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.
So, how are your workouts going? I would love to hear about them – just click on Leave a Reply and let me know.
Have a great weekend!
I’m fairly consistent in walking daily, except this past weekend since I was sick. I also am planning on starting an online program this week ~ as soon as I get some quiet time! Thank you for linking up and sharing with Countdown in Style.
Thanks for hosting the link party, April. Hope you are feeling better. What online program are you going to start?
This is such a nice post all around. I like how you touch on your fitness journey and then you talk about your eating clean and then trying to get yourself in order in terms of your life as a whole. As far as eating chocolate, because I love it so much, I’ve been happily finding some great raw food tasty chocolate recipes on Pinterest. This way when I do want to splurge, I’m still using great, quality ingredients and it’s not much of a hit on my eating as it would be if I had the toxic store bought chocolate that the major brands entice us with. I haven’t even thought to look for raw chocolate already made in the store. I bet since the ingredients are quality it might cost an arm and a leg 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing your update with us at Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured 🙂
Thanks Brittnei! I buy some unprocessed dark chocolate at Sprouts and I really like that for a treat occasionally. Dark chocolate is suppose to be good for you in moderation -right? Thanks for hosting the weekly link party. I’ll check back on Friday.
my friend lost 20 lbs with this program. You look great. Hugs
Thank you. I am not really trying to lose weight – just tone up more. Thanks for the follow, too.
