#’s very similar to June. So I say these summer months were pretty darn good. Go me!
For August- I have to keep the momentum going, so I am going to BRING IT with P90X.
I’ve always wanted to try it and I think I can handle it now—if not, oh well, I better soon. I am mostly interested in the weight training though. So I’ll be doing just the 3 scheduled days of strength (back/chest, shoulders/arms, legs/back and ab ripper) and get the cardio in by running (3x/week) and spinning (1x/week). If time allows I’ll try the P90X yoga. Regardless I must do regular stretching, foam rolling or other (shorter) yoga DVD, especially to ease the IT band flares I’ve been getting. I will definitely hold back running if it worsens. *crossing fingers that it will not*
I did back/chest on Monday ---and WTH!! Nothing but pull ups and push ups….. I was already thinking- Ok, This is not for me…but then I was like- why the heck not! So I pushed through. Felt like GI Jane afterwards!! Obviously I didn’t do all the push ups or abs…. But I do my best and forget the rest… Tonight is shoulders/arms—my favorite area to work out!!
I am only focusing on August for now; don’t want to get too overwhelmed but I plan to continue the program thru Sept and Oct too. Just slightly modified to fit ME and my needs….. I have to train for the DIVAS Half Marathon in San Juan, P.R. on November 13!!!
In the nutrition dept, I finally got a decent protein and will use it daily, along with my multivitamin. As usual—I am aiming for 3-4 servings of freggies a day, lean meats, only good carbs (fruits, no white stuff), no fried, no junk/processed. So far, I’ve been spot on.
August is gonna be all about Consistency, Productivity, Awesomeness and YES-- ABS!!! I want them!!!!!
Let’s do this Sparksters!!!
