Day 36 P90X, Test Day

I hopped on the scale this morning to see what the damage was... 193... I LOST 2 lbs! What is strange is that my hands are swollen with water retention (I ate A LOT of salty food yesterday). I am drowning myself in water this morning because I cant stand the feeling. I am just wondering if I am going to see an even bigger weight loss tomorrow morning after getting rid of some of this water?

My juicing idea fell through yesterday. I did drink a lot of juiced apples, oranges, grapefruits... today I need to do the veggie part of that. I have a ton of carrots and celery that I need to get rid of. With all that juice, I'm not really sure how I am retaining water today. Must have been the beef stew and crackers that I indulged in for dinner.

Today is test day. Just thinking about it is making me nauseous. I know its going to be a killer workout...but I also know that I have to fight 3 people- AT THE SAME TIME.. that has me shaking a little. I am pretty sure I will have a nice array of bruises this time tomorrow.


Today's Plan:

Core Synergistics - 60 min
Tang Soo Do testing - 90 min

Focus:
WATER, WATER, WATER... WWIB

Good luck with your test tonight! I can't imagine doing any of that. I am way too big of a pansy.

Two pounds down and you feel bloated? If you stay away from carbs and salt today and tonight, I bet tomorrow you'll see an even bigger loss after your tough workout tonight. YAY!

BTW, I saw an infomercial for P90X this weekend. Man, that looks intense! I love the idea, but there's no way I could consistently do an hour+ of working out a day. I wish I could, because those people looked amazing. You're getting great results... You'll have to send in pics to them after you reach 90 days!

Great blog! There’s plenty of useful information and motivation. I’ll definitely be back. Check out my blog at Http://www.realfoodforlife.blogspot.com . I’ve been juicing for years starting with a “Vitamix” in the 70’s to a “Juiceman in the 90’s and love juicing’s benefits. Recently I found a ready to mix "Instafresh" powder that has 30 fruits and berries, 30 super greens and vegetables, 11 nuts, seeds and sprouts all in an easy to mix, delicious, organic concentrate that has 83 Active Enzymes and Minerals and 22 Resilient Living Probiotics. It's absolutely the best raw whole food supplement on the market today. Great for people on the go! And all for just $1 per serving! Now that's juicing for the new millennium! Just read the label and get a sample like I did at Http://www.urilife.com/realfoodforlife/products.html I think you’ll love it! And yes, I still make a fresh carrot, apple, parsley juice cocktail in my home juicer and I freeze the carrot and apple pulp for fresh carrot cake!

Grace and Peace,
Ed

Good luck with the test!

Best you get that celery in, it's extremely hydrating! And now you've made me crave carrot juice. One would think that I would have had enough juice by now, but I still have a lot every day!

Just catching up on your blog.

Having to "fight 3 people" is totally bad-ass!!!!

Nice job on the loss too.
