The workouts are fantastic. Since i truly can't keep up with her, I'll often skip the timer and just do thenumber of reps she does (they're listed under the videos) in how ever much time it takes.....resting as needed but as little as possible.

I think I found the workout for me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZaf0CRBqRQ...
f the guy in the back makes an exercise video... sign me up... he's smiling like he drank a bucket full of sunshine and it's making me queasy.
I too went through goodness know's how many different BCP's and hormone treatments, and at one point steroids....I took loads of metformin(glucofage) and clomid(prolifen) and to no yield might I add. I had numerous amounts of blood work done...so much lab work, so many trips to the doctors office and the labs....until finally I just gave up. I even tried herbal pills (PCOS + by insulite labs) which seemed to work for a while, but taking that number of capsules a day was just not working well for me.....I had to stop.
Now that I have had my precious little baby boy(ALL NATURAL, no docs, no pills ) I am able to stop obsessing over this whole PCOS crap the doctors have been feeding me and have learned to focus more on what my body tells me it is ready to do and what it is able to handle, rather than listening to some doctor feed me some typical medical school textbook explanation of what "should" be going on inside of me...whether or not it actually is. I have come to the conclusion that (with good researching) PCOS is only a SYMPTOM of the problem....not the actual problem in itself. Now if you wanna know about "Syndrome X", lets talk.

Glad to have you aboard! You should start up a journal, make tons of friends and use it as an outlet to your whining, like I have :PNow if you wanna know about "Syndrome X", lets talk.
It's in the back of my mind but I'm not really concerned with my period right now. If by some miracle it comes back, then I must be doing something right... if not, then maybe that's for the better... I'm trying to focus on more pressing issue, like getting my diet and fitness in check :0
Thanks Kev. Sticking to a Primal diet is easy for me. At worst I have cheesecake, or eat too much nutbutter or too many nuts. Chocolate or wine occasionally, or incidental bleu cheese dressing. Typically it's easy for me, especially eating VLC. I'm afraid I've just gotten terribly lazy on the exercise front. I used to run 7 miles every morning. Now I'm lucky if I do anything at all. It's buggin the heck out of me. I know I need to do something. Anything. I'm just terribly bored, and by time I get out of work I don't want to fuss with it.
Meaty, if Warrior Diet doesn't mesh with you, no worries. I still sorta do it, consuming most of my food at dinner, with light snacking early in the day (coffee with coconut milk for breakfast, a light lunch of 200-300 calories.) It's comfortable enough at least.
i also wanted to tell you good goddang show on the outline of your challenge. it looks healthy physically as well as mentally and i know you need that. i also gotta echo the bodyrock series, it hink that would be good for you, too. or, i'll get in my car and drive out to you 3x a week. haha.
what made you decide on the warrior diet?
HANDS OFF MY BACON :: my primal journal
Vy's idea. I was objecting, I didn't think it can be as effective Eat Stop Eat (fasting 24 hours a few times a week, calorie cycling!) but then I thought to save on time.
Now I realize it's a bad idea, I was so hungry I thought of stuffing myself with anything edible (and even inedible- bread)... But I got my shit together and had:
-> can of salmon
-> 1 tbsp. mayo
That seemed to do it.
I also had salmon and salad for dinner, and now I'm having walnuts, strawberries and an apple.
The fasting was super effective for me so I don't see a reason to cause unnecessary stress on myself right now. When I'm ready, I'll try it again... 'till then I'm not giving up the free foodz
I found a few cool workouts... I even got a Pussy Cat Dolls dance workout Haha... Dang, those bitches are sexy... I don't know if to hate them or love them :/
So far I haz:
and other impressive stuff... I might change it up for uber-funness.
So, Batty, I'll see you Monday, Wednsday and Friday?
The warrior diet is tough to adjust to, Ori recommends eating something light during the day while your adjusting, like Fresh juice(the kind you make yourself with a juicer) salad, a boiled egg, or cottage cheese. What I found is that if I really want to stick with it I have to force feed myself at dinner time. I am talking a thanksgiving style meal (all primal of course) eat until I don't want to eat again, but If you already have a fasting routine that is working for you, why change it. I am playing with Warrior style eating now, for this month, but if I need to eat I am not afraid to break the plan.
Strive for healthy today.
