Day 52: Kenpo X (Phase II Rest Week)
Kenpo X wasn’t bad today. It felt good to get in a good cardio workout after a slow start to the week.
Although the workout was nice, I wanted to use today’s entry to blog about some thoughts on my expected 90 day results. I have been putting a lot of pressure on myself lately, and I needed to step back and see the bigger picture. I don’t want to doubt that amazing things are going to happen over the next 40 days; I have faith that they will! I have already had unbelievable results over the first 50 days. But today I realized that I am just at the beginning of a long journey.
When I started, I wanted to be ripped in 90 days. However, I ate fast food a few times a week and wasn’t active at all. I had a lot of body fat that I needed to drop. Half way through the program, I have dropped 12 pounds of body fat! I still have a little more to go. You can have the biggest muscles in the world, but they aren’t going to show through if you have the body fat of an “average” person.
I have heard that fat burns away faster as your muscles get larger. I hope this will push me to ripped in 90 days, but we will see… Maybe my first 90 days is just going to drop all of my body fat and get me to a realistic starting point for becoming ripped in round two. Maybe round two will push me over the edge. Would I be disappointed if this were the case? No.
Maybe I need to start looking at P90X from the Mayan perspective. I am only in the first cycle. What do I want to achieve in round one? What do I want to achieve in round two? Round three?
Tip of the day: Rome wasn’t built in 90 days. Be patient! This is the lesson that I am learning. I am really looking forward to blogging “Day 360 complete!”
