Upset--bit of a rant.
Tuesday, April 30, 2013      4 comments

This is a rant...and a bit of a pity party. But the bottom line is I really just need to get this out: Well...the last entry where I'd lost 8 lbs was a fluke, I guess. I gained it right back the next week--eating the same things and exercisin... Read more

Well the carb cycling (see last entry) is definitely working!!! I can honestly say this is the biggest weight loss (within a week) that I've seen from any diet I've ever tried. And I still don't feel like I'm missing out on things I want to eat/... Read more

Ahh well...I've not done p90x in about a month. Honestly...I find it irritating and kind of boring. I like going to the gym much better. Maybe I'm not getting the same kind of workout but...I figure it's better to go workout in some way everyday... Read more

Ah well, it seems I'm not the average bear--most people say the plyometrics are the toughest in the p90x series....no. My biggest challenge thus far--yoga. I definitely didn't get through the whole hour. Not sure if it was that i'd worked ... Read more

So yesterday was my first tackle attack on p90x! It wasn't easy. I ran into a few problems--most of the pushups had to be done on my knees which disappointed me at first but...I definitely feel the workout today so I guess it's ok, you kno... Read more

Alright! Got the P90x workout and nutrition plan from my sister and I've been going over it the last few days (haven't started it yet though). The diet seems amazing--I don't think I'll be missing anything I've been eating previously and I have ... Read more
