Well, I've decided to do the P90X Doubles version this round instead of the classic. I've come to the conclusion that I am building more muscle mass than I really want and not burning enough fat. With the "doubles" version, I'll be adding in a lot more cardio and I am going to try to do more reps with a lower weight during the weight training. Previously, I was using 10's, 15's and some 20's for the upper body work...but this time I am going to try to limit myself to mostly 10's for arms and legs and 15's only for the back exercises. If I move a little faster than the people on the video, I should be able to get a few extra reps in on each set. That's my goal anyway.
That being said, I was a little disappointed when I turned to the "doubles" schedule in the back of the guide and saw that the first month of "doubles" is identical to the first month of "classic." Oh well, I'm sure the people at Beach Body know what they're doing. I figure if I have extra energy, I'll just jump on the elliptical machine that I just HAD to have and burn some extra calories that way.
So...today I'm very proud of how I've eaten. I had 1 1/2 c. of raisin bran with skim milk for breakfast.
A few hours later I had 2 tbsp. of organic, 100% natural peanut butter. YUM!
For lunch, just now, I had a cereal bowl size salad with carrots, peppers, tomatos, cucumber, cauliflower, egg and grilled chicken with 2 tbsp. Light Ranch; 5 low-fat Ritz crackers and a small serving of fresh green beans.
I did Shoulders and Arms this morning along with Ab Ripper X and LOVED every minute of it. Love the shoulders, biceps, triceps!
Now I'm all showered and sitting down to do my work (for the dr. office). Tonight we are going to a family fun night at church and I'm looking forward to just chillin with my peeps. The only negative: the food. It's gonna be pizza, chips, cokes and desserts for all! AUGH! I made a HUGE salad to bring with me though (and a pan of low-fat brownies) so at least I'll have something healthy to eat! Now if I can just keep my fingers from wandering....:o)
How are all the rest of you doing? Kandy, Candy, Kate, Tori??? I wanna hear from you every day (if possible) so we can keep encouraging each other!
