Diet is going really well and I will be taking a new approach that I will disclose after a 3 day trial. Wish me luck. God Bless. Bo. P.S. Expect the pic posting to resume shortly. :D

Day 9

Day 9

Today was the second round of P90x Plyometrics and it was...........AMAZING! Amazingly challenging that is. I was literally drenched in sweat by the end of the workout. But again, I noticed that I had even more endurance than I had when I previously did the workout. It is those kind of results that make you want to push for even better results. I believe that by the time I am finished with the 90 days, that I will look back and see how much I have improved and be proud of myself. On a sadder note, the US was knocked out today, but hey 4 years we get another shot. It was hard to keep clean eating today, I did snack a little but not to the point where I would feel like I went off the wagon. Still determined to push myself even harder now. Check out the pics. The ones from Day 8 were taken this morning Day 9 this evening, since a camera was not available last evening. Leave a comment if you like, and God bless. :D

Day 8

Day 8 weight: 230.8

Day 8 was the beginning of the 2nd week of P90x. So it was a chest and back workout again. The cool thing is., I could do almost double what I did my first day. Whether it be the muscle I gained or the weight I lost, maybe just my mindset changing, I did 2ce as well. The afternoon was spent with my girl ffriend, and then driving all over Florida with some friends. Diet is going a lot better today, and I hope it stays that way. Sorry there are no pictures today, I have some, just didn't upload, I think I will put them on computer tomorrow morning, and then when I post tomorrow evening I will update the blog. Have a good night, God Bless.

Day 7

Day 7 weight: 229.8

Today was a nice day for me to relax. Didn't have P90x or BJJ so it was a very mellow day. I made sure I didn't loaf around though. I was able to enjoy a nice dinner with Stephanie, AND I was able to go fishing. So all and all pretty much one of the most relaxing days ever. I'm going to need it too, seeing as how tomorrow we jump right back into the scheduled workouts. Pray for me to do well. Check out the pics! Overall week 1 weight loss: 7.2 lbs!

Day 6

Day 6 weight: 230 lb

Exhausted but happy. Two words I don't usually use in the same sentence. Today's P90x workout was probably the most fun yet Kenpo X! Kenpo is a martial arts, which is something I'm used to doing, especially with the jiu-jitsu. Your moving and grooving the whole time and the workout is over before you know it. It is a good cardio workout. I also went to BJJ (brazilian jiu-jitsu) tonight, and had a blast. I was lucky enough to go against one of the best people at the school who had me rolling around like a monkey fighting a tiger. Needless to say I didn't win. But one of the fun things about BJJ is that it isn't necessarily about just making people tap out. A lot of the fun is just transitioning your body to a more advantageous position. Moving your body to a new position is called a "sweep" and it is what I tried to focus on today. I got 1 or 2 nice ones, which I'm proud of. Diet went well, no junk food. I gained .6 lb, which true your weight can fluctuate, but also I ate more yesterday than I normally would. So you live and learn, and I learned to stay true to my diet! So check out the pics, leave a comment, and God Bless. :D

Day 5

Day 5 weight: 229.4

Today I got to work on my legs and my back. I think legs are probably my strong point in the workout. One thing I really enjoy about P90x is the motto "do your best, and forget the rest!". It really sums up how the workout shows results. You do the best you can do, you don't let the numbers get in your head, and if you genuinely push yourself you will succeed. Another merit is the modification they show you how to do. For instance I currently struggle with pull-ups. Pull-ups have got to be one of the hardest things to do on the planet. Right up there with child birth, and watching professional curling. Even some people who are in great shape can not do a lot of pull-ups. However, the program which uses pull-ups shows you how to modify in order to build the muscle so that you CAN do them. The whole mindset of getting the word "can't" out of your dictionary and replacing it with "I currently struggle with" motivates you, as you sweat through the workout with the other participants. Went to mother's today, so i wasn't able to make my 1:30 jiujitsu, however, I'm sure class tomorrow will still kick my tail. I'm liking taking these pics of myself everyday, I think after day 90 I'm going to put them all in a video on the blog so you can see the transformation in about 2 minutes. However, the progress and pics are still to come, so check em out each day! God Bless. :D
