Posted: April 11, 2013 by Justin M. Strawn in Fitness Updates

Exercise: P90X Arms & Shoulders

Burned: 582

Total Calories Burned for the week: 2,330

Weight Watchers Daily Points Used: 42 of 42

Weekly Points Used: 10 (19 left for the week)

Activity Points Used: 0

Activity Points Remaining: 17

Successes: I did everything that I planned to do yesterday, until the very end. Then everything went to Hell in a hand basket.

Failures: Hi, my name is Justin, and I have a cookie addiction. Second time this week I have thrown a pretty good day off completely because I can’t stop eating cookies. We bought some as part of a fundraiser for my son’s school. They are there; therefore, I eat them. Soon they will be gone and hopefully I will quit wrecking my progress with them.

Outlook for today: I have a pretty important meeting this afternoon that could make getting in at a relatively decent hour difficult. Regardless, I am pretty sure I will be eating out for dinner tonight, so I just need to choose something healthy. I hope you have a great day ladies and gentlemen, and keep grinding through the pain!

Exercise: Insanity Max Interval Circuit Calories

Burned: 1082

Total Calories Burned for the week: 1,748

Weight Watchers Daily Points Used: 42 of 42

Weekly Points Used: 10 (29 left for the week)

Activity Points Used: 0

Activity Points Remaining: 17

Successes: I did okay. I took my son to the doctor, thankfully he just has bronchitis and an ear infection. That meant a late supper, so just grabbing something quick was my only option. I got a burger. Not the best option, but there were plenty of other options that would have been a lot worse.

Failures: Just the burger. Pretty much an okay day.

Outlook for today: I have everything planned out for the day, so I just need to stick to it. I also already got my workout in which makes my frame of mind so much better. I hope you have a great day ladies and gentlemen and may all of your fitness dreams come true!

What went right, what went wrong

Last week was full of mixed results. I only got in 4 workouts, I like to get in 6, possibly 7. I also ate terribly on the days that I didn’t work out. It’s always hard to maintain my discipline with eating when I don’t exercise.

On weeks where I don’t get as many workouts in as I would like, I have decided to make the Insanity portion of my routine the priority. Of the fours days, I did Insanity 3 days and P90X once.

Goals for the week

1. Get a full week’s worth of workouts in. Holidays throw me off a lot, and I am still seeing that from when I was out during Easter.

2. If I don’t get a workout in, I want to really practice being more disciplined when I eat. I nee dot get better in that area.

3. Just pay attention to the way my body reacts to the reintroduction of weight lifting. Adding weight to my body isn’t a bad thing so long as it is muscle. That being said, I also have to pay close attention to the way I eat because if I eat poorly all week and my weight goes up, then it probably isn’t muscle.

One other thing, I am going to try to blog as often as usual (1 or 2 times a day) but we are getting really close to State tests so my time will be really crowded during these last few weeks of school.

Have a great day ladies and gentlemen, and may all of your fitness dreams come true!
