Day 01 of P90X

P90X: Core Synergisitcs


This workout kicked my ass. I tried my best to get through it with all the superman bananas. Those were killer but I enjoyed the pain because I knew it would be one step closer to my "beachbody" as Tony Horton claimed. I had trouble with all the push-ups and variations of it but I shook it out and walked in place while they finished up. Dreya has a killer body for sure but dang she is so hardcore, taking every exercise to the extra mile. Very inspiring.

Diet was crappy today.

Breakfast : Coffee, handful of Club Crackers (Sorry, running late to church)
Lunch: Water, PF Chang Lettuce Chicken Wraps, a slice of Mother's Day Cake (terrible!)
Roast Beef Salad, Water


This is something I gotta work on for sure.

Tony Horton will be my Hero

My weapon of choice:Yes, the famous P90X. Why? Well, I've tried it before and have seen results, but then I admit, I got lazy and messed up everything! I did it for about a month with a diet and lost some pounds with inches off the waist and hips. I was doing it with my fiance who was really, really dedicated to it and he lost 20lbs with very visible results including 3 inches off his waist. We did it to our own accord though, and just did the most cardio and plyometrics as possible.

So what will be different this time?

I'll be doing the P90X Lean which concentrates on maximum weight loss and less of putting on muscle mass. I google searched P90X Lean and the images alone inspire me! This time I'd doing it the way it was instructed to in the booklet.

In addition to P90X Lean, I'll be dieting again. My fiance and I love to eat out together, and we always crave sushi! We eat it several times a week :( I know, bad. So our old diet will kick in as well. We ate the most carbs for breakfast, snacked on fruits and veggies, cut out carbs after 1pm, and didn't eat a large meal four hours prior to going to bed. It may not be the best diet, but I found it worked best for me. We also allowed a free day where we ate whatever we wanted but with control.

Woo! I'm motivated now! My fiance (who is also a photographer, btw), took my Day 1 pictures! 90 Days here I come!

Intro & Purpose..

Like almost every bride-to-be, one of my goals on my checklist is to "Lose Weight before the Wedding". With all the stress of planning a wedding, exercise should become an important regiment to help relieve our "Bridezilla" tendencies.

With this blog, I'll try to post my daily routine of diet and exercise as well as some wedding-planning drama I may come across. Hopefully I'll be able to get some feedback from some of you and share some insight as well.

A little info about me and my fiance...

We met November 17, 2007, officially began our love adventure November 25, 2007, and became engaged December 20, 2008. Because of my fiance's decision to enlist in the Navy, we were to be married this April but our fate had changed and now we plan to get married within the next year. We also hope to fund it entirely ourselves, so this will take time as money is an issue like with most of us during these hard economic times.

Oh yeah, I also had tried on a few dresses but have not yet found the one! But I did see that I was dissatisfied with the look of my body in the dresses, so I really hope I'll be able to fit into "the dress"!
