P90X Week 3 Day 1
AVG HR for Chest + Back — 142 AVG HR for Ab Ripper X — 133 FUCK this net calorie lol SERIOUSLY. I got all my macros in, which is good, but seriouslyyyyyy. I can’t fathom the idea of eating more!@#$%#$%^&*! lmao. Chest and back! I really don’t have the time to log everything but I’m telling you guys, this was by far the hardest session I’ve ever had, and...
Explanation here and here. Find out how to calculate your caloric intake here. (The above links can be used for both individuals trying to lose fat and/or gain muscle) NET CALORIC INPUT: 1728 to 1860 I will be keeping a close eye on this, as I personally think it’s too much, though this could be my past ED talking. Either way, if I’m not seeing any progress then I’ll reduce...
Where the f@#$ have I been?
Good question, I can’t say. Maybe I can. What I will say though is that things are a little hectic, and a little scary. I’ve been in and out of different doctor’s offices for a number of consults. Without going into detail I went for a diagnostic test today, now all I can really do is hope for the best. Though my nutrition was thrown off, moreso in terms of quantity rather than...
Re: Regimen Tune-Up!
So I decided since I have the time, I might as well make a few adjustments to my regimen. I’m not upset about what my progress has been so far, but I figure, why not? Goal reminder: To get cut. Re: Workouts: In addition to the scheduled P90X workout, I’ll also be doing some form of cardio - Kenpo X, Cardio X, Running, Cycling etc. Keep my average heart rate above 160 during...
P90X Day 5 Week 2 - Rest
I know, I know, I know, it’s not on the schedule as “Rest” but let me explain: Yesterday was incredibly hectic, ergo nothing got done. Though really, I’m not worrying because I’ll consider yesterday my “rest” day and continue on with legs and back today, then Kenpo tomorrow and go straight into week 3. No biggie. This Korean agency was having auditions,...

Since starting last week I’ve lost an average of 3.5lbs/week. It isn’t even water weight because I started working out and eating right earlier than this, maybe May? But I definitely was not as diligent as I am now. Woo!

PLYOMETRICS. Shit killed me, but I still did the entire thing, even the bonus round. There’s not much to say, since it was mostly cardio-based, even though my ass and legs hurt and burned. Though I have to say I’m quite enjoying the increased firm-ness of my ass. Seriously, I can’t stop touching it when I’m standing lol. It’s ridiculous, and it needs to stop because...

WOD: P90X Day 1 Week 2!
Today was chest and back + abs. I missed Kenpo X yesterday, though I’m not beating myself up about it. Anyway, with this workout I really tried to increase my range of motion (ROM) so my reps really aren’t as much as last week. I will be totally honest, at the moment, push-ups are my ultimate weakness. However, I aspire for the day that they will be my ultimate strength. Here are my...
WOD: P90X Day 5 Week 1
LEGS AND BACK BABYYY. I really pushed myself with every lunge and squat, because I love my ass and would love to keep it perky and firm. …seriously I have a weird obsession with asses, even when I check out guys, you bet I’m looking at their ass. That is, unless they have a girl on their arm, I’m not that kind of a girl. If anything, the moment I find out a guy has a...
TOTAL INTAKE: ~1,718 cals TOTAL OUTPUT: ~1,275 cals NET INTAKE: ~443 cals “nut butter” is almond butter “toast” is rye bread, which will be soon swapped for sprouted grain bread.
WOD: P90X Day 4 Week 1
YOGA! I went to yoga today to replace yesterday since I didn’t go. According to the majority of online calculators, I torched at least 1275 calories. I do my own yoga though at a local study. As I’m a beginner, and they do a few advanced poses, which I deem too unsafe to do while I’m still a noob, I like having an instructor with me to make sure I’m doing the poses...
TOTAL INTAKE: ~1,594 TOTAL OUTPUT: ~1,014 NET INTAKE: ~714 Points: I am not eating oatmeal anymore in the morning, as it takes up SO many calories, it’s annoying. I dislike. No more. I realize it’s good for me, but it’s a piss off. Breakfast is usually my biggest meal of the day, all the other meals were between 250-300, which I think it’s okay because I feel...

Some points: Again, I went a little over than my usual, but my net calorie intake was definitely within an acceptable range, I think. There was too much bananas, but this just means I have to organize myself better. The only reason I took them as opposed to anything else, is because they’re easy to grab and carry around. Also, I was craving sugar like mad (that’s ”mother...
P90X Day 2 Week 1
PLYOMETRICS BABY!!!!! I’m so proud of myself, I really can’t even express it in words, not coherently anyway. It was/still is boiling in my house, and at first I thought, “Maybe I shouldn’t do it, it’s so hot” and blah blah blah. Then I told myself to shut the fuck up and just do it. So I put on my gear on and started. Then I said, “Okay, I’ll only...
Calorie range was just above 1, 300. I couldn’t tell you the net, but I’m definitely sure I lost more than 100cals from my workout, so net should be around 1, 200. There’s very little variety simply because I haven’t gone grocery shopping, and this is what’s in my fridge at the moment. I don’t even have any eggs, how sad is that? :(
P90X Day 1 Week 1
FINALLY, right?! Let me tell you three things first: I have never and could never in the past do one decent “real” push-up (when I say “real” I mean without my knees), so I did my best in terms of depth and range of motion. So no laughing at my stats girls and guys, I’m a push-up noob. I pushed myself harder in the first round than I thought I did, so I couldn’t finish Ab Ripper ex. I got...
