Congratulations to me! I’ve made it through the first 4 weeks that is Phase 1. I am just a couple days away from the official Phase 1 weigh-in and photoshoot (not a real photoshoot… just my wife taking the pictures). Now, to be honest, I could be a little disappointed that I have not lost as much weight as I initially throught I would by now, but I truly am not. I wish I was a few pounds lighter, but I can fit into cloths I couldn’t fit in just one month ago. I can also where my one and only suit, and look good in it. I’m proud of my progress, even if my “numbers” may not suggest much.

Challenge

This past recovery week, as much as it did employ 2 yoga sessions, 2 Core Synergistics (R) sessions, and 1 cardio workout, was still a rather chill week. The lack of high intensity strength training workouts was a good break for my body. The issue however, could be getting back into the “Bring It” mode that is so essential to significant growth. I’m not too worried, but I know it will be a change of pace that might take a few days to get used to again.

The Reward

In all my past attempts at P90X, and throughout this last attempt, I’ve never really felt confident with Yoga X (R). I love the concept of the workout, but performing, especially at over 250 pounds, is tough. This past week I had to do ti twice, and I was sure the second time around it would be a mess. To my surprise, I noticed that my strength in certain poses was much improved, and my flexibility had also experienced gains. I started to really enjoy the different poses and looking forward to the next one. Needlesss to say, I can’t wait for Yoga X (R) this next week.
