There was no weekend recap yesterday because I only took one picture over the course of the weekend.
Long story (with no pictures) short, I was in San Francisco over the weekend for my boyfriend’s sister in law’s baby shower. It was interesting talking to other moms (and moms to be) about having kids. Bottom line-not sure if I’m ready yet. Luckily, that’s not on my radar at this point in time. On the other hand, baby clothes and baby related things are ah-dorable.
The one photo I did take was of my outfit for the USA v. Portugal game -
I love any opportunity to whip out these shorts. Was anyone else devastated by the draw? It felt a little like a loss.
So there’s my weekend in a nutshell.
Since I don’t have a weekend update for you, I’ll make it up to you with a P90x3 update.
As you know, I started P90x3 about 30 days ago (read my first post here). So how am I doing 30 days later?
Great! I’m really surprised that I’ve stuck with it this long and I haven’t skipped any workouts. I had to switch around a few days due to travel and fatigue (I’m still running too), but I did ‘em all!
Now what you really want to know-do I see a difference? Well, the answer’s a bit complicated.
Here’s the visible differences 30 days later-
As you can see, there aren’t that many visible differences, just a few here and there.
The real differences are in my measurements and my overall strength. Here’s how my measurements stack up from day 0 to day 30.
|Start||30 Days (inches unless otherwise noted)|
For the first time ever, my left and right thigh are somewhat close to each other in size! This is huge for me because I suffer from muscle imbalances that came from rowing in college that then transferred over to running. Apparently I really like my right leg.
My arms are also the same size, which leads me to my biggest gains so far-upper body strength. When I started I could do about 7 (ish) push ups without stopping, but now I can do 20+ consecutively, which is a huge for me.
I know a few of you are wondering if I’m following the nutrition plan or if I’m doing this to lose weight. The answer is no. I’ve made a conscious effort to cut back on my unconscious snacking, but I eat a pretty clean in the first place, so this wasn’t a problem for me. The problem was getting into consistent strength training, which P90x3 has really helped me accomplish 30 days in.
I’ll report back in another 30 days-stay tuned!0
