Well as you know, I completed the Insanity program on Saturday. A great accomplishment, but it’s time to turn the page and get ready for my next mission: The Hybrid program. Check the link to see it in-depth. This week I didn’t miss any workouts and I pushed myself farther to get the best results possible. I still have to take mini breaks during a workout, but I push myself a little more every day. I started the Hybrid program and it’s cool to do P90X again. I felt strong and look to take my body to new levels. We’ll see if I’m so optimistic after one week in the books, lol!
I would give myself a C+ this week for nutrition. I think keeping this food journal has been a great asset to me. I can review all I’ve eaten and see how they correlate to my overall results. My weekly alcohol consumption was ridiculous overall (damn you open bar!), and I had a few days where I only ate 4 meals a day. Tell tale signs of a slowing metabolism. So this week, I look to follow a stricter nutrition plan, eat 5-6 times daily, and keep the alcohol content to 1-2 drinks this week. I’m also reviewing the P90X nutrition plan where they break down your portions of Protein, carbs, and fat you should consume over the 90 days. They basically change the ratios by Month to accommodate the type of workouts you perform. I want to take all my measurements now so I have a point of reference every month.
After I completed Insanity, I weighed myself and I was 195.4. Kept that in mind as I finished the weekend and weighed myself today. Weighed in at 196.0 even. The bad news is that I fell short one pound of my average weekly weight loss goal. The good news is that I hit Milestone 1 of 4 in my weight loss goals of 10lbs officially lost! Next mile stone is 190. I also took my photos for the complete Insanity visual results and I made good gains, but as always not the gains I’m ultimately looking for. I’m harsh, but I dream BIG! Now it’s time to turn it up and reach my goal. I have 13 weeks of this hybrid schedule, and at my 1.5lb/week average, I’m projected to lose 19.5 pounds and weight in at 176.5. I’m not looking to go THAT low, so hopefully I’ll reach my milestone quicker.
