P90X: Phase Two Thoughts
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!
