P90X Round 2: Week 1 & 5 Pounds Gone!

Hey you all, like is said in my last video, Tasha is going for another round of P90X!! Round 2!! Last week began round 2 with a new meal plan and new goals to achieve as well. In round 2 I could shed off more weight and return back to my healthy weight of 168 pounds!! Last week began round 2 and my hubby is going along for the ride too! It is nice to have a workout buddy. Having a buddy to workout with makes me workout harder, because I am so darn competitive at times, lol. And, it also helps me keep in track of my form through out each workout. At the beginning of the 2nd round my weight began at 188 pounds. When I weighed in on Saturday my weight was:

  • 183 pounds!! Lost 5 pounds this week!!!

Now I know for sure that I will not continue to lose weight like this every week, but it was awesome to have that jump start with exercising and the new meal plan too! I am so geeked and excited to be into week 2 again! For more details of how this week went check out my video below for more details!

Fitness With P90X: Week 9 Update & On To Week 10.. Sick too :(

Hey all, getting sick is getting very old. At the end of week 9 my allergies hit me hard! Sinus congestion and sneezing then. . . voice is missing somewhere in the universe. I swear it is not fair. I wanted to hit it hard toward the middle of week 9, but I guess not, grrrrr! I guess you have to rest when the body says to huh? I guess I can’t complain because I went a head this past Saturday and weighed in. To my surprise I drop 1.5 pounds leaving me at 188.5!! Not bad!! I am not going to get too excited because I was sick and sometime my weight drops more during that time. So my prayer going into week 10 is that I maintain that loss.

Stats:

  • Jan 8th: Start weight: 198lbs
  • Jan 15th: 198lbs (no gain/lose)
  • Jan 22nd: 196 (-2lbs) Yeah!! A loss and I will take it!
  • Jan 29th: 196 (no gain/lose) But I lost inches!
  • February 5: 195 (-1lbs) totaling 3 pound for the fist 4 weeks
  • February 13th: 194 (-1lbs) totaling 4 pounds in 5 weeks
  • February 20th: 192 (-2lbs) totaling 6 pounds in 6 weeks
  • February 27th: 190.5 (-1.5lbs) totaling 7.5 pounds in 7 weeks!! Getting excited for the next coming weeks!!
  • March 6th: 190 (-.5lbs) totally 8 pounds in 8 weeks!! I will take it considering I was sick.
  • March 13th: 188.5 (-1.5lbs) totaling 9.5 in 9 weeks!! Considering I was sick again with these darn allergies! Will they ever leave me alone?

Sorry, no video for week 9. I was at work this past weekend and I was talking all day long and then my voice decided to disappear. Now I am being called squeaky at home, lol. I also was not able to get pictures of my 60 results, but don’t worry they will be coming later this week and I will post them in my week 10 results video this weekend for sure.

I have to say, that many people have been asking  the following questions:

  1. Can I lose weight fast with the P90X?
  2. Do you have to follow the meal plan too P90X?
  3. How do you plan your workouts?
  4. Does this program really work?

My Answers:

  1. No you will not lose weight fast with this program. P90X is not a quick weight loss program. This program is designed to help you burn fat and build strong lean muscle. If you are not used to interval/circuit training and weight training this program is not for you. With every program you should consult with you doctor before trying. be safe and workout smart.
  2. I would totally recommend following the suggested meals plans. I wish I would have at the beginning because if I did I may have had more weight loss. P90X requires you to workout 6 days a week for 1 hour at a time and you body requires a certain amount of calories, carbs and protein to make it through each workout in order to function and loss the fat. If you don’t you can deplete your body of the proper nutrition and hender you weight loss in the long run.
  3. With anything you must plan out your day. I work a full time job, I am a mother and a wife. So it is all about time management. I work a retail job so my schedule changes all the time. So I make sure that if I work a late shift I plan to work out in the morning after I get my son off to school instead of going back to bed to get the extra sleep. or if I work a early shift I workout in the evening after I get my son to bed. So I may be working out at 8 or 9pm in at night. When there is a will there is a way. Then once my workouts are done then I go about watching T.V, cleaning the house, running errands, work or making of course Youtube videos. Remember manage your time. If you really want to change your body you will make time for it.
  4. Yes this program does work if you follow it! I am losing fat and leaning up and I will continue to week by week. just be patient with your progress.

I hope that helps. Well, I am still stuffing for the allergies to this day however I am still working out to my best. Yesterday I did my chest shoulders and triceps workout and I am sore. I really need to order that recovery drink and I think I will. I heard that it really helps your muscles recover from each workout and I need it. A few minutes ago I just finished the cardioX workout. I did the whole workout at my pace and I am glad that I did. I feel accomplished and now I can really rest.

Well, I am off for now! I hope that you all have a blessed week and I will chat soon.

hugs,

Tasha 🙂

Fitness With P90X: Life Hits Ya and Ya Get Sick. . .

Hey all I am getting to the end of week 8 results and it will be time for my weekly weigh in and results that will be done on Saturday or Sunday. This week life surely got in my way which affected my workouts and eating this week. Over the weekend my hubby and son was sick with either allergies or sinus infections and I was praying please don’t let me get sick, please! Well. . . Sunday came and I started to get sniffles and I was like Damn! I better not get sick. I was able to do the following workouts which was:

  • Saturday: Cardio Intervals (which can be found on the bonus DVD) I placed that workout instead of doing YogaX.
  • Sunday: I did Core Synergistics (However I only made it through 40 minutes. . . I was starting to feel it then
  • Monday: I did KenpoX the entire workout

Tuesday came and I felt it. I was sick with a small fever and sinus congestion. I was so mad because I hate to get sick.  It just throws my whole week and workout goals out of whack! I hate to lose my momentum with me leaning down. I really want to see awesome results this week, but I have to listen to my body and rest. All in all, I missed my Wednesday and Thursday workout! I guess I will not beat myself up life happeneds, right? So with that said I will continue with the remainder of the workouts and not do my results until Sunday morning and move on to week 9.

I decided to skip out on the Stretch X DVD and instead complete the cardioX. I felt like sweating and burning some calories and I did!! Today I was so excited because I was able to do 5 Dreya Rolls in a row!! Yahooooooooooooooooooooo!! I could never do that! Tomorrow I is supposed to be yogaX day, but. . . I really don’t like this workout. It’s too long and slow paced for me. Does anyone else feel that way? I almost want to replace that workout as a whole, but I guess I shouldn’t. I get the fact that it’s makes you stronger and more flexible, but dang! 1 hour and 30 minutes!! I will have to do that workout right when I get home from work tomorrow otherwise it will not get done at all. So, that is what I plan to do.

Well, anyway, it is time for me to hit the showers and get ready for work. Stay tuned my get fit beauties I will have my results and video up this Sunday!!

Keep bringing it,

Tasha 🙂

Fitness With P90X (Day 35 Rest Day, Week 5 Results & New Foods!)

Hey all yesterday was my rest day and the end of week 5 of the P90X program for me. This week was fun seeing myself improve and challenge myself with the cooking. I tell you of all the cooking was well worth it because I was not retaining as much water this week. You may ask retaining water? Well, this week is my pre-menstruation time when I start to retain a lot of water and hence water gain with the scale and this week that did not happened!! Yey!! I guess the science behind it all is when you eat healthy and clean, drink water and exercise your body will not retain, so that is a great thing for me because I decided to weight myself to see if I lost any pounds this week. Well. . .  This week I lost another pound!!!! I am so excited about that. So, in 5 weeks I lost 4 pounds and I will take it along with the muscle gain too! I am noticing that my arms and legs are starting to get more lean and my abs are also reduce in size, so program is working for me for sure! I will give you me details on my video in a bit.

Stats Thus Far:

  • Jan 8th: Start weight: 198lbs
  • Jan 15th: 198lbs (no gain/lose)
  • Jan 22nd: 196 (-2lbs) Yeah!! A loss and I will take it!
  • Jan 29th: 196 (no gain/lose) But I lost inches!!
  • February 5: 195 (-1lbs) totaling 3 pound for the fist 4 weeks!
  • February 13th: 194 (-1lbs) totaling 4 pounds in 5 weeks!

This week I changed my meal plan and went according to the nutrition guide and I believe by doing that I was successful in the weight loss. Speaking of the foods that you may prepare from the meal plan. I recommend to have lots of Tupperware to store you food or freeze. You will make lots of soups and sauces throughout the first week and hence a lot a servings for leftovers. So, make sure you have freezer safe containers to store. The will preserve your food and in the next week you will have left to thaw instead of having to prepare new soups, rice, and sauces everyday.

What I ate today was:

  • Breakfast: Soy muffin my version with milk
  • Snack: Protein Bar
  • Lunch: (My favorite) Steak and Arugula Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette!!
  • Snack: String cheese (don’t like turkey jerk)
  • Dinner: (the sauce was yummy!) Chicken breast, Honey Chille sauce, Quinoa(different, but tasty) and snap peas

Pictures of my main meals:

All in all, the meals were yummy and left me feeling full and never hungry, so I was glad about that. So going into week 6 I will continue with the meals and prepare for more success! How did your week go? Anyway, check out the video for more 🙂

Well, Later today I did the KenpoX and made it through the entire workout and it was wonderful as usual. It is my favorite workout for sure. I am glad that I did both workouts today because it gave me a chance to catch up and stay on point with my workouts for sure. My meal plan for today was:

  • Breakfast: Turkey Bacon, chicken scramble and grapefruit juice
  • Snack Protein Bar
  • Lunch: Left over Shrimp Stir fry
  • Snack: String Cheese

Fitness With P90X: (Day 32 & 33 Chest, Shoulders & Tris & YogaX)

The past days have been pretty busy for me Tuesdays I workout and clean my house and the later my son is home from school and later that evening we prepare for his Taekwondo glass until 7:30 and we did not return home until 8:00pm. After that is bedtime for him, story time and bed. After that is all said and done then I rest or blog, however, I was so wiped out I rested instead of blogging and filmed makeup tutorials. So, with all that said and was not able to blog for the past few days. Now, I will bring you all update to date with my progress with the P90X program.

On Tuesday was a new workout for me which was Chest, Shoulders and Triceps. OMG! Push up city!! So many different ways to challenge my chest. Let me tell you my chest was on FIRE!! I was looking forward to the shoulder and the triceps workouts so bad in order to give my chest a break. Even two days later my chest is still sore, lol. The workout was 50 minutes long and I made it through 35 minutes. I tried to keep going but I was done. So, my goal for week 6 is to go through the entire workout. My meal plan was delicious and very filling. I don’t think I ate dinner that day because I was so full from lunch and my afternoon snack and I forgot to eat because I dosed off. I ended up eating a protein bar for dinner. But anyway . . .

Meal Plan for Day 32 (Tuesday)

  • Breakfast: Turkey sausage muffin ( I had to substitute because I did not make it to the store)
  • Snack: Protein Bar
  • Steak and Arugula/spinach salad (Yummy!!!)
  • Snack: string cheese
  • Dinner: Protein Bar

Here are a few Pics of my breakfast and lunch



As Far as Day 33 (Wednesday)

Wednesday was a work day so, my workout was late last night before bedtime and it was a YogaX day! So not much to explain, since this workout is becoming routine to me. How about you? Is this workout less challenging for you after the 4 weeks? My meal plan for yesterday was leftovers from my other meals because I need to do another grocery haul today. So what I ate was. . .

Meal plan:

  • Breakfast: Mushroom Omelet, strawberries and cottage cheese
  • Snack: protein bar
  • Lunch: Shrimp Stir-fry
  • Snack: Soy nuts
  • Dinner: Turkey burger and potato (yes potato was not apart of the original guide)

Of course I did not mention the water intake for both days, but I did consume 64-72 oz each day.

Today Day 34 will be a double day for me. This morning I will do Legs and Back and Ab ripper and then later tonight I will do KenpoX , so that I can stay on schedule for my rest day tomorrow. I will update later for today’s post on a new blog posting tonight. Other than that I am out for now! Chat soon 🙂

Fitness With P90X: (Day 31 & 3rd Day of Nutrition Guide)

Yesterday, will be short and sweet. It was day 31 of the P90X program and a CardioX day. In week 5 I will stress again that I am able to work harder and burn more calories than ever!! Honestly I was so glad that I did my workout before going into work because when I returned home I was ready to rest for sure!

It was also another run and the nutrition guide and this time around the food was still yummy however, I could not eat everything. I was full fast and felt satisfied throughout the day minus my sweet treat in the evening. I had a musketeer bar. I should have had a protein bar, but you know the rest. I decided to give myself that one treat so that I would not go crazy and binge later in the evening and it worked like a charm.

Meal Plan was yummy! I have not had fresh squeezed juice in a long while and the fresh squeezed  grapefruit was delicious. Here is my meal plan for yesterday:

  • Breakfast: Chicken Scramble, turkey bacon and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
  • Snack: Protein Bar
  • Lunch: Vegetable soup + protein powder 1tbsp and tuna salad with lettuce
  • Snack: Soy nuts
  • Dinner: Halibut, brown wild rice, zucchini
  • sweet treat: musketeer. (I will not do that too often)
