I'll admit, it has been a little longer than 60 days since I started working out again, but with the missed days along the way, today actually marks the 60th day of the p90x program. So we are going to say it is a 60 day update.
While I am aware that is is one of the most flattering poses for my body I still feel proud of the progress I am making. The last 3 weeks of switching up my routine a bit has helped a lot. The last WEEK of cutting out most sugar has helped even more. I was in colorado for about 5 days and it was basically a sugar cleanse for me. Without the hummingbird there to constantly offer me bites of sweets I was able to make it through the sugar cravings to the point where I no longer wanted it. Unless I am in serious low blood sugar mode- which I know just means I need to eat and a piece of fruit is a great start. I feel like I lost a noticeable amount of body fat just in the last few days from kicking the junk. I have been trying to keep my calories up, but eat a lot more vegetables and greens. It feels good. I have more energy and feel way less bloated.
Being in Colorado was cool. I saw so many healthy looking, active people, which was super inspirational. I know seattle has a lot of active healthy people but what was different I think was that a lot of women had noticeable muscle mass, I don't see that as much here and I thought it was really cool. I was on the recovery week of p90x- which is supposed to be a few days of stretching and yoga, some core workouts, and the more mellow cardio program. I kinda scrapped it. I did the stretching routine once and just skated every day. It was SO hot there and with all the driving and work I had to do I didn't really feel like doing my p90x in the hotel room. I did try to get a decent amount of exercise in though. I woke up early, skated a bunch and enjoyed the morning beauty colorado had to offer, went to work, then locked myself in the air-conditioned hotel room until it cooled down enough to go out and find some dinner. Kinda a nice relaxing trip- other than I missed the dog and the boy.
My goals for the next thirty days are to lift heavier, skate as much as possible, and keep off the sugar. I feel like if I stick to that I am going to be pretty satisfied with my 3 months of p90x. Today I did 63 more push ups than I did the first week of the program. Hell fucking yes.
