Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Day 60

I have a ton of work to do, so I am going to make today's entry short and sweet.
I ate well...I did the work out and pushed myself to muscle failure with EVERY set. (Today was Shoulders & Arms with ARX) I also have to mention that for the first time in P90X history--I did ALL 50 Mason Twists with my legs up! I also did all the in & outs, forward bicycles, backward bicycles and crunchy frog's without taking a single break, which is a first. Those Fifer scissors get me every time though. So far I have not been able to complete all 25 without at least one rest in there somewhere.
Anyway, according to my new HRM, I burned 387 calories during the arm workout and 71 during ARX. Those numbers seem REALLY low to me...but who knows? that around what you get on those workouts? Ironically, my average HR was 111 for both workouts.
For eats today, I had:
Breakfast: The usual (oatmeal, apples, raisins, walnuts)
Lunch: Light hotdog with WW bun & mustard
Snack: 1/4 c. chicken salad with Kashi whole-grain crackers
Dinner: Baked tilapia, stuffed baked potato (with spinach, FF cheddar and sauteed onions), asparagus, 1/2 blueberry muffin (made from nutrition guide).

Yes Jen, those numbers are right about there. If you would have had your monitor in the beginning you would have seen much higher numbers initially because your fitness level wasn't where it is now. Thats what I experienced anyway, My numbers were more in the 400-500 range, but I was also out of breath and had to pause the Dvd a couple of times which I don't anymore. I find now that my heart rate doesn't even go waaaay up like it use to but just enough to be in my zone and occasionally over and my heart rate comes down much faster then it use to. But now I experience lower numbers on the heart rate monitor as far as calories burned, and that is why I have up'd my cardio to additional bike riding, jogging and walking each day, to help compensate the amount of calories burned. Until I reach my goal, I want to burn as much as possible in each day. I think that the lower numbers is due to a much better conditioned heart, and it sounds like your right there as well. Good Job!
