P90X update and Change

I would never have thought I would be working out 6 days a week for such a long period.  It has now been 38 days of this type of routine.  Did you see that?? 38 Days!!!! WOW!!!!  I have seen some weight loss, in fact about 6.7 pounds disappeared in the first 30 days.  (That makes my total 34.6….it’s a been a slow journey, with lots of ups and downs.)!!!! I am happy with that number, but yet I feel a little frustrated. ….Its 6 days a week people!!!  Where’s the burn?? I want more!!!! The days that I do the strength videos and yoga I don’t burn much and the time commitment makes it very hard for me to get in any runs or other cardio. Despite some frustrations, I am pleased to say I can now do a wide leg sit-up, even more than 1.  They are not pretty!!  I am amazed that I was able to do that within the first 30 days.   

I started P90X before school started in hopes that I would get the routine down and keep up with it.  When school started, I found that the workout times were increasing my stress level.  I work part time, my oldest has homework, both kids are in activities, plus all the jobs to run the home, and I have been overwhelmed.  I started researching and found out that Jillian Michaels Body Revolution was 30 minutes, and I could add in a 30 minute cardio DVD if I wanted.  I loved this idea, I could then add in more runs too.  So  on Day 36 I began my new 90 day workout program.  I LOVE it!  The pace is fast and fun.  My calorie burn has been in the 400s and today was 783.  I did 2 cardio workouts!!!  The JMBR and kickboxing. 

Looking forward to the weigh in this week!!!
