P90X DAYS 140-141: Chest/Back & Plyo AND Checking the Scale.
CHECK OUT MY RAMBLING ON VARIOUS OTHER FORMS OF SOCIAL MEDIA.
Perhaps my metabolism may not be as horrible as what I thought. 141 Days of P90X could probably do that. From everything I ate and drank over the weekend, I was expecting to look at the scale over the next couple weeks and be like:
I know I really shouldn't care about it, or even check the scale for that matter, BUT, I still do. My recommendation to EVERYBODY is to not even look at the damn thing. Maybe once a week. That's it. Don't get in THAT habit. The scale isn't what matters. But, of course, I can't follow my own advice.
I'm just too curious. I always have to know what's going on.
Me to my scale:
That said. I've really hit the workouts hard and ate pretty decent this week (so far). Even for me. So. When I checked the scale this morning:
I'm down 0.4lbs to 192.6. A new 11+ year low.
STUFF FOR 7/7/14
This time around. I made more of an effort to get deeper on Military and Decline Pushups, so my reps are down. For the first time, 140 Days in, I also did a Proper Diamond Pushup. My hands were actually in a Diamond Shape, instead of spread a bit and I went all the way to the ground on each rep.
Since I still do not have my pull up bar, I also bumped up the band to 30lbs.
When I was done, I took a look in the mirror. Slightly pleased with myself for a change.

STUFF FOR 7/8/14
This was me after I was done.
I was completely exhausted. I really pushed it and kept up the whole time, but I had to extend the breaks. I don't remember being this wiped out from Plyo before. I think it might have had something to do with eating before I did this workout. Normally, on Plyo days, I wait until after I'm done...to feed my face.
According to Tony
Don't be eatin' at least an hour before you do Plyo. Alright? That'd be silly. You'd get a cramp and have to stop.
However, I still waited nearly 2 hours before I started, so I was like, what the hell Tony?
Or. Maybe. It just had something to do with the fact I have not done this workout or Legs/Back in 2 weeks because I pulled a calf muscle.
