P90X Week Three Day 2

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

DANG I worked hard today! So much for this being an easy workout. Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining and I brought it on myself. I'm still not losing weight, which has me very annoyed, so I bumped up my weights where I could and my reps everywhere. I literally pushed my muscles to exhaustion. If I still had more power in me, I paused the DVD and kept on going. I also did the bonus round again. By the time I got to it, I considered skipping it but since I'd done it both times before, I went for it. Then, ... it was time for Ab Ripper X. Holy crap! I wasn't sure I was going to make it through. I even hit pause and rested a couple times and skipped one of the exercises completely. Now I can't even remember which one it was. I was so glad to get to the end of it. I was soaked in sweat. My muscles were screaming at me and I would have liked nothing better than to crash right then and there. Unfortunately that was not an option.

Do you suppose maybe Tony was ticked at me because I stood him up yesterday and went for a bike ride instead. Do you suppose maybe he decided to teach me a lesson. Hmmmm..... I'd like to say "I'm sorry Tony. It won't happen again. " but when the weather is unseasonably warm, I've missed my morning workout due to time constraints and my bike is calling for me, it's hard to resist. What I will say is I will do my best to fit my routine in every morning whenever possible so I won't have to choose one over the other again, but that's the best I can do.

    Way to go on pushing yourself... but DON'T overdo it!!! Do your best and forget the rest... Your body is probably retaining a TON of water to heal the muscles and compensate for how hard you're working them. I am super competitive with myself, and I find it usually gets me into trouble. Your increase in inches is probably due to the fact that you're working on and building the muscles right now, and the fat around them hasn't changed. Try to work in your fat burning zone a little more...
    just a suggestion... :)

    you're doing great! don't let numbers deter you!

    I watched this video that one of the coaches put on youtube and he said that if you are trying to lose weight then you shouldn't take in as many calories as the guidelines have you take in...he said that if you want you can take in less cals to have you lose weight. That is what I am doing. Mine said that I should take in 1800 but I am taking in 1500 instead. Maybe that would help you with the weight loss. Also, if you want to lose weight and have lean muscles you do less weight on more reps....if you want to build muscle then you do more weight. So maybe you want to lessen your weights and do more reps. :) I am sure you already know all this but Hope that helps some!
    Terrah!!! :)
