Day 3, Phase 3 of P90X
The hardest part of this whole project has been getting the nutrition right. Everyone has his/her own opinion of what is right. I have read tons of books, done research on the net, and read blogs. I have not been very happy with my results as of late. I know for a fact that it is my nutrition--I have been slipping. My workouts have been awesome! I have missed just a couple in the 9 weeks I have been doing this. I honestly believe that nutrition is 80% of the equation! I can FEEL the muscles under the fat--I just need to get rid of the fat. I am proud that I am working out and can do the things I'm doing! BUT...I need to get my eating plan under control.
I have decided to chuck all the info I have read. One writer has me eating low carb, another high carb, one says calories are the only thing that matters, and yet another says eat more! eat more--you should be eating 2000 calories a day. Well, I have decided that they are all full of hooey. I am going to use my own God-given common sense and decide for myself what works for ME!!! I think I should be the best judge of that. I know the basics of good nutrition, I think I can do a better job for myself than a complete stranger writing in generalities.
This might be pretty radical, since a lot of these writers have lots of initials after their names, and work as trainers, etc. We are living in radical times, and I need to take radical action! LOL!!! I am taking back my life and my right to think for myself! I am currently at 36% body fat. Tune in next week for progress report!
