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|
|Difference||- 16.8||- 25.9||- 4.0||+ 0.25||+ 0.75|
Now for where the money is, here are my pictures…
And here is one that combines all angles from Day 0 and Day 93…
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.
