P90X Day 43: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps + Ab Ripper X + Met a Team Member!

Woke up early today to get my workout in before heading out to Tines brothers (Mike) graduation party. I would describe the workout today as just alright. No major gains and this is one of the workouts that makes me incredibly frustrated because of my elbow.  This is also a workout where we need to buy a 10 pounds weight asap, The 5lb is too light and our weight set starts at 15 pounds which hurts my elbow on a lot of the exercises. So until we buy a 10 pound set of weights this exercise will probably just be mediocre.  After the workout we ate lunch and headed off to Mikes party. It was pretty cool and I got to meet a lot of Tines family that I haven’t met yet. One of them I met is actually somebody I coach, her aunt Susan. That was really cool meeting a member of Team “Lets Get Toned”. I can’t wait until I meet more member of the team and I hope they are all as nice as her.  I had sent her a sample of shakeology in the mail and she got to tell me how she liked it today. She said it was really good and all she only added half water and half milk with it, not even peanut butter. Hopefully she will buy it, atleast for a month to see how awesome it can be when adding other ingredients too it.  It would be really cool to hear how she feels about it and how it changed her health and energy levels after only a month of taking it, that would be really awesome. That is partly why I decided to be a coach, is to change peoples lives, improve their health, and to see the amazing tranformations that come from it.

One thing at the graduation party that bothered me was all the delicious food there that I couldn’t eat. Well I probabaly could have ate some of it but I didn’t want it to hurt my progress at all. I am really strict with my nutrition atleast for these first 90 days of P90X. I want to see the 100% true results so I can share them with you all. So as tempting as it was to eat some chips, cake, pretzels, I did not do it. I am very proud of myself for staying away from it all.

  1. It’s always great to finally meet someone that you actually coach. i coach a guy that used to go to our church and he moved away and he came and visited and it’s great to meet up with them and have something to talk about lol
