Day 19 takes me to my third time at the CVX workout. It’s crazy but this is by far my favorite workout. And I know I’ve mentioned that already but it is really a great workout. These first 3 weeks in the P90X3 Challenge have been incredible and I’m glad to be back on the side of momentum. 30 minute workout is perfect, you’ll find yourself pushing harder knowing that it’s only 30 minutes to get it done. Making a 30 minute workout almost more valuable than a 60 minute workout.
Day 19 CVX
My plan this week was to increase the intensity on each and every workout. So far I have done this and felt great. Well today I woke up extremely sore and a little tired. Not sleepy tired, maybe just a little worn down. It’s most likely my body trying to adapt to the new lifestyle. Like I said earlier I really enjoy this workout and wanted to up the intensity today but just wasn’t sure I had it in me to do so. This is only the third time we have done this workout and the first 2 times I started the workout with an 8 lb med ball only to need to drop it and go with a 5 lb dumbbell after a few minutes. I knew what I needed to do today, go for it with the 8 lb med ball all the way through. And you know what? I did it. It was hard as hell and I found myself stopping for short breathers but it was worth it. In the end I finished with almost 500 calories burned in this CVX workout. That’s the most to date in any P90X3 workout. It’s unfortunate but there is only two more times in the rest of the P90X3 schedule that we hit CVX, but I’m sire I’ll find another favorite workout to enjoy in the meantime.
Day 19 CVX Nutrition
Friday begins my combat with the weekend and eating out. We go out as a family to Chick Fil A on Friday evenings and I have to be very careful not to get too much junk. I do go ahead and get a chicken sandwich and fruit cup and sub the soda for water. Hey, it’s not the best but it’s what works for me. On a typical Chick Fil A evening I’d order the large combo meal, with fries and a large soda (and a refill). So it’s better than my usual so I’ll count it as a win.
Breakfast – egg whites, topped with goat cheese, slice of whole wheat toast topped with strawberry preserves
Post Workout – Chocolate Shakeology, add whey protein and PB2
Lunch – turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, cup of strawberries
Snack – Pure Protein Bar, .5 oz almonds
Dinner – Chick fil a sandwich, fruit cup, water
Snack – .5 oz almonds
