I didn’t let the birthday week festivities deter me from the workout. I couldn’t get all 7 days (took a day off), but I was able to complete the workouts. I got all 3 ab workouts in barely, but I need to concentrate more. I had a CRAZY week to say the least, from running around NYC to paying off bills to partying etc. Ridiculous! I also wanted to go super hard this Phase of the Hybrid workout because I always seem to lose gains in this phase of P90X, so I wanted to change that. This week coming up is recovery, which is well needed! I’m making sure to do all seven days and finish off phase 2 in style!
My body officially hates me for the debauchery that ensued from Thursday – Saturday. Shots, drinks, comfort food O my! Kinda took a back seat the last few days of the week. I tell you that I’m far from perfect with nutrition and I outline all missteps and successes to let you know this is real. You have to be in tune with your body. I’m always trying to figure out what foods help me the best and which ones hurt. Some people digest and synthesize foods better, some genetically get away with more. My body is the type that if I sat on my @ss and ate bad food daily, I’d gain weight quick. I’m not trying to end up with the same black ailments, and want to keep my streak of great health alive!
My major roadblock with my nutrition plan is eating too many calories as my last meal. I still struggle with this, as I try to play catchup when I don’t eat enough earlier in the day. I also have to get back in the habit of cooking again, took a few weeks off of that. Don’t want to lose any gains so I gotta get back at it!
The results are in and I weigh-in at 188.8 lbs. A 0.4 difference from last week. A small loss. Usually when I gain small that either means that I wasn’t eating right, or my body just decided to chill on the weight loss this week. My waist is still at 33 which is cool. I set my new milestone at 185, so maybe I can get there in 2 weeks. I’m more concerned bout body composition, but you already know that. I have to make sure I’m not hitting a plateau, so I’m gonna tweak a few things and wait to see the results.
1) Get better and get over sickness – Done
2)Follow the taper portion of the plan well, and if you eat out, eat smart (wait for it…) – Failed. Gotta do better
3) No missed workouts INCLUDING Abs – yup!
Stop eating calories heavy at night
