Hey Ladies and Gents!
Week 3 of P90X3 is officially in the bag, so I thought I’d provide you all with another update. My hope in doing this is so that you get an idea of how the program has affected me each week (and in turn, may possibly affect you) and also as an additional motivator to stick with the program!
This week, I was a bit “off,” however. I think I caught some sort of sickness bug, as I had an upset stomach, was feeling weaker than normal, and was fatigued. As a result, I had to modify many moves and tone down my intensity of the workouts. My eating was also affected, not so much in the quality of my food, but the quantity (making sure I was eating enough). As a result, my feelings for this week are a bit jumbled. Although I didn’t feel “stronger” (ahem, I felt a heck of a lot weaker), I still improved in my Challenge results (wahoo…I eeked out more pull-ups and push-ups than ever before!), but that was probably the only area that I actually noticed better results (as I mentioned, I modified a lot of the moves this week as I didn’t want to make myself sicker). I’m not discouraged, however, as I know my results will be better this coming week as I’m beginning to feel back to normal.
As for weight loss, I’m down another 2 lbs, bringing my 3 week total to a 6.8 lbs loss, which I’m happy with. Again, it may not seem like a lot to some people, but for me it’s awesome and I couldn’t really ask for more. The weight loss is becoming more consistent, so I’m more confident now that it wasn’t just temporary water weight going out the window. I’m sure as the weeks progress that it will slow down a bit and I’m okay with that. As long as I’m getting stronger, fitter, and feeling better, I’ll be happy with my results.
I’m pretty excited for this coming week, as we’ll be doing 4 new workouts (and a little sad that the Challenge workout isn’t in the line-up…I’ve come to love it). For those of you who do Dynamix on your rest day, then it will only be 3 new workouts. My husband and I opted to not do it on our rest day as we usually got together with friends to play some recreational sports.
After this coming week is over, I’ll post my weight loss and measurement results. I’m pretty excited to see how those turn out as I can already see some positive physical changes, so it’ll be nice to have more accurate numbers. ‘Til next time, I hope you all have an awesome week of working out and eating healthy (and feeling amazing!).
