P90X Day 44

Yes, I am still at it! And actually loving it right now. Feeling stronger and seeing results! Not losing any weight, so definitely gaining muscle and that’s fine by me.

Not like Shoulders, Back and Tris at all!! Too many push-ups. And I like push-ups, there’s just too many of them in that workout!! I actually skipped through it last night, only doing the ones I really liked. I also find that Tony talks waaaa-aay too much in that one, and if you fast forward through the 55 minute workout, you’re getting maybe a 45 minute workout.

I am also training for a half marathon in April. Oooo! I have heard that running diminishes any muscle gain. Well, I also read in my new Oxygen magazine that you can gain muscle and run. So we shall see. I am trying to lean out so I can actually seen the muscle. My body fat is super high for my size and that’s just crazy. I’m trying to change the way I eat and see if that will help.

I can't wait to say I have reached Day 90!

P90X Week 5 Day 32

And so I enter a new month….this is my first time doing most of these workouts and I like them! Tuesday I did Shoulders, Chest and Tris for the first time. Last night it was Back and Biceps for the first time.

I am loving Backs and Biceps! My arms are still sore! I did pretty good with all of the moves and competed the whole workout. With Shoulders, Chest and Tris, I did maybe half the workout, and that’s mainly because I had a bootcamp class earlier that day that wore out my muscles.

I am going to try and go heavy with all the moves that I can. My biceps are pretty string, but I was scary last night, still doing 10s. I do have an interchangeable hand weight set that was a 12.5 weight, so I may try using those.

Do I see results so far? Not really. I feel a bit stronger. Have lost a few pounds since the start of the year (actually I lost and gained and lost again which is bad). This month, if I stay focused and on, I hope to finally start seeing results!

I can’t believe I am a third done already! Sheesh!
