Working Out Week 7 of 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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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 🙂

    1. 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.
