P90X2 Update

Well this week marked the last week in phase I of X2. I am so pleased with my progress and I am looking forward to the second phase of the program. I have read that the second phase is where you see the largest physical transformations ... so I am eager and ready. I will take end of phase I pics but I will not be sharing the transformation pictures until the end of the program. I have to admit that now that my Mom has not been joining me for my morning workout that I have been finding it more difficult to stay motivated :( I am not sure if she is planning on joining me in phase II or not... but I am going to keep pushing play, for sure!

My diet was going SO WELL! I lost 9.2 pounds in the first two weeks only to reach TOM and gain everything back... I will be weighing in again Friday and will update if I lost anything (again). My daughter's Sweet 16 made my diet take a beating too... too busy with no time to plan and the result was that I ate the wrong things and too much of them. Then I ate some leftovers for a few days and now I am back on track and logging all my food and exercise.

As for the exercise plan, I missed Yoga last week because of the party and I did not make up for it. I am currently one day behind for this week but I think that I will do Yoga after B&P on Friday to keep my weekends open for family activities. I like to sleep in on Saturday and Sunday so this schedule works best for me. I am still sore all over but not as much as I was with P90X... not even close! I am sure that phase II will change all of that :)

So, the details are:

Balance and Power:
Calories - 422
Avg HR - 121
Max HR - 154

Calories - 410
Avg HR - 126
Max HR - 161

Calories - 494
Avg HR - 125
Max HR - 166

Tomorrow morning is Total Body and ARX... probably my favorite of all the workouts :)

Leaving you with a picture following Plyocide this morning :P

The abdominal muscle is a small muscle group and when it is isolated it doesn't require a lot of effort to contract the abs. You can work on toning abdominal muscles while working your whole body and getting a better fat burning workout by adding the right abdominal exercise.
