Weekly Update IX

Exercise Plan

It’s the tail end of the Recovery Week and the start of Phase 3 of P90x Doubles. I felt a bit under the weather and took a 3 day break…sigh. Another delay in completing the final phase of P90X, but hopefully it will be the last. Instead of doing cardio exercises three times a week, it’s being bumped to four days a week. So I’ll be alternating between Plyometrics and Cardio X for my cardio workouts so I don’t overwork my body.

  • Core Synergistics: Finished it in its entirety but it still feels difficult to complete.
  • 3 Day Break…I don’t remember how this happened!
  • Yoga X: I’m getting better at the Right Angle Pose, Twisting Half Moon, Wheel, Crane, and other more advanced poses. Surprisingly, the yoga belly section is getting easier and I can actually feel my abs “engaging.” I like it.
  • 1 Day Break
  • Plyometrics: It’s been challenging completing all the exercises, but it was done. I got to finish Phase 3 strong, so no more breaks!

Food Plan

Made a pact to avoid eating at chain restaurants after spending a dinner a California Pizza Kitchen, CPK.

I’ve been eating pretty sporadically but now, I’ve been planning meals and made some great meals for the next week.
