Update on P90X3!

April 24th, 2015 at 05:23 pm

Today was Day 12 of P90X3! I had super happy with how it is going so far! I am down about 6.5lbs and even though it is TOUGH I really do enjoy it!

I have a good schedule set up now that I have moved to live with fiancé and work from home. I get up at 5am, go into my office/workout room and turn on my computer and DVD player. While they are booting up I go change into workout clothes, brush my teeth, fill my water, etc. Then I go log into my computer and while my programs are opening I do my 30-40 mins of P90X3. When I am done I shower and am ready to get to work by 6am. My schedule starts at 8am, so I get 2hrs of OT in every morning. I work for my 8hrs, and while working I try to do arm exercises, squats, lunges, etc. I often times have meetings via phone, or long hold times, and these are great opportunities to get in a few reps! My shift ends at 4:30 and I frequently work more OT (since I no longer have any commute time!) and then have the rest of the evening to do housework, be with DF, and relax. I try to be in bed by 10pm at the LATEST. One of the many things they stress on the P90X3 is to focus on getting enough rest. I am loving working from home, living with DF, and I also am really enjoying the P90X3, it keeps things fresh!

Food is still a struggle. I shouldn't blame anyone else....but honestly.....DF SUX at this! He says he will try to help me, support me, etc......then he brings home a pizza?! HUH?! He loves to eat and so do I and I have a hard enough time with willpower as is, but if it's not here, I CANT eat it....Bringing at here is already a fail for me....Blah...LOL. I am for sure vocal about how I feel about the bad food he brings home so hoping he is finally getting it.

I have not bought any pop for the house since I have been living here...about 2 weeks. I still have an occasional pop if we go out to eat. But I know that needs to stop too. I primarily drink water with Crystal Lite, I found a peach tea one that is AMAZING!

Today I went to the grocery store and made some BIG changes. I bought Silk brand milk. I got a cashew one and a almond/coconut blend, both are unsweetened. I love milk, I drink it a lot and I was extremely skeptical of these "weird" milks. But I tried both of them when I got home and I thought both tasted good! They were on sale for $3.50 which I guess is pretty good deal on this kind of milk. I also bought Miracle Whip Light (previously had been having mayo which I LOVE), also cottage cheese, wheat low carb tortillas (no more white bread sandwiches), a head of lettuce, bag of spinach, and low cal vinaigrette dressing. DF had already bought us a lot of healthy stuff (grilled chicken breasts, veggies, yogurt, etc.). I am excited about these changes I am trying especially with the milk, mayo, and bread changes.

For dinner I made a BOMB salad. Iceberg lettuce, spinach, fresh mushrooms, red sweet peppers, yellow sweet peppers, tomatoes, hard boiled eggs and jalapeno ranch. YUMMMMMMMY! The jalapeno ranch is less then half a jar left so I will finish that out and then switch to the vinaigrette which has a much lower fat content.

    Wow! Good for you! I hope you stay motivated. At this pace, you will transform yourself physically.

    Reading your post makes me want to exercise.

    That's amazing progress in only 12 days! DH and I did P90X a couple of years ago and saw great results from it, but Tony Horton annoys me Smile I love the Beachbody programs - I've also done T25, Turbofire, and am now doing ChaLEAN Extreme with some Turbofire added in for extra cardio.

    The little changes in food really add up to a lot! My downfall is carbs, I could eat pasta for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and be happy as a clam!

    Keep up the great work!

    Good job. I have always wondered about those Silk milks. Thanks for enlightening me.

    It sounds like you've made a great lifestyle change, keep up the good work! Pretty much half my milk intake is almond milk - it's actually helpful with sinus issues too

    Thanks everyone! Rob - on the Silk Milks, another bonus is since they aren't a dairy product they stay good for a looong time! The 2 I bought are both good until late June which is great cause I hate wasting food.

    Try the Silk brand yogurt. The peach flavor is really good. Also, since you are drinking Crystal Light try the strawberry lemonade. I keep one of the small bottles in my purse so when I eat out I drop some in my water! But - I like all kinds and I LOVE Hawaiian Punch flavors.

    If you get tired of SILK, try organic milk. It is pricey but tastes sooooooo good. I buy the 0% fat Organic Valley. Like SILK, the expiration date is pretty long so it never has time to go bad. Also, you should be able to find coupons for SILK.
