impetus for Pants on the Ground.

What's not working for me: reading the recipe for vegan chocolate on Charlotte's website. It is so easy to make my four-year-old can do it - by himself. Yes, I made some with toasted coconut today. I don't keep Agave nectar, but I did have Pennsylvania Maple syrup. I only used 2 tsp. though. maple syrup is really sweet. I thought that I didn't have any sweets in the house, but with this recipe I do. Ugh.

News on the fridge is weird. We turned it off for a couple of days, but left it plugged in for the water filter. I turned it on for some reason and it works perfectly. So, we're okay for now, Whew! Also good: I still haven't taken the dorm fridge we were using out of the kitchen, so that's 3square feet that I don't have to vacuum every morning. And it looks so pretty sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor. Maybe I'll knit a cozy for it so no one will notice it.

Great job sticking with Tony H's workout. Those look brutal!

Thanks, It's not as bad as you think, the difficulty is hyped up a bit - but the chest,shoulders & triceps is really hard for me because of all of the push-ups. Definitely something I need to work on.
Your blog is really inspiring for me as I try to make consistent healthy choices.

Am exhausted just reading about all this exercise! But seriously, am a bit jealous...

I'd go for crotch at the knees over undo top button anyday! We're going into Winter and I've already started putting on my Winter weight :-s
Cooking is not my forte so I never choose an easy recipe because if I fail at that then I feel REALLY useless,lol
To answer your query re using the spray gun... I had a few teething problems like the paint spluttering out but I think I fixed this by thinning it down a little more. I also discovered my compressor isn't munty enough but even with all that and the hassle of cleaning the gun after it was soooo much quicker and I would recommend it any day:-)
