I finally got my Jump, jump jack video up... better late then never right?
There are 2 versions and believe me you can add a few of these puppies into your daily workout or through out your day and blast some fat to the curb! I have been teaching these forever and I don't really know if I am the creator or not however I love taking the basic moves and pumping them up! (Ok that's an Governor Arnold quote)
Please feel free to rate it for me.
I had a good weekend, not as productive as I thought but I was good at avoiding some really bad food choices.
Did you know TGIF serves fried green beans? WHAT!?
Its true, and I did try 1 of these without the dipping sauce. www.tgifridays.com/menus/Menus.aspx
They are called Crispy Green Bean Fries, wonder how many calories are in this once healthy bean gone fat???
If anyone can find the nutritional information on this let me know.
I had to make my own meal at Fridays where we had lunch. Since we had never been there before, they gave us a FREE sample of 2 of Fridays own starter treats. We had the Jack Daniels Chicken Chunks and the Fried Green beans, and I tasted 2 of the beans and had 1/2 of a nugget. Both were good and of course full of fat. So I stuck with my good diet and I ordered "special" since there was nothing healthy that would fit my diet right now.
1 plain grilled chicken breast
Plain side salad w/ vinaigrette on the side for dipping.
Now please note if you ask a place to make you something do it nice and let them know you have certain diet needs and they will do what you want.
Of course they brought it out and I had to send it back because they put some stuff on it, they just could NOT believe someone could order a plain grilled chicken breast. No problem though I just ate my side salad while I waited for the food to be re-prepared.
Other then that, it was back to my diet the rest of day with the exception of a iced mocha from Mc Donald's. I think I did good... but then again, my trainer will maybe not see that so much.
I'm getting used to the oats, mixed with cottage cheese and blueberries now, and that's HUGE! I am starting to see my abs more and I'm sticking at 116.
All good news.
Had some great workouts over the weekend. As a matter of fact I even jumped in and did 30 minutes of the Power Yoga class on Saturday...GO T! Let me tell you how sore my glutes and legs were. I was trying to do the Tree pose and shaking so much I think I was messing with the girl in front of me, throwing her off. I felt bad about that so I finally just did chair pose. Sheesh!
Have you ever been that sore before?
That's a good thing really it is, because it shows that I really taxed out my muscles.
Sunday was my cardio day and got in a steady 35 minutes burning 325 calories and 5500 steps. I was happy with that, and I only changed inclines 2 times. Its hard for me to stay calm but I did, and I stayed at my HR range (Yup, I'm a bit hyper.)
After that cardio session I felt kinda on cloud 9 because I walked passed Jane (she's gay) and said "good morning Jane" and she was checking out my thighs! They must be looking good now, because this girl is R-I-P-P-E-D! She does that tough stair climber like is nothing, and looks like she could compete at a drop of a hat. I think her body fat is at about 9% year round.
Has anyone found a good Greek yogurt?
I tried some the plain and OMG it taste like sour cream! I love that it has 24g of protein and only 4 carbs but holly cow help me with the taste! Anyone have a better flavor or should I get strawberry or what? Instead of throwing it out I used it to make my Green Monsters for the week and even chocolate whey could not cover the bitter taste HELP!

Are you a Fighter?
Heck yeah when it comes to your health and wellness!
Today as I was working out and listened to this song FIGHTER on my player, I thought of these words and how they can relate to fitness/diet. Most of the time, it comes down to emotions. Remember only YOU can make yourself feel a certain way and you are in control of your emotions. It may not be easy at times, but if you can take hold you can change.
Please see how I added some thoughts next to each lyric, you may be at this point in your life and this may inspire you. I love this song for that reason, if you know it and your "stuck" just play this over and over and become a fighter because you are SO worth it!
Christina Aguilera (with added thoughts by Trainer T.)
After all you put me through (fat & blubber)
You'd think I'd despise you (cellulite)
But in the end I wanna thank you 'cause you made that much stronger (Kicking you to the curb!)
Well I thought I knew you, thinkin' that you were true (helping me emotionally)
Guess I, I couldn't trust and called your bluff (I'm already full but its so good)
time is up 'Cause I've had enough (Now I can't button my pants)
You were there by my side, always down for the ride (tasting so good and making me think I felt better)
But your joy ride just came down in flames
'Cause your greed sold me out of shame, mhm (your stealing my health)
After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that
I hold resentment for you (diabetes, high blood pressure & cholesterol)
But uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do, (strain my heart and body & take me away from my family and friends)
I wouldn't know Just how capable I am to pull through (I'm WORTH IT!)
So I wanna say thank you 'Cause it
Makes me that much stronger (to have a better quality of life)
Makes me work a little bit harder (rid myself of fat and wear my skinny clothes again)
Makes me that much wiser (understand how your shortening my life)
So thanks for making me a fighter!
Made me learn a little bit faster (after seeing my doctor)
Made my skin a little bit thicker (knowing I can do this for me and my family)
Makes me that much smarter (I know I am in control of my actions & emotions)
So thanks for making me a fighter!
Never, saw it coming (while I was eating all these yummy fattening foods)
All of, your backstabbing (adding preservatives that keep you hungry, adding pound by pound little by little)
Just so, you could cash in (keep me buying all the cheap $1 menu foods)
On a good thing before I realized your game (convenience on the go instead of packing a cooler)
I heard, you're going around Playing, the victim now (Consumers are wising up and Sparks is educating us)
But don't, even begin Feeling I'm the one to blame (Only I can make myself feel bad and I won't anymore!)
'Cause you dug your own grave, uh huh (with all that high fructose corn syrup & hyrdrogenated oils)
After all of the fights and the lies (I can over come my emotions with positive attitudes)
Yes you wanted to harm me but that won't work anymore (Your 100 calorie pack is not worth it, I will take a piece of fruit instead)
Uh, no more, oh no, it's over (I'm at a turning point)
'Cause if it wasn't for all of your torture (making me feel guilty)
I wouldn't know how to be this way now, and never back down (Committed to be healthy)
So I wanna say thank you
How could this man (food) I thought I knew (so comforting)
Turn out to be unjust so cruel (have so much preservatives & fat in it)
Could only see the good in you (how I felt satisfied while eating you)
Pretended to not to see the truth (oh its just a few extra calories)
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself (in diet soda and "low fat" foods)
Through living in denial (I will start my diet/workout on monday after the weekend)
But in the end you'll see YOU-WON'T-STOP-ME!
I am a fighter and I
I ain't goin' stop (its going to take time but with consistency I can, and will do it)
There is no turning back (I want my life, I want to live long and enjoy my family and kids)
I've had enough (No more drive through! I will pack my meals)
Makes me that much stronger = Sparks
Makes me work a little bit harder = Spark Teams
It makes me that much wiser = Sparks Articles
So thanks for making me a fighter = Sparks
Made me learn a little bit faster = Sparks Food and Exercise Tracker
Made my skin a little bit thicker = Sparkler Support
Makes me that much smarter = Coach Nichole Videos
So thanks for making me a fighter = YOURSELF!
Thought I would forget, (making excuses) but I remember (how bad that was for my health)
Cause I remember (I am what I eat)
Thanks Spark People for making me a fighter......because I am worth it!

My week by week progress for 90 days
I know I promised this information a while ago, and for some reason I put it on the back burner. Now I am going to post it and I also want to see where I end up with my program.
I also wanted to post this so you can see NOT to get discouraged by numbers. Your body is always changing, but if you stay consistant like I said yesterday YOU will see a change.
So this is how my P90X program stats went week by week. Now you can see that there were weeks obviously I did not do very well with my diet because THE NUMBERS NEVER LIE! I use the Omron body fat device.
My last/current stats are:
WT - 116
I started the program on 4/2/09 and ended on 8/7/09
I do my stats on Friday mornings after my workout. My goals was 19-20% body fat by July my birthday. Now you can also see from this its very important to have a goal to work towards. Thats why I think I got relaxed after my birthday, as you see the numbers tell it like it is. My new goal is by October 31st. I know my new program will get me there.
So here they are:
Here is my workout today:
Workout B Mood - RAWK
Wt - 116
Time of workout = 40 mins
5 min eliptical trainer warm up with shoulder & tri stretch
3x10 - 40lb BB Romanian Deadlift - First set 30lb

Over 40 is Fabulous!
Its true, Diane is 49 and I am 47! (some times I can't believe how fast time goes)
Today I got to thinking ...... how do I push myself to the next level?
I mean we look good right? Ok, we don't get carded but just sayin......
Sometimes when your already blessed healthy, and you work hard everyday to maintain a healthy lifestyle you have to dig deep to want more. To NOT be satisfied, to push for better, stronger, healthier, all to avoid ageing and the "old folks home".
It's much cheaper to maintain good health, then to try to get it back.
That's worth repeating so say it out loud....
It's much cheaper to maintain good health, then to try to get it back.
So for anyone that is fighting health issues, keep going its worth it, your worth it. Don't sit down and rust up, push yourself off that couch or chair and make a difference to YOU and your family. I tell people that tell me T. its hard, that you know what, it IS hard... but believe me it will be much harder if you have to have someone changing your bed pan and feeding you pills all day right?
Its the truth, the medical industry has a plan.
It is to get everyone in the world on 5 prescription drugs. Why? Because it makes them lots and lots of money. Oh and do you think they want you cured? Not so much, with you being cured they make NO money. Think about that would you? They are in the Sickness industry, and I am in the Wellness Industry.
Please be proactive about your health and wellness! Reach deep in your soul and fight for a healthy life even if its just baby steps. You can lower your blood pressure, your cholesterol levels, stress levels and just feel better about yourself if you do. Be good to you.
I know we all want instant results, but it just does not work that way. If you don't go through the journey you miss the life.
Getting back to myself yeah I got on a tangent...... for me to reach down, I have to say "I can eat this gross oatmeal with low fat cottage cheese and blueberries...I CAN!" Its going to make a difference this new diet, and while I finally got used to plain oats with apples this is another hurdle yet I must climb to reach a Rockstar Body!
Anyone that is starting at any fitness level, its not going to be easy but you can make changes and I will give you the secret. CONSISTANCY.
There its out, so if you do that it can, and will happen. With anything you do in life, you may take a step back but with consistancy you WILL continue on and then make 2 steps forward.
I'm on a mission to dig down deep and take my body to the next level, it won't be easy but its what I want to do. I am what I think I am, and so are YOU.
Here is my workout today:
Mood - Go T!
Wt - 116.5
Time of workout = 35 mins
Cals burned = 300
This was my steady cardio session
25 mins level 10 incline 4

Day one, and my shoulder feels fabulous! I am still keeping Mondays as my off day. I got to the gym by 6.30am woo woo!
I am back playing with the big boys!
Some times I get emails from women that are afraid to workout in the weight section with the boys. Girl power.....JUST DO IT! They are more than willing to help you out, really they will. I actually like the space even though I don't use all the bigger machines, like the leg presses or hack squats but still its a nice area. I have never had someone not help me so ladies step up if you want to workout with the big weights.
I am glad to start my new program, I have 2 sessions. This is session A. What I like about this one is its more barbell then dumbbell. Since its been a while since I have used a barbell its FUN! Really I like just mixing things up so its a nice change. I will be mixing this with session B.
I started this workout with a 20lb barbell and worked up to a 30lb barbell. I wanted to make sure I was ready to increase just enough that the last few were a nice burn. I honestly was not sure how strong I would be after doing P90X or how my shoulder would feel but it was great.
One move that I always feel is the deadlift, and this one was a stiff leg deadlift. Hello glutes! I added 10lb with each set, I'm sure I could have started right off with the 40lb but I am trying to get the right amount to get the right burn.
Do you like deadlifts?
If you lift them heavy you must be sure not to strain when putting the weights back. All the power guys at the gym like to place the big barbell weights at the top of the rack and the smaller at the bottom. It's true, I have had to ask someone (guy) to remove and replace my weight bar for me. I mean really, to reach up 4' on a rack is nuts!
I got a few of the wrong things on diet this week, so its back to the store for black beans, oranges and rye bread.
Here is my workout today and I RAWKED it!
Wt - 116
Mood - Oh yeah!
5 min elliptical warm up w/shoulder, triceps & neck stretch
Time of workout = 40 min
3x10 20lb BB Squat - 30lb last set
3x10 10lb DB Bench press - 15lb last set
3x10 20lb Overhand BB row - 30lb last 2 sets
3x10 20lb BB shoulder press - 30lb last set
3x10 20lb, 30lb, 40lb BB Stiff Leg Deadlift
3x10 Hanging leg raises - last set 15
5 min cool down stretch:
Bent over hanging
Downward dog w/calve raises

Club Fitness is where I do my workouts.
It has all the normal stuff, weight machines, free weights, cardio section and free classes. I pay a good price, $21 a month and you get to do all the classes you like. The one thing I do not like about it is, that the broken equipment stays out of order too long. Sometimes they have a cardio piece down for like a month, I have called and they did get someone to get back with me which they get extra points for. But still, this club gets lots of volume and its frustrating when its full.
I tried to find out who owns these clubs and have not been able to find out. Or even the person that concepted this, no luck. It does seem they are franchising these out, they even carry Monster Energy drinks in them now. I wonder do they know how bad that stuff is? Why would a health club want to promote that stuff? MONEY I am sure that's the reason, and I am sure Monster energy drinks are very happy to be in there clubs.
They have something called DFS which I still have no idea what that stands for, but they sub out the trainers into the club. Nice, you get all the clients without advertising GO trainers. I'm sure you give up some cash to do so, but what the heck I would think about it. Who carries the insurance, the club?
I wanted to be more productive this weekend, but that girls night out and some biz took all that away. I was going to finish re-building the flower bed the plumbers decided to destroy and then also film my new youtube videos. I was going to get that done on Saturday NOT...but hopefully I will get that done next weekend and posted. Hey Rome wasn't built in a day right?
The weather has been awesome, and my motivation has been a level 10. I got my new program from my trainer Karen and ready to roll. Lets see if I can take this body to the next level.
Here are my weekend workouts:

Girls Night Out This Saturday, I'm so excited!
This is the musical we will be seeing. I wonder which girl T. is?
Carol who was born to party, blunt Anita who says it like it is, Liza and her 'issues', boring Kate the great designated driver and Sharon, the not-so-angelic angel who just couldn't resist tagging along!
Im pretty sure I am Anita, or I could be a bit of Carol I do like my fun!
Then its dinner at Westport. We have so many good places to eat I am not sure which one we will do.
Ozzys (Ozzy Smith) http://www.ozziesrestaurantandsportsbar.com/, or Pujols (Albert Pujols) http://www.pujols5grill.com/they both are Cardinals that have yummy places to eat.
Now its just what to wear? Which cute shoes?
Last night I did a 2 mile run and it was puuuurfect weather, wow. I really pumped up my music player and enjoyed myself, I did an 11 minute mile. I did not really want to push it, but thought I would start training for the 401K that is in September. Its to benefit the firemen and policemen, and its $20 to enter with all getting a t-shirt. Not bad.
I finished the "I Dare You book" and will be talking about that on my next blog. I really enjoyed this book, and it was very inspirational as well. Most of it that hits home is on your success strategy. It's all about purpose and what drives you to do the things you love. I think this is something that so many times causes failure in a fitness or nutrition plan. Myself included, its not so much how bad you want it so to speak its more like how does this effect your purpose?
As an example, you may say you want to be a fitness competitor. Yet is your purpose going to be, eating and doing the things that will give you purpose. So what you make it through the physical training, or you even make it through all the crazy eating and it is very demanding on the body especially at the end. Is it in your purpose to go through the mood swings, deprivation, not to mention giving up your life during the last few weeks just complete this? If your purpose is to become a figure coach, posing coach, or a professional figure competitor then it is your purpose. If it is to prove something to yourself it may not be your purpose, its just a challenge and will you get the joy out of it that will make your life better? I did compete and only did it to understand how the body works, educate myself on what my clients would have to do, and see how mentally strong they would have to be. Very, it is extremely grueling and taxing on the body.
There are other things in the book like your success will come to you when your doing your purpose because it will not seem like work. That's how I feel about fitness, business, helping others and design. Now sorting all this out for my purpose is what I am working on right now. Do you have a list of what you enjoy doing? You know, where time just seems to fly by? If so she says to use that list to find your purpose, and take yourself to the next level. I'm ready to do that, I am ready to take the dare and live my life with purpose and passion and I hope you are too.

I tried this and love it!
I got this on sale 5 for $5.00 since its new, I don't know what the price point will be but its a good lunch for a quick no hassle meal. You could even put this on crackers or celery its that moist.
Starkist Tuna Salad Sandwich Ready (Albacore) http://www.starkist.com/template.asp?section=products/tuna-salad.asp
Heres the facts:
Sodium 460mg (of course thats high)
Contains - Fish, soy and eggs
This is a good size portion, it overflowed on my Arnold bread buns. I like that it did not taste salty and had lots of flavor to it. Im sure if you watch out for perservatives this may not be for you. Just as everything you do from scratch you have more control over.
However good protein and this one has less calories 90 then the other that I bought 100 and will try tomorrow. Its the White tuna, this was the Albacore. I don't like that I could not find the nutritonal link to do a side by side comparison, shame on Starkist!
I would buy this again, and I really enjoyed it.

I like this picture of her....my morning workout buddy today. I know I did not go to the gym, BAD T!
Today I did 30 Day Shred Level 3 http://www.jillianmichaels.com/index.aspx
Its not a beachbody workout, but its still a good one. This does not EVEN compare to P90X it was much easier to me now. I wonder how her latest dvd is doing, I am sure its tougher. I think I may be addicted to home dvd workouts. I think because when its cold or raining or I feel like I want 10 extra minutes of sleep I can skip the gym and still get a GREAT workout.
Do you have a favorite dvd trainer?
There are getting to be so many good ones and when I grew up there were just a handful. Kathy Smith, Denise Austin, Jack La Lane, and the lady that was on channel 9 and 6am she was good. Now there are some greats, like JM, Tony Horton, Chalene, Cathe and so many more, not even counting Youtube. Heck I'm even on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/trainertfitness
I can't wait to go Belly dancing tonight. I'm going with my girlfriend Lisa and her friend from out of town. Its only $8 a class and its open at a wellness center its really fun and a very nice place. First after work though I am going to the chiropractor and I will be good as new, and as a matter of fact I am on cloud 9 today.
My So You Think You Can Dance Fit dvds came in! I am so stoked I will want to preview them this weekend. I was so happy to see them in the mail at work this morning! A fun workout, gotta love that. Does anyone have these yet?
Mistaken Identity....... I had some guy waving at me yesterday on the way home for work like he knew me. I was kinda creeped out, he was in a lawn care truck and I was thinking, do I know someone in lawn care? Duno off the top of my head, but he was smiling and pacing me like an old friend. Maybe he was someone I went to school with? Maybe just mistaken identity?
Ever have that happen?
You might be thinking T. he was probably hitting on you.....well I don't think so this did not seem like "try to pick T. up driving down the highway in her cute MINI". I mean once for years with my RX7 I had guys always waving like they knew me, and 3 years later I finally saw the "younger" girl that looked like me, in my same car.....dahhh what a blow to my ego that was! For years I told my boyfriend that awww it happens all the time, but really I was thinking W-H-A-T these guys are young. Not a bad thing right....ok, they needed to be legal at least.
Here is my workout today, and I hope to have my new program by Monday. Its ok, I had fun working out with JM today. What I did like was the jump moves, I love plyo it always gets me pumped plus I am good at it.

I am finally debt free! Its true, it was my goal at age 47 so that I may start buying more real estate, start my ranch or another business. This has not been easy, and there have been many struggles along the way. But I did it and I am very proud of T.
So I thought, I will start this clock ticking and see if I can't get motivated on making good things happen every day forward. Time waits for no one, so we should take advantage and do what we can each day. I can't believe how old I am, that along freaks me out.
Little things all add up, they really do.
When I was making all those payments that's all I would see, but little by little it happened and the slow and steady won the race. Just like fitness....each day little by little your body is making changes. You just have to stay the course, stay focused and it can happen.

Today was my last P90X workout on the Lean program and I am so glad to be done. Thank you to all that supported me through this, I had some setbacks but still came through the finish line.
I am ready to get back to the gym. I of course have that love/hate relationship with Tony Horton anyway. Of course after you learn the moves you can put it on music with cues....thank goodness.
I plan to post my pics and stats and my input this weekend. I only have a wedding on Saturday so I should have time. You can be the judge if I look any different or not. I also am looking forward to getting back to the gym,I have spent $63 on my MIA membership.
I plan on running more in the fall and there is a 5k next month I could train for. I know I can't beat my 3rd place win on a first race, but I do enjoy the competition. Some days I can just run forever, it just clears my mind and once you kinda push past the pain level you get kinda on an adrenaline high. Really. I think that's why some runners are addicted and try to keep beating records, I am glad I never got addicted. Now chocolate or choc choc that's another story!
Lets see how my knees hold up, its been months since I ran or did the elliptical or stressful cardio.
Do you have problem knees?
I have sleeves I use, but this is even supposed to help heal and at $14 a roll its not a bad price, seems kinda cool. I got mine at Sports Athority
Unfortunately my girlfriend called and said she had to cancel belly dancing so I went for a walk instead, it was nice out. I did get to see SYTYCD and I loved it! I can't wait to find out which one wins, both are talented and it would be hard to decide at this point. They both have adapted to different styles too so that really makes it tough. I of course love girl power so, that would rock!
Time to set some new goals.
How about you?
We are coming into a new season, and can make it whatever we want. Just stay focused and strong and it will happen.
Here is my workout & stats:
Workout - P90X Stretch
Static Stretches: Neck Back up the car Head rolls Chest, back and shoulder stretch combo Topas Wrist, forearm Back wrist Dreya forearm stretch Arm circles Shoulder tris
Ballistic stretchs Shake outs Hug yourself high-low

Is anyone a BeachBody Coach or use the BeachBody website? teambeachbody.com/trainert
I am a member, however I am not a coach.
If you are a coach and have any thoughts about it, please let me know. Or are you a member and want to be a coach?
I went to the chiropractor last night and I feel better today, still stiff. You should have heard the noise my goodness I was out of whack! He worked on my shoulder and I think it feels better too so that's a blessing. Gonna have him do that again, its my shoulder at the lateral.
The Supraspinatus, you can find that on this link. http://www.gwc.maricopa.edu/class/bio201/muscle/arm/shldra.htmHere is what it says about it.
Rupture of the supraspinatus tendon The supraspinatus runs along the top of the shoulder blade and inserts at the top of the arm (humerus bone). This muscle is used to lift the arm up sideways and is also important in throwing sports as it is the muscle that holds the arm in the shoulder joint when you release what you are throwing. This is why I have trouble with lateral lifts and deep push ups...owie!
I do like this site for information, I even book marked it since its so good.
I'm excited to say that we are going Belly Dancing tonight again and I can't wait. I get to meet my girlfriends friend that is in visiting, she is going with us. I want to wear the fancy wrap too. It was a late night last night and I had to go out of town so I missed SYTYCD I was so disappointed. I got home at 9pm, and I left the house at 7.30am so I was very glad to be home. But by the time I got my lunch made, and showered it was almost 10pm and a 1/2 hour of reading then I could NOT sleep.
I could not get comfy which is normal after an adjustment, I think it was about midnight when I feel asleep and got up at 7am today.
Just 1 more recovery workout and I am an official P90X Grad, and and now its back to the gym. Off to get the Rockstar Body........

My First GREEN MONSTER!
I am so exceited to share this with you all, I came across this on Caitli'ns blog, http://www.healthytippingpoint.com/and its from Angela's blog at http://www.ohsheglows.com/ they are both professional bloggers.
It's called The Green monster movement. Basically its a spinach or kale smoothie to give you natural energy and glow all day long. I had this at 11am today and will see how I feel the rest of the afternoon.
Here are my ingredients:
Along wtih some lovely dahlia flowers I picked yesterday.
My recipe which I kinda adjusted from Caitlins was:
2 cups spinach
1 cup silk natural soy
1 tbs of vanilla
It as delish! I drank 1/2 since it made so much I then decided to add 1 scoop of 100% gold standard whey, and call this lunch. Y-U-M!
Of course I would have added pb however I had that on french toast this morning, and too much is just well too much pb!
I have not added up the calories or protein on this yet, but will after I see how I like this. You can find so many varities on the link, or even post your own recipe.
Happy drinking, I mean who can go wrong with a drink thats my favorite color and the color of money....please!
