I honestly planned to have before and after photos and an update with measurements lost. However this past weekend just got away from us and we didn’t even get a chance to take them. P90X has definitely become a way of life. I don’t even think about working out half of the time. The previous week is what they call a “rest” week though it isn’t technically resting. The week is full of cardio, yoga, and stretching, no weight training. Definitely not one of my husbands favorites.
We did encounter our first missed workout. Sunday we enjoyed a day at the beach with the family. Unfortunately my husband’s feet got really burnt. So much so that his ankles were swelling up quite a lot. His feet were in too much pain and he needed to stay off of them so we missed Monday’s workout. However we did get in each workout after that. It might not have been my husband’s favorite week but despite the “rest” he actually had a record week in weight loss with a 2.8 lbs lost.
For me this past week was very challenging food wise. I did have a minor slip one day and had Chipotle and I went all out with sour cream, cheese, and guacamole. I also found myself snacking on some candy here and there. My weight loss for the week was .8 lbs. However considering my slip ups I was very happy to see a loss.
I don’t have before and after photos but I do have a photo my son snapped of my husband and I before we headed out to the movies. I am definitely feeling more confident and fit.
I do have weight loss measurements, however I don’t feel that it truly represents the progress we have made. It is so much more then just losing weight.
Total weight loss in 4 weeks 9.5 lbs
Total weight loss in 4 weeks 6 lbs
We have moved into Phase II of the plan which allows for a few more carbs. I had initially decided NOT to change the way I was eating but I then decided to take advantage of this added food to see if eating more will yield a larger weight loss. I know that sounds “strange” but I’m hoping the extra carb will increase my energy level even more and help speed things up. I know that I haven’t been eating as much as they suggest (which is 2,400) calories. The reason is even though I’m working hard I don’t think I”m burning nearly what they project you to burn so I think I have a good balance.
