Training - P90X - Day 10: Arms and Shoulders

I have been dragging big time this week. Too much going on right now. Plain and simple. My alarm went off at 4:22 this morning and I feel back asleep to awaken at 4:54 having 6 minutes to get to the Y.

I made it one time or close to it.

The workout today was good. I like this workout as it really gives the arms a push. I made some large strides since last week. Last week I remember thinking that I was maxing out and here I was this week going above and beyond and quite a bit in some lifts.

This is what I needed for a midweek workout.

My legs are sore from running on the treadmill yesterday, but my abs are not as sore from the Ab Ripper X as last week.

The hardest part I think is eating. I am tearing up the portions and keeping the carbs at bay(I am on Phase 1 so trying to shed some body fat for my Racing Weight goals). However, my cravings for carbs are crazy. The minute I get home my body starts to salivate for chips, pretzels, candy, etc. I know that it is the effect of a bad habit. I have another surge of cravings after dinner from about 7:00 - 9:30. I keep fighting it hoping it will eventually go away, but so far it has not. Yes, I make a snack of protein or fruit and vegetables, but the cravings don't leave me alone. But I have been doing good with the eating so hopefully I will have some good results by the end of the week.

Here is my workout for the day.
