Laura, good luck, do you keep your carbs really low? Sometimes a little starchy goodness can be a good recovery snack for a glycogen-depriving workout.
Today... Was supposed to be resting, because Zuzanna really kicked my ass in those twenty minutes yesterday morning. Those plank lifts were no joke. But I got REALLY good sleep last night, and my energy told me to get my ass on my bike for a quick 30 minute ride, and I did the whole thing with no hands. It's surprising how much more your legs have to work when your arms aren't there to assist. For an added bonus, I extended both my arms overhead and tried to keep them very straight and sit with SUPERB posture the whole time while pedaling. My heart was POUNDING!
Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.
I did a HIIT, aka Spring once in a while...
I skipped about 25 meters, then ran backwards 25 meters... did that again and then did 30 jumping jacks. I then took a break and did it all over again a few times...
It was an awesome workout!

P90X Shoulders & Arms - Ahh, hadn't done it in such a long time..but there was a thread I read on here earlier about p90x it made me think about it...always a good workout.
The pain of discipline or the pain of regret? You choose.
Oh look - I made a Journal.
More biking and walking today. It has been hazy, hot, and humid (h^3) up here and I've been unmotivated to do much at all.
