It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here hasn’t it? Well I’ll give you an update on how things are going with me in terms of fitness.
I finished P90X way back in January and I felt great about myself. I didn’t see the massive results that the infomercials showed, but I felt stronger than I have in my entire life.
My arms were much bigger and I actually had abs again! I’ve always had knee problems too, but they were far less noticeable after building up the muscle in my legs. Here’s a picture of me about 5 months after completing the program.
I have to admit that I didn’t follow the program to a “t” either though, so that might’ve helped me see greater results. I only stuck to the meal plan for the first month and I took one month off to do another routine after the second month, because I was getting kinda tired of the videos.
After completing the last 30 days of the program, I took a couple weeks off to give myself a break and then I started doing some routines from my Men’s Fitness magazines.
This is when I really started to realize how much stronger I had become.
I’ve done a lot of routines before starting P90X and they were always tough, but after P90X, they felt way too easy. I actually had to take my new routines and speed them just like how P90X works. No breaks in between each exercise.
It worked, but I just didn’t feel like it was working as much. This ended up making me not feel like working out as much anymore and I started to get lazy. I worked out here and there for the next few months, but definitely not regularly.
So I’ve decided to go through the P90X program once again. I actually did the Chest, Arms, and Triceps video this morning and I have to admit that my arms feel like noodles. I could barely lift my arms up to wash my hair this morning.
This feeling has me pumped!
I can’t wait to get started on the routine again. I can’t afford to stick to the meal plan, but I eat healthy anyway, so I should be ok.
Until next time!
