So about a month ago I finished the P90X routine. It was a great accomplishment for me. It wasn’t that I hadn’t been active before that; previously to my beginning the system I had done the Brazilian Butt Lift for somewhere around twenty weeks, it was the fact that I had stuck with the system for the full 90 days and only had one or two missed days in that entire time. The missed days I made up, by the way, and then some by writing out my set lists for the third phase and taking them to the gym where I basically double the sets to every exercise. Painful? Yes, but extremely effective.
After finishing the system I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next. I know that after Christmas I will probably try a new system, but I didn’t want to lock in to a whole new deal right before the crunch time of the holiday. Instead of starting a whole new routine, I simply modified my existing P90X routines, still taking set lists to the gym and doubling up the sets, by adding in the Brazilian Butt Lift cardio and leg routines.
I haven’t quite found my flow with this mix yet, but I am getting closer. Basically the deal I made with myself called for three days of weights and three days of cardio a week with a rest day at the end of each week. So far I have had to add three additional rest days in at random intervals due to my work schedule. A schedule which I usually don’t get until the Friday of the previous week which leaves me very little time to plan my meals and workouts around those days that I have to work. My schedule is never the same. Any given week I can get scheduled for 5AM shifts or closing shifts and any combination in between. I don’t really mean for this to sound like an excuse, but it is sort of my excuse.
Anyway, on to the results for this month. Here are my progress pics.
I am not sure if I will continue with Brazilian Butt Lift Cardio as I don’t think it is having the same affect that the P90X cardio routines provide. Perhaps I will give this one more month to show results and then decide in November whether the cardio should stay or go back to P90X. What do you think? I am definitely getting some more definition in my back, but I worry that my legs and butt aren’t quite shaping up with the rest of me. Honesty opinions people. No sugar coating on my account. I am a big girl; I can take the critiques.
And one more thing before I leave you all for the day. Good news is on the way, but for now it is super secret and I have virtually pinky-sworn that I will not give anything away quite yet. If you are a family member of mine and you are reading this, DON’T get your hopes up as there are no buns in this oven; thank our merciful lord. Soon. Very soon my lovelies I will let this cat out of the bag and bestow you with the knowledge that you are so very keen to hear. Or maybe not so keen.
Thanks for reading!
