DAY 42 of P90X3 Classic, Feb 9, 2014

DAY 42 of P90X3 Classicone more workout stronger than yesterday, thanks P90X3!

X3 Dynamix was so much harder today! I think my muscles were too stiff from the cold weather. I’m sure that means I really needed to do it. My abs and core are starting to feel a little more solid. I love my little girl, but her 10.5 lb self sure did stretch the heck out of me! And the sciatic nerve being pinched last March didn’t help either. Working my way towards greatness, one workout at a time!

Diabetic, prediabetic, or PCOS

And so my Journey Begins.

I understand that this is a real touchy subject that bit everyone is comfortable talking about in the open. Certainly, there are very few that know how these diseases have affected my life. I tend to be a private person, but I think it is important that people that have been affected by diabetes, pre-diabetes or PCOS reach the understanding that they don’t have to be hindered by it.

Now, let me preface this by saying, I am not a doctor, and I’m not sure that insulin dependent diabetic patients would be able to be free of insulin – but it is possible that the insulin dose may be able to be reduced. Certainly, the lifestyle could be greatly improved. I was never insulin dependent, what I was was insulin resistant. Yup. You read that right. Was. As in past tense.

In 2003, my first child was born after several years (since, lets just say 1999) of having sex with my partner. It took me 4+ years to successfully conceive … Continue reading

Yoga is Strengthening My Hip After Sciatica

Thanks Dynamic Flow Yoga!

listen to your bodyI love it when I go back to a workout and I am better than I was the last time! Such a great feeling. Doing Dynamic Flow Yoga is really strengthening and working my hip and inner thigh after a pinched sciatic nerve left me unable to stand on my own and put me in remedial physical therapy for 3 months! A lot of work to do still on my left hip and inner thigh, but progress is progress, and that is GOOD! HAD to FIGHT to get and keep the lunges on my left leg with proper alignment. Getting better! Take that, sciatic nerve!

P90X3 Update – Featured in Oxygen Magazine!

Lara McGlashan & P90X3 - featured in Oxygen

Lara McGlashan MFA CPT wrote in Oxygen Magazine about her success with P90X3:

“As a former fitness competitor and general workout freak, I was mortified to have lost my shape so resoundingly. But after a high-risk pregnancy and a divorce shortly thereafter, I was suddenly a single, working mom with a tiny baby and no time whatsoever to exercise.

Sounds like a cop-out, right? I used to think so, too. Back when I was a personal trainer, I used to give my new mommies crap all the time about skipping exercise, insisting they could absolutely find the time to do it if they tried hard enough. Yeah, I ate my words a hundred times over in 2013.

Fortunately, during my 15-plus years in this nutty fitness business, I have met some incredible people, so when seven months after having my baby I was still schlepping around 20 extra pounds, I reached … Continue reading
