P90X check in ...

So, I am officially done with phase one of P90X. And now it's time for a status report. Well, I will admit that during the first week, I didn't think I was going to make it the whole 90 days. It was hard. I was sore. And it made running REALLY uncomfortable.

But, as the first month passed, I found myself getting stronger, more flexible and toned. Which was enough to keep me motivated, even excited to continue. And now, 28 days in, I psyched about my progress. Take a look at the numbers

Weight - Day 1: 152, Day 28: 151.5
Body Fat Percentage - Day 1: 23%, Day 28: 21%
Waist - Day 1: 30 3/4", Day 28: 30"
Chest - Day 1: 35 1/2", Day 28: 34 1/2"
Hips - Day 1: 37", Day 28: 36"
Right Thigh - Day 1: 22", Day 28: 21 3/4"
Left Thigh - Day 1: 22", Day 28: 21 3/4"
Right Arm - Day 1: 11 1/2", Day 28: 11 1/4"
Left Arm - Day 1: 11 1/2", Day 28: 11 1/2"

Total Loss: .5 lbs, 2% body fat, 3 1/2"

And the photographic evidence (Day 1 followed by Day 28) ...

Wow, you really can see a difference- great job :).

I was actually thinking about trying P90x but was wondering if it might be too difficult for me right now (still trying to get IN shape)- would you recommend this to someone who has only been working out for a few months and has a good chunk of excess weight to lose?

impressive results for 28 days :)

S Club Mama said...

Run DMT said...

Visiting here from It's Life, Max It Out and I'm so glad I did. Great stuff here!

I am mom on the run also, but it's been awhile since I actually ran due to being preggers with Baby #3. I was wogging for a bit, but now my body just can't handle it and my doctors advised me to stop for a little while. I miss it though.:-(

I am chomping at the bit to try P90x program after I drop this baby. It seems like a great way to strength train, especially for runners like us. You look amazing! WTG, mama!

I'm adding you to my Running Blog list. :-)

Jill said...

You're looking awesome, way to go! Just think how incredible you'll look (and feel) after the 90 days. Keep it up!!

Katie A. said...

Holy Abs Batman! You look awesome! I mean, you looked HOT before, but I love the abs! That's my dream!
I'm doing old crunches and reg ab work with a giant ball thingy and I hate that everyday I have to do more to get the burn! Do you find that with the P90X?

Heather said...
