I started P90X one week ago today! I’m exactly 8 days in. I’m following the P90X workout schedule and meal plan guide.
I started doing P90X in 2009 after Natalie was born and I lost 60 lbs. And then again in 2011 after I had Haley.
However, I’m doing the LEAN workout plan this time. (I’ve done the Classic in the past.)
I consider myself skinny, but not fit, and honestly not very healthy. I have been drinking Mountain Dew on a daily basis for years… and years, and years. See, told you, not that healthy.
I’m trying to change that though. I quit smoking January 1st (again) and signed up for a Warrior Dash 5K, coming up this April.
We are going to St George Island for vacation in 54 days, and I’d like to be in better shape than I am now for the beach.
I’m trying to focus on the first 30 days for now. That’s a short-term goal I feel I can hit.
Starting Weight: 145.0
Current Weight: 140.8
Workout everyday for 1 hour
At least an hour 6 days a week, some of the workouts are longer. P90X works for me. I like having a video to follow. And one that will push me to the limit.
Drink more water, less coke
And by coke, I mean Mountain Dew. I also cut out all alcoholic beverages.
Eat high-protein, low-carb meals
You need protein to build muscle and you need carbs for energy.
I need my food. I like food. I get “hangry” if I don’t get enough food in me.
I am a LEVEL 2, based on my weight and body fat. Each square represents 1 serving.
It has been an easy transition so far. These are some satisfying low carb meals that I actually enjoy.
