Just 30 days left…
Hopefully the boys will sleep tonight and we shall see what tomorrow brings. Until next time, take care and be well.
Until next time, be safe and be well.
This week will be the 60 day mark…more pictures, weigh-in and measurements. I’m excited and can’t wait to see how much I’ve improved since Day 30. Tomorrow is Cardio/Abs – my favorite. Until next time, be well and take care.
Until next time, be safe and enjoy your day.
I never said I was great at blogging, but I am going to try…
I’ve done many workout routines before. In fact, I was doing really well with my Windsor Pilates, except it finally gave out. I’d seen infomercials about P90X and Tony Horton, and it looked interesting, but I wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment. So, with the help of my friend, Suzanne Rogers she suggested I start with Power 90.
On Monday, September 13, I began my Power 90 journey, and I won’t go into too much detail about my past workouts, but I will say this – I am seeing results and the results are great. Power 90 is a 90-day workout boot camp. Throughout your journey, you track your progress and on days 1, 30, 60 and 90, you take photos and document your measurements. You workout 6 days a week and rest for one day. Each day is alternated between Sculpt/Circuit training, which includes weights, push-ups and squats. The alternate day is Sweat/Cardio training, which includes lots of leg work, jumping jacks, kicking, punching and Ab work.
Power 90 is broken up into Phases. Phase 1-2 introduces you to the routines and gets you and your body used to the workouts. The routines last about 45 minutes and you go at your own pace. You transition into Phase 3-4 on Day 30 and the routines are a little more intense, you go at a faster pace and they last between 35 and 50 minutes.
The one thing you need to remember with the Power 90 workouts is you go at your own pace and always listen to your body. I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve worked out in the past, but what’s great about the Power 90 boot camp is that I have incorporated my workouts into my daily routine. I like to workout in the mornings anywhere between 6 and 10 am. The boys are great motivators and my Mini-Tony coaches. They love to encourage me and do some of the routines with me. It’s a family thing.
Today was Day 54 of my Power 90 Boot camp, and I finished Sculpt 3-4. My favorite routines in this workout are the Max Push-ups and Max Squats. My best so far have been 40 push-ups in 45 seconds and 35 squats in 45 seconds. I am definitely seeing results in my arms, abs and my endurance level has improved. With that said, these results are NOT only due to the workouts. I take my Oligo vitamins daily, my eating has improved, and I have made changes in my lifestyle to compliment these changes. All these things put together have contributed to me feeling healthier, less tired and able to get through my day.
I’m not posting pictures until I complete the Power 90 Boot Camp. I don’t want to get too cocky and think that because I’ve made progress that I can slack off. I will also do my best to post each day after completing my workout routine.
Until then, be well, and stop by soon.
