Power 90 - two weeks in.

Monday, March 22, 2010

LOVING the workouts.
HUGE energy and the endorphins are really pumping. I can really feel myself getting stronger with every sculpt workout - it's really encouraging. Haven't lost a lb, in fact, started off by gaining a couple. I really had to make a point to press on and not let myself get discouraged. One really amazing loss - inches! I've somehow lost 2" in my waist already. Can't wait to see what's in store for me on day 30, 60... 90! I'm not a real infomercial type of person, but I can't stop blabbing about this workout.

Food.
I have to admit that this isn't really a big hurdle for me. I tend to eat pretty much the same anyway. The big issue for me was more a lack of consistency in working out. HOWEVER, I am also making a point to monitor my foods daily, which keeps me accountable overall, which I like. I do "cheat" once in a while, though I really make a point not to overdo it - ie: a small glass of wine with dinner, or a once a week splurge (I did have a cupcake on Sunday) although I try to keep it to one small item once a week, or a fake splurge (like skinny cow, etc). Funny thing is, sometimes I now finding that I'd rather have a fresh apple than anything else. So that's kind of nice!

I've chosen to stick with spark people over WOWY. Haven't even bothered to open a WOWY account.

    The gain in inches is definitely muscle building... I gained nearly 2 lbs sometime between Day 1 and 17 and it took me 2 more weeks to get it off. But now I'm loosing again! Whatever you do, don't let something like that get you down. Trust me this is an adventure and it will have it's gains and losses, but your overall health will be a gain!

    And I'm really glad to hear your knee is feeling better already, just make sure not to over-train. Building muscle back is the most important as long as you're doing it properly.

    Thanks for the encouragement KIMPENNEY! One thing I forgot to mention is that I actually GAINED .5" in my thighs.

    I am just going on the assumption that it is a mix of new muscle mass and/or water weight due to muscle repair?

    But, all things considered, I feel great! And, my knee actually feels BETTER than when I was sedentary.

    That's great! I didn't have nearly the success you seem to be having in your first 2 weeks... but I too kept on! I really like power 90 and now I have biceps, I didn't even know those muscles worked on this body, lol!

    Keep at it, you will find success and as for the sparkpeople site, I know I'm a lifer I've tracked my food for over a year and it's simply something I do everyday, like brushing teeth, etc.
