This week was pretty good considering I had many social engagements that made it difficult to keep focused on my workouts. I did every video this week–finally! Other than actually doing all the videos, I really don’t see much progress. Granted I’ve seen minor improvements in the weight I am able to lift and my endurance. This was especially apparent during the Yoga X video. The first time I did it, it was a nightmare. This time I made my way through the whole video and remainder injury free the next day. My weight has stabilized at about 107. I’ve had major cravings for red meat recently–like every night I wish to savor a tasty steak. Alas, I’ve only indulged once. I do have a thought on free weights versus resistance bands: I like free weights better. I feel like free weights make you stabilize your core and insist on control.
My flexibility has improved greatly as you can see by the photograph. A couple weeks ago I would not have had the strength to do a back bend let alone a back bend with one leg in the air. (granted I could work on a straighter free leg…anyways).
Next week is the “rest” week 4. I will be in Las Vegas for the majority of that time. I’ve obtained a digital version of my P90X series and will be taking it along on my iPad. After week 4 I plan on repeating Phase 1. I just don’t feel as though I completed Phase 1 in the proper manner–meaning weeks 1 & 2 I did not do the complete workout due to injury. So plan on seeing Week 1 Redux, Week 2 Redux, and Week 3 Redux. I will, however, post a 30 day progress report. I guess I could be calling this workout plan P120X.
