Week 8 Review (Results and Update)

Unbelievably, month 2 of P90X3 is now over!  Seriously have no idea where the time is going!  I was a bit nervous about month 2, as I was worried my results would start to peter out, but was pleasantly surprised that my progress has continued (both in terms of my body and mind). I’ve been continuing to eat healthy (albeit with a couple more “cheats” due to Valentine’s Day) and have been on target with my workouts via the Classic Workout Calendar.

My energy has continued to be through the roof and I’ve been in a better mood overall. I’m feeling stronger, happier, and healthier. Doing the workouts with my husband has been fun – I highly recommend doing a program with your spouse or significant other.  It’s an enjoyable and different way to spend time together and it allows us to be silly and get in shape at the same time.  Plus, seeing results in each other is an added bonus! 😉

SO…on to the results (that’s really why you’re reading this, isn’t it??).  Month 2 has given me very similar results to Month 1, as you can see below:

Overall, I’m really happy with my inches lost!  Although I didn’t lose as many inches as I did in the first month, I lost the inches from the areas I wanted to (i.e. waist and down).  I’m also not sure what’s going on with my arms (I’m thinking the muscle I’m gaining is counteracting the fat I’m losing???).

Obviously, I’m pretty stoked about my results so far with this program.  I didn’t expect miraculous changes, as I’m doing this the healthy way, but I am getting better improvements than I had even anticipated.  I mean…I’ve lost a foot off my body!  Crazy sauce!

Today starts the third block of the P90X3 Classic Schedule, so I’m excited to see what the final block brings (although my husband and I will likely do the additional bonus Elite block afterwards, as well). My hope is to be able to squeak out a pull-up without the dang assist (fingers crossed…).

Again, if you want some easy motivation, check out Workout Tip Jar or find an accountability partner or challenge group.  Remember this is a lifestyle change, not a quick diet. Happy fitness, everyone!
