Well, my posts on this blog are getting shorter and shorter. Not only have I not been listing out all my foods...(don't know why) but I also haven't been doing my P90X work outs either!
I don't know what's going on other than to say Life Happens. I am still eating healthy and exercising...just not P90X style.
Today I got up and went to the gym for my work out. I did a 45 minute pump/core class and then I did 25 minutes interval training on the elliptical machine. I burned a total of 617 calories in that 70 minutes. Not bad. I did take the kids to McDonald's for lunch and TRIED to order myself a side salad--but they were out. Then I asked for a fruit and yogurt parfait and they were out of those too...so I settled for a water and the left over half of a protein bar that was in my purse. Then on the way home, I ate a bag of Bear Naked fruit & nut granola (170 cal) and it was SOO yummy!
For dinner, we took the kids to Mazzios for their buffet. I did fairly well by only eating 2 slices of their Lucky 7 pizza (160 cal. each) and a big salad with LIGHT ranch dressing and only tiny bit of it. But then later when we got home, I ate a yogurt cup with another one of the granola packets mixed in (300 cal. total) and then I felt REALLY guilty about that! Oh well....
Like I said.....Life Happens. I am not quitting p90X by ANY means...but I can't let it take over my whole life either.
Candy is always good about reminding me of this...this isn't just a "90 day thing" like some people like to think. This is my new life style---Forever. In 15 days when I am "officially" done with this program....nothing will change. I will continue on just exactly as I am right now. The only thing that will happen is that I will get back into my bikini and take my "after" pictures so I can compare and if I'm REALLY brave..I'll post them for you to see. Hey...anything would be better than the before pictures!! Ha ha! When I saw those, I KNEW I HAD to do something about my body!
