Working Out Week 7 of 2014
February 15, 2014
I have now completed the 6th week of the 13 weeks of P90X3. This week was the same schedule as last week. I think from this 3 week rotation of workouts my favorites are Triometrics and MMX. I still really like CVX as well but since that was a favorite in the first 3 weeks I wanted to pick a couple of new ones for the new round of workouts.
Triometrics is a leg burner for sure. I mentioned on my facebook page the other day that it should be called Killer Legs. This workout is definitely transforming my legs, hips and glutes.
MMX is the kickboxing – mixed martial arts workout that is a lot of fun. Time flies when you are doing this one – it hardly even seems like 30 minutes. This workout is a total body routine. I am looking forward to doing it again in the coming week – week 7.
I have been trying to maintain eating a clean diet while doing this workout. Actually I try and eat clean most of the time. I did splurge a little this week with it being Valentines Day yesterday and I made some homemade chocolate peanut clusters for my family. I ate 2 of them. I feel like it is okay to have a treat a couple of times a week as long as it is in moderation and you limit how much you have. I don’t think it is a good idea to deprive yourself of everything especially if you have been working really hard.
I have also been trying to take in more fiber. I have been eating Bob’s Red Mill 7 grain hot cereal in the mornings. That cereal is pretty good with a little honey and almond milk stirred into it. I have also stirred in some honey and peanut butter with a little milk. It is very satisfying and keeps you full for quite a while. It has 6 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein per serving. 6 grams of fiber is 23% of your daily fiber.
My motivation quote this week was:
This week I also got Tony Horton’s new book that was just released last week. It is called The Big Picture – 11 Laws That Will Change Your Life.
I have not started reading it yet as I am currently reading three other books and I want to finish one of those first. I have skimmed through it and it looks like an excellent book and I can’t wait to start it. I am hoping to finish a book this weekend so I can start reading Tony’s book. I will update more on the book in my weekly fitness post as I start reading it.
