P90X Day 31

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

I needed a rest day think the fall weather has me wore out. So I used today as my rest/recovery day. Did 40 minutes of walking and 30 minutes on my stationary bike figured doing that was better than giving a half hearted effort on my workout may try to double up on back biceps and yoga tomorrow. I'll do back and biceps when I get home from work, sleep and then do yoga in the afternoon. If not I'll just shift the week to my actual rest day. Hope this doesn't me I'm weak but I figure I am just being smart and listening to my body.

P90X Day 30

Monday, October 26, 2009

Had plyometrics today felt really sluggish I gave it the best effort I could but it seemed like I couldn't get out of first gear throughout the workout. I think it may be my nutrition I think I could have eaten a lot better this weekend in general. I think I actually maybe added in too many carbs over the weekend. May also be all the extra hours I've put in at work. Looking forward to tomorrows back and bicep routine. Also depending how I feel in the morning I may do the cardioX dvd as well.

P90X Days 27 and 28 greasy food bad!

Saturday, October 24, 2009

I went out for a friends birthday last night and since I have been doing really well and with the break up I thought maybe it would be good to let my hair down for one night. Yeah NO. I had a cheesesteak sandwich and fries it was so good but man my stomach is rejecting it I think my healthy eating habit is going to be a lot more permanent because I felt gross after that and the beer. No more indulgence like that thank you. As we speak I am making some healthy turkey chili, I just went for a jog, yes you got that right a JOG. It felt really good I really want to be in the shape that I used to be I forgot how much I like running. I am getting ready to do yoga in a little bit. Yesterday I also got 45 minutes in walking at the mall. I really want my healthy life back this time. I am not going to fail this time in between blogging about my new lifestyle and coping with a break up I think that I am going to be really successful. The last time I was in really awesome shape was following a break up I know that I shouldn't only have success after heartache but I am learning to make this permanent change not just a stress induced workout fest, but at least it is better than dealing with it by eating bad food. Maybe those skinny jeans are closer than I think. Size 18 now goal size 10. I can do this. While the jeans will be a nice bonus I really just want to get healthy especially with the heart disease that runs in my family.

    Great job focusing on the big picture and keeping your motivation high!

I can relate to feeling compelled to life a healthy lifestyle partially due to the heart disease that runs in my family. Regular exercise and a 'clean' diet make an enormous difference in quality of life and general health.

And way to go on completing the balance 1/2 of the Yoga X routine - your persistence is inspiring! :D

    I understand how once you change healthy there is no going back! My body tends to regret when I eat sugary items and greasy items after eating healthy so long. That's why we call it a personal lifestyle change! Makes sense when you think about it, long ago we got used to those fatty items - when in all reality it just makes our body sick!

Keep it up. You're doing this for yourself. No matter in a relationship or not, you're worth feeling GREAT about yourself.

    Note on yoga finally did the 2nd half of the disc on the suggestion of a fellow sparker. Went very well I want to get all the way through without struggling but did pretty well today. And the chili turned out great!

Day 26 P90X

Thursday, October 22, 2009

The workout scheduled for today was core synergistics. I am moving it to Saturday which is normally my rest day but do to a hectic schedule today I made today rest day. Don't think I took the day completely off, I still met up with my walking partner and we got in a good 45 minutes. It was nice because it gave me a release to vent about my ex-boyfriend (see previous blog). Following the walk I had a dentist appointment (mind you I got off work at 6 am), and following was my physical I was happy to see that I had lost another 5lbs finally the scale has moved I'm down a total of 15 lbs with P90X the good thing this time is the inches are going along with the weight. I'm not terribly torn up right now about the break up because I know in the end it is the best thing for both of us. But I know this weekend when football is on I will find myself missing him more guess I will have to try to find something else to do for awhile until that goes away. Got a ton of leaves to rake if the weather cooperates I think I'll do that plus I'll burn a ton of calories. I'm indulging in a little cheat right now think I made an okay choice though sweet and crunchy some teddy grahams. There are a lot worse things especially going through a break up, I didn't turn to pizza and chips maybe I am finally past that a little bit. I think all this getting healthy stuff is really helping me deal with it. So tomorrow morning when I am sweating through my walk with Yvonne and sweating through Yoga with Tony I won't be thinking about the ex I'll be thinking about the new fit me that is going to find someone who will tell me they love me.

  Congratulations on your weight loss. Sorry about your break-up. You have the right attitude in keeping off the food. My daughter and son and their spouses are doing the P90X. They are doing so well and love it. I am not sure what happens once they have finished the three month program. But I guess I will soon find out. Keep well.

    Break-ups suck, but if you don't gain 5 pounds because of it you will be a success! I am such an emotional eater, that's great you can get ahold of it. I've been kind of curious about P90X, so I may have to get on board one of these days!

Congrats on the weight/inches lost and I hope you will find a new hot guy that will love the new, hot you!
