Not much new here… I think the sickness is finally wearing off of me. Unfortunately the lower amount of calories that I have been eating is making additional progress on some of the videos harder. I was only able to stay at the same number of reps and weights in almost all of the excercises today. If I had done 20 push-ups last time, that is exactly where I fell on my face again this time. (Am I the only one doing push-ups until my arms give out and I crash on my face?) I think I need to re-evaluate that strategy, as I am ugly enough without the additional carpet marks ground into my forehead.
I have been staying lower on the calories this week on purpose. Seeing that I was sick a day and ate basically nothing, I figured I would go for some weight loss this week and try to stay down on the calories. I will weight-in on Monday after the Plyo workout and see if I was able to drop some pounds. I should because I have kept under 2000 calories each day, and just to stay at my current weight with a sedentary lifestyle required about 2600 calories a day.
I am also creeping up on the half way mark (Day 45 woo hoo) that will be on Wednesday. My original goal was to drop from 185 pounds down to 165 pounds. I need to be a least below 175 by then, as I figure it must get harder to drop the weight the further you get into this. I have also gotten my hands on the “Insanity” workouts, these things look like killers. My plan is to start that little bundle of joy about 2 weeks after completing the P90X workouts.
Amazingly, my wife and daughter have both continued on with the P90X workouts. I am not sure if they have “officially” started, or if they are simply going to count from the day they started doing what I had called “trial runs” of the DVD’s as their starting dates. At least we all have something in common now, before when I would come up from the basement covered in sweat, I would get the stink-eye from them. Get in the shower!!! What are you doing down there. That can’t be that hard to do. But now that they are doing it, I don’t hear any of that anymore.
