Day #28: Dynamix

Four Weeks into P90X3! It’s time for my weigh in and measurements:

___Category: ___Day #0: ___Day #28: ___NET LOSS:
___Weight ___154.4 lbs ___150.0 lbs ___4.4 lbs
___Chest ___38.0 in ___37.5 in ___0.5 in
___Upper Arm (Flexed) ___12.5 in ___11.5 in ___1.0 in
___Waist ___34.5 in ___30.5 in ___4.0 in
___Hips ___38.0 in ___38.0 in ___0.0 in
___Thigh ___23.0 in ___23.0 in ___0.0 in
___TOTAL INCHES LOST ___ ___ ___5.5 in

Nothing surprising here. I knew my weigh in would be higher than last week, because I’ve been eating garbage (and a lot of it) all week this week. I also knew my arms were looking better, though I was surprised by how many inches I lost off my waist! Go figure… hips and thighs are the same. It’s like that’s the exact location that my body likes to store fat.

I’m feeling pretty good about my progress, though I definitely (for the third day in a row, am going to say) want to get back on track with eating well! I have a difficult time because I sit around at home all day, so I’m not burning a lot of calories, and I sometimes boredom eat. Oh yes, that’s a thing. Nothing to do? Let’s find something to munch on!

Right now my goal is to not eat anything unless I feel hungry.

Day #8: P90X3 Week 2, Go!

I am so psyched to be starting week 2 and working on some of those goals I set last week!

I’ve already had a crazy productive morning… took my puppy to doggy daycare for the morning, which she loves, and is way more exciting than listening to me say, “Madelyn, no! Madelyn, stay! Madelyn, down!” all morning while I clean the apartment and workout.

Already got my Christmas tree taken out (I know, I know… but better late than never!), and the entire walkway from my door to the outside of the building swept and vacuumed because I’m not an ass. (Also because I don’t want to leave evidence that I just took my Christmas tree out in FEBRUARY for the neighbors to find!)

As of this morning, I am officially down to the weight I was when my hubby and I got together 15 months ago. This summer we went on a month long road trip while moving me from California to New York, so we ate out every single meal, and I put on a whopping 16 pounds! Ugh! That’s what happens when you’re driving Route 66 and insist on stopping in at every old timey greasy burger delicious milk shake diner you see (Williams, AZ – adorable little diner with amazing shakes).

Of course, I’m not stopping here. The best shape I was ever in, I weighted in at 140 lbs, and I would definitely like to get back there before we go to Japan this summer. I would be really psyched to get there with P90X3, because the last time I was there, I was running 30-60 minutes 5 days a week, and hitting the gym 5 days a week for strength training. It ate all my time, which is why I eventually gave up on it. So let’s see what you can really do, P90X3!
