Day 2 P90X2, and darn you ON2VICTORY 70.3!

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Plyocide actually an absolute blast of a workout I caught on to the moves fairly quick. I feel stronger and I feel like I am going to improve my running with these workouts I love it.

Now on to part 2 of this blog. This darn On2victory cat, blogging about 70.3, when I have been thinking of dropping to the olympic due to injury etc. After all that heart to heart now I am so torn. Robert think we may be discussing this at length at the lodge...
Maybe just maybe the 58 miles of backpacking will decide for me (and hopefully not with another sprained ankle!)

    As long as you keep moving forward, doing your best and avoiding injury, it's a WIN! A DNF is often better than a DNS, but a DNS is better than an injury. Best to you as you face your decision.

    So a bit erratic I was trying to type it quickly. I am torn and thinking I want to give the 70.3 a go even if it means a DNF. It has been eating at me a lot, I'm still deciding...

Day1 P90X2 CoreX2

Monday, July 16, 2012

I liked this workout very much a lot of challenging moves that I am excited to master, some I could do very few reps with I may stick in phase one for an extra week or 2 until I master the moves. The nice thing on this workout it really addresses my weak areas. Tomorrow is plyocide, I am a bit nervous.

Starting a new challenge Monday

Friday, July 13, 2012

I am going to start P90X2 and I will be blogging my journey on the workouts, I am going to be off one week while on a backpacking vacation (10+miles a day) but other than that I will be kicking some P90X2 butt.

I am dropping down to the Olympic course for the Pigman, my training and ankle injury have made this decision for me. So next year will be 70.3 but I feel it is the safe, smart thing to do. Thanks to a chat with my buddy ON2VICTORY I feel better about making the decision. I was struggling with it because this will be the first challenge I have backed down from.

    It is wise to listen and be able to do it later rather then never. emoticon

How Committed are you?

Friday, July 06, 2012

I got thinking about this as I was talking to one of my P90x challenge group members tonight, he was talking how his wife has a fitbit, and asked if I knew about them, of course I pulled mine out of my pocket. It was then that I realized I will do every little thing not to go back to my before weight. I am committed to a healthy lifestyle no matter what I have to spend for food, workout programs, gym memberships, race entries, fitness gadgetry, and whatever else helps keep me motivated, engaged, and on track.I guess what it boils down to is that this is a lifetime committment but it is worth it.

Confession-my words to those struggling

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I stress eat, I was a stress eater today (6/23) I stress ate a couple days ago, I'm a stress eater. I'm just putting this out there because I think that we all need to be honest with ourselves in our journey to weight loss glory. I put it out there because in spite of my stress eating I still manage to be successful in weight loss maybe slowly at times. These are my words of wisdom to those of you who struggle from time to time, there might be a bad day, a bad week, month, year whatever amount of time, keep focusing on getting healthy, work through the struggles, forget the failures other than to serve as a lesson. Don't forget to look at how far you have come even if it is a small victory, such as I ate one less cheetoh than last binge. And know that it does take some work to get to the point where you forgive and forget, but just remember you would not be that hard on one of your friends for a slip up or 2 you would keep encouraging him or her, you would give them positive words of encouragement. Even those that have it all together here on spark have bad days, lack motivation at times, need a phone a friend. I still have days where I am hard on myself and don't want to cut myself slack but as I have learned to accept mistakes, shortcomings, things that I still presently struggle with (may struggle with for the rest of my life) the more successful I am because I don't fuel the cycle with the guilt and the self loathing that used to keep me from success. We are all works in progress, we are humans, we err, but we are capable of triumph. This week let's all be kind to ourselves, treat ourselves as if we were the friend that is struggling or triumphing, let's praise ourselves for what is going well, no negative nancy's this week If you binge hey you're already over calories eat a carrot, then at the end of the day you can say "but I ate a carrot" tomorrow I will improve upon that!

    Saturday was a totally BAD eating day. I didn't eat breakfast and that was not the way to start my day. Fortunately I was able to wake up yesterday and start over. There's no sense in beating ourselves up over mistakes . . . rather we should learn from them and keep trying to move forward.

You are a force to be reckoned with, I think :) Thank you for being transparent in your struggles and your victories. You are right: sometimes we are too hard on ourselves, and we should reach out~ to be encouraging or to receive encouragement more often. Wishing you a successful week. emoticon

    Truth!!! Thank you!!! As my friend, mentor and trainer (ON2VICTORY) says (almost ad nauseum at times haha), "Your progress is overall and not based on momentary slip-ups. YOU ARE WHAT YOU REPEATEDLY DO.
