P90X Day 50-51 90/10 rule it works

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Enjoying the rest week and getting a lot of stuff done around the house. Got the garage clean and organized. My bedroom is a bedroom no building materials anymore yay. Slacked off yesterday on everything but I needed it. I needed a day off from the strict diet, a day to get some sleep and not do a workout. The best part of yesterday was the hour long full body massage I treated myself to. That made my night I finally got to relax and had the best nights sleep I have had in a really long time. Having that day to totally slack has motivated me though I don't feel like I used to that it would have caused a downward spiral back to old habits. I find it to be a good break and it gives me the motivation and energy to continue, it allows me a day to be a human being that likes greasy food and laying on the couch, but it also gives me a reminder that there is a lot more to life and that a healthy lifestyle is more beneficial. Its that 90-10 rule i like it 90% of the time I am on my game and 10% of the time I can give my self a little break

    Great blog! I recently treated myself to a massage as well; it was soooooo wonderful. Good for you! I love the 90/10 rule, whether in regards to taking (well deserved) rest days or in regards to food choices.

Keep it up, you're doing awesome! :D

P90X Day 50 Recovery week Week 8 begins

Monday, November 16, 2009

So it is the glorious recovery week in the program. Today instead of the workout I did a 3.5 mile walk and 30 minutes of biking. Haven't been sleeping that well and want to put in a good effort with Yoga so I am going to double yoga and core tomorrow after I get some much needed rest My long work weekends take it out of me. Still continue to be very happy with the program and plan to make it a permanent fixture in my new lifestyle. I know I can't train like this constantly but I will definetly do the strength workouts and yoga. Getting to doing this blog late 11pm my time so it will actually log it as the 16th

    It's funny BeeJay I never thought about how that sounds "oh I didn't do a workout I just walked 3.5 miles and biked 30 minutes." Guess my attitude about physical fitness has change a little bit because that would have exhausted me not to long ago.

P90X Day 49 Still at it

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Today was rest day which I actually got to take as a rest day thanks to my monumental 3 workouts in one day effort of yesterday. One of those weeks. Got a lot done on the house today the siding is done the new windows are in and the porch lights are up (which is actually my favorite part--it gets dark at night). The Hawkeyes lost which makes me sad really wanted to go to the Rose Bowl this year although I am really excited about our back up QB Vandeburg tremendous effort in his first start can't ask for much more showed a lot of poise. At work now gonna try to get as much stretching in tonight as possible. Packed a heathy dinner and ate pretty well today, didn't eat right after work which is one of my worst habits but I am always ravenous after work, which is fine if I workout right after but most days I just go straight to sleep. So I avoided that ate a light breakfast when I woke up, worked on the house. For lunch wasn't great Cheeseburger and small fry but at least that was it I know days that I would have eaten 2 cheeseburgers and a large fry and downed a gallon of cola so at least when I have to eat junk I am doing a lot better at making decisions. Got a gallon of water to drink tonight and for dinner I got yet another version of my turkey meatloaf the last one was better but this one is still good. Been enjoying the meatloafs because they are quick easy and filling. Got some stuff for a wrap sliced turkey, laughing cow cheese wedge on a tortilla. A couple yogurts, it was a lunch that I packed in a hurry but I'll make do. If I need a small snack later I will get some baked chips or popcorn but I think this should get me through the night planning on working out first thing in the morning so it will be okay to go home and have a little something. all for now can't believe I am down to 40 days to go on round 1 of P90x.

    You're doing great! Keep it up... I've decided to continue with the P90X. It has actually become "part of my weekly routine" and its becoming no big deal anymore. I love pushing play, I love the alternatives I do instead of the cardio x and kempo... it keeps me from getting too bored.

The program is great, sure it has some flaws but the important thing is it motivates you. I notice little differences as time goes by. For me it's those little differences that are meaning more than the numbers on the scale now. That's not to say I'll let the scale creep back up, I will never let myself go over 200 lbs again...

P90X Days 46-48 Day of Depression is all you need

Friday, November 13, 2009

Normally I don't blog 3 days at a time. Day 46 got off work in the morning enjoyed a yummy free Veteran's breakfast it still feels weird to me that I'm in that "club" I know I've served my time and went to war but when I see WW2 vets Vietnam and Korea, I think my tour of duty pales in comparison to the things they've seen and went through. Got a short nap in following breakfast and then my Dad came and we almost finished siding the front of the house just ran out of daylight. It is finally coming together. By the time that was all finished I had no go juice for yoga it was off to bed for a fabulouse 12 hours. Day 47 woke up with no motivation feeling depressed about the break up and the fact that I poured my feelings out to him in a letter and received no response. It made me feel really bad and while I didn't eat my weight in food I did manage to sleep an entire day on the couch except for the hour when I went shopping and got a new exercise band and some Christmas presents for my niece. Back to bed felt really blue. Woke up about 4 in the morning and I said to myself I gotta get it together this is stupid to waste my life away being upset...enter Day 48. Started by cleaning and organizing the kitchen followed it with some raking, followed that with yoga, followed yoga with Legs back and ab ripper, followed that with some shopping to fill up my clean refrigerator. Gonna take a short nap after doing this blog and then do Kenpo. Maybe I just needed that day to be sad, cry and sleep. It made me realize I shouldn't sacrifice my success being upset over his stupid ass. I'm pretty sure that I am meant to be alone but I am going to continue to plug away at being happy with it, besides I got my 2 dogs and my three legged little kitten to cuddle on the couch with me when I am sad it is true that pets make you a happier person. So while I fell off the wagon for one day I decided I want to continue to bring it.

    My husband feels the same way about Veteran's Day :*) I tried to get him to do P90X, but it was a no go...ah well LOL...he does do the 10 min workout videos by Tony Horton, which is something! Me? I am still laid up, but I can't wait until I can try Jilian Michael's 30 day shred :*) Keep up the great work - and happy belated Vet's Day! emoticon emoticon

Day 45 Rest is a blessing

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

It paid off to skip the plyometrics disc yesterday and ride the bike instead. All my aches and pains have subsided for another day. Got in the back and biceps and ab ripper workout in today one of my favorites. And the biggest reward of the day halfway through p90x!!
