The start of our first transition week begins with day 22 and Isometrix. Having not previewed this workout I really didn’t know what to expect so I did a full dose of the Energy & Endurance pre-workout formula just in case. Once we got going I realized I may not have needed it. I generally only like to drink it for strength training workouts.
Day 22 Isometrix
When Isometrix started Tony began to speak about yoga and all I could think of was “OMG” more yoga! Once we got going it’s not technically yoga, or at least it’s not in my book. It’s a balance workout where we perform balance moves in the plank position and on one leg. It progressively gets harder as we move through the workout but it went by really fast. All the concentration focused on holding the moves took away from noticing the time on the clock.
A lot of people find Tony to pretty funny and he has his moments but I don’t ever really find myself laughing at his quirky jokes. Today he caught me off guard and I actually cracked a smile and may have even chuckled. During the “Inner Balance” we are to close our eyes and balance on one foot. While our eyes our closed Tony is saying there’s nothing going on here so keep your eyes shut, it’s just us (the cast) standing still closing our eyes. Well my eyes were open and Tony is doing kinds of corny, goofy dance moves on the screen that I could not help but to chuckle. Maybe I’m alone on that, but I found it funny. Well played Tony, well-played.

Day 22 Isometrix Nutrition
Back to work on a Monday in the P90X3 Challenge. Day 22 is not where we want to start slipping on our nutrition. As you probably know, Monday is my meal prep day. I prepped my food for the weeks lunch meals so I don’t have to worry about finding something at lunch in a pinch. My oldest daughter just loves seafood so tonight for dinner I prepared baked shrimp. She is not much of a protein/meat-eater but she eats up some shrimp. It’s nice having a variety of different protein sources day-to-day. On we go, stay tuned.
Breakfast – egg whites, topped with goat cheese, slice of whole wheat toast topped with strawberry preserves (8 oz. green tea)
Post Workout – Chocolate Shakeology, add whey protein and PB2
Lunch – Grilled Chicken, asparagus spears and brown rice
Snack – Pure Protein Bar, .5 oz almonds
Dinner – baked shrimp, brown rice, sweet peas
Snack – cottage cheese topped w/ strawberry preserves
Yours In Success,
