Here I am again, attempting another round of P90X with a bit of modification.
A lot has changed since I last posted here. New house. I’m engaged! I’m fat!
Yeah, it’s bad. This whole new house with a fiance that loves to cook combined with the “holiday season” added about 20 pounds over the year. I do not look good… observe!
- Weight: 195.6
- Body Fat: 32.4
- Chest: 42.5″
- Waist: 43.5″
- R Bicep: 15.5″
- L Bicep: 15″
- R Thigh: 25.5″
- L Thigh: 25.5″
See! Fatty McFatterson!
Well now I’ve got a legitimate goal to shoot for. I’m getting married in May… on a beach… with cameras. Time to lose to flub (again) so I can all of those pictures sitting on the mantle for years and years to come.
I haven’t been working out in some time. Something like 4 months I think? I’ve done a few 5Ks but just for fun. As a result, I don’t have a whole lot of things hurting me going into this round. That’s really saying something for me nowadays. In the past I’ve fought shoulder, wrist, forearm, knee, and groin pain while attempting to do my workouts. Gotta keep that from happening again.
I’ve got my fiance, Marilyn, on board too. She’s a great cook and will be cooking me plenty of healthy meals. She’s already looks fabulous, but she’s going to diet with me out of support. How’s that for love? I’ve started her a blog that we’re still in the process of building over at FairlyFitFood.com. She’ll be posting lots of healthy P90X approved recipes as well as fun stuff for little cheat meals. 🙂
I was also allowed to convert part of the garage into a home gym that’s suitable for P90X, Insanity, Light Weights (no bench), and all sorts of cardio. I’ll be putting up a separate post soon showing what it looks like and how I was able to get gym quality flooring on a budget!
