Weight Loss

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013

Earlier this week it suddenly occurred to me that I’m actually down 60 lbs. In 2006 I reached my highest weight ever, 226 lbs, which was well into the obese range for my...

Beginning Phase 2 of P90X2

Phase 2 of P90X2 is the strength phase of the program, and is similar to the original P90X, except it is 5 days a week with two rest/stretch days instead of 6 days with 1 rest/stretch day. Otherwise, it follows the same alternating strength & abs, cardio and yoga pattern as the original. The biggest difference is the types of exercises. On the chest and back...

My thoughts after 3rd week of P90X2

This week I did better on some exercises and worse on others. I wasn’t as flexible as I was the prior week, and I had a nagging soreness in my left shin for several days. Finally yesterday I’d had enough of it and decided to really go after it with my rumble roller and apply more pressure, for a longer time. Honestly, I was half expecting that was...

My thoughts after 2nd week of P90X2

This is going to be a short update because the foundation phase of P90X2 repeats the same workouts each week, so I don’t have many new things to report. During the second week of the foundation phase of P90X2, I saw some improvements in my ability to do more of the unmodified moves. I’m keeping my balance most of the time, and am doing more...

My thoughts after 1st week of P90X2

Ok, first the cons–this program is not for everybody. This is actually my second attempt at P90X2. My first attempt was when it first came out (I think it was in 2012). Honestly, I didn’t like it the first time. P90X2 was a huge departure from P90X. The equipment was different, there were two rest days instead of one, there was a conditioning...

My thoughts after completing P90X3!

Yesterday, I completed the last workout of the P90X3 Classic schedule. The last week was a rest week with lower intensity exercises, which was perfect timing because between the poison ivy and the medications to treat it, I was a zombie all week and struggling with motivation for the first time since I started this workout program. So rather than a sprint...

My thoughts after 12th week of P90X3

Next week is my final week of the P90X3 classic schedule. It is a rest week referred to as “Victory Week” on the calendar. This third block of P90X3 was challenging, as I expected. It had more workout days in a row between rest days than the earlier blocks did. Like the earlier blocks, I saw gradual improvements from week to week, which is fine...

My thoughts after 11th week of P90X3

i’m feeling a bit out of sorts this week, but am not sure why. I won’t go into details, but there were plenty of things going on last week to cause me a great deal of stress, but I felt ok until yesterday and then the exhaustion suddenly hit me all at once. I made an effort to get out in the sun today to wash my car and do a little yard work before...
