Day #64/66: Decelerator & Eccentric Upper

Hullo! Prepare for the numbers to get wonky up top. I am doubling up some of my days so I can push through block 3 before my husband gets home… some time around the 23rd. Partly because I want to start the elite block after he gets home, partly because I know we’ll be eating out with family to celebrate his return, and I am going to be super clingy I-don’t-want-to-spend-30-minutes-working-out-instead-of-cuddling-you for a few days. The reason I’m not going in order (you’ll notice I did day #64 & #66 today) is that I’m trying to match up workouts that work different parts of my body, so I can still get the most bang for my buck.

Why am I doing P90X3 if I have an hour to kill instead of P90X? That’s a great question. Because… P90X3 is what my husband was doing. I’ve never done P90X, though I hear it’s a great workout. So maybe I’ll do it when my husband goes back to the ship for 90 days in August!

Day #61/62: Triometrics

I was going to double up on workouts again today because I’m still two days behind from being a slacker on vacation, but…. instead, I decided to take my puppy to the beach! It’s only about a mile round trip, so we walked it, and then she ran at least another mile or two back and forth across the frozen lake. Passed out on the couch (after a bath, because of course she found the only muddle puddle) and made it super easy to get my workout done!

Edit: Fake Out! I ended up doing Total Synergistics after all. Something about those Cadbury Eggs just made me feel like I should. >.>

Day #57: Decelerator

I am finally back from vacation! Terrified to step on the scale, but it’s happening tomorrow.

I am a few days behind on my workout, but I am starting out at the top of block 3 – my last 4 weeks of P90X3!!! – with a brand new workout:

Decelerator is a little… weird. Some of it is extremely difficult for me (like the plyo moves), and some is like /yawn. It’s painfully obvious that my upper body is still my huge weakness. Nothing’s gonna fix it like keepin’ on keepn’ on, though.

Day #51: Dynamix

I am still here, and haven’t missed a day of P90X3! I just haven’t been posting, because I’ve been on vacation!

I’m visiting sunny California, and their (what feels like broiling) 65 degree weather. My husband was in port this weekend, so I was very lucky to get to spend lots of time with him. I also got to meet his captain, who invited me on board to take a tour! It was super exciting to see what my husband actually does (he always describes his job as “boring” and “doing nothing” but it seemed pretty complicated to me).

Time to go have more fun now!

Ok, so many of you have been asking about #wearyellowforseth and when it will be. #wearyellowforseth is something we’d like to do to be able to show Seth all the people in the world that are thinking about him. We have a map of the world in his room and will pin all the countries where people have posted a picture from. Also we will be printing some off and putting them up in his room. Whenever he is struggling (which is rare to be fair) we can show him your pictures.

Seth wanted to ask himself:

What are we asking? On 27th March 2015 we’d love for everyone of you to post a picture of you wearing something yellow to facebook, twitter or instagram with #wearyellowforseth. It doesnt have to be a yellow top, anything is acceptable. In fact BE inventive. Make him laugh!
