P90X Day 57 A lot more energy.

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Started the day by raking leaves for 2 hours which is a nice little calorie burn. I haven't had the energy for yardwork since I've moved in this house (3 years) Now that I have been doing p90x I have tons of energy (most days) and I feel like it is no big deal to do this kind of stuff. I am finally getting healthy. I like this feeling I like not feeling lazy. I like my energy level feeling high for once I was so tired of being the low energy person who couldn't rake their leaves. I went for a 3.5 mile walk after raking and it is now time for Chest/Back & ARX. I may also go for a short jog after doing the p90x workout. Made the most awesome meal today it was veggies and chicken with a spicy peanut butter sauce mmm...loaded with protein which these hardworking muscles need and a reminder that i'm still an awesome cook. To make my day seem even better my lousy Detroit Lions pulled off the victory of the year today!

    Awesome news all around! I'm loving having more energy to keep goinggoinggoing every day, too. The feeling that whatever gets thrown at me, I'll be able to handle it. Very empowering!

Keep it up, P90X buddy :D

p.s. Today's my day 60, so it's time for another round of progress pics. Are you planning on taking day 60 pics, too?

Day 56 P90x rest week complete

Saturday, November 21, 2009

I've probably enjoyed rest week too much. Time to hunker down and get back on it. This week was filled with me getting all the other stuff in my life done. I'm sad for recovery week to be over but I needed it. I was getting really wore down time to hit it hard again tomorrow. Time to accomplish my goals.

    I was a little sad to have recovery week come to an end, too! Today was Yoga X and I really tried to push it. I told myself, "these are the moments! You're in Phase 3 now - so Bring It!". LOL!

Zen and the art of a good motorcycle ride P90X Day 55

Friday, November 20, 2009

So this blog isn't about p90x or exercise or diet, but it is about health. It is important to remember who we are and what is important to us in life and what helps us get our spirit back. It is these things that help our success with our diet and exercise. For me I took a motorcycle ride today I haven't had the bike out much in 2 years because of the flood, and because I was in an unhealthy relationship (ie he wasn't into doing anything that didn't involve sitting in front of a television somewhere a bar or at home.) Before the break up and since the break up I have been reclaiming my life, vitality and fitness. I am getting more things done instead of blowing them off. I rode the motorcycle over to his house today he lives outside of town so it was nice glorious ride on this day. I saw him and he seemed to be a pathetic shell of the guy I used to date, he looked like he's gained 10 or 20 lbs he was completely drained of energy his house was in a state of disarray. I felt sorry for him, he's gotten what he wanted (single life) but he's realizing it is a lonely place. I didn't have feelings for him other than empathy, but I realized even though I have been struggling with the break up I have been taking care of myself through fitness and healthy eating. While I've had days where I've slept and cried and slept and wept, I get up the next day and do my workout eat healthy. He hasn't, he didn't look good and I just felt sorry for him, but I only cared about me I loved him but not the him he became and not the him he has become. In the end I hopped on my motorcycle told him good bye and smiled all the way home I may not be with him and I may not be thrilled with the pathetic state of my love life, but I'm happy with me and who I am working to become.

    This reminds me of one of my favorite songs by The Dresden Dolls. I'll share the lyrics:

so you dont want to hear about my good song?
you dont want to hear about how i am getting on
with all the things that i can get done
the sun is in the sky and i am by my lonesome
so you don't want to hear about my good day?
you have better things to do than to hear me say

god its been a lovely day! everything's been going my way
i took out the trash today and i'm on fire...

so you don't want to hear about my good friends?
you dont have the guts to take the truth or consequence
success is in the eye of the beholder
and its looking even better over your cold shoulder

i'm not suggesting you get to line me up for questioning
but jesus think about the bridges you are burning
and I'm betting
that even though you knew it from the start
you'd rather be a bitch than be an ordinary broken heart

so go ahead and talk about your bad day...
i want all the details of the pain and misery
that you are inflicting on the others
i consider them my sisters and i want their numbers

god its been a lovely day! everything's been going my way
i took up croquet today and i'm on fire

i picked up the pieces of my broken ego
i have finally made my peace as far as you and me go
but i'd love to have you up to see the place
i'd like to do more than survive i'd like to rub it in your face.....

hey! its been a lovely day! everything's been going my way
i had so much fun today and i'm on fire
god it's been a lovely day everything's been going my way
ever since you went away hey i'm on fire.....
i'm on fire...
i'm on fire...
i'm on fire...
i'm on...

i'm on fire...
i'm on fire...
i'm on fire...
i'm on...
so you dont want to hear about my good day?

here's a link to the actual song if you want to listen :-)

Goals They're lofty but worth a shot

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Lose 10 by turkey day.
Lose another 30 by X-mas for a total of 40 super lofty I know
Begin a jogging program working towards consistency.
Start a consistent jogging program on Xmas
Begin round 2 P90X on Jan 3. yes it is a quick turnaround but I need to stay with something structured.
By end of March be down another 30 lbs total loss 70
Begin round 3 P90x on April 11th
By end of July be down another 20lbs total loss 90 lbs.
July 18th a round 4 of P90X????
By end of december down 20 more for a total of 110 This would be a great weight to be at, I would still like to lose another 10 at that point but I think realistically I will only be able to get down to 168, I haven't been lower than that since 4th grade.
I hope to achieve each milestone but will not be disappointed if I miss one I am just going to keep working this is a long journey its not gonna happen over night.

How's your diet? Remember how important your nutrition is!! Be sure to have a plan for it, and the combination of your exercise and healthy nutrition will definitely get you where you want to be. :)

P90XDay 54

Thursday, November 19, 2009

So today for Kara's recovery week plan. I know I should be doing the p90x stuff but at least I'm still being active. I did a 2 mile walk and vent session with a friend and my 2 dogs. We've both been stressed out. Damn men! I thought I would feel really bad that I am stepping away from the p90 during recovery week but the truth is as long as I'm still moving I don't feel it is hurting me. The whole point of me doing p90 was to get some structure and get on a program that would keep me moving now that I've gotten back into shape I am doing a lot more on my own so I think that overall goal is still a success. Although tomorrow I am doing yoga for sure. It is the most challenging disc to me and it is the one I love to hate and hate to love. I know how much it is helping me I have a lot better coordination and flexibilty and I still suck at it but it makes me wanna keep working at it harder. Tomorrow should be a super busy workout and work around the house day so I shouldn't have to worry about nutrition issues tomorrow (stress eating) been doing pretty well with that. Made a ton of chicken breasts up the other day. So quick and easy.
