Kim's Journal

#1 Postby kimberly » Sat Dec 31, 2011 7:06 pm

OK, for some reason, reading and following directions is not my strong point. I still can't figure out how to put a pic of me on here.. I also can't figure where I should submit the trainer that I want, and I'm not really sure what I am supposed to be writing here.
Today I did Plyo X2. I started P90X2 two weeks ago, this is my 3rd week, so I am following the workout plan on there. My goal is to get stronger, to be able to do unassisted pull ups, crow (or crane) and maybe a handstand. I just became vegan about 3 months ago, and I am learning along the way.
My other goals are to get the lower half of my body better developed. I have issues with my knees, when doing lunges, they pop like a Barbie Doll. I can do squats, but since I workout at home,. my equipment is pretty limited. The new P90X has a ton of core and stability workouts, which I am grateful for since those are also areas that I am lacking in.
I am looking forward to making myself into a better me for 2012!!

Hi Kimberly! My name is Bridget.

I also have knee issues so am learning to modify exercises.
And I also have issues with the directions. I haven't figured out how to upload a pic either :?:

As far as content - As I understand, what you posted if fine.

Oh, and to "Sign-up" we did have to send an email. I did that but haven' heard anything else... Maybe tomorrow.

Good luck!

Hi Bridget,
Nice to meet you, I did send the email a few weeks ago, but I am not sure if I was supposed to send another lol.
Good luck to you as well, and Happy New Year!

As usual Jesse, you are awesome! I was really wondering about the trainers, I think it said we would be assigned trainers, or we had to choose a trainer.

Today I started with pull ups this morning, I have just started using a pull up assist, the weight I'm pulling is about 85 lbs, I'm hoping to eventually get rid of the assist. I did 10 pull ups, and 10 chin ups.
Tonight I did Total Body X2 from P90X2, I use 20's on all the exercises in the series. I try to do at least 12 reps of each exercise. I'm not sure of all the exercises, I would have to check the dvd, but the workout itself runs about 40 minutes, with a warm up and cool down, about 60 min. I sometimes stop the dvd so I can try to get in more reps.
I ate a salad that was in a 10 cup bowl, consisted of a whole avocado, organic spring salad and spinach salad, a tablespoon of hummus, garlic, and about 5 or 6 mushrooms.
I ate about 15 organic pretzel sticks with about a tablespoon of peanut butter.
I ate a handful of dried pineapple.
I ate a cup of sauteed spinach (with garlic) and brown rice.
I am about to eat a mango.
I am out of protein powder, haven't had it in about a month, have to go get more.
I'm exhausted from the workout because it uses weights and a stability ball OUCH!!
I drank about 70 oz of water.
I always drink WAAAYYY too much coffee, about a pot with organic soy milk (vanilla) and waaayyy too much sugar!

Looks like you figured out the photo!

Nice back! Awesome stuff!

We've been working around the clock the past few weeks to get the program going. Things kept getting updated by the day as new info came in, so I apologize for the confusion. We're working to streamline things for our Summer Shape-Up Challenge and this same one next year.

It's all coming together though.

We matched up as many people with trainers as we could with the 15 trainers we have, but we got way more emails than anticipated and we're still figuring out a smooth way to manage it all :)

Thanks so much for being on here!

Looking forward to watching your progress.

All the very best and Happy New Year!

-Robert

Ooo. I didn't know there was a p90x2. I did the original (with doubles) about a year ago..Though I started to get a bit bored by the end of it, I still use a chunk of the workouts and the program was good enough to make me excited to try p90x2 :)

Good luck with it! (& thanks for mentioning it)

Today (actually it was Tuesday into Wednesday wee hours :)) I did P90X2 Yoga, it runs about an hour. Much faster paced than the original Yoga X. I also did about 40 minutes of Shaun T's Rockin Body, I guess it's cardio but being that it is so cold here, I didn't really sweat lol. I walked much les than usual, I usually walk between 4-6 miles a day, today I only did about 2 because once again it is too cold!
I ate (breakfast/lunch) spinach, dark cherries, almond milk, and raw cacao smoothie.
I ate about 25 wasabi almonds (I can eat an entire can no kidding.. LOVE)
I ate a salad that was in a 10 cup container and consisted of spinach & spring mix, 3/4 of an avocado, and about 6 mushrooms. Garlic.
I ate two bananas with about 2 teaspoons of peanut butter on each.
I drank about 70 oz of water..

I sent you an email a few hours ago...Once you begin tracking your macros, I can get a better feel for where you are with your nutrition and how it's affecting your weight. So keep track of that, too.

Looking forward to helping you reach your goals....By the way, your back looks amazing! :D
