P90X Weeks 12 & 13: The Homestretch and The Grande Finale


P90X Logo Weeks 12 and 13

Week 12

I was really happy to get to week 12 because the end was in sight! Not that I don’t like working out, but I was looking forward to a little bit of a less strenuous workout routine. I worked hard and ate clean week 12 but I only lost half a pound, I guess to make up for the two pound loss the week before. I found the last couple of weeks of working out the easiest, I guess I was getting pretty conditioned to the workouts.

Week 13

The last week is a recovery week and I took the recovery a bit far… I only worked out once the entire week. In my defense, I came down with a nasty cold and was also out of town for part of the week. I still lost a pound, so I was happy about that.

The final numbers:

    Inches Lost:

    • Waist: 2 inches
    • Hips: 3 inches
    • Chest: 1 inch
    • Right Arm: .75 inch
    • Left Arm: .5 inch
    • Right Thigh: 1.25 inch
    • Left Thigh: 0

    Lost 8.5 inches total

    Lost 11.5 pounds total

Overall I guess I can’t complain too much, however, I was hoping to lose a little more off of my waist and also a few more pounds. I am still 4.5 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight. I can wear a lot of my clothes, but some of them still don’t quite fit. In hindsight, I probably should have done something more cardio based to get rid of the extra fat and then P90X to gain muscle.

I would definitely recommend the P90X DVD’s, I plan to do another blog post recapping what I learned along with suggestions and what I think would have helped me do better. I am so happy that I made it through the entire program and I’m looking forward to using some of the workouts in my regular workout routine.
