With a new chapter in my personal life beginning (my divorce is finalized Monday) and a sigh of relief that I am getting a fresh start, I think the last five weeks of P90X for this round are going to reap amazing results! If you have read my blog before, you may have read about "My Challenge" before... I have remained in the game overall in the P90X and being active everyday but the past couple weeks have been overwhelming as I am processing the last few emotions and documents as this relationship finally, legally comes to a close. I'm ready for my fresh start! So "MY CHALLENGE" is on! It's a personal workout and diet challenge that I know, if followed, will reap great results!


Days: 35 Days (Month 3 of P90X)--January 14th through February 17th

1) Continue doing P90X daily... All 35 days.
2) Run 1 mile daily (try to beat time each day from day before)... Days 1-32.
3) Do 50 burpees (time the burpees)... Days 1-32.
4) Do Ab workouts routinely (Ab Ripper X on set days and Boot Camp Abs on other days)
5) Remember P90X is TOP PRIORITY!
6) Days 33 & 34: Run 3 miles.
7) Day 35: Do 100 Burpees.

1) Eat 1200 to 1500 calories per day

**meal #5: protein drink + raw veggies.
3) Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day
4) Drink unlimited unsweetened tea
