Week 1 P90X Lean DONE

Sort of…

Tonight is X-Stretch (last night of week 1) and I cannot wait.  I am tired today from Kenpo last night (and I got enough sleep!) so a nice stretch sounds great.

I could NOT do Legs and Back on Sat.  Ok, I could do Back but not Legs.  My knee cannot withstand that workout.  So my coach suggested Chest and Back instead.  I am going to do that for the next two weeks and see how that goes, hopefully well.

I am struggling a little bit with the scale numbers this week.  I have a feeling I will not have lost much.  I hope that it is because I am making muscles, but it still scares me.  I really need to lose fat so badly.  I am being sure to use my measurements as well as the scale so I don’t freak out so much if the scale doesn’t move one week.  I know per my bugg I have maintained enough of a deficit to lose 3 pounds of body fat, but because I can tell I am building muscle (things are definitely growing and getting tighter) I may not see a huge reflection in the numbers.  I need the muscle to increase my metabolism so I know this is still a step forward in my journey.

I am also using progress pics and am going to take them every week.  This will help me mentally as well. There are people on the Bodybugg site losing 30 pounds a month like on The Biggest Loser and I have to remind myself that I need to lose at a healthy rate and within my capabilities.  As long as I do my best and as Tony says bring the best to the workout with my fitness level THAT DAY then I will still be successful.

I really wanted to be at my goal on Tuesday and will continue attacking cardio today to try to do that, but I will not be upset if I am not there yet as long as I am doing my best and not cheating.  I have not been, so I feel really good.

Today is a worried day, so I want to blog about it so I can learn from this experience and when I look back have a clear picture of where I was at for all the stages of this journey to fitness.  I will succeed, I just have to keep working.

I can tell a difference in my fitness in just one week.  I am thrilled.  I also started playing around with the other Turbo Jam Cardio options and love them as well.   I did Fat Blaster on Sunday AM (30 min, HIIT) and loved it.  I can see myself adding that here and there to try to increase my fat loss.

I need to hit a deficit today and then hop on the scale and take my measurements and photos tomorrow and I will know how I did.  I’ll post it, no worries.
