Sorry just getting irritated as I browse exercise equipment online. I hate that items such as these are given labels for men or women- often only based on a colour change. *rolling eyes*
I couldn’t do anymore of the chin up/pull up workouts on the legs and back p90x workout yesterday because my apartment doors are not strong/thick enough to hold them on safely. So now I have to find a different way to do the chin ups because I would rather do those than get a resistance band to continue. Ugh :(
I’m now on Day 12 of p90x (yay me), and I feel like this week has been slow for me. I’ve been doing my workouts and even went to the gym once so far and jogged the track twice and I haven’t been losing any weight. I’ve even gone up between 2-4lbs since the lowest weight so far. Am I expecting too much? I feel like I’ve been eating well and I only drink water, tea and the occasional chocolate milk. I don’t know…. Does anyone have any advice?
I took a photo yesterday of my backside to compare it to the beginning of my journey. And whoa! :) I am so proud of the progress I have made on my bum. Those squats are definitely helping. Nowhere near finished obviously but I am so glad I took an updated pic. I don’t think I’m going to post it on here, but I wanted to be able to celebrate this :)
And I have lost 8 pounds!! :) I weighed 158 when starting again :(, but I weighed myself today at 150! Going to be back in the 140s in no time. Really think I can get down to 120 by August :) Next summer I hope to be 115 and maybe even a bit toned? Who knows. But I am very proud of the progress I have made in the past 1.5 weeks!
I didn’t do the workout for Day 3 because I spent all day getting and setting up a chin up bar (which I still have to mount to the wall), which I thought I needed for the workout for today, and I just found out I didn’t need it till Thursday’s workout …. -_-
That, along with spending half my day sick, wasted the potential productive time of my day away.
So it is now 2am and I have work within hours and the chin up bar that I actually didn’t need today isn’t even up yet. So I have to get sleep before work, I decided I will come home and do today’s workout with tomorrow’s Yoga workout for P90x. So my day 3 and 4 will now be combined. This is definitely a one time thing, because 3 of the videos in one day is so not ideal. Also- I will be jogging the track tomorrow :)
My plans for the week (fitness-wise):
*After work tomorrow (Wed) I will do Day 3 and 4 of P90x and jog the track, maybe fit in some sports if I can.
*Thursday - P90x Day 5, 1.5hr at the gym, and 1hr yoga class, and again sports if I can fit it in.
*Friday - After work P90x Day 6, 1.5-2hrs at the gym, sports.
*Saturday - P90x Day 7 Rest Day/Stretch (Woo! first week will be complete), sports, jog track.
*Sunday - P90x Day 8, 1.5-2hrs at the gym, sports.
I keep feeling guilty for not doing it tonight, but I am going to sleep now because I have work. But I will redeem myself tomorrow for this. I mean … I’m still doing a lot and I’m eating super healthy compared to my usual crappy eating. Just gotta start eating and drinking more throughout the day.
Any advice is always welcome. Sorry for the long post. Has anyone else ever had to combine two workout days for p90x or anything for missing a day?
Gained most of the weight back during the school year. But I know this is my year. I am more determined now, and I know I can do it and stick with it, because I have done it before. I feel ashamed after all of the progress I did make to be back here again, but I want to be honest about it because I know that fitblr is the best support for my journey. This time is the one! I can feel it :)
Finally on track. I gained almost all my weight back that I lost last summer :( Feel like I failed a bit but it makes me more determined to succeed this time and stay on track! So now I’m going to try to get ahead and I’m staying ahead! I am more determined after seeing that I can actually do this. I just have to stay dedicated!!
Because since the end of last summer I haven’t been eating well or working out-progressively it got worse. I weighed myself yesterday. I gained back almost 20 of the 30 pounds I originally lost. I’m back to 150 :( So depressed. All of that work gone to waste, just to feel like I’m starting back at square one. I have 20 pounds to lose now to get to WG1 and 30 to get to my UGW, when I could have been there already had I stuck with my eating and work out habits.
