Spring Journal - Sarah F.

The past three weeks have been pretty crazy for me. I have traveled twice (3 1/2 days at a time each trip) in the last 3 weeks. I was worried about how my body would react to traveling, however... I did get my workouts in, and researched every place I ate (the airport being the exception).

This was the first week that I felt "normal" again. I came home to see the scale 3 lbs heavier. After talking to my brother and father who are both airline pilots they filled me in about what the elevation does to your body and water weight. Sure enough... 3 days later that weight was gone. I weighed in this morning at my regular 123 lbs.

I am now back into my normal workout routine of P90X and I have to say that it feels great kicking my own butt!

Speaking of P90X there are some of you who have asked me about this program. It just happens that I complete my second time through it the same week we complete this challenge. I will be sharing my sights on P90X with you all.

As for now, I was to share my new indulgence!!! First of all, I was allergic to milk as a child, as I got older I was able to tolerate it more, but I just never acquired the taste for it. I put skim milk in my cereal, and of course I love it with chocolate cake and cookies - but I am NOT one to just pour a glass of milk and drink it. I truely dislike the taste of it. Being that I turned 30 a couple weeks ago, I noticed that my joints are really beginning to ache. My knees and hips hurt so bad sometimes that it keeps me up at night. I started thinking that I haven't been getting enough calcium... so, someone told me about soymilk. Everything I read said that soymilk stated that it only has 25% of the calcium of regular milk. So at the store I came across Silk Soymilk that has just as much calcuim as dairy milk. I thought "WHY NOT!" Bought it, brought it home... fell in LOVE with it. It is now something that I crave, and I never in my wildest dreams would have thought I would crave a glass of soymilk! My husband just laughs at me because the other night instead of having a cup of coffee, I sat on the couch sipping a glass of soymilk instead - that's HUGE for me being the coffee lover that I am! It is a bit on the expensive side, but I figured since it's only me drinking it in my house and that I'm not drinking the regular milk... why not!

Keep on ladies... we are almost there! Stick with it, we are all here for you!
