Day 71-77

I can't believe I'm already at day 77. It seriously feels like I just began the program last week. Time has gone by so quickly! Lost another 2.9 pounds this week, bringing my total weight loss to 13.8 pounds since adding Weight Watchers to my P90X program a month and a week ago. Things are going very well!

The sunburn is nearly gone and doesn't hurt anymore, so this last week was much easier for me. The first couple of days was KILLER, but it soon disappeared and I was able to totally complete each workout. I did have to cut out some yoga last week because of time constraints, (it was the Miss Woodstock pageant last week. I'm on the pageant committee so it was a very busy week for me!) but I got in the first 45 minutes, which is the difficult part. I just cut out the stretching. I took Saturday off instead of Sunday because it was my boyfriend's birthday and we were out all day long, and I was so exhausted yesterday (Sunday) that I almost decided not to exercise, but I felt guilty and thought to myself, "You've come all the way to day 76 without missing a day and NOW you're going to skip? I don't think so!!!" So I did it around 11 PM even though I was exhausted and had to get up for work at 3:50 in the morning. Afterwards, I felt great and proud of myself. Sacrifice is necessary and brings great blessings!!!

Core synergistics is FINALLY getting easier. It still kills me every time, but I'm feel like I'm really getting somewhere with it. It's a beautiful thing! Also, my resting heart rate has gone down 8 points. Not only am I looking better, but I'm becoming healthier. I feel better and better every single day, and I'm loving every moment of it.

I'm finding that eating all of my points is harder than I had imagined. I keep hearing that eating them all is important and that if you don't, you'll end up plateauing or gaining. That happened to me last week. I hardly ate all of my points each day and didn't eat all of my weeklies or any of my activity points and I ended up gaining a little bit. Bummer, but that's the way it goes. This week I made a point of trying to eat all of my points and look! I lost. Still... it's hard. I get fuller easier now and I feel guilty after eating. This weight loss thing is an ongoing battle, but it's one I'm determined to win.

Today (day 78) is Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps. Can't wait to kill it!
