A Year of Results
What a year it has been! I know I am not quite there, but it’s ok. I must say that the journey this year has had its highs and lows. I didn’t finish the year off as strong as I would have liked. Old habits die-hard and I didn’t have exercise to back me up for the last month due to a knee/hamstring injury I have been nursing.
Nutrition and exercise work hand in hand, but I really needed to put the fork down at some points!! LOL. However, I am not discouraged! I have lost 53 lbs this year! Whoohoo! I know I can get to my goal in 2015.
Thanks to everyone who had helped support me this year. You likes and comments really kept me going and I appreciate it so much.
PiYo To the Rescue
I started doing PiYo and though it’s different from what I’m used to, I love it and I NEED it! I feel like I am getting strong with it. I still get after workout pain, but it doesn’t last and I feel more loose throughout the rest of the day. I sweat a lot doing PiYo which is an amazing. It really is all about building strength and flexibility to help you with other workouts, running and athletics. I see the beauty!
Weight loss: 53 lbs. down!
Waist: 7.5 inches
Right Arm: 3.25
Left Arm: 2.75
Right Thigh: 5.5
Right Thigh: 5.5
(total inches 28.25 – WHHAAAAHHHTTT?)
What I Have Learned
I have learned that I am a strong woman who can over come the obstacles before me. I have a drive and laser like focus when I’m working out that is pretty crazy! I have truly learned to love the challenge! It’s almost like an addiction that I’m ok with. haha I have done some things in my workouts that I have literally watched on TV and said, “Chyah, right!” This year I was doing them.
I learned that even though I have developed some great habits, I still have a lot to overcome because old habits like to creep back up on me from time to time. I have also learned that support and accountability is so important and though I started my journey without it, I couldn’t have gotten this far without it!
So the journey continues.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR HELPING ME THROUGH THIS JOURNEY!! My fitness journey for 2015 will continue on JN Welsh

All the best,

P90x3 – Week 3 and Transition Week
WTH (cleaned up version) Tony Horton! LOL. I sound like Katt Williams!!!! Week 3 went well. I didn’t feel like I was 100% nailing the workouts but I felt overall improvement. Then transition week hit and I am in a constant state of soreness. Legs my friend, no matter how much I try to stretch it out and hot shower massage it, feel like someone beat the $h!t out of me from my knees to my chest!
This is a good thing! I AM WORKING and literally shredding the muscle.
Weigh In & Stats
When I take my measurements, I am still not sure I’m doing it in the exact same place and let me tell you an inch makes a difference especially on thighs and arms. So, this is what’s going to happen. I’m only going to take these measurements once a month like suggested. I will keep posting the weight loss every week.
Weight: 1 lb (loss)
Waist: 1/4 inch gain
Chest: no change
Right Arm: no change
Left Arm: 1/4 inch gain
Right Thigh:1 1/4 inch gain ?? (see what I mean)
Left Thigh : 1 1/4 inch gain (obviously a location issue…lol)
A Really Good and Quick Chicken Recipe
So, you know that I go all in with my workout and nutrition. Well, P90 was recently released. P90 is going all the way back to the beginning to help introduce people to extreme fitness. You can think of it as a precursor to all the P90x workouts. I was on Tony’s page and he had a video for a really quick meal that I really wanted to share because it was so fast and easy and looked tasty. Check it out.
