Alrighty, since I've been back on the horse, I'm trying to reverse the "damage" as quickly as I can. I'm doing 5 million times better with eating now that I'm back to tracking my food. I was over my calorie range by 62 calories today, but this is the first time all week I've been over. I'm also not going to beat myself up over those 62 calories because I was genuinely hungry.
My husband purchased P90X2, recently. I've dabbled in the P90X workouts; he's pretty much a grad of the first program. I'm really wanting to lose these extra pounds and work on my core strength since marathon training isn't that far away. I was pretty satisfied with my "fit test" results--I was pretty much right where I expected I'd be. I thought I'd share them.
Resting Heart Rate: 62
Pull Ups: 0
Vertical Leap: 10"
Push ups: 9
These are "boy" push ups and your chest had to touch a towel on the floor to count
Toe Touch: +2"
Sitting on the floor legs out in front you extend your arms and try to touch your toes. Touching toes equals 0, if you can reach further measure how much further.
Wall Squat: 1 Min. 35 Seconds (isometric hold with legs in a 90 degree angle)
Bicep Curls: 15 reps with 15 pounds (no breaks, as many as possible until failure)
In & Outs ab test: 45
Heart Rate Maximizer... this was jumping jacks at a steady pace for 2 minutes, with the last 30 seconds being as fast as you could go. Immediately after my HR was 171, 1 minute later 118, after 2 minutes of rest 106, and after 3 minutes down to 84. It seemed like I recovered pretty quickly.
I also did a full set of measurements. I've honestly never done that before!
The good news is I'm definitely fit enough to do P90X or P90X2, I'm just not sure if I'm ready for the intensity. I also really enjoy going to the YMCA and doing classes there, plus I'm a little concerned about over doing it with the running, too.
Anyone out there have an opinion on either one? Am I biting off more than I can chew?
