P90X Day 23-26- I'm Grooving!

My way to a healthy lifestyle...

I am so proud of the way i been eating lately, it does not even feel as if I'm dieting or depriving myself of food because i want to make conscious and healthy choices for my body. I think when people introduce the word diet in their life they ultimately fail because they do it not to gain weight or loose, instead of doing it to live a healthy life.

Everywhere i go i bring my bottle of water and snacks, this helps me stay in check if i get hungry while i'm out. I told you guys this week was recovery week for me-Recovery week is important so your muscles take a break, recover and grow bigger. Intense weight-training puts a tremendous amount of stress on your body, and it is not just your muscles that are affected. The entire neuromuscular system, as well as immune function is stressed by weight-training so a week of rest every month is ideal. That's why i focused more on cardio workout this week.

Day 23 -Core Synergistic-- Truth is i didn't enjoy this workout at all. I should of because is great for your abs and much more yet i did about half hour of it and quit (fair to say i had a little accident that day, i drank 2 Advil PM by mistake which really messed my day) I haven't tried it again but will tomorrow. UGH
Day 24-I did Abs Ripper X and walked for 20 minutes. I was tired so i kept it light

Day 25- Cardio X- This was not on my schedule for this recovery week but i didn't want to do Core Synergistic. I like this workout a lot. It starts with Yoga, then some Kenpo X, Plyometrics and Core to make you sweat up a storm. I really enjoyed it mostly because it was short and sweet.

Day 26- Cardio X AGAIN- I had to do this workout again tonight because after going laser tagging with my daughter and her friends i was beat (i think i shredded  calories after 15 minutes of running in a sauna) When i got home i didn't know how i was going to fir today's workout, so i put on my workout clothes, shook the tiredness off and got my mind to work with my body and i completed this 43 min workout.

Great job Jackie!
I saw an infomercial for P90X and thought of you! If I could afford it, I might join you on this journey too. I might scope out Craigslist or something for a used and now unused version (o:

Keep up the great work!
