Start of the P90X Diet Program
Sunday night was the weigh in, to get a “starting weight” and measurements. I am using http://www.fitday.com/ to keep track of everything. (Not sponsored, by the way). I chose that program because I did a google search for a free tracking program. I was looking for one that would track the weight and measurements, food diary, exercise log, and allow comments, etc. With my most recent health issues, I need to track a few things for my doctor, and this met all the criteria, so I picked it.
I’m not doing the P90X exercise program for a variety of reasons, mainly because my specialist doesn’t want me doing ANYTHING right now, until we get some symptoms resolved. I am still having the lip swelling (Angioeadema) and swelling in my feet and hands, so she needs me to keep a food log and comments so I can notate if I am having any swelling, etc. so we can try and pinpoint anything that may be causing it. I need to include a few specific foods to make up some deficiencies and eliminate a few other types to see if symptoms improve, so that’s another reason for the log. I chose the P90X Program because it gave me something to follow that most closely meets the requirements set forth by my specialist.
So, what do I get to eat each day?
- 5 Proteins
- 2 Dairy
- 1 Fruit
- 1 Fat
- 1 Carbs
- 3 Snacks – Single, Bar, Drink
- 1 Condiments
Monday morning I weighed in, and I was UP 5 pounds. It was quite discouraging.
Tuesday morning I weighed in, and was DOWN 10 pounds from Monday, so 5 overall. That is encouraging, but it also shows how much my weight is varying day by day with the swelling, etc.
