Rest day Wednesday (which I now regret at the very least not having done yoga or stretching), last night was TF Fire 30, Stretch 10 and P90X Shoulders and Arms.

Took measurements. Down half an inch on the arms, and another half inch on my waist. I'm amazed about the arms, but I am not just crediting the punches and such in TurboFire but P90X as well. However, I WILL say I'm amazed how much of TF does work out your entire body. I actually was sore in my upper arms and kept wondering why.

Tonight is day five of TF, HIIT 55 and Stretch 10, plus dancing. Woo!

Haven't posted here in a bit! I came down with a nasty sinus infection which took me out of my workout routine for a little over a month. Back on track these days, and restarted TurboFire. I have been occasionally tacking on P90X exercises and I use weighted gloves when I work out to the various cardio routines in TF.

I did Core 20, Stretch 40 on Sun and still am feeling it in my abs! Happily in a two piece bathing suit and got to wear a nice pair of short shorts. Never thought I'd be able to wear those. :D

Thanks to travel and working late, I redid week two of the program. Almost done with it, then to week 3. After week 3 it's ALL NEW EXERCISES!!

I'm going to try to add on P90X and Brazil Butt Lift exercises on the days when the workouts are less than an hour long. This is of course dependent upon what can be my crazy schedule. I'll be using Chest and Shoulders, and Legs and Back from P90X and from Brazil Butt Lift, High and Tight and Tummy Tuck. Anyone who's done Tummy Tuck knows it even beats the pants off of Ab Ripper X, and that's no lie. It's the most challenging core workout program I've ever done and it's what gave me my ab definition last year for the first time in my life.

I've already been told I look like I lost weight, and I know as of a few weeks ago I was down eight pounds. Ideally, I'd like to lose about 17-22 more, but what will be the indicator will be my clothing. I don't care WHAT the number on the scale says as long as I can fit into all of my clothing. If I'm five pounds higher than I used to be but everything fits, that's muscle baby, and I won't sweat it...no pun intended. XD

Also, I have biceps. Like, defined biceps. I never had that before. My triceps, upper thighs, and glutes still need some more love but that's being an hourglass for you.

It's been seriously busy on my end, trying to fit in extra workouts has been hard. I'm happy just to get the basic ones done!

Also, I swear by using weighted gloves. <3

Fire 45 EZ on Sat, 55 EZ on Sun. Completely missed Fri's workout due to extreme heat coupled with social plans, I wasn't home until past midnight and working out then is well, kinda crazy.

Today's my fav, Fire 45. I have learned to embrace the air jacks. :D

Did Brazil Butt Lift's Tummy Tuck and High and Tight the other day, abs are STILL sore...wow.

This morning did TF's Sculpt 30, good workout for shoulders which is what I BADLY needed.

At some point I'll start taking pics again. I'm a long way from where I want to be and up 10 lbs since last summer, and I greatly desire to ditch those plus an additional 5-10. But the inches are coming off and that lovely circle is evident in my abs. Woo.

Ugh, it's been a while since I updated!

Okay, weight loss goals: more or less made them! Rest will be carving out lean muscle. I plan to start a round of P90X in about a week or so, then tune into P90X2 when it comes out. Yes, I have it preordered :D

If you’ve ever researched much into the science behind workout systems, you probably know that nutrition plays an extremely important role in recovery and improvement. After all, we don’t get more fit while doing workouts; it is only after the body rebuilds our muscles bigger and stronger that we reap the benefits of our efforts. Studies by the Journal of Exercise Physiology Online have shown that getting the proper mix of nutrients after a workout can greatly aid recovery. Simply put, if you aren’t refueling your body soon after a workout, you probably aren’t appreciating the full rewards of your workout.

While the importance of post-workout nutrition is clear, just what constitutes nutrition is not. The products on the market range from sugary sports drinks with no protein to thick, gritty, awful tasting protein shakes. What is the proper mix of carbs to protein? And what about fat? How about electrolytes? Such questions are hard to answer, since just about everyone you ask will give a different answer. It becomes even more difficult when you’re trying to lose weight, as so many exercisers are. Many shakes and drinks are very high in calories and sugar, and leave users feeling bloated. The ones that aren’t tend to taste pretty bad and lack the necessary nutrients for recovery.

Um...okay...? I'm not sure why you're posting this here. Are you replying to the right thread?

I start one full round of classic P90X today with the intent of jjumping onto P90X2. I've already preordered it, and absolutely can't wait for it to show up.

Re: P90X2 - if people here want it, buy it from me and you get free shipping, two free workouts, don't pay until it ships in Dec, plus you support your fellow forum gal! Link is here: http://www.TeaAddictedGeek.com

Aaaanyhow...the reason why I'm switching over is because I'm all of six pounds away from my goal (and in case people were wondering, being six pounds away means I've dropped twenty-four pounds). Six. That's it. I haven't seen this weight in five years. I'm wearing jeans and other clothes I haven't worn in that long, either. It's awesome! So now here I am, weighing in at 126...and I want more awesome, lean muscle. I look WAY healthier at this weight than I did then, but I want more. More. Yes! And that's why I signed up for this lovely place to begin with.

I've also decided I want to eventually transition out of software engineering and get into fitness training and coaching full time in addition to my writing.

So! Today, Chest & Back and Ab Ripper X, tomorrow the world! MWAHAHAHAHA

Did Chest and Back, Ab Ripper X. Happy to say I could manage the first three of the classic pushups on my toes, NEVER could do that before. I've lost a bit of arm/chest strength but I'll get that back, too. Using 12 lbs instead of 15 and 15 instead of 20 isn't the end of the world, after all.

Tomorrow is Plyometrics. I'm scared. O_O

Did Plyometrics today and can I say, wow. Wow. Wow. Still sore from yesterday.

In other news, VegaSport's new chocolate saviseed protein bar is so fantastically delicious it doesn't taste like a health food thing. I'm addicted. I need to hide the box from myself or I'll eat everything in there...
