Hmmmm... I need to get busy!

As you know, I officially started p90X on the 9th, and while I rocked day 1(if I do say so myself) yesterday wasn't so hot. I already decided that I would need to work my way up to Pylo so I substituted with Hip Hop Abs. Now Pylo isn't extremely difficult and I have done it previously but the problem is that it tends to take a toll on my knees. When I did it before I did it using my trampoline and it did make it more bearable for me so that is always an option when I decide to work it into my routine.

Anyhoo, what I really wanted to talk about was yesterday. I had company and you all know that when company comes, it can throw your entire routine out of wack. I'm normally a morning person, have been that way all of my life, so I low that If I don't get my workout in early then it won't get done. Well yesterday, I watched the morning hours just tick by and I still hadn't gotten anything done. My mind started working and making up all kinds of excuses and reasons for me to not work out. I'll just work out on the weekend. I said I would only work out 3 days a week so missing this one day is no big deal. I'll do double tomorrow and yada yada yada. I really had it in my heart that I wouldn't work out but deep down I know that I needed to. Hell It was only day 2 for me and I didn't want to quit tat early so I dug deep within myself and somehow mustered up the energy and determination to pop in my HHA( yeah, I know hard work lol) and get my behind up and moving. Once I got started it really was fun and I also realized that working out in the evening isn't as bad as I thought. Granted, it will take a lot for me to get moving once I'm home and settled in but an occasional evening workout is totally feasible if my mind decided to co-operate.

Eating is a whole 'nother story so I'll save that for another day.


It's amazing how much difference a few weeks hiatus can make....and I don't mean that in a good way. I did my 30 day shred yesterday and not only was I more winded than usual but I had to take breaks and modify a few things. I was working out consistently for either 2 or 3 weeks up until the 13 or 14 of December. From then until yesterday I did nothing. (well I did workout one day in between) Anyway Before the break I was still huffing and puffing but I could at least get through the workout but dang. Yesterday I was disappointed in myself.

On another note, I logged my meals yesterday(steal have a few more things to enter) and My eating is about a C on a scale of A to F. I figured that as long as I stay within my alotted calories and ate semi clean, I'm good but that is proving not to be true as well. I also tried to stay within my alotted fat, protein and carb range. I have to go over my entires to see what's going on with that. I know I will have a cheat meal or a cheat day and if it's going to make a huge differnce in my eating for day, I'm screwed already . lol

Anyway, I'm going to try to do better today, I know part of the problem is that I didn't eat all of my allotted calories yesterday so i have to work on that.

Soon to Be Back On My Grind

As I probably mentioned, I had an appointment with a Mac Genius and he confirmed what I already knew. My hard drive crashed and I lost everything, EVERYTHING! I'm most upset about losing my photos which I tend to delete from my camera once uploaded.
I did have a few on another drive so that's good. I have truly learned my lesson. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Before I left, I was going to by an external drive to back up my system but figured it could wait until I got back from my trip. Little did I know my mac would would be dropped at the airport. Anyway, I was able to get the majority of my programs back and I also made sure to back them up this time. Now I'm ready to fully concentrate on getting back in shape

To lose 60 lbs of body fat (which would put me at about 155)
To Gain Muscle
Be Rid of Back Fat forever
Get reacwuainted with my collabones(clavicles as my mom likes to say)
See some semblance of abs (doesn't have to be a six pack, hell I'll take a 2 pack)
have a defined waistline

Short term goals
Work out at least 3 days a week
Log my meals
Stay off the scale (lol yes, I'm a scale whore)
Drink at least 64 oz of water a day
eat at least 2 servings of veggies per day)

I'm still figuring out things so I'll post as they come to mind.

New Year, New Me

SO I have embarked on this weightloss challenge in '09. The plan was to start on the 1st but I will be starting tomorrow, the 5th. I just got back into town and because my Mac is giving me the blues right now, I didn't have access to a comp or my workout things. Anyway, I plan to take my stats and start p90x then.
I also have an appointment with a Mac "genius" to find out what is going on with my comp. I'm pretty sure that I will need a new hard drive. (fell off the table before it went through the scanner at the airport and yes I fully intend to file a claim with TSA). But anyway, I know that I'm basically screwed since the comp is out of warranty. My main concern is all of my photos which,unfortunately, I never got around to backing up. I fully intended to purchase an external hard drive and move some things to it but figured it could wait until I got back. Little did I know !!!The one saving grace is thati can replace the hard drive myself so thats a few dollars saved.

Back to working out, I intend to WOWY as well if my pc (which I am trying to get used to again) will hold up.
