No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Good morning RF Sisters and Brothers,
It is going to be a scortcher out there. It is already in the high 90s at 9:00. This humidity is great for our garden. Our zucchini and summer squash plants are 4 plus feet high. Have had 12-15 zuccs 12" long and more. Snap peas are in and delicious. So, garden is prospering.
But the garden is not what I want to talk about. It is P90X weight training program. Has anyone ever heard of it or even done it? The reason I am asking is this. I was doing great on my weight loss these last 7 weeks. Actually, I was surprized that I had lost 10 lbs with only the food choices and not any real exercise. Some walking. But I know the exercise would increase the rate of weight loss. And the exercise is great for me. My daughter loaned me her P90X dvds. To say it is an exercise program is an understatement. WOW. It is a complete workout from head to toe. I have a friend who is doing it with me. (Actually, I have gradually converted her into a raw food friend over the past 7 weeks. She is going to join RFR.)
But what I noticed over the last two weeks is 2-3 lbs weight gain each week. I have added pea protein to my diet on the days I really exercise because they say I need to add protein for muscle recover. And believe me you are hungry when you finish these workouts. But I have not cheated on the diet at all except for the pea protein and that was not even ever day.
So, I have struggled these last two weeks with weight gain and not being disappointed with the gain because I was doing my body good and working out hard. Delicate balance to eat the right amount of protein and drink plenty of water and exercise and loose weight. I want to continue to loose this weight, and work out but I don't want to gain anymore weight.
Does anyone have any insight to this problem? Or has anyone ever done the P90X?
