P90X Results – Round 1 – Started July 27, 2011

I finished a round of P90X…

For those of you who don’t know me well, let me explain why that is such a profound statement. It isn’t that I don’t like working out, it isn’t that I don’t like P90X, I love working out and I love P90X. What it means is that Mandy and I have been able to make enough changes in our lives that have allowed me to take the time to complete P90X.  I recently (June, 2011) started working at ConocoPhillips in their Bartlesville shared services location. Previously, I had owned my own company Two Miles Solutions, LLC and we lived in Madison, WI. While I still own my own company (I still do custom WordPress plugin and theme development, we have our first commercial theme releasing soon) I am no longer working 12 – 16 hour days like I was before. Previously when I had tried to start a round of P90X (I made 3 attempts prior to this) I would get about 30 days into it and then work deadlines would loom and I would have to stop because when it came to a decision of workout or sleep after/before working 12-16 hour days, sleep always won (as it probably should).  Anyway, that is all behind us and I have been able to focus on my health which is something that I have set out to do for this entire year.

First the numbers:

Note, that I had to take Day 93 measurements and pictures because we were travelling and the original pictures

didn’t turn out (too dark, taken in a basement)

  Weight Weight from Fat Waist Bicep Thigh
Day 1 334.4 136.4 50.0 15.75 25.75
Day 93 317.6 110.5 46.0 16.00 26.5
Difference – 16.8 – 25.9 – 4.0 + 0.25 + 0.75

Now for where the money is, here are my pictures…

Overall, it was a great round. I was still finishing up some work for previous customers so there were days where I had to skip workouts, but I really enjoyed the workouts and the transformation  I am starting to see in my body. I took a week off and just did Cardio X for 3 of the days, then I started a new round on November 1, 2011 and am continuing the journey. I’ll keep you up to date with my progress.

    I’m sorry, not trying to be mean or rude… but it appears your might have not followed the diet plan or kept up with the exercise routine. Found this blog by searching “p90x results” and thought yours was a bit off.

    Kudos for wanting to improve your fitness, but you should really try it again and adjust your eating/drinking habits, as well as take the workouts a bit more seriously.
