"The greatest wealth is health."--Virgil

Saturday, July 25, 2009


Two of the most common resolutions made every year are to be fit and/or lose weight, and to spend more time with family. In an effort to keep both resolutions, try turning your family time into health and fitness time. Former U.S. Surgeon General and founder of Shape Up America!, Dr. C. Everett Koop stated in the introduction to 99 Tips for Family Fitness Fun, "...I encourage you to choose activities you can do together and support and reward each other's efforts to be more active at home, at school, at work, and in your communities...The pleasure of your company is the best reward your child can receive and the best gift you can give."

January is Family Fit Lifestyle Month, and it is a month brimming with resources to help you meet your fitness goals. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

Family Fitness Kit:Secrets to making you and your family healthier, starting today, without fancy gadgets or exercise equipment. Visit www.healthymainepartnerships.org/tip

    Yeah I'm not confident the plan hits 50/30/20 exactly either. I'm in my first week and hitting 36-38% protein but that's high for me... It's just so hard to take with me as I travel for work daily.

Good job on your nutrition.

    Your nutrition results look almost exactly like mine! I'm aiming for 50,30,20, but always end up around 45,28,27. I'm still not sure how to get my fat intake lower. It seems to me that the P90X meal plan isn't hitting the 50,30,20 mark either, so I don't think its all too bad.

P90X Classic Day 7 Assessment

Monday, July 20, 2009

It's MONDAY MONDAY MONDAY emoticon The last workout for Week 1 of P90X Classic. I was as ready as I could be for work. A part of my past that has been lingering for 4 yrs has finally been faced today. It's time to turn the page to a new chapter emoticon

emoticon Day 7/Week 1 Stretch X workout. Not a whole lot to say about it. Just a bunch of stretching. What else can I say? I couldn't have planned the workout schedule any better. Considering this workout is also done after my work day and also lands on my busiest of my work days, nothing better than just SSTTTTRRRRREEETCHING the muscles for an hr. Personally, I think I would rather do the Yoga X for 90 minutes, but this will do for now. I did consider running afterwards. I decided that would defeat the purpose of relaxing the muscles. Especially since I will be getting up early on Tuesday mornings to CRANK out those push-ups.

emoticon Meal plan, hmmmm, NOT ONE! I ate 2 wheat turkey muffins for breakfast. Baby Spinach chef salad for lunch. More of that YUMMY DELICIOUS vegetable soup. Yep, still eating that. I think I have at least 2 more meals of that. I could have fed the whole team with that. My journey of my P90X chef training is not over. I still have lots of Tony's recommendations to experience. I won't bore you with the basic stuff. I will keep ya updated.

This is the last Assessment Blog emoticon emoticon for taking the time too read these and allowing me to share them with you. I hope they will benefit anyone that is starting their P90X journey.

"BRING IT"

P90X Classic Day 6 Assessment

Monday, July 20, 2009

Another day to workout after work, YIPPY emoticon OK Super_Gurl, I strapped on my HR & watch, got my water bottle & towel, and PUSHED PLAY!

emoticon Day 6/Week 1 was KENPO X. For some reason I had this thought in my head that it was going to be a little more strenuous. I was glad that I was mentally prepared for that and it actually wasn't. This workout really reminded me of Tae Bo workouts. The punches, kicks, and the general routine. I enjoyed it so much, that my second wind kicked in. I remember seeing someone post yesterday that they ran 5k after doing KENPO X (don't recall who it was). So that inspired me to do that since my second wind kicked in emoticon You know, you never know how long that second wind is going to last. I hate to quite what I have already started. 20min into the run the second wind was almost gone. I kept my focus and finished it off emoticon That was it for me. I will probably continue to add that to my KENPO X routine. See, that goes to prove, you never know who YOU inspire by posting in the threads emoticon emoticon for whoever did that on OUR TEAM!

emoticon Meal plan, hmmmmm, there wasn't one today either. My refrigerator finally has room in it now. I looked at all of my fresh fruits and veggies to see what needed to be eaten first. I made meals accordingly. I have enjoyed tracking my food this week. It helps me review everything and how to tweak it for next week. I don't quite understand a lot of it. That comes in time like everything else.

Hope everyone has a FABULOUS Monday!
