Well, history did not repeat itself. I maxed out at 20:12. Those damn V push-ups get me every time! Still, I made it two-thirds of the way through the workout before I had to take a break. That says something, although to be honest I did take several breaks in succession once I finally maxed out. Again, that’s because they do a SERIES of V push-ups in a row. It is brutal, but I pushed through it the best I could.
I just realized I am a mere five days away from being halfway through this routine. When I first started, I didn’t see myself EVER making it through. P90 was too easy, and I thought Max 30 was going to be too hard. Yet here I am, still standing and in better health than I’ve been in for a long time. Notice I didn’t say I am in better SHAPE. That’s because my gut looks the same to me.
The gut has to do with the way I am eating. While I don’t go overboard with bad food, I know I could eat better. My plan is to start tracking what I eat in a food journal, then looking back each week and seeing where I strayed from healthy food.
One thing that is definitely going to make a difference: between my workout and going to wing chun class, I am going to start having my Shakeology again. This will help with the cravings I get in the evenings. And if I am hungry when I come back…well, I will have another!
