So I thought it would be a good idea to throw Hydroxycut in to the mix and assumed it would help me reach my goal that much sooner but I was beyond wrong. That stuff isn’t for everyone and I’m one of those people it isn’t for. I wasn’t overly excited with the side effects and more so than anything it handicapped me and my ability.
The extreme bursts of energy that lasted through the day and caused me to eat an excessive amount left me struggling to focus and get through the end of the day. I wasn’t able to do my night workouts and getting up in the morning was even worse so I have been at a complete standstill here.
Rather than losing the days I am picking up with Yoga X, where I left off.
This was back on 04/20 but I haven’t had a chance to update so here it is.
Everything is on the up & up and I’m doing well, these weight lifting exercises seem to be getting easier but I have a feeling after the start of Phase 2 that will change.
So this was the last day of Plyometrics until May 3rd… I just don’t know how I’ll cope…
This is one of those love/hate situations. I really love the burn this gives and the hardcore cardio for but now I’ve got to take a break for a week and a half before I do it again which hopefully won’t be too horrible.
Everything’s definitely getting easier… this I don’t think really gets easy per se but the body gets used to it and can handle the intensity. I wasn’t super exhausted like the last 2 weeks. The only thing that concerns me that if it’s getting easier then maybe I’m not doing something right or I’m not getting the same results?
Starting Phase 2 should answer my questions..
I went in to this strong, the rest day did help though I’m still nursing a runny nose which I don’t think is going to go away until I take a few days off which isn’t going to happen. Maybe it will subside during next weeks rest.
Generally I do the workouts with the boys and will pause more frequently but this was my first run through non-stop which was definitely different and good, the burn was there and great. The only thing I struggled substantially with was the diamond pushups. After finishing the hour I felt extremely nausious and wasn’t so sure about Ab Ripper X.
I rested for about 15 minutes, had a sip of water and jumped in to Ab Ripper X and I’m so glad I did. The nausea went away and I finished 20 shy of the total 349 reps done throughout the workout. 329 definitely worked for me but I’m going to push harder next time, I don’t feel the burn so much today.
Well since I was sick for 2 days I really didn’t want to take this rest day but I did just to follow the program and not over do it. Week 3 then rest!
So still a little sick but I felt good enough to jump back in to things… I was getting disappointed that I was off for so long. Last night was good, I still didn’t feel at peak but I felt better than I did the other night. Tonight’s X Stretch and Rest but I’m gonna throw Ab Ripper X in and do the X Stretch.
So I was hoping I’d be doing better today but yesterday felt like I had a touch of the stomach flu which has carried over today. Hopefully I’ll get this out of my system by tomorrow. This sucks!
After the legs and back workout I figured it wasn’t worth it to struggle through kenpo so I drank some theraflu and rested. I’m going to take tonight off also and jump back in tomorrow. I feel significantly better today than I did last night so that’s promising.
I’m continuing the schedule as I should just pushing back 2 days, I don’t want to miss the exercise so it’s going to be P92X.
New finish date will be 07/03/2009.
Well I figured taking a day off I’d be okay. Earlier in the day we went to the park and played a little baseball then went for a swim. I figured I was just a little tired from that and did the Legs & Back. Half way through I realized I definitely wasn’t any better than Friday. I pushed through the hour but did not do the Ab Ripper X again.
I’m going to have to lay off the program for a couple days to get better. I don’t want to make things worse.
Alright so now I really suck! I spent most all Saturday sleeping off the sickness and I figured since it was Yoga there wasn’t a point in trying to kill myself so I skipped it again.
