Do your best and forget the rest…

Sorry to everyone who was anxiously waiting by their computer yesterday to read my blog; I know it’s so many of you!  I was supposed to go to the UK game, but my father-in-law ended up not being able to go and apparently I’m such a loser that I have no one else that wanted to go with me…well no one that was in town anyway.  Needless to say I didn’t quite start the diet yesterday which was good because I went grocery shopping last night and what did Kroger just put out on the sales floor…

Just a little slice of $.69 cent heaven!

For those of you that are trying to do P90X with both the workout and the diet I suggest the portion diet because the other one is just way too much food.  The problem I have is that I’m a level 3 because of my size, but when I eat I’m between level 1 and 2.  I probably don’t get enough, but what I’m eating is supplying me with A LOT of food – just not a ton of calories.  Kroger has Morning Star products for 2 for $6 so I bought 2 packs of spicy black bean burgers, 2 packs of the maple sausage patties, and 2 packs of the pizza burgers.  These provide quick and easy breakfasts and lunches. 

I know I mentioned it last year, but The Daily Plate is still a strong supporter for me since I can track everything I’m eating.  This year I’m going to post my weekly intakes with graphs and such from the daily plate so those of you who are interested can compare (if you’re doing the same).

Tonight was the first workout – Chest and Back.  I’m actually surprised how quickly the time passed – last year an hour seemed like eternity the first week, but tonight it felt like seconds.  I must be pushing myself a little harder because I thought for sure my stuffed pepper was going to come up after the workout.  I even skipped a few things because, I’m sorry, I just can’t do diamond push-ups or dive bombers!  The damn decline push-ups got me again because I don’t really have anything solid to prop my feet on that won’t slide all over the place.  No excuses…I’ll figure something out.  No dumbells yet so I was forced to use bands, but I actually felt like I really got a good workout from the bands…again I’m not sure if I’m pushing myself a little harder or what.  After chest and back Tony wanted me to do Ab Ripper 339 (as he likes to call it) – I got about 3 minutes in and there was NO WAY that was happening tonight.  I did my best and I’m trying to forget the rest…you do the same!

On a side note – Abbey and I saw The Fighter last week.  It was a pretty good movie based on a true story about boxing brothers from Boston.  Abbey mentioned this to me and I have to agree – so many cool movies are set in Boston…The Fighter, The Town, The Departed, Gone Baby Gone…must be something about the accent that makes them hardcore!  During the previews before the movie one of the movies said “limited 2D release” and the “older” woman behind me said, “oh 2D, I wonder what that looks like!”  It’s one of those moments where you hit the rewind button in your mind over and over again because you don’t believe what you just heard…it became the joke of the night.

While on the subject of movies…do you still rent movies?  If so, are you using Redbox?  If not, WTF MATE?!  Whether you like to use Redbox or not, sign up for their mobile alerts and you’ll get about one free rental a month.  It’s usually only good for a Tuesday or something random, but it’s a free movie if you have time. 

The posts will get better, I promise – I want more interaction this year…more comments…questions…suggestions.  Last year I had John that was tracking his progress with me and this year I have Marty – so Marty get some before pictures and measurements!

Until tomorrow…

P90Xtension


2011…here we come

2010 was a good year and to quote my wife, Abbey, “the fastest year I’ve ever experienced!”  In 2010 I saw my son, Isaac, take his first steps; I watched him develop into a little person who now punishes himself (the other day he was disobeying Abbey, she asked him if he needed to go in the corner and he took her hand and led her to the wall); I saw the resurgence of my DJ company and the continued growth already beginning for 2011; I saw many things that made me appreciate my wife even more and definitely assure me why I fell in love with her in the first place; I saw one too many episodes of 90210 (yes, the old one) and not enough episodes of Castle; I got hooked on more reality shows (Storage Wars, Pawn Stars, and more); I saw some disappointing job denials that all led to me finally getting a dream job with Luxottica; I saw myself run a 10k in under an hour; I saw myself lose nearly 30 pounds and 5 inches off my waist…I saw myself gain almost 10 of those pounds back.  It’s time to start regulating the intake and exercising the body – welcome to P90Xcetera!

For those of you who are new to this blog you can catch up on last years or start fresh with a new perspective.  You can choose to join me in the weight loss adventure or just cheer me on!  I had a goal last year of 205lbs, but I fell short by about 12lbs.  I still considered a success, especially after Abbey pointed out how differently my face looked two photos(before and after).

I had last my dimple when I had a bigger face!

This year my goal is again 205lbs which means I have 90 days (starting Monday 1/3) to drop about 20lbs.  I feel like I’m getting a running start because I’m able to learn from my mistakes last year – starting with the 10 egg omelet the first day was an awful idea!  As I got a couple weeks into my P90Xperience I feel like I perfected the diet and now I’ll start with that same knowledge.

I don’t know that I’m ready, or looking forward, to hanging out with D-Bag Tony for all the workouts but I’ll make the most of it while stirring my soup.  I’ve added dumbbells to my workout instead of using the bands so I think that’s going to really help the definition in my arms.  I’m actually going to do the pre-workout tests and take all the proper measurements and pictures so I have a TRUE base to go off of.  I’m going to REALLY try and post everyday because in some ways it’s what keeps me motivated.

 My goals:

  1. Drop to 205lbs
  2. Drop to a 32 or 34 waist (in all pants, not just some)
  3. Run either the Derby Mini Marathon or the Flying Pig Half Marathon – depends on one person in Louisville
  4. Keep the weight off and continue some sort of workout after the marathons
  5. Inspire one person

Day 73…

So…here’s what I don’t understand…how is it that blogging can be so much harder than working out or eating right?!  It seems like I got into a routine with the eating and it has pretty much become second nature…working out has become something I just do…but after 30 straight days of writing a blog something in me said “F that shit…it’s too hard!”  Really?  Too hard?!  Man I have problems.  Well, I have problems besides the blogging…the eating and working out.  Kind of ironic that I wanted to start my blog this way since tonight I chose to not work out and just write my blog – beginning my workout at 11pm doesn’t really help matters, but something about sitting on the couch with Abbey and just chillaxin for an evening is SOOO much better than sweating my B’s off in the office! 

Last week I got down to 220 and it was a really good feeling.  Oh yeah, by the way…Abbey and I decided that my official starting weight was 245 because everyday that I weighed myself before I started the P90Xperience I was 245 or 246…at one point, as Abbey kindly reminded me last week, I got up right around 250 and that was the point where I said …whoa!  So, with that in mind I have lost as much as 25 pounds so far….YEAH!  I’ve been a lot less strict about what I’m eating, but still (I think) staying in control.  I’ve had a few “binge” nights here and there, but that’s the real world.  I’m going to eat shit some days and others I’ll eat damn healthy – what I haven’t been good about lately is realizing that if I’m going to eat shit…I need to work out! 

Today, a coworker was talking to me about The Biggest Loser.  She said, “I really think that show needs to be on everyday because how can you NOT workout when you watch it?!”  I said, “Pretty easily..actually while Abbey and I were watching it last night we polished off about half a pan of rice crispy treats.”  Let me just tell you…these were some damn good rice crispy treats.  Like take the best rice crispy treats you’ve ever had…smoke a pound of weed…then smoke one more pound and that’s what these tasted like.  *I’m just assuming that would make them taste REALLY good…you know munchies and all…I’ll ask my neighbor next time – it’s probably what he smokes during his lunch break :-)  Point is this…I told myself…I’m good, we went on a 3mile walk today AND I’m going to do Plyometrics tonight so I’ll really sweat.  Abbey and I caught up on the DVR shows and working out desire went away. 

I DID wake up early and do 20 minutes of Interval X + which is a great workout; but it’s REALLY good in it’s entirety.  It’s really hard to wake up early and workout…especially doing a workout like Interval!  When I got home from work we went for a walk (about 1.5 miles); we cut it short since Abbey had already been on two 3+ mile walks today.  When we got home from that I grabbed the mp3 player, stretched and went for my run.  2 weeks ago I decided that I was going to run the Toyota 10K on Flying Pig Weekend.  A friend of mine gave me a small training schedule which I am loosely following, but my goal is to get up to a 6.2 mile run before the day of the event AND to complete it in less than 45 minutes.  Sunday was my first run…I ran almost exactly 1 mile – and I was pretty winded.  I also did it in just under 10 minutes.  On my run today I wanted to go further…so I did!  I ran to the Remke on Dixie Hwy…through their parking lot and back to my house – a total of 1.79 miles!  Almost an entire extra mile than I did on Sunday…that’s AWESOME!  The best news…I did it in 15 minutes which means that I’m averaging an 8.3 minute mile!  I may have found the beginning of my running mix too…First song – Bedrock “call me Mr. Flintstone, I can make your bedrock girrrrllll”….Second song – blah Blah Blah “people they talkin like blah blah blah”….I shuffled around found something I had never heard then struggled till I got to my Third song – Rude Boy “come here rude boy boy are you big enough, come here rude boy boy can you give it up” – good stuff. 

Running is so mental…if I can’t hear myself huffing and puffing like Cheech and Chong I don’t realize that I’m out of breath!  If there is music going I block out other noises and tend to think about the songs and anything else BUT the fact that I shouldn’t be able to run 2 miles!  Once I got home I came inside to check my time then went right back outside…the look on my face, Abbey probably thought that I was going to go out and puke…but I just didn’t want to drip too much sweat inside and it was really hot compared to outside.  Needless to say, to quote Michael from the biggest loser, “I was sweating like Tiger Woods in divorce court!”

When I look at pictures from Day 1 compared to this week…it’s a pretty big difference, but still some room for improvement.  My sister and my wife tend to think that I don’t need to lose anymore weight because I’ll lose it in my face and then I’ll look sick, but I disagree.  I have less than 20 days left of my P90Xperience (I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT) and I’m going to try and push as hard as I can to get to my “new” goal weight of 215.  To say that I lost 30 pounds in 90 days without a trainer or gym membership is something that I can definitely be proud of.  I still think 200 – 205 is where I should be and maybe I’ll get there someday, but we’ll see how it works out for me.  People have been asking me…”What are you going to do after it’s all done?”  Well – I’m probably going to eat 7,000 lbs of Chipotle, get a been burrito from Taco Bell and eat some damn french fries!  I haven’t had Chipotle in WAYYY too long and I don’t even know if my drive-in girl still works at TB since I haven’t been in 2010.  Maybe she saw my blog or facebook and got her teeth fixed!

What I’m really going to do is continue what I’m doing now.  I wanted to check out the Insanity videos so I’m sure I’ll do that, but my eating habits have changed.  Even if I have a “bad” night/day here or there – it’s not going to kill me; I just can’t have them EVERY DAY!  For the last 20 days I need to focus on the workouts and really push myself to cross that 220 barrier…I know I can – it’s just a matter of doing! 

I’m sure you just can’t wait to see them so here are my most recent pics compared to week 1…

The six pack wants to come out for the first time in it’s 28 year life.  Always diminished by the 12-pack…then the case…then the Keg!  Don’t know that it will happen, but all I can do is try :-)
Until next time…P90Xcuuuuuuuuuuse me!


Day 45 – Halfway there…

Ok – so how many of you thought that I had actually quit my P90Xperience? You haven’t seen a blog in nearly 2 weeks so I can understand why you would think that…I haven’t even made reference to it on Facebook, Twitter or Buzz (if you don’t know what Buzz is, you need to get Gmail). But here I am, telling you that I’m still going strong!

I’ll be honest with you…the first 30 days I was REALLY strict…no drinking (except Bengals playoff game) and no sweets. For some reason after day 30 I hit a point where I needed to give in a little and so for the past 15 days I have been indulging, but also while working out and still seeing results. I’m not going to be that strict for the rest of my life…especially with Cadbury Cream Eggs basically jumping out of their wrappers everytime I am at Kroger. The other day one was actually out of it’s wrapper just lying there…it was the biggest tease…so I bought one (a wrapped one). They are pretty much the most delicious chocolate candy that exists and the creator should be held on a pedestal. I wonder if they are soooo good only because they are rare..meaning I can only get them one time of the year…THANK GOD FOR EASTER, Literally!

I’ve snacked a bit more at night in the last 15 days and instead of eating just carrots and fruit I’ve actually been eating some jalapeno tostitos (amazing) and hummus. Abbey bought some dark chocolate hershey’s pieces and holy crap they were like crack. I couldn’t keep my hand out of the bag. She didn’t like the way the tasted so I couldn’t let them go to waste…I was able to limit myself on a nightly basis, but I helped her out the best I could. All of 2010 I have been slapped in the face with $10 pizza deals from nearly every single pizza place in the world – today I cracked. I wanted pizza so badly so we got Pizza Hut, thin crust with grilled chicken, tomatoes and onions – it was good – no stuffed crust pizza, but still good. I was surprised that one piece only had 170 calories, which for me is really nothing especially after working out. The snow here has really helped because I’ve been shoveling the driveway (sometimes twice a day) so I’m getting some different workouts in too!

I told myself that on day 45 I would treat myself to Chipotle – I’m debating since I had pizza today, but maybe this weekend…we’ll see. Next weekend I’m going to splurge on my eating since Abbey, the best wife in the world, got us tickets to see Jim Gaffigan in C-bus. We are going up for the night on Saturday so we’re going eat a great dinner and drink a few drinks to celebrate our two years together! What else can I get off my chest…I’ve been sneaking Chips Ahoy cookies since they are in the pantry and taste really good! 2 every other night or so…on average. Needless to say the last 15 days I have fallen off the diet wagon, but I’m still hanging on to the back – dragging in the dirt. Good thing my arms are so much stronger, I can pull myself back up!
The workouts have changed up a little bit since we last spoke…I started doing 2-a-days (3 days a week) with cardio in the morning and the normal workout at night, but that ended after the first week because with Isaac in the morning it was just too hard and too unpredictable. They got rid of Shoulders and Chest and replaced it with Chest, triceps and shoulders. Still a lot of push-ups, but not horrible nowadays. They also got rid of whatever was on Wednesdays and put in Back and Biceps. This is a cool workout, but I REALLY REALLY need to get some dumbells. Using the resistance bands just don’t seem to give me the full workout – I’ve been craigslisting; just hoping someone pulls through for me! John, whom I said was joining the P90Xperience with me, bought a pull-up bar so when I was at his house over the weekend I decided to give it a try. 4. I could do 4 F’ing pull-ups. Are you F’ing kidding me?! I do 15 with the bands and I could only do 4?! Wow!

The other workouts have stayed the same and I still haven’t actually done Yoga (the full way through), but my mom did buy me a nice Yoga mat…THANKS MOM! I HAVE been using the mat for Ab Ripper X which for the past two weeks I have finally been doing MWF (which is prescribed). I don’t know how they do a few of the moves they do, but I guess that’s the difference between having a keg and having a six pack.

I became a fan of P90X on Facebook and found that there are a lot of “success” videos on there. I watched one today and this guy’s 30 day results compared to my 30 day results were pretty different. He is about 2 inches shorter than me and 20 pounds less so that may have something to do with it, but still! I still can’t see the major difference in my body, but I know the change is there. Belts are loose and pants are ready to fall. I’m noticing muscles in my legs and arms that I didn’t know existed and I feel really good. I’ve gotten down to 226 so a loss of 15 pounds in 45 days. I’d say I’ve lost about 3-4 inches off my waist.

Here are my Day 1 vs. Day 43 pictures:

I have a ways to go still, but I’m getting there.  With 45 days left to go my goal is to lose 25 more pounds.  That is just over .5 lbs a day…it’s possible!  I’m not going to do anything dangerous, but I will start to be a little more strict on the snacking and sweets.  I’m very happy with the progress so far and I won’t be quitting anytime soon, so we’ll see what the next 45 days has in store for me!
Until my next post…P90Xfactor

Phase 1 – Complete…

Wow!  30 days have already gone by and I’m pleasantly surprised by the results, so far.  In 30 days I’ve pushed myself harder than any other time I’ve decided to workout.  In 30 days I’ve damn near gotten rid of my second chin and I started using a new belt hole (the last one.  In 30 days I’ve had my willpower tested to no end and I’ve stayed strong.  In the past it never mattered what kind of sweet was in the break room at work; if it was up for grabs it was in my mouth!  

Carrot Cake, Chocolate Cake, Brownies from Heaven, Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread, and others...

 

Everything looked good, but nothing in my mind said “You MUST eat some of that stuff” so, I didn’t.  And now, everyday I put my lunch in the fridge it sits between the carrot cake and the chocolate cake – a constant reminder of what I can’t eat…GREAT!  

Probably the biggest news…In 30 days I’ve dropped 13 pounds and currently weigh-in at 228!  

I’m still in disbelief that I lasted 30 days in my P90Xperience.  For phase 2, I’m even stepping it up another notch and I’m doing double workouts, three mornings a week – the morning routine is consisting of cardioX.  I like CardioX, but I hate that basically 15 minutes of it is devoted to Yoga.  If I want to do Yoga, I’ll put the Yoga DVD in my player!  This is a great way to start the day though (cardioX - not Yoga).  I get a really good sweat AND by the time my night workout rolls around I don’t even remember that I worked out!  I expect to see the fat slip off me like butta now that I’m in Phase 2 doing doubles!  

Did you hear that Pillsbury stock has been going down?  I got a call yesterday from the doughboy himself.  I couldn’t tell if he was crying or laughing – but then he got real serious and scolded me for not eating bread.  I told him what was going on but he just couldn’t understand.  I told him to poke himself in the belly button for me, I got a quick laugh and then I hung up the phone.  Me and Pills (that’s what I call him) used be real tight.  I’d eat his goods raw or baked.  Sometimes I’d take the croissants, bake them, and toss them in powdered sugar (delicious!) – but in the past 30 days…nothing; I feel our friendship is very strained and on the verge of extinction. 

I’m not saying I’ve been a perfect angel during my P90Xperience, but by staying 99% on track AND working out everday I’ve been able to sneak a few things.  I eat Ice Breakers, but to me they are nothing.  Abbey bought coconut covered marshmellows (WOW) and I pretty much ate one a day until they were gone.  NICE FIND AT MEIJER, ABBEY!  Regular mellows are really not all that great, I mean it’d be un-American to say that I don’t like them at all, but as a snack they are a no go.  These coconut ones…AWESOME!  I can’t even imagine what they would taste like on a s’more!  

I have managed to have no chocolate and not a single pop.  I’ve wanted a coke here or there, but having one isn’t worth it after I’ve gone so many days; more of an internal challenge than anything else.  I’ve had a sip of Abbey’s coke zero – it wasn’t that great…I need a McDonald’s fountain coke if I’m going to have one!  I had 2 slivers (and I mean slivers) of Servati birthday cake – holy shit it was amazing!  After I had my first sliver I just wanted to bury my face in the cake and do my best motorboat – I resisted since I don’t know how well Abbey’s parents would have taken that :-)  Sweets, I thought, were going to be my downfall but the protein bars and marshmellows have helped to curb any desire. 

My uncle is starting his P90Xperience this week (exactly 30 days after I started).  He hasn’t decided if he is going to follow the nutrition or not, but he’s leaning more towards just doing the workouts to see what they do for him.  He’s a FedEx driver so he gets a decent amount of exercise throughout the day – his legs are like mine (solid rocks) – but for some reason as solid as they are they still get a really good workout.  I can’t wait to see how well he does because when he puts his mind to something he goes full force!  

I am behind a day on my workout schedule this week so my day 30 workout ended up being Plyometrics.  After a recovery week (not doing any high impact/high intensity workouts) Plyo was TOUGH!  I pushed through and was able to make it, but DAMN!  I actually felt the aftermath this morning (not as bad as the first week) but it was there!  I have various new workouts throughout the week so it will be like starting all over.  

I have been surprised to find out how many people:
A. Know what P90X is…and
B. Are actually doing it (P90X that is)
That leads me to a poll question: 

 

Check out this site I found – I know a lot of people that mess up a lot of these words and I think this is something that everyone will benefit from: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/misspelling - the other stuff they have on that site are pretty funny as well.  The facebook one couldn’t be closer to the truth – I have an infant profile – GUILTY! 

Did you hear that Jersey Shore will be back for a second season?  It’s rumored to be set in SouthBeach.  I don’t think it will be all that great – it won’t have that same “wow” factor that this season had, but the cast doesn’t care.  They are going from a few hundred bucks an episode to $10,000/episode!  That’s crazy – for being a bunch of slutty meat heads they make $10,000 and get a free vacation home…F THEM!  I like Abbey’s idea for a reality show – Partying Parents – we’ll get drunk and party all the time with our kids!  (the kids won’t get drunk, they’ll act more like the parents should act) – at the end of the show we’ll all cry and realize how wrong we were and the kids will be so happy because they can live their childhoods and not worry about how their parents will get home from the bars!  Sounds like a hit to me!  

 

That’s all I have for now. 

Until next time…P90Xterra

Did you hear that Jersey Shore will be back for a second season?  It’s rumored to be set in SouthBeach.  I don’t think it will be all that great – it won’t have that same “wow” factor that this season had, but the cast doesn’t care.  They are going from a few hundred bucks an episode to $10,000/episode!  That’s crazy – for being a bunch of slutty meat heads they make $10,000 and get a free vacation home…F THEM!  I like Abbey’s idea for a reality show – Partying Parents – we’ll get drunk and party all the time with our kids!  (the kids won’t get drunk, they’ll act more like the parents should act) – at the end of the show we’ll all cry and realize how wrong we were and the kids will be so happy because they can live their childhoods and not worry about how their parents will get home from the bars!  Sounds like a hit to me!  

 

That’s all I have for now. 

Until next time…P90Xterra
