The good news is...

I've had a great week! Today, I actually did all 10 full body crunches without touching the ground! It's my first time doing it in seven weeks. When I first started P90, I was touching the ground after each full body crunch, so this is a personal feat for me :) I'm definitely enjoying it! I have five more weeks of P90, and I'm hoping to continue with great results.

I went to Curves on Monday, and I found out that I have lost a total of four inches (3 from the hips and one from the chest area). Needless to say, I was very happy! I went to see my primary doctor on Wednesday for my physical. I was definitely worried about the results. I have a family history of heart attacks or strokes, so I'm trying to get into better shape to fend it off. 

My doctor had some great news for me. My Triglycerides went down by 50% since last year, and he said that was excellent. He was very proud of my dedication to P90, and I'm going to start doing P90x in January. I have a follow-up appointment in April to see where my cholesterol levels are after my next phase of exercise. My total cholesterol level went down by 10 points, and I 'm hoping to lower it by April. 

Anyways, I just wanted to share the good news. Happy Thursday and good night!
