Sorry, with me blogging usually the day after I have kind of messed up the routine to day count. Day 8 is actually last night and I have started the program over again... well Phase 1 - week 1, but now is week two. I am looking at my results from the first day and yes there is improvement as well knowing that I was able to do more pushup and even raise the weight by 5 pounds as well as increase the weight machine as the substitute to the pull up bar. Although, I think the next time I will attempt the pull up bar in the doorway. If the improvement is/was little I am sure I am going to be even better in 8 days once I do this for a third time. I may have to buy a 30 weight barbell as well. since the 25 is the highest I have at home at the moment. The Dive Bomber push up still sucked, but at least I was able to do a few cleanly and not fail. As I struggled I went to the knees and still tried doing and I think I did a pretty damn good job.
I did take a couple/few days off once more. Its the weekend thing mentality. I need to break that so I am going to power through a not take a break.
What I have noticed is that I am not really documentating my food intake. For example, today I had strawberries for Breakfast, Whey protein shake for mid morning snack. Then, lunch. I had beef quesadilla (with some cheese, tomatoes, beef - and little bit of salsa. I only had 3 so there is one left. Then, with the meal I got a fountain drink. And I still did not have coke, but I did choose....Fuze Unsweeten Ice tea. I checked the web and its says 15 calories. I can not find a straight answer, but I think there was caffeine so if so that is my first intake of caffeine in 2 weeks. I am still Coca-Cola Free. I just wish I did not have caffeine. I think I got jittery, but then again it could have been to low sugar. But I really do not know. I have a feeling it was the caffeine that caused me to feel weird earlier today.
So, that was about it for food. Again. I am not writing the foods down, but perhaps I should. I know I am following the schedule as well as the food that I can eat currently. I will evaluate this week and see. I am taking pictures every day still so that is good for me. I do get on the scale every day as well to see the weight. Today I was at 143/144 so it looks like I kind of slowed down, but then again I did take another short break. We will see. I know I am losing weight in the mid section. I can wear some old pants that I have not worn for about 6 months now =) Woo hoo.
Well, while at lunch I surfed the web and was looking at some P90X blogs. What I noticed that most were incompete. As my previous times doing the P90X blog. Interesting. I think it is interesting in the beginning, but then I think it was for me no time to blog. I am going to attempt to blog each day. Really I want to. Even if I am beat. I need to do this for me, but as well as other to see progress and someone who did document and complete the P90X program.
Alright Readers, Time is late so I need to get to bed so I can get some rest and feel the soreness from the harder workout this time around
until the next time
