~ P90X... Week 7 ~

Tuesday, October 22, 2013


Today we had a fall festival with lots of sweets and I had to help organize and prepare the treats for the various stations. I had 2 small brownies, 1 small piece of white chocolate cheese cake and some popcorn. I wish I had not eaten it, but I can say that I did a lot better then I thought I would do. Will power is not my strong suit when it comes to resisting sweets, but this time last year I ate so much that I actually made myself sick! I found that I really didn't want to eat more! I still have a long way to go and I am back on track now... but it could have been a lot worse so I am not going to beat myself up about ... moving forward. emoticon

Monday: REST
- AM/PM Walk to and from work
- Shoulders, Chest & Triceps (Cathe Pure Strength)50 mins

Tomorrow: Back & Biceps

    With so many responsibilities, its hard enough to put in strength building workouts every other day, but I see you are planning to do Back & Biceps the next day after doing Cathe's Pure Strength workout??? Hopefully, you meant that you did Cathe's Pure Strength workout Monday as that was what I thought you originally planned, but I am afraid that you might have missed the Monday (as you now say Monday was a rest day) and got it done Tuesday instead. In that case, the prudent thing would be to do the Back & Biceps Thursday, not Wednesday. P.S., I missed doing Back and Biceps Wednesday but did it Thursday myself. Tomorrow, I will do Legs and Back and be back on schedule Monday.
    Don't fret if you miss a day or let other desires and activities interfere with your goals. That's life. You see highly paid athletes have set backs in big ways in the middle of a big game, but they seem to have short term memory of their setbacks and carry on the rest of the game as though nothing bad happen. Keep positive, you can win if you keep your mind free of needless worry over the setbacks. Each day is like an inning of baseball. Some days may be like a bad inning where the opponent scores several runs against you. But we are a team and wont let those days ruin each other's confidence will we?
    I read your blog dated October 14 and liked it. I would like to add that we sometimes need to relax our mind and give it a rest just as we need to give our bodies a rest from time to time. I see you have walked to and from work. I would try adding a few short periods of jogging during the trip back home since that will help ease your mind with more positive thoughts. You are less apt to fret over missed exercise or eating too many calories, if you give your body more of a workout on the trip back home. Start by jogging for 30 seconds at a time and walking one minute etc., and go from there. If you think this idea is worth a try, you can google C25K for a nine week program to go from being a couch potato to running a 5K race. I lost 13 pounds in 2 months on a program of alternating strength training with a walk/jog program. However, I spent 60 minutes on the walking and jogging, not the 30 minutes called for in the C25K program workouts. emoticon

    Life is too short not to have treats here and there. I had a delicious piece of chocolate after lunch today and I regret nothing! emoticon
