RE: X'ers ..... Thursday * Feb 1
Classic/Phase 3/Week 1/Day 4
Had a great Spinerval session with the Garage Boys, 7 of us sweating away. It was good I feel better afterwards (mentally) with Cardio Coach. When I got back, worked DH on upper body weights and I also did AbX.
I'm going to experiment a little with my food. I've been doing 2 carb servings a day per Phase 2 eating (mostly oatmeal as those carbs) so will lower that to 1 serving a day and see if it makes a difference. My BF% on my Tanita scale has not budged off of 26% plus, whereas I started P90X at 25% plus. I know it's not accurate, but you are supposed to at least see a trend. Also, my 30 day pictures looked better than my 60 day so I'm thinking it's the eating. Just for kicks, I'm going back on Phase 1 to check it out. I'll of course monitor my energy levels and if they take a dive, I'll up the carbs, or maybe like 2 servings every other day or something like that. Of course it's almost TTOM so I'm not pleased with puffiness showing and weight is up, but weight will go even higher when TTOM comes so that's not cool. Get sooo frustrating to be doing P90X (an extreme workout program) and not getting lean results. However, I am really pleased by my strength gains. But I must admit, I'm doing this for vanity purposes mainly, not to say I did 500,000 pushups. Maybe my body has just adapted to this whole thing. Anyways, don't worry, I'll finish P90X.
Anyways, today was a combo of Bryan Kest Power Yoga and then Eoin Finn's Magically Hips premix for a total of 60 minutes. I really needed to stretch out my legs from the spin session last night. They do feel good today. I'll see if they will feel okay for doing L&B tomorrow and still have enough left for Sunday's bike ride. Otherwise it may just be backwork and a little bit of leg work. We'll see.
Traci, the end is near!!! Bet you will just breeze thru Core Syn today! You may even do the spins at the end of the Dreya Rolls to celebrate!!!!!
Tracy, you are so close too. Your leg workout looks great. I'm just not sure if anything works on these legs at all. They are just short and thick (though strong). Later on, I may do the Firm It Up workout from Slim Series for a while, that gave me some good results in the past. I'm so afraid of doing heavy weights to make them bigger under the fat.
DB, Wow, Brian Kest's seemed not too tough? Yes, some of those gals are soooo flexible. I am not, however. Don't think I ever will be like them, but I can improve some. I like Bryan's chatter though. You go girl, with the 25#ers! I think DH could use those soon.
Got to go now ladies, BBL.
