Back on the bandwagon

OK, enough of the semi-committing to stuff - I am back on task 100%. We have decided on the dates that we will be heading back to Disney and I have nine months to get back into shape (although, I can't really remember ever being IN SHAPE, at least not the shape that I aspire to be in at this stage of my life). ANyway, I am back on the P90x schedule and continuing the B210K running as a double. I am really learning to love running... I hate to share that time with anyone (at this stage) because it is the one hour that I get for me! Call me selfish but I love my running time... no one demanding anything of me... just me, my tunes and my heart racing, i LOVE it.

So, last night I did P90x Chest and Back... I have to say that the workout that Mr. Wonderful has made for us is much harder than Tony's. I felt so strong last night doing this workout because of all the weights we have been lifting... it was a great feeling. Burned 452 calories doing the following:

1. Standard Push-Ups: 15/15
2. Wide Front Pull-Ups: 8/8 @ 90 pounds
3. Military Push-Ups: 15/15
4. Reverse Grip Chin-Ups: 8/8 @ 90 pounds
5. Wide Fly Push-Ups: 15/15
6. Closed Grip Overhand Pull-Ups: 8/8 @ 90 pounds
7. Decline Push-Ups: 10/10
8. Heavy Pants: 10/10 with 25lb dumbbells
9. Diamond Push-Ups: 10/10
10. Lawnmowers: 10/10 with 25lb dumbbells
11. Dive Bomber Push-Ups: 10/10
12. Back Flys: 10/10 with 15lb dumbbells

I am looking forward to this round of the X and more committed than ever. I know that the running will compliment the schedule and it was obvious to me that my endurance has improved a lot. I am going to get my run in at 3h30 today and then Plyo tonight with Mr. Wonderful. It feels good to be back!

Also, I am using the Lean Body protien shakes for a meal replacement at lunch... subbed out my Syntha 6. Last night for supper I made the Clean Eating Coconut Thai Shrimp ... it was scrumptious and only 338 calories!! Definitely going to make that again.

I will leave you with a photo of me sweating it out following my workout (just because I know how much you all like photos) ... make it a great day!

Wow..that is quite the workout!!! I love it!! Good for you for totally committing--high 5!

We are going to disney in the fall & that is one of my goals to look & more importantly feel good while I am there..I think I am right the track.

BTW..I can't even imagine running for a hour-I have been trying off & on when my shins can handle it & at the most I can hit 15 minutes..so your my inspiration that I can try and keep at it :)

Have a great day!
