P90X Saturday

I did back and legs Saturday.

My diet wasn't that great - after my morning workout, I had my protein shake, then had Taco Bell for lunch, and a frozen pizza for dinner (plus I had a ice cream smoothie from Rita's, and 2 grape sodas at work). I was really thirsty after the rally.

I am glad it's Sunday, so I can rest!

Neo-Nazi Rally - Downtown Knoxville

On Saturday, I covered my first neo-Nazi Rally - a group with the National Socialist Movement came to Knoxville to protest illegal immigration. An even bigger group came to protest the rally. The Knoxville Police Department, along with several other agencies, did a great job keeping the peace. Three people did get arrested - 2 on weapons charges and one for disorderly conduct. Here are some photos from event.

P90X Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

I have fallen behind with my blogging.

I have done P90X faithfully . . . my diet on the other hand has suffered.

I bought a small supreme pizza for dinner Monday night. Had it for dinner Tuesday night too. I drank my protein shakes after my workouts.

I am getting back to healthy food today, but lunch suffered. I had a grape soda, crackers with peanut butter, and a beef jerky stick. I plan to have veggies and chicken for dinner.

What did you eat today? I want to hear what is in your diets.

Tennessee Politics

Today I was busy covering politics . . . First stope was in Lenoir City, TN where I meet a cool politcal supporter. I then traveled 3 hours to Nashville and did live shots at the Vanderbuilt Marriott with Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey. He was running in the Republican Primary (He didn't get enough votes to go on).

Josh's P90X Challenge

For years, I have been debating on buying P90X (a DVD workout program, heavily advertised on TV). You are supposed to get ripped in 90 days. I finally fell to the pressure and bought it. I started it today . . . 89 days to go. I have changed my diet (no soda, more veggies, protein shakes, etc.) I have also decided to keep track of what I eat here on my blog. If you see me slacking off . . . let me know. Let see if this works!


Workout: Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X

Today's Food: Smart Start Cereal, Honey, and Milk
Power Bar at work
2 McChicken Sandwhiches, and small Strawberry and Banana Smoothie
Chicken Breast, cucumber, cottage cheese, Sun Chips, and Orange Juice to drink
Protein Shake, and almonds

Dad and Mom come to visit

It was so great to have my parents come to Knoxville. I love them so much. We were able to go visit some ancestors that are buried in Knoxville, and take a photo by Ault Street. It was a great visit . . . come back SOON!
