Guess what day it is? It’s day 28! The last day of week 4 and the 1st block of the P90X3 Challenge. I’m excited to begin a whole new schedule of workouts. From the look of the schedule the weeks in block 2 looks to be a bit more strength training involved.
Week 4 In Review
Week 4 in the classic How long does it take for prednisone to work schedule was the transition week. This week was to slow down and let the body regroup in preparation for the next block of workouts. I really enjoyed week 4 except for the Pilates X workout. Only 2 out of the 6 days my calorie burn was more than 200. So you can tell from that statement alone it was a slower week. The was a lot more emphasis put on stretching, core and focus than the weeks before. I understand the point of the transition week but for me I would have preferred to keep going full steam ahead, but I’m sticking to the schedule as it is put down.
Week 4 Nutrition
I continued keeping my nutrition in check for the week, but the weekends is still the most difficult time for me. We like to go out as a family and occasionally eat out. I’m still working on making better choices when we do go out to eat. Another thing I’m working on is portion control. Restaurants like to give us so much food! It’s way more than any one person really needs in one sitting. It’s just weird to leave food on your plate that you have paid for, so we take some home for another meal. Do you clean your plate or take some home?
Week 4 In Conclusion
Even though this is a transition week I’m glad it’s over. I was making really great progress in the workouts before we started week 4. I just hope I didn’t lose any steam I had gained. I’m really looking forward to the 2nd block and the new workouts. I’m sure they’ll be easier than block 1 right!? The 2nd block add workouts called “upper” and “lower” and I know what that means, sore days are coming! Being sore means making progress so I’ll take it. Block 2 here I come….
