Thrive90 – Phase Two Done!

As promised, I am back with my results from Phase II of Thrive90. As I mentioned in this post, I spent most of Phase II with a sprained ankle. Therefore I was not expecting big results; I said I would be content to maintain what I had accomplished in Phase I. After completing my fit test and doing all the measurements, I found that some things were maintained, but there were some improvements. Yay! Even injured, I still made progress!

Without further adieu…

  • I lost a half a pound (not much change, but Tony said that could be due to me increasing muscle, which weighs more than fat);
  • I took another half inch off my waist;
  • I lost an additional inch from my hips;
  • My thighs are another half inch smaller;
  • My arms shrunk by a half inch as well!

So Tony’s idea that I may not have lost much weight in the numbers due to muscle gain seems plausible to me since I continued to lose inches. In fact, if I  add them all up from the beginning, I have removed 6.25 inches from my body! While it’s gone from different places, it sure does add up; and it will never be allowed to return.

My fit test showed improvements as well. Though I can still only do one non-modified push up, I can now do two additional sit ups. I know that doesn’t seem like a lot, but for someone who couldn’t do any at the beginning of this journey, it’s a marked improvement. My flexibility has improved enough that I can now extend my hands about 6.5″ past my feet. I suspect that when there’s less around the middle, I will be able to do even better at this. I’ve never had difficulties in this area. My Wall Squat improved from 10 seconds to 15 seconds; and my static plank went from 40 to 50 seconds.

I am thrilled to see these little changes! But I have to admit that I wish I hadn’t sprained my ankle; perhaps my results would have been better. I was hoping I’d be further along than I am. So, I will just have to do better in Phase III.

And so I press on…

* As usual, all opinions of Thrive90 are my own. I am the one completing the program and the results are 100% mine.

    Hey Heather, thanks for the notice on my linky. I think it is now fixed. WEIRD.
    I love what I see on Thrive 90 and I think I am going to do it. My husband is crazy fit. He is actually out doing barefoot trail running this morning with his “wolfpack” of guys. But I need to get organized. I did 2 cycles of p90x 2 years ago, but the time commitment was killer when I added homeschooling in to our day. So 30 minutes really???
    So since you are an affiliate and the first time I have heard of this, I want you to get credit. All I have to do is click through from your site? LET ME KNOW! THANKS! and blessings on your journey!

      HI Megan! Glad I could help with the link. I know I’m not ready for p90x yet, but the thrive90 is really just 30 minutes – and sometimes less! My husband is that way too. He’s training for tactical paramedic and trying to do a firefighter’s ironman. Sometimes he’s at the gym for three hours! I couldn’t imagine exercising for that long in one day. The guys who put together thrive90 are also beachbody coaches so they do p90x, insanity, etc. But they put together and produced thrive90 by themselves. They’re both really into fitness and marriage. Dustin (Catholic) also has a site called “engaged marriage” and Tony has a site called “one extraordinary marriage”(I linked to them in one of my thrive90 posts, or they may be in my sidebar as well). I am so glad that I found them a few months ago. Thanks for your thoughtfulness – and, yes, just clicking through to purchase it will work
