P90X3 Classic 2nd Attempt DAY ONE

Here we go, starting 14 hours late on the 2nd attempt. This is Day One of 90 which I think is 13 weeks. The blog entries should match the days. That has been an issue in the past. I expect it not to be an issue this time. Monday Dec 22, 2014. I will come back and edit this with the end date and such later but I wanted to start the blog now. We are not planning to do before and After pix apparently. I may go ahead and do measurements and pix tomorrow. I'm basically at the weight I originally started. 221lbs. But my waist is still smaller from dropping an inch or two last time. Pants I could not button until I got into the program before, still fit although I've gained weight back. So bodyshaping is happening. This program is intended to get my son moving all his parts mostly, we need a consult for him because of his shoulders at least. It is pending. And for me, it is part of my mission to get to 176 pounds. I need to get to 188 pounds before I reconsider my exact end goal but I need to get to 188 for a few reasons and extra muscle definition and such is fine but I will worry about that really only after I hit 188. Pix and perhaps video blogs to follow. Again.

Getting Old is for People Who Don’t Know Better

Tony Horton says in P90X3 (I'll look up which workout), that "Getting old is for people who don't know better." Here is an Outstanding example from Sam "Sonny" Bright, Jr., a Natural Bodybuilder competing in the INBF at least: Excellent article from the Daily Mail in the UK http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2559239/Age-state-mind-The-70-year-old-body-builder-abs-men-half-age-shame.html Augusta Chronicle link: http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/metro/2013-08-10/age-doesnt-define-70-year-old-bodybuilder INBF: http://worldnaturalbb.com/   Arthur's amazing story is a film: http://www.inspiredthemovie.com/   Amazing story of perseverance, fitness and humanity from Bodybuilding Champ, Mr. America Jim Morris:

Trans Fats

Coming.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Info coming.

Paleo Diet

I think this is what I'm migrating toward. http://www.paleodietsolution.com/book.html But after nosing around the internet and finding a food chart, maybe not yet. There is much conflicting advice on what to eat and I think most of it comes from the varying types of sources. If it is all natural and organic and GMO-free I think I have many options. I'm thinking Paleo filters out a lot that could easily not be natural/organic/GMO free. But P90X3, Paleo and Dr. Joel Furhman all seem to have great plans but they conflict. Furhman loves Beans for example.

Post Workout Nutrition

I recently posted this as a reply and may expand more info here later A good article on post workout nutrition, you need to eat Immediately after your workout: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/berardi4.htm

Visit their site and tell them Doug sent you. Better yet, go work for food! It is a great way to improve the quality of your nutrition and burn a few hundred calories. Maybe I'll see you there.

Food Babe

My Mom actually called me to tell me about the Food Babe. She doesn't use the Internet much so I had to track this down. It looks like she is doing some good work so I'll give her a plug and some encouragement. Rock on, Food Babe! http://foodbabe.com/ Here is a bit from her site: Vani Hari ‘s Professional Bio: Vani Hari started FoodBabe.com in April 2011 to spread information about what is really in the American food supply. She teaches people how to make the right purchasing decisions at the grocery store, how to live an organic lifestyle, and how to travel healthfully around the world. The success in her writing and investigative work can be seen in the way food companies react to her uncanny ability to find and expose the truth.

2nd Attempt: Joe Cross’ 3-Day Weekend Juice Cleanse

I'm on the 2nd juice of Day 2 of my 2nd attempt at Joe Cross' 3Day Juice Cleanse as featured on Dr. Oz. http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/joe-cross-3-day-weekend-juice-cleanse My last attempt aborted on the night of day 1. This time I need to go out of my way to thank my wife, who went to the store and bought the ingredients while I was working and then bagged all 5 juices for day 1. That was probably 75% of the work right there. Thanks, Honey! I will say that I HATE Ginger. It stings everything it touches... I don't really Like any of these nasty Grass juices but I lost just over 2lbs from Day one and that is important. I need to loose a lot more weight and detox and reset my palate... so I hope to make it through Day 3 this time. As a compromise, I have not been able to drink all of the juices each time. I have drank at least 75-80% of them though. I thought that, like P90x, it would be better to do it poorly than not at all. So 2 of the juices I didn't finish yesterday. For example the Pre-Dinner Juice made over 32 oz last night. I had to split it into 20oz and 10oz. I didn't measure them. I guessed. The next time I do this I will try to measure. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe even later today.
