Hey Kelie,

I'm doing the classic program although I'm not doing the diet - just trying eat healthy/balanced meals, and I have essentially no junk food (except rice chips if they count wink.gif). I am on week 9 and I can definitely see a difference - especially in the arms/shoulders and my abs - the legs are harder to tell but I think they are a little more toned. I don't have a scale so I'm not sure if I've changed much in my weight - most of my clothes feel a little looser, so I think I probably lost a bit (may 2-3 lbs).

If you're following the diet and doing all the workouts (and getting enough rest etc) - I'm SURE you will see changes in your body, hard to say how much of a weight change - it really depends on your body type when you start (I think). Keep up the good work and I think it will definitely be worth it when we're all looking great on the beach cheesy.gif.

Ironically enough, I could always finish the mason twists, which my FI finds amazing! I have a problem with the roll-up v-ups... I can only do about 3 and then I need a break! lol

 

I am going to truly start the diet tomorrow (I think) and see how it goes... I'm trying to bust through a plateau, so maybe this will help? I have been eating well and everything, but maybe the diet will give me a little extra push :)

Hi ladies! I just got done doing plyo since I got home from work late. What a great way to let out some stress.

 

I find that sometimes I experience these pretty painful toe cramps when I workout...mostly during yoga. I think part of it stems from walking around in heels all day at work. Does anyone else get these toe cramps at all?! It sounds silly but they hurt...I have to pause my workout to massage or walk them off until they go away. Grr

Hey Gina, I get them too - especially with calf raises and sneaky lunges, not exactly sure why but I guess there's not much we can do about them. Apparently potassium is supposed to reduce muscle cramps (like bananas)...but I eat one a day usually and still get them...They aren't very fun but I just try to push through it as long as I can possibly stand it - it usually goes away when I shake it out.

I get foot cramps and sometimes think it is from having my shoes too tight. They go away after I walk it off. A couple of years ago I was getting really bad toe cramps and went to the doctor and he suggested a cortizone shot. I thought why not... but holy @#$ did that hurt. Never again, I'd rather deal with the cramps. He also recommended that I wear falts, so I try to stick to cute flats instead of heels nowadays. I hate getting old, but my feet don't cramp or hurt nearly as bad now that I have limited my heel wearing.

I try and I feel like a little kid when they try to get up from a lying down position- you know when the feet go up in the air? lol I cant do them, so i just do up side up again crunches

Hey ladies,

 

I just started P90X this week and it's amazing!! I'm only on Day 3 and I feel sore but tight all over and I have more energy. It's a great feeling! I'm excited to see what the results will be after 3 months. I'm not following the diet and using all the recipes right now. I'm just trying to watch what I eat. I have a puppy that I have to walk/run every night too so I figure I'm doing pretty good for burning calories on a daily basis.

 

I'm doing it to get in shape for wedding dress shopping and the summer. My FI is doing it with me so it's great to have that support. I can't do a chin-up if my life depended on it. I seriously just hung there and tilted my head back. It made me feel like I moved up a bit. LMAO

 

Questions...

 

1) Are you doing the lean or classic program? We're doing the classic program.

2) Are you tracking your exercises (how many reps you can do) and your inches? I was thinking I might measure inches since I will be building muscle and I might not see my weight fall very quickly. I usually go by my clothes anyway. It keeps me motivated if my clothes fit better!

 

Thanks!

 

Tara

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
