P90X3 Week 7 Review (Results and Update)

Week 7 of P90X3 has officially been completed.  Ahh!  How has that even happened already???  It truly blows me away at how fast time is flying by and how engaged and excited I still am with this workout program!  This week posed some challenges, seeing as Valentine’s Day was in the middle of it, but it was a minor hiccup and it definitely didn’t keep me from getting my workout in! (Of course, it helps when your “valentine” is your workout partner!).  We did go off our healthy eating plan a bit for Valentine’s (what can I say? We splurged.  Got to live a little, right?).  In a way, it was actually fantastic that we decided to have a couple of indulgent snacks/meals, because it reinforced how much better we feel when we eat healthy.  After going out for lunch, I felt bloated and just kind of “gross.”  I was excited to go back to healthy eating the next day.  Does this mean that I’ll never splurge again? Absolutely not, but it’s nice to have a reminder that what we fuel our bodies with impacts how we feel greatly.

Aside from Valentine’s Day, I continue to feel amazing overall.  My energy is still skyrocketing.  I’m getting stronger (lifting heavier weights, using less assistance for pull-ups) and I’m starting to really notice physical changes in my body and differences in how my clothes fit. My muscles are definitely becoming more defined and noticeable as well. I’m also seeing some obvious changes in my husband (particularly in muscle definition, as he doesn’t really have weight to lose at all).  It’s pretty exciting.

For my weigh in this week, I am down another 1.4 lbs taking me to a total loss of 11.4 lbs (despite Valentine’s day!).  To give you some perspective, below is a picture of my dog.  My dog weighs exactly 11.4 lbs.  I lost my dog off my body!  That’s insane.  I can’t imagine strapping my dog to my body and hauling her around all day!  Even though losses of only 1 lb don’t seem like much, when you add them up, week after week, it definitely adds up!  I’m excited to reach 15 lbs and then 20 lbs.

11pounds

Since this coming week is Week 8, we’ll be slowing down the intensity of the workouts in preparation for the third and final block.  I’m definitely going to miss some of the workouts (MMX, Incinerator, Eccentric Upper…), but am looking forward to taking my Week 8 measurements!  I’m hoping for another inch or so off all the different parts of my body.

Again, I am just so happy to have an amazing accountability partner, motivation from Workout Tip Jar, and the support of my Challenge Group.
