~ Day 17/30 Reset ~

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

emoticon Quick update...

I didn't exercise over the weekend. I walked this week from work and yesterday I did P90 Sweat A & Ab Ripper A. Trying to stay on track this week.

Goals for the week:

W: P90 Sculpt A
TH: P90 Sweat A & Ab Ripper A
F: P90 Sculpt A
S: Saturday Special (Cardio HIIT)
Su: REST emoticon

... my eating has not been perfect either, but I am improving that one day at a time. I am going through so much right now, trying to refinance my home and other things. But I know that stress will always be a part of my life and I have to find positive ways to deal with it, starting with eating right and continuing to exercise.

Well, have to start work. Have a great day... I will try to check in again soon.

    Hi Dee - I'm with you! I know how you feel with so much going on and trying to take are of yourself with all the stress of everything else. We are going to get through this together! We will keep motivating each other and pushing each other to keep improving (progress not perfection) and find positive ways to deal with the stresses that we are both experiencing.

    Stress is a fact of life... and how we deal with it can make or break us! Glad to hear that you are aware of this and are still seeking new ways to decompress from it all!

    I still remember what you told me, "It's not about perfection. It's about persistence."

I'm so proud of you.

    I loved the paragraph about stress. I can relate to that. I have so much stress in my life but I have to learn to deal with it. Eating right and exercise will certainly help.

~ Day 7/30 Reset / 7/90 P90: Week in review ~

Monday, November 10, 2014

... so a week has passed and all is going great. I wanted to check-in with a review of my week and more information about the P90 rotation.

emoticon NUTRITION emoticon :

My diet has been pretty good, but I did drink coffee with cream last week. Starting tomorrow I will give up the coffee and start drinking tea again. emoticon This week I will try to post some of my meals for accountability.

emoticon EXERCISE emoticon :

Tony Horton came out with a new program in September called "P90". www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_pr
ograms/p90-workout.do?code=SEMB_P2_GOOGLE
... It is a kinder, more gentle version of the original P90X. Here is a description of it:

"Extreme programs like P90X aren't for everyone. So welcome to the all-new P90—your gateway to getting fit regardless of your age or fitness level! Legendary trainer Tony Horton has now created shorter workouts that are simple, doable, and less extreme than his others, but still just as effective. So whether you haven't worked out in a decade, or you're just looking to maintain what you've got, P90 opens the door for you to see dramatic, visible results in just 90 days!"


The program is based on full body strength training workouts (Sculpt), 3X's per week, alternating with 3 days of cardio (Sweat) and 2 ab workouts.

Here's a sample rotation of the 1st month rotation:
Week 1-4:
Monday: Sculpt 1-2
Tuesday: Sweat 1-2 Ab Ripper
Wednesday: Sculpt 1-2
Thursday: Sweat 1-2 Ab Ripper
Friday: Sculpt 1-2
Saturday: Saturday Special cardio
Sunday: REST DAY emoticon

... the workouts are great for beginners and people like me who have not done any strength training in awhile. Like other P90 strength training workouts, you can use tubing or free weights (dumbbells) to do the exercises. I used the tubing some of the time, but think that this week I will only use dumbbells because the tubing feels somewhat awkward for some of the exercises; I will just start out with light weights.

The exercises are not difficult but they are challenging. However, unlike the more advanced P90 workouts I didn't experience any intense muscle soreness, just enough to let me know that the muscles were adequately worked. For me, I could do most of the exercises, however, there are a few that contain planks and straight legged push-ups that I had to modify. I also want to mention that there is a modifier that can be followed for easier alternatives. This is the perfect workout to prep for more advanced p90 or any other more challenging strength training workouts.

Well, this wraps up week one. Week two starts tomorrow.

Have a great week

~ Dee emoticon

    The new P90 sounds awesome! Not everyone wants to end up puking after their workout! LOL

I personally DON'T think a ST workout needs to lead to muscle soreness the next day to be effective. You are not alone in thinking that way though... but remember, the more prepared you are going in, and the better you recover, the less soreness you will feel as a result! While still building a great base of muscles!!!

You are rocking it! emoticon
