I just made a wedding-shape up training plan in iCal. I’m going to do the P90X in the suggested order but I’m going to substitute running for the cardio DVDs. I’ve consulted a few people who have done that and they said it worked out well for them. I was going to start the DVDs today but it’s just easier for me to start on a Monday so that’s what I’ll do. I am going to put them into the DVD player to get a general feel for what they’ll be like this weekend. I plan to take before and after pictures. I am hesitant to post them because right now I’m not so comfortable with how I look in a bathing suit and don’t want the entire interwebs to see me! But if there is a big change, I most post pictures for comparison. We’ll see.
I just want to say that right now I’m okay with what I look like. If my measurements are the exact same come June 26th, that is okay with me. I will not be upset or mad at myself. I am at currently at a healthy weight. I could stand to lose 10 pounds, but my BMI is normal right now. I’m not concerned with the number on the scale so much as I would like to gain muscle tone, especially in my arms. I don’t have much upper body muscle at all. Part of that is just my body makeup. I have a hard time putting on muscle in general. My mother also has no upper body strength. But another part of me is that since certain moves are very hard for me *coughpushupscough* I just don’t do them. I know, I know.
So that’s the plan for the next three months. If anyone wants to see my actual workout schedule, I can email it to you, but I can’t imagine that it’d be interesting! I’m eager to see how it pans out. After the wedding, who knows? Maybe I’ll train for another distance race again. After the wedding seems so far away, but like my half-marathon last weekend, one day it’ll just be a memory too. Weird.
After work today, Jason and I went to the gym. He has been diligently following the Couch to 5K plan and is on week 5. I am very proud that he’s kept up with it and am excited to run a 5K with him at the end of next month. I did 4 x 400 at 6.7mph with 3.5 walks in between. My ipod was completely dead when I got on the treadmill which made for a boring half hour.
We had TJ’s pizza dough in the fridge that really needed to be used and went back and forth about whether we were too lazy to make homemade pizza. There was nothing else in the house that I really wanted, so I decided to suck it up and make the pizza. It was worth the extra effort.
This pizza had tomato sauce, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, mozzarella cheese and spinach. Yum. I’m going to catch up on blogs and maybe watch a Netflix DVD. We have The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I heard it kinda sucks though.
