I have been having discussions with my coach regarding my lack of progress. I feel like my "eating" has been at fault. I am definitely doing the work! Hell yeah! I'm doing the work!!! This just proves that you can exercise and if your diet is not in compliance, you won't see the results you're after. It's not that I'm not eating the right stuff....just maybe I haven't gotten the calorie thing down yet. Maybe my protein is too low, or carbs too high. I haven't quite figured it out yet, but we're leaning towards upping my protein a bit. One step at a time. I am going back to the basics that I know work for me--journaling all my food--I use Sparkpeople.com to keep track of my calories and such. I have gotten away from doing that and I think it has made a difference--I've gotten lax.
I have 60 days left in the 90 day program. I know that women historically don't show huge improvements in the first 30 days. We will just keep moving on, day after day. It's not like I'm going to quit after 90 days....this is a lifetime thing. I need to workout and eat right for the rest of my life, P90X may be just the start of major changes for me.
If I were to give someone like me advice, it would be this: "Stick with it. Persistance is key. You can't win if you don't play!"
I am logging everything I eat in my book or Sparkpeople.com
I am eating the right amounts of food for my body type
I am happy with me today!
