Welcome!
Be real, be honest! Be YOURSELF!!!
"We're ALL struggling, and YOU are worth struggling for!"

Hello.
My name is CoachDebbieTudor, DebbieT for short. I am a Team Beachbody Emerald Coach. The adventure you are about to embark on may be one of the most difficult challenges you will ever experience. Although the work is hard and the commitment is relentless, the rewards are plentiful and amazing. Whether you are looking to lose weight, tone up, or just get healthy, the keys to your success are arming yourself with KNOWLEDGE and owning it by being ACCOUNTABLE.

ABOUT ME

I started my "WELLNESS" journey in October 2006 at 49 years young. I was carrying 220 lbs. on my 5' 6" frame. I knew I did not want to do a starvation"DIET", but I needed to slim down, I knew Exercise alone would not get it done so I had to develop a nutritional plan that worked for me. I spent years working on it by taking classes, researching and experimenting. During those years I had a bizarre upper body and brain injury and ballooned up to 308 pounds. I was crushed in a car crash, and my body was sick and depressed and broken. I discovered the magic formula that gave me back my energy: Shakeology!!!! Once I got on that, my weight dropped right away, 13 pounds the first month and then I added some exercise back into my routine and another 52 pounds vanished and then another 35 and that made me 100 pounds lighter from 308 down to 208..... Still too heavy but feeling GREAT!

Up until now I've done Beachbody programs one after another for several years to earn my body, I've proven myself strong in 2Tough Mudders and a Spartan Race, and this year I even did LES MILLS COMBAT and PUMP and dropped another 25 pounds. Currently I am doing Shaun T.'s new program: FOCUS T25 and I am in the best shape of my life, But still getting better. I am well physically, reaching for higher goals and lower weight, but more importantly, I've gotten mentally, emotionally, and spiritually stronger, better, wiser. These routines will change you on the outside, but even better they change you on the inside, something I was not prepared for but LOVE and cherish that improvement with open arms!

What to do now?
How about joining me with your routine or mine: the toughest, most intense 25 minute workout ever put out on DVD: FOCUS T25.

I'm 5 days into P90X and this 53 year-old body is tired! But I guess doing a mountain rocky trail marathon two days prior to P90X didn't prepare me much. Doh! I'm hoping to lose the 10-15 pounds menopausal weight gain from the past three years through P90X. I've always eaten good (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proten (little meat, mostly eggs and vegetable protein sources), but still struggle with trying to lose that weight. I also exercise like a crazy woman: mountain biking for days on end, whitewater kayaking, Stand-up paddle boarding, organic gardening (carrying, lifting, throwing, turning compost, manure and dirt), and now P90X. The extra weight makes me crazy. I get really confused reading all the varied "ideas" of weight loss through diet... including the P90X nutrition program. The only weightloss that ever worked for me was 1200 calories or less, recording every morsel of food that went into my mouth. 1200 calories isn't enough to maintain strength for P90X and endurance sports; thus, I can't lose an ounce. What a struggle! If anyone has suggestions, I'm all ears.

More Calories Needed to Repair and Refuel with P90X
10/16/12 3:56 AM as a reply to jillwiest.
All ears, huh? Sounds like you are all about moving and grooving! LOVE YOUR ENERGETIC ATTITUDE!!!!
Listen, Jill, this menopause thing is a tough tackle to pin down, (get a good pharmacist to help you with some of that) and I have already been through it so you have my deepest sympathies. emoticonemoticon
There is a silver lining, however, to these very real changes. To get it, though, first forget about starving the body, and continue to make each morsel count nutrition-wise now more than ever!

Let me invite you to revise your thinking if you are still into the 1200 calories on P90X. The math does not add up!!

When the body is under stress, like yours is much of the time with your various activities, and definitely now while you go through P90X, it NEEDS fuel to repair and even more to build muscle. You'll not turn fat into muscle, you need protein to build muscle. And maybe some creatine supplementation *)emoticonemoticon Definitely try the Results & Recovery Drink, you will love how it keeps you from being QUITE so sore!

More calories give you better results, & help you avoid the ever lurking nemesis to older atletes: INJURY
emoticonemoticonemoticon

VEGAN, vegetarian or carnavore.... you have to get enough protein. Read and follow the Nutrition Guide that came with P90X, it is GREAT!

Have you noticed the Eat Smart Tab above? Do you use the Meal Planner tool? Let me know how you feel at the end of Week Two!!

10/16/12 5:52 AM as a reply to DebbieTudor.
Oh thanks Debbie... good info. No, I'm not doing the 1200 calories because I feel super-terrible eating that little. Yes, I've been watching every morsel... in fact today's tally is looking awesome: 122% of RDA of iron, 68 grams protein, 170 g carbs, 33g fat, 89% of calcium and 36g fiber in about 1400 calories. I may eat an apple and fat-free yogurt too to hit 1500. Recovery drink: I use OJ and hemp protein and that first week I wasn't doing anything post-workout! No wonder I was sore and tired. Now that I added a recovery drink after every workout, I'm feeling much, much better. I'm not a whey protein fan, so no P90X recovery for me unfortunately. I'll take a look at the smart tab.

Yessirree that protein post workout helps keep the soreness away!

You are up to Week three by now, right? You're getting warmed up and growing some lean beef! How are the wrists????? All the push-ups, etc. I broke down and got the assists (love em!) and also bought some gloves with grippy palms to keep from sliding on the DDogs! Are you able to do the pull-ups without chair assist? You're already pretty fit pre-X, right?!?! I still drop back and use the bands from time to time depending on how my elbow is that day, or if I want to really focus on form in other ways..... Modification is a beautiful thing! So, tell me about your workouts, fav moves... anything you despise or love???

Even for me at Round Four, I found this a challenging workout.....
Balancing ACT not to feel starved and fatigued throughout, too! Don't even get me started on getting enough SLEEP!!!!!
emoticonemoticonemoticon
So you are experiencing some of that yourself are you? emoticonemoticonemoticon

Loved it when I finally got into Phase Three... see the biggest improvements.... just before Day 90!!
When is your completion Day?? New Year's Eve???? Then what's next???

10/25/12 4:51 AM as a reply to DebbieTudor.
This is to also share with fellow 53-year old gals. YOU CAN DO IT! Heck, if I can, anyone can.

I'm finishing up week 4 and about to start Phase II on Monday. After the 1st Yoga session and trying the Crane, my wrists felt like they were going to fall off. the 2nd week was better and this week I successfully did the Crane with no toe touches AND the wrist pain is gone.

Favorite workouts? The weights - all of them. There's something that feels pretty darn good after a good dumbbell workout. I feel strong - love that feeling. Push-ups are like a little contest for me and I try to see if I can go down further and do more of them. I'm up to 207 but still need to get lower. Pull ups: still can't do a single one without the assist. Will work on that. I sometimes use the lat pull-down machine (I have one in my basement) and really jack up the weights.

I was semi-fit going into this and I looked at this as an enhancement to my other activities which are: stand-up paddle boarding on whitewater (P90X is helping tremendously with balance on the board and paddle strength), mountain biking, trail hiking, organic gardening (3800 sq ft of vegetables/fruit gardens). But I really wanted to lose that menopausal fat but I'm wondering now if that will happen with all the fitness building going on. I feel awesome, just not skinny yet.

Gals: I didn't start moving (other than the occassional walk) until I was 41, vowing I'd be in the best shape of my life at 50 and I was. Now I'm working on getting more fit and less flabby by 60.

JIL: OMG!! You are so right!!! You are living proof! Stand-up Paddle Boarding on White Water!!!! You are my HERO! (Heroine??)
Kudos on reaching phase 4, wish I could say that about my wrists, but I still struggle with them. Did you say you were up to 207 Push-ups!?! Awesome! Sounds like you have some great conditioning going on there!

Surprising to me was a Canadian study showing only 1 in 10 women over 50 participate in physical activity as little as ONCE a WEEK!!!!!
What in the world???


The study also cited study after study suggesting that intense physical activity, sports involvement and conditioning training was the "fountain of youth" (Reversing many diseases). Lack of activity more so than number of years was the main reason for typical "old age"

I am joyfully enjoying my active "senior" life of intense sports and so glad you are, too!!! You love the weight-lifting (dumbbells). Have you ever done the barbell? What do you think of the Les Mills workouts? Are you familiar with any of them personally?

Hopefully you'll reach your ideal body-weight goals, (meno inducedemoticonemoticon) but doesn't it feel great to have some extra muscle???
You are probably right abut the body building trumping long and lean.... emoticonemoticon

I can only hope we inspire other gals to get out and get moving. Enter a 5K gals and start walking/running to finish it! I helped two girls at my work finish their first 5K and they were soooo excited to have made that accomplishment. YOu can too ladies.

Yesterday I burned 3,287 calories in an Adventure Race. It took me and 3 other team members 6 hours and 22 minutes to finish an 18 miles mountain bike ride, 3 miles of paddling a raft, 6ish miles of hiking/running to rocky vistas on top of mountains, crawling through a 25 yard culvert, climbing up and over a rope ladder and several answering quizzes on regional history. We had a blast, but it wasn't easy. 3 of us cramped from lack of training in a specific leg (for me it was bike... for the other two it was running).

Yes girls, I'm 53 and did finished this. You can too! If it's something you have been "thinking" about doing, stop thinking and enter the event and just do it. YOu'll be sooo glad you did. Look how much fun Debbie had at the Tough Mudder. Enter one! You'll love it. Fun, fun, fun. And that's what movement is all about -- having fun doing it.

Jill: What you and Debbie are doing sounds like so much fun!! I know Debbie trained by doing many cross country runs and that sort of thing, but I am not the P90X type. (However, I have done Yoga X and like it!) My preference is the full Yoga Booty Ballet Series and many of the Shaun T Hip Hop Abs workouts,( especially Take it to the Floor) and more recently Brazil Butt Lift (Leandro is my favorite trainer!!)

All of my life I've enjoy a completely different sort of fitness world, that of dance. It is my passion and I love sharing it. My background is in Ballroom Dance both as a competitor and an instructor and other kinds of movement, but with the fluidity factor front and foremost.

That being said, soon after becoming an over 50 adult, I added weight training to my workouts and highly recommend it! Kathy Smith Project:YOU with weights was an early choice, and later ChaLEAN Extreme. My church has a weight room and in the afternoon I can have it quite nearly to myself! I prefer working out at home, however, and looking over the Les Mills PUMP, with the music and dance and weights, it will be perfect for me!

In the Summer I do Aqua Fitness in my outdoor pool, but indoor pools are not my thing at all!

I am more likely to enter a dance contest than go get muddy or ride a bike like you gals, but I admire anyone who takes joy in expressing the movements of our body. It is gift to us and showing pleasure and respect for that gift is an honor back to God.

Keep up the exciting enjoyment and continue to have fun. Most of all, stay healthy and young at heart!

Kathy you are soooo spot on, "I admire anyone who takes joy in expressing the movements of our body." Yes, dance is an incredible workout and admire those who do it. It's graceful, beautiful, yet powerful and uplifting. There are tons of other activities and competitions that folks can sign up and do and I know I couldn't even begin to touch on half of them. The key is, like you said, to have fun and move.... even more so when the half century birthday hits. keep moving girls!

emoticonemoticonemoticonApplauseemoticonemoticonemoticon

I did have FUN at Tough Mudder, and it has taken me the month to get rested... I am on Day 23 of Brazil Butt Lift as a way of active recovery, and I have started a program of Marathon Running Training so that my next event will be more successful. I am taking a Functional Fitness Test next week with a Trainer that works with the soldiers at Fort Gordon whom I met through this Beachbody coaching network.... Very curious what sorts of things he will test, but I am making a resolution to get in touch with all my "numbers" this year, and plan to get a pulmonary function test done as well on the 12th.

Growing Old takes smarts and and I don't want anything stupid to get in the way of all this FUN I am having.

You might like this story.... After the event I went to my Internist complaining of an ear ache in my LEFT ear. He found nothing the matter with it, but said I had a "something " in my RIGHT ear.... Scheduled an appointment with a specialist. Well, the specialist asked me if I used anything in my ears to protect them during the Tough Mudder, and told me the something in my ear was a small amount of the swimmer's wax I had used to protect my ears, nothing more. (That bit of information set me back a $50.00 co-pay! But he said that a Q-Tip would not hurt my ears if used carefully, and advised me to use one after my next race!)

Well, I am excited to think about my New Year's Resolutions and get my 2013 Calendar mapped....... Any suggestions???????

Triathalon! Super challenging if you've never done one - especially if you can't swim. They are a reason to learn to swim.

Ultra hike. Even with little training, you can hike 20ish miles in a day.

Stand-up Paddle Boarding. Challenging +. Many places now rent boards for you to try it. You can put your P90X yoga and core work to use.

Learn to Ball room dance. If I had this close to my home, I'd do it.

Rock climb. The indoor climbnasiums are extra fun too if there's no outdoor facility to get you on the ropes.

I like your idea of thinking about next year already. I'm still trying to get through this year! The last phase of P90X is on tap for the next 4 weeks and then I'll likely repeat it in the near year. My one resolution (that I'm sure of) is to buy me and hubby a 1-year membership to the local YMCA. We both used to go, then stopped after retirement, but both miss the weight-machine workouts and treadmills/elipticals/trainers, etc. So I'm taking some of my money earned from a part-time gig the past few weeks and getting us a christmas present.

I am 48 (close enough to 50, right?), overweight, athletic (I know they don't go together but it's true), 4 kids, 5 dogs, an inlaw, and a husband, E-I-E-I-O.
