P90X Lean: Weekly Update

Day 36-42:

Core Synergistics:
**burned 491 calories

Plyometrics:
**burned 530 calories

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

Yoga:
**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.

Hmm, the heart rate monitor might be useful for me to try out. I was wondering how you knew how many calories you were burning. Good luck, you are doing great!

Hi! I googled "how many calories bured during p90x plyometrics" and got to your page. Normally I would have just gleaned the information I needed and left, but I am astounded to meet someone who shares so many of my interests. Knitting, writing, p90x, humor like "where my stitches at" which made me laugh for quite a while...everything was going swimmingly until I saw that you're in Ravenclaw :P

Anyway, not a stalker or anything, just wanted to say hi! Good luck with p90x. I'm on day 2 of my second 90 days...I lost a lot of weight and carved out some serious definition in the first 90!
