Week 2

Wooo. Week 2 is technically finished! So ill just give a quick update... no real loss in terms of inches although I think I might have lost a little? 1/4 in? Haha BUT I DID LOSE 1lb lol... doesn't seem like much but that's not bad after a 1.8 last week. normally (non-p90x), I would be lucky to lose 0.3-0.5 after a -1.8lbs but 1lb is not bad :) that means in 2 weeks i almost lost 3lbs which is great! I feel much stronger too. Ab ripper is getting a little easier each time I do it!

Also, what may have contributed to my lower weight loss this week might have been the slightly poor eating habits (LOTS OF SNACKING -_- like ice creams... DONUTS - no more!) and I didnt do as many extra workouts as I did the first week. I think the first week I walked/jogged at least 3 times with Mel outside... and this week maybe only once.

Anyways things are still great! I haven't missed a day but hopefully the boyfriend wont be scolding me for working out late tonite since hes not even home from work and I havent worked out AT ALL today... (TOMORROW IS WORK DAYY). So I still need to get my "legs and back + abs" in tonite... heh oops.

Summary of Week 2:
-1lb (-2.8lbs total)

Lose 1lb at least. and maybe get to 38in tummy? :P but id like to be 143-142 (142 would be AMAZING).

Week 1

Hello!!! Week 1 of P90X just ended yesterday :) yesterdays "rest/stretch" day was well deserved and felt SOO good. Results of first week? Pretty freakin good if i say so. Although im not sure how much of it was real... because i was eating so bad and not working out before p90x that i think i might have just lost water weight or soemthing...

146.8 to 145.0 = -1.8lbs
40in belly to 39in = -1in
34 to 32.5in waist = -1.5in

everything else stayed the same (thighs, arms)

but i LOVE p90x so far! Plyos is KILLER... but i LOVE it. My second favorite seems to be kenpo :) i thought it would be stupid but it feels good to punch haha. great for stress <3. And yoga wasnt too bad! i still dislike it... but that shit gets you sweating and panting like cardio does. also my back feels amazing! esp since  ive done like a bagillion "pull ups". i feel a new muscle between my shoulder blades :)

Anyways... here goes week 2! Lets see what happens :)

oh and ive been drinking shakes after each work out with flax seed and protein powder and i also sometimes jog/walk in the morning for like half an hour. no other real differences in diet... keeping 1000kcal.

10 weeks

10 weeks is what...70 days? lets try something....

starting today till the friday before school starts... i will weigh in every friday. i  am going to eat 1200cal max and work out twice a day for at least an hour total. BUT the trick here is i am going to try... P90X :)

Mel has been enjoying a morning run with Niko and Kiba (fostering a dog) and its about 35min... so that will be happening every morning or at least most mornings. the days it doesnt happen, ill walk/run on treadmill.

so ill at least get done with 2 phases before school starts. thats a good time to see results... hopefully ill lose enough :) its only 10 weeks so i hope ot lose 10lbs at least.

SO shake every morning (THATS IT). NO snacking (unless unplanned but ill still try to avoid it) - well healthy snacking is good. i will be probably using the "free" foods from the spark people diet mel and i are trying to master. free foods like fruits, veggies, corn, sweet potato, etc.

note that many of these P90 videos are already an hour so hour + morning jog is 90min workout a day. perfect. so lets try it :) i will take my first photos and weigh ins tomorrow (but my weigh ins will be fridays) and we will go from there. day one photo ---> day 30 photo ---> day 90 photo.

ive never done this so i may look different by the end compared to when i just did cardio and separate weights. this is like all circuit training. from what ive seen online, i expect to LOOK different and have the scale some what effected. some people look so much different in 30 days but have only lost like 5lbs or something. well see! ive always wanted to complete one of these programs.. like i wanna do insanity eventually and i have p90 so i might as well try it :) so many success stories... LETS DO IT
