P90X Lean: Weekly Update

My workouts got rearranged this week due to the fact that I had a monster cold which knocked me out for two days of the week. This was also my second recovery week.




**Core Synergistics

**Cardio X

**Cathe's Kick Max(cardio only)

**unintentional off day, I decided to go out to a late lunch with my husband--at PFChangs--and no kiddos(I love them dearly but there is definitely something to be said for a couple hours of adult conversation).

A Valentine's Day Finish

I made DH a pair of socks for Valentine's Day and I finished them on Valentine's Day which is a feat in itself. He loves them. They are worsted weight and very warm; perfect for padding around the house.

Pattern: Flying Trapeze Socks, Interweave Holiday 2008
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers
Needles: size 5 dpns

I'll show you what I got tomorrow.

P90X Lean: Weekly Update

Day 36-42:

Core Synergistics:
**burned 491 calories

**burned 530 calories

Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps/Ab Ripper:
**burned 346 calories

**I didn't wear my heart rate monitor today. I feel like it gets in my way during yoga.

Legs and Back/Ab Ripper:
**367 calories burned

Alternate Cardio:
**Cathe's IMAX Extreme
**653 calories burned

Thoughts on the week:
**I tried wearing my heart rate monitor for all workouts(except yoga and stretch) just to get an idea of how many calories I'm burning. It's about what I thought which makes me feel good--I like that I am able to gauge my own intensity even if I'm not wearing the monitor.
**Food: the usual problem. It really stinks that 80% of your results are based on what you eat(10% genetics, 10% exercise). I try to keep telling myself that food is fuel but darn I really like to eat and not always healthy. I'm going to do more work with my journal next week. I may use Weight Watchers Points next week just to see where I am at food wise.

Challenges 2009: February

My February Challenges are:

**to finish Provence Sampler. I should have ample time to do this as I am not blogging everyday this month.

**to continue my P90XLean rotation. I finished Phase 1 during January with no missed workouts and I will finish Phase 2 during this month and start Phase 3(which is the last phase in the 90 days).

In January, I met my goal of posting every day. Now I only have to that two more times this year :)
