For the last couple of months I've been telling myself that I need to start working out again. Well, that day has come and I will start another session of P90X and Insanity! I've completed both of these workouts, P90X three times and Insanity once. I will say that I did see really good results. However, I didn't have results like the people on the infomercials. I've figured out the reason why I haven't been able to get those results, my diet.
The first time I did P90X I didn't eat well all the time. I did start eating oatmeal with bananas, strawberries, and kiwi each morning. But after that, I was a constant customer of fast food burritos (my favorite). I figured eating burritos was sensible and help me get the protein I needed. I was wrong. While I did see muscle gain in my arms, chest, back, and legs, I still fought with excess belly fat). That's been the one area of my body that I've struggled with (I refuse to use those belly fat burning supplements. So each time I started a new program, I would less fast food and tried to add in more fruits and vegetables. I saw increased results after completing each round of the workouts. Needless to say, I was in the best shape of my life (still not at my ultimate goals) when my son was conceived. I really think that had a lot to do with how big and how healthy Marcelo is.
I haven't worked out at all in 2013 and I have regressed in my fitness. So the plan now is to combine both P90X and Insanity. I'm going to start off alternating workouts each day. But eventually I want to get to the point where I'm doing Insanity in the mornings and P90X in the evenings. Also, I need to make sure that I'm eating properly. I know that's gonna take a lot of work and dedication, but I'm up for it!
