Finally we started late on Wed, finished Total Synergistics for Day 8... and moved straight into Agility for about 3mins when we had to stop for food and then finish a Double but I fell asleep after we cleaned up and we are still behind. Next week there will have to be no compromises and we need to get this knocked out at 5:30am and move on with the day. We expect we can finish out this week by Sat.
Tuesday my son and I got caught up helping his brother prep for an event at his Tattoo Studio later this week and then FORGOT we had Scouts that night so... no double and we are now really behind again.
Circumstances conspired to slow me down on Monday and my son had a lingering shoulder injury so we skipped Mon Day 8 as another rest/heal day with the intention to do a double on the following day, Tues to catch up.
After finishing Day 6 on Sat night, I took "Sunday" off and did not do Dynamix.
Sat June 13 I finished the Warrior but I got some type of stomach virus and could not update the blog. I also could not finish Sat night or even Sunday with Dynamix as planned but technically I'm on track and I think I jumpstarted the week and I don't think my illness is exercise-induced. More likely it was Satan working to throw me off track. He's been busy since about the time I met Leonard Wayne (http://leonardwayne.com/higherhigher.php) and read his book. I recommend anyone to read his book. It is great and very consistent with my experience.It is one of those books that anyone could argue the author should not have written because it is not primarily flattering to Leonard. It is a great, instructional read in my educated opinion. And God has blessed me as well with what was likely 2 miracles shortly after Leonard said a prayer for me over the phone. I need to keep a Journal or a Diary. Anyway, Praise God and I'm hoping to limp through Total Synergistics today to stay on track.
As per Day 1, we did two workouts so this is just a post to keep the blog posts consistent with the workout days. Day 4's blog post has the Day 5 record/log/info.
For today Thursday 6.11.2015 we again accomplished two workouts back to back. I don't think we have a prayer of doing 2 weeks this week as we are using doubles to catch up for Mon/Tues. We appear to be a day ahead now as we have finished Friday's workout on Thursday. The plan is to do Warrior on Friday and then on Saturday we may hit the gym but we will go ahead and take Sunday off and try to start like normal on Monday and see what happens. This was ugly but we are off to a good start. I'm hot and sweaty right now. I know I burned off some Goo today! I'll duplicate this post to try and keep up with one post per workout to help me keep track.
Last night on about Wed 6.10, maybe after midnight so it was technically Thursday 6.11, we did Yoga. Not pretty, but we go through it.
For the sake of having one post per workout I'll link to the first post here as it recounted 2 workout days done back to back and now I have 2 posts to match up with having done 2 days of P90X3. 😀 Post of Day 1 and Day 2 linked here.
This will be the 3rd Attempt to complete P90X3. It will succeed sort of. There will be a summer vacation in here for my son and whatever else but we will press on. Early Wed Morning June 9th approx 1:30am my son and I started over. It was sort of Tuesday... so we did 2 Days back to back to get through "Monday." Tomorrow on Wed we may attempt 4... to finish this week in 6 days... good thing they are 30mins more or less and I would not try this except that the function of P90X3 for us is to get us into better shape and if we are in better shape later I'll call that a win. So we did Total Synergistics and Agility immediately after. Oddly I was less tired and felt better after Total Synergistics and finished Agility. Form was bad but probably better than some who did the programs for the first time. So we are off to a good start trying to get into better shape. NOTE: I would not attempt to do 2 or more programs in a Day except for the fact that after 22 years of Martial Arts training and having been through 13 Weeks of Basic and AIT Training in the US Army I have some familiarity with exercise. Even so, I can't do some of the moves and I don't know why. And I'm too Fat to do some of the moves... but I modify as needed. I still personally would not feel comfortable doing this program without a trainer to ask questions of like I asked my Kenpo teachers in class when I didn't understand any exercise. And my previous instructor Brian Duffy is a Triathlete and knows how to exercise. He's also an International and World Champion. 😀 So sloppy as it may have been, I have restarted. I expect to do a Lemonade Cleanse for at least 3 days during this run and at least a 3 day Juice Fast like I've also done before. I also expect to add a 1hr Gym routine a few times. A gym routine I developed that works all the muscle groups for a total body workout leaning on the mass building side. So I don't expect to do P90X3 as advertised following the itinerary (and unfortunately not the meal plan either) but I will go through every workout in order. Hopefully at least 8hrs apart whether I sleep between them or not. I expect I can do the last 30 days as outlined, meaning 1 workout per day for 6 days in a week. I am convoluting the workout because last time I think I made it to Week 10 with no significant weight loss but my measurements and body composition did change and have stayed changed. Pants I fit into back on the 10th week still fit. My waist may have even shrunk a bit more, but I have gained weight lately. I seem to be able to fluxuate up to 7lbs in a day or two. I am not sure how accurate my scale is. I thought 2lbs might be explainable by water and salt but again I'm not worried about right now. I hope this year that my business will also improve so that I can spend the time to compete in at least one point Karate tournament with my son and earn my 2nd Degree Black Belt in Ed Parker's American Kenpo. And I will remind you that this blog was originally intended to show future students at a future commercial Martial Arts school when and how I did P90X(3). I do not expect that to happen in the future and if this blog gets deleted later you may remember that I said this and that will mostly likely be why this blog disappears. But partially to create even an artificial accountability partner/system (my son is also my partner in this) I am keeping this up as even the prospect of some public scrutiny may help motivate me. Thanks for visiting.
