P90X: Phase Two Thoughts

18 May

I started week 2 of Phase Two this week and so far I’m not sure how I feel about it.  Basically, you swap out Arms & Shoulders for Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, and everything else is the same for the most part.  I like that I’m working my triceps, because the jiggle isn’t gonna go away on it’s own, however I’m not too interested in working my chest too much.  I feel that may be something guys are more interested in then women looking to tone up and look a bit more svelte.  It wasn’t a bad workout though, I did find it challenging, in a good way.

Truth be told though, I need to really kick it up a notch because I am starting to feel myself slacking off a bit during my workouts.  A lot of time I’m working out while dinner is in the oven and I’ve gotten bad about PAUSING the workout to check dinner, throw x in, etc. and just letting the DVD run, thus taking a few minutes off of my workout.  Bad, Angie.  Bad!

With that in mind however, I have lost 2 pounds and though I haven’t lost any dress sizes, I do feel less bloated and like I have more energy.  Now, imagine if I wasn’t slightly cheating the program where I’d be?!  I have a new goal that I feel like if I write it on here I’ll be more inclined to stick with it.  Here it goes:

GOAL – Strive to workout 6-days a week, ideally using the P90X program as outlined here.  When working out, don’t cheat.  If I have to stop for dinner prep, PAUSE the DVD, or do so during a break.  If I know in advance I won’t have 50-60 minutes to workout, stick to the treadmill in our basement, or do a 30-Day-Shred workout.  It’s at least something!

I’ll be back next week with more!

    You can do it! I keep my motivation up by thinking of WHY I'm working out in the first place–the body and healthy lifestyle is what I'm after!As far as working your chest, it really will make a difference. You'll see it in your back, abs, and obliques. Plus, it gives the girls a little more lift. Who wouldn't love that?!?

    Eh, my girls are already large enough that it makes finding shirts hard, but maybe if I tone the area around it won't be so difficult! That would certainly be nice!
