Turkey to P90


Happy Belated Thanksgiving everyone!  I am sure everyone is "thanksgiving recapped out" by this point, so I will just share a few, low quality photos you have come to expect here at athlEAT. ;) 


I have major camera envy of all of you out there that have a fancy SLR.  Especially since these photos were taken with my iPhone.  Forgetting my camera seems to be happening more frequently, so I will have to nip this in the bud immediately.  

Fresh Green Beans w/ Lemon, Garlic, and Toasted Pine Nuts.

Mom's Famous Angel Biscuits, fresh out of the oven.

Uncle Gene's Crab Stuffing.  Like a crab cake, but with more bread than crab.  Only in Maryland.  It was great.

The most addicting Mac & Cheese ever.  Havarti, Brown Sugar & Red Onions are just a few of the awesome ingredients.

Ready to eat.

My plate.  I pretty much ate everything.  Yes, that is sauerkraut on my turkey.  Deelish.  

Ok, so have I mentioned that I love pie?  LOVE pie.  I just had to have a sliver of each.  Pecan, Pumpkin & Sweet Potato.


After all of this post-marathon eating, I decided to start a new training challenge.  P90x.  I have tried to start this before and was not committed.  This time is different.

Kevin and I set up our own P90 workout area in the basement.  It isnt fancy, but we sealed off the exposed brick and then put down padded/gym flooring.  I love it down there now.


We are currently on Day 4 and I am still sore from Day 1.  I love feeling sore because it tells me this stuff is working.  Yoga tonight was extremely hard.  I have never felt more awkward in my life and only lasted 30 mins.  Here's to keeping this up for 86 more days!

Hey girly! Those Angel biscuits look incredible. Love that you setup your workout area- I've heard great things about P90. Whats up with these annoying anonymous SPAM comments? I have been getting some too

I have some serious gym envy right now! Our basement has such a low ceiling that we can only do a portion of the workouts down there (so basically all of them except plyometrics... which is done in our bedroom).

I skipped yoga this morning because I didn't have 90 minutes to spare and did X Stretch instead. Although I prob should do yoga...

Good luck with the P90! I look forward to seeing how it works out for you guys.

I love being sore! You feel so accomplished! I've tried p90x before, my brothers really into it. Its really good! Especially if you mute the guy out : )

Mmm...everything looks so delicious! I'm never too tired of hearing about thanksgiving spreads!

That gym space looks inviting. Let us know how the workouts are.

I have P90x and haven't committed to it for the full 90 days since when I got it, it was summer and super humid. Once my knee gets better I hope to start it and do it for real. Isn't Tony Horton funny?
