Ok, so I lied.

I did have some junk food after I blogged last night. Just a little, and it was good.

Food:

coffee w/ Splenda & creamer
Bagel Thin w/ cream cheese
chicken wrap & fries from McDonald's - And I didn't even eat all of it.

Workout:

Does running up and down the stairs count? Yes? Awesome. I did stairs today.

I really don't like P90X3

I had a feeling I wouldn't like it. It's really not my style at all. I just want to lift and do Turbo Jam/Turbo Kick. And box jumps. And burpees. And jump rope. And run. And skate.

Food:

coffee w/ Splenda & creamer
omelet w/ peppers, onions, salami & cheese, turkey bacon & toast
nuts
pizza

I'm really proud of myself that I didn't go on a chocolate binge, even though I desperately wanted to.

No workout today. I'm trying to decide whether I want to lift or Turbo tomorrow.

P90X3 - Day 6 - Incinerator & Dynamix

I had a Bagel Thin with cream cheese after I blogged last night. And yes, I felt guilty.

Double workouts today (and all Fridays) because I don't have time to work out on Saturdays right now. Fortunately, it was an early dismissal day so I had time to do the workouts without feeling rushed.

Food:

coffee w/ Splenda & creamer
cheese burger & bean soup - Ugh, the freaking guilt!
Cali burger w/ fries - I went out for dinner with some co-workers. I never want to eat again.

Workout:

Incinerator is a resistance workout. I used bands. I hate using bands but I hate the cold garage even more. I have to play around with where to anchor the bands to get the right resistance and that's a pain in the butt. Dynamix was tedious but the stretches helped a bit.

P90X3 - Day 5 - Pilates X

I'm sure this will come as a shock to you, but I'm having food issues. Mainly guilt for not eating lettuce and chicken breast. I ate at work, stuff that's not healthy. I don't know why I can't get it into my head that it's okay to eat. Part of my issue is anxiety over life stuff. I'm having lots and lots of issues in my personal and work life that have my stomach in a constant knot. I either want to binge eat or not eat. I can't find a happy medium at all.

Food:

coffee w/ Splenda & creamer
egg, sausage, mini pancakes & cheesy potatoes
honey barbecue beef patty

Workout:

Pilates X...where do I start with this? I hate pilates. I hate core work. Probably because my core is weak. This workout gave me a massive headache. I'm sure it's because I'm not relaxing my neck or whatever. You know how your head hurts when you do sit ups sometimes? I need to work on that. I couldn't do half the moves properly. Fuck this shit. Give me a barbell or some Turbo Jam, please.

Erm, no, I'm not quitting P90X3. I'll be back tomorrow for The Incinerator and Dynamix (I have to double up on Fridays because I can't workout on Saturdays).

P90X3 - Day 4 - The Challenge

My legs huuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrt! I hate Tony Horton.

Food:

coffee w/ Splenda & creamer
chicken breast w/ bean soup, broccoli & coleslaw
apple & cottage cheese

Workout:

The Challenge is a push/pull workout - all pull/chin ups and push ups. 8 rounds of however many you want to do. The idea is to pick a goal for each. I did pull downs with my bands because I was too lazy to go down to the garage and freeze my ass off doing assisted pull/chin ups. My pull goal was 30 and my push goal was 15. My chest and shoulders will hurt in the morning.

P90X3 - Day 3 - X3 Yoga

My buttocks hurts today, from all the squats and lunges yesterday. And I'm cranky because a) some kid stole the piece of candy my niece left for me and b) I forgot to take a snack to work. But at least I did not have a Pop Tart (or any other junk at work).

Food:

coffee w/ Splenda & creamer
Carolina barbecue, coleslaw & baked potato
Bagel Thin w/ cream cheese

Workout:

X3 Yoga today. I needed some yoga but damn, the leg work. Some of the stretches felt great. Especially child's pose. I love that one. And corpse pose, of course!

P90X3 - Day 2 - Agility X

Two days in a row??? Whaaaaaaat???

Let me just say, I was NOT looking forward to working out today. My intention was to do it before work, but screw that. I like to sleep and drink coffee. I felt a little guilty, and even thought this was the end of the road for P90X3. Now, I'm not going to go patting myself on the back just yet. It's only been two days. I have 89 more to go before I feel like I'm back to my old workout fiend self.

Oh, and before I forget, I did not have that bagel with cream cheese last night. Yay me. I was feeling proud, and planned on having a salad for lunch. Nope. But don't worry. I was a good girl. I ate food, but appropriate portions and nothing too shit-tastic.

Food:

coffee w/ Splenda & creamer
Carolina barbecue (no bun), baked beans, coleslaw & sweet potato
"fun size" candy bar - My niece brings me one of these every day. She's a sweet heart.
apple & cottage cheese

Yes, I realize it's not that much food on paper. Lunch really filled me up. The anxiety over having to work out when I get home kills my appetite. All the water I drink during my workout kills my appetite. So the apple & cottage cheese after was pretty much all I could handle.

Workout:

Agility X sucks. Not because it's a bad workout, but because I'm fat and lazy. It's a mix of plyometrics, squats and lunges, with a few push ups thrown in. This is one workout that just does not work out well in my second-floor bedroom. I guess I'll be doing it in the garage from now on. I need room to jump, and a stable floor that doesn't knock all my shit off the shelves.
