Operation Size 16: The Beginnings

Morning everyone :)

Woke up bright and early this morning to get the stats and pictures done before my workout.  It was cardio day, which is one of the shorter days, so I had a little extra time :)

First up the pictures.  So the jeans go on and zip up.  But as you can see- they are not ready for prime time yet.  Too much muffin in the pan for me and I have too much junk in the trunk for these to leave my house...



And here are the stats:

Weight: 236.8
R arm: 15.5
Chest: 40.75
Waist: 33.75
Belly: 45.5
Hips: 52.5
R thigh: 30

This is my starting point this month...I am so excited to see how these numbers change.  That leads into the challenge this week, which is to PUSH.  One of the things that is very different with P90x than I am used to with cardio only challenges or a classic weight lifting program (where you are in a gym in a rep based program instead of a time based lifting situation) is that I have had a harder time figuring out how to push and get results.  I think I am starting to figure that out because I'm pretty sore today from yesterday's chest and back + ab ripper x workout.  And I need to continue it and really push.  It was easier to figure out the push level for chest and back because it's push ups and pull ups mostly.  It will be harder for shoulders and arms tomorrow but I am determined to figure it out.  It also means for cardio, sometimes not listening to Tony's cues (this means you Kenpo X) and going at a speed and pace that gets me that hot sweaty mess look that I want.  If the goal is to move the dial, then the plan has to be intense enough to get the results I need.  So let's go!  

What is your area to PUSH in this week?  Leave it in the comments :)
