Update – Day 21 of P90X – Feeling Stronger and Still Losing Weight
Building Muscle and Losing Fat
This video is for day 21 of P90X. Things are going well and I’m down another 1.2 pounds but more importantly, I am down another 3/4 of an inch in my waist and a 1/2 inch in my chest which means I building muscle and burning fat. All my other measurements are the same. The ironic thing is that I weighed this morning because I was trying out my new scale with the fat calculator on it and I had lost another pound overnight. I think I am going into another weight reduction phase but it could be my imagination. One of these days… hopefully soon, I will start gaining muscle faster than I can lose fat because I won’t have much left. I can’t wait for that! I will know more in the coming weeks.
Also, I wouldn’t call week four a recovery week. I find that Yoga is one of the more challenging workouts and I have it twice this week. Plus, I watched the Core Synergistics video and it’s not walk in the park. Actually, I am looking forward to getting through this week so I can post my 30 day transformation. I can definitely feel the difference in how my clothes fit and my increases in flexibility and strength.
Building Muscle and Losing Fat Starts in the Kitchen
I have been following the nutrition plan to the letter and really watching what I eat and what my wife buys at the grocery store. I was going with her at first and now she just calls me when she is unsure about something. The main thing is that I have had to keep my calories under 1500 at day while consuming 50% Protein, 30% Carbohydrates and 20% Fat. That has been pretty challenging but I am getting it done. Depending on how I feel, I will move my caloric intake to 1800 or so in the next phase. I already have more energy but I will need the extra calories to increase the intensity of the workouts. I have also decided to order Shakeology for the next phase as a meal replacement in the morning. That alone will help me increase my calories a bit. I am signing up with Coach Wayne at TeamRipped.com because he is taller and should have better perspective than other coaches that I have seen online. Being tall has it’s own challenges.. like doing pullups for instance. He is 6’4″ and I am 6’3″ so there is that similarity. Now, if I can just get my body to look like his… WOW!
Building Muscle and Losing Fat is Addictive!
One last thing that I wanted to mention is that I have allergies really bad and things are really starting to bloom in the Napa Valley. Needless to say I have been dealing with headaches and dizziness because of it but I have been plowing through the exercises anyway. It’s really tough to get started but I actually feel better after the workouts. I am getting addicted to these workouts not only because I am shedding fat and building muscle, I just feel better plain and simple. Because of that I am actually looking forward to the workouts so I don’t feel so crappy. Good problem to have I guess.
That’s it for now. Until next week..
Take care and BRING IT!!
