Whoops. I accidentally deleted a couple of comments this morning. I apologize. I did get to read them first, and thank you.
Yesterday was day 2 of my revisiting P90x. I did about 30 minutes of the cardiox video and then swam. Those videos continue to be challenging, interesting and effective. Between back and legs on Monday and yesterdays cardio video, I can already feel a difference, if not in my body, certainly in my brain. Today is a weight training day again-upper body work and ab ripper x, which I would like to do at least part of 3 times a week. I realized yesterday, that having Kyle home last year and watching him do so well with this program helped inspire me greatly. I don’t seem to have quite the same inspiration without him here, but I am digging deep because I know how effective it was!
I really liked last night’s episode of Losing It. I felt that this episode was pretty realistic. The mom, Amy, lost 17 pounds and the dad, Todd, lost about 36 pounds, both in 6 weeks. That put Amy right in the “healthy weight loss” numbers (average 2.5 pounds a week). Todd had to lose about 6 pounds a week, but at 300 pounds, that makes sense! IF Amy is really able to stay away from cigarettes, than that was a major, major accomplishment and life saver…for her and her girls. I found this episode to be a little less focused on Jillian which was refreshing. I loved to see Jillian take Amy to someone else’s yoga class and loved how much Amy seemed to “flow” there. She looked really pretty when Jillian came back after 6 weeks, and somehow I feel that on a show called Losing It, Amy “found” it.
Keep searching for whatever it is you need to find. Keep in mind, it’s probably right there where you are.
