Yet another week has literally flown by in the world of P90X3. We’ve wrapped up week 6 and I’m still enjoying the benefits to my new lifestyle and workout program. My energy, strength, agility, confidence, and contentedness are all skyrocketing. Simply put – I feel amazing. Aside from the usual, I’m also noticing some other changes – my skin looks more vibrant and healthier, my immune system seems stronger (last year I got the flu twice – once in January and once in February), and my body seems more compact (as in less flabby). 😉 Past workouts that seemed difficult are getting easier and my reps and weight amounts have all been increasing. Again, I was able to decrease the amount of support in my pull-up assist and I was still able to do more reps with less support! Jackpot! I think my pull-ups/chin-ups are the most exciting part of this adventure. I’m slowly inching my way to being able to do unsupported pull-ups. When (I almost wrote if…but realized it’s not an if, because I am determined to do it) I am able to do one without the assist, I will post a video. For you fitness buffs who can easily squeeze out unassisted pull-ups, it may look pathetic, but for those of us who never thought we’d be able to do one, it will be quite the accomplishment (well, at least in my eyes!).
Today’s weigh in, itself, is quite exciting for me as I’ve officially reached the 10 lb weight loss mark!!! I cannot remember the last time I was able to drop 10 lbs (and definitely not in 6 weeks!). That’s another 1.4 lbs drop from last week. I cannot stress enough how proud I am of my work and how grateful I am to have found this program, the accountability I get from my challenge groups and husband, and the motivation I have from using Workout Tip Jar. With these tools, I am able to stay focused on my healthy eating and my exercising. At this point, after 6 weeks, it’s almost become second-nature. Eating healthy isn’t difficult and I’m enjoying all the foods I put in my body. In fact, I don’t even miss the junk I used to eat. To be blunt, feeling this incredible is way better than how junk food ever tasted. My journey itself is not over. I still have another 30 lbs that I’d like to lose (although that number may change depending on how my body composition itself changes). Yet, I know I can do it this time, and you can do whatever you set your mind to, too.
