I'm not an emotional eater but moreso someone that gravitates to the fridge when I'm 'idle' I'm usually a busy body into stuff and don't have time to cook and eat healthy. But these last 21 days made me fully aware of this habit. <BR> <BR> 21 day of prep, cook, eat, wash dishes and sleep!!

Its about Detoxing your body but no like the detox you probably think this is about. STOP - This is cleaning your body from the inside and proving it nutrients/minerals we don't get much these days because we have gotten away from organic foods w/o pumped chemicals and such. This is not a weight loss program either that is an added benefit from changing your diet from meat/d... Thu, 3 Jan 2013 13:20:15 EST Its been a Minute...

I am a music freak of all genres so this is the perfect mix of music and dancey kickboxing its like Heaven i'm sure. <BR> <BR> The HIIT workouts are killer shorter but killer! Your heartrate is on full overdrive even hours after the workout. <BR> <BR> The schedule is you workout for 6 days your 3rd day is your REST Day. You have the option of wearing weighted gloves for more intense workout (as if u need more) but it will help you burn mor...

And to keep the flame lite under my booty to finish strong! <BR> <BR> I am pleased with my results (baby belly is disappearing)! I am very surprised by the changes so far, I didnt think my body would change this much. <BR> <BR> I am using the scale but more so going by the changes in clothes that are now falling off my hips/waist/thighs!

I decided this version last week bc I wanted to amp up my strength that i have gained in Phase 1 and 2!

I can't wrap my mind around the fact I have almost completed P90X. At the beginning of the program I was really determined to successfully complete the program, but had always had in my mind "90Days is a long committment". Then I thought, if I could sign a 2 yr term contract with cell phone service and be content then this fitness committment is POSSIBLE! LOL <BR> <BR> So week 1 of Phase 3 going great I am seeing the results and endurance to keep up w...

Make it as hard as your can... the worse thing that happens is you have to go back to the "easier" way - the best thing... YOU GET FASTER RESULTS! HELLO!!!!! <BR> <BR> It spoke LOUD tonight...

So off I go!!! Whew, this is going great till I hit .45miles, I slowed down to fast walk, thinking damn I really got to stay on pace. So I picked up to a jog again at .75mile, I literally said WTH was I thinking- where in the hell is ... Tue, 11 Oct 2011 18:03:23 EST P90x - Phase 1 Recovery Week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4519577 I am really proud to say that these last 3 weeks I have seen a totally energy transformation. <BR> <BR> I can really hang with the gang in some of dvd's, Ab Ripper X I thought I would never be able to even do 3 out of the 11 sets, but here I am doing all 11 sets well within 20/25 reps required each exercise. I am digging Ab Ripper X! <BR> <BR> My favorite DVD is Plyometrics, I really killed this earlier this week, and went in 120% and getting tired the last 20 minutes of the dvd! "WINNING"... Tue, 4 Oct 2011 19:52:20 EST Do More Get More Out of It! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4510209 <BR> I'm in week3 of my P90X Journey. I must admit I was really skeptical as to being able to lose weight/inches doing this program, it was slow pace and not as intense as I expected. <BR> <BR> I started with Insanity and its intensity was a definite grueling challenging but fun workout. I knew I was working out because I was dripping in sweat EVERY single workout. In week 1 of P90x I was barely breaking a sweat, and was somewhat upset that I was not really "feeling" the workout. <BR> <B... Thu, 29 Sep 2011 11:31:49 EST Why do you sometimes gain weight when starting a new exercise program? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4509914 Why do you sometimes gain weight when starting a new exercise program? <BR> - By Chalene Johnson <BR> <BR> Probably the most common question I get when I release a new exercise program is, "Help! I'm gaining weight! Am I doing something wrong?" This is a common phenomenon with any new exercise program, Turbo Kick, Turbo Jam, Hip Hop Hustle, you name it! It's especially common (and temporary) with intense strength training programs like ChaLEAN Extreme or Tony Horton's P90X. <BR> <BR> ... Thu, 29 Sep 2011 09:08:52 EST Week 3 - P90X http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4507418 Alright I have entered Week3! Can't wait to Recovery Week. <BR> <BR> I must say although I had my reservations about the pace of P90X I still do feel the workout intensity. I must say I do enjoy the Ab Ripper X. I have actually started to get thru at least half of the exercises - 25reps in each set! I love Ab workout bc I know my gut will be gone one day! <BR> <BR> I do need to get hard resistance bands this weekend. i find myself doing more reps in order to tire out my muscles. Yoga X is... Tue, 27 Sep 2011 20:54:48 EST Gearing up for Week 2 of P90X http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4495063 Last week went well. <BR> I only missed 1 workout day - Kenpo! I'm sure I will be surprised with this DVD. <BR> <BR> I love the Plyometrics. I think because of Insanity Plyo which was VERY grueling. This time around it was a little slow pace as I expected, all the dvds seem to be this way Phase 1.

Tue, 20 Sep 2011 14:41:34 EST Insanity Intensity to P90X .... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4484297 Ok i have been doing P90X for the last week, Should be on Week 2, but I started over b/c I missed 2 days last week. <BR> <BR> I don't know how I kept up with Shaun T. intense fast-paced craziness. But I loved every second of it! I kid you not! <BR> <BR> P90X, thus far its slow paced, I'm sure b/c its just the beginning stages. The pace is driving me bunkers. Its too slow for me, but remember I am coming from the heels of completing Shaun T.'s Insanity program. These are 2 completely differ...

Alot of walking, but my food choices not so great. <BR> <BR> I teamed up with a college roommate lately and we are doing Weight Watchers (WW) Points system. She lost 50lbs in 2010 for her wedding, she looked FABULOUS!! We talked alot and she said it seems like I would benefit from it. I can still eat whatever I want, but I must account for my points for each day. This encourages you to make HEALTHIER...

TACONE, I havent' forgot our agreement! Let me know what our next Program is, I'm set ready to go. <BR> <BR> I have been busy with family in town and my baby girls birthday, all in all it was worth being absent for a while. But I did complete Insanity in all the past week. Thank God. My knees have had a chance to recovery from the madness Shaun T. put me thru. Funny, I lost more pounds in the last 2 weeks of Insanity than from 1st...

But when 2nd and 3rd weeks completion, I see myself making good stride in each video. I may not be able to do each interval at average pace, but my ability to take a breathe and dig back in sums up my experience ...

Let me tell you the Ab DVD WAS CRAZY! Pushing myself is my new way of life! I am lovin' it. <BR> <BR> This 60+ day journey with Insanity has given me a new perspective on healthy lifestyle. I took being young and active in my 20s for granted. Now at 32, metabolism has slowed down, and my active level. This program put the fire up under my BOOTY, and it burns like hell but it feels won...

I have some type of head & stomach issue. Who knows, but I plan on nursing this out of my system as soon as possible. <BR> I have had to cut some workouts short because of feeling dizzy (lack of eating, no energy to do full workouts; but I did get it my best as long as I could. <BR> <BR> I have 2 weeks left of Insanity, and I plan on going out with a major BANG!
