Back in the 280’s again….
No, this is not a rehash of the post I made last March. But I am happy to report after 9 days of eating better (still not good) and working out using P90X and drinking Shakeology, I’ve lost 5 pounds and am now UNDER 290 again for the first time in probably 8 or more months?
It’s 25 days until my 42nd birthday. So if I can plan to lose 2-3 pounds a week, I could conceivably be UNDER 280 by my birthday. The lowest recorded weight I’ve seen since my lap band surgery almost 3 years ago was 277 pounds. Right now I feel like I can continue to do P90X in the mornings Monday – Saturday and get a long run in on the weekend. I have yet to see if I can muster up the energy to throw an extra short run in on Tuesday and Thursday. But I’m going to try. My biggest fear right now is injury. This is by far the most working out I’ve done in my life. Should I continue on this path, as I’ve mentioned, I will have worked out 91 days by the end of P90X . . . . in a row.
I don’t think the 2-3 pouns a week is realistic to “count” on for the long term, but at least in this first month my body is getting “used” to P90X I think 2-3 pounds a week is totally doable. If we reduce that to a more likely 1-2 pounds a week starting in September and say I’m 279 by September 1st, I could maybe be at 265-260ish by the end of the year. That would be amazing!! AND my chances of finally doing a sub-2:45 1/2 Marathon in Vegas in December would be greatly increased.
Keep pushing play and Bring it!
