03/03/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Thursday

I wanted to give you an update on my P90X progress.  I’m in the 2nd week of month 3.  The first set of time ends in 2 weeks and we will retake the final measurements to see what the ultimate numbers will be.  I have been faithful to the exercise program regime and to the eating plan as directed in the DVD set.

I have been enjoying doing the DVD exercise tapes.  I didn’t like the pliometrics tape when I started, and now I rock it!  I have shoulder (rotator cuff) pain from the push up routine, so I’ve had to modify.  I cut out some of their push up sets and do chest presses or fly’s instead.  As I said one day last week I’m still impatient with the yoga because its 90 minutes and I get anxious to get my chores done, but I’m continuing the effort and hope I’m getting better.

Where we have had a parting of the minds is in the eating plan for this month.  They have pulled back on the protein and are heavily adding carbs, and not good carbs like sweet potatoes, quinoa, brown rice and whole wheat or Ezekial bread, but rather they have bagels, white rice, soft pretzels, fig newtons, and other food elements that I just cannot come on board with.  Why would anyone eat white rice over brown if they are looking for optimal nutrition?  Bagels have the same ingredients as paste!  Soft pretzels are loaded with salt and are just not what I normally eat.  I tried to follow their prescribed diet and I lasted 10 days.  I gained 2 pounds (and I don’t think it was from increased muscle).  I have spring break in three weeks and I have to put on a swimsuit!  I’m going back for the last two weeks to the eating plan that my trainer gave me after my cruise vacation that worked wonders for me and is nutritionally sound.

I’ll let you know the final results when I’m all done.  Bottom Line:  No matter what ‘diet’ tells you to eat, you have to have common sense.  If it doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t right for you.  YOU KNOW BEST what’s right for YOU!!!
