Mrs. Mango Head

Today began my 3rd week of P90X! Today is also Day 16 with me sticking to my strict GAPS Diet. 

How do I feel? AMAZING!

I did the Chest/Back + Ab Ripper X Workout today. This is my third time doing it and I can honestly say that it still absolutely kills me (in a good way of course)! I shake so much by the end of it, with my muscles capped out in fatigue. I try to do at least one more rep than the previous week. And this is usually all I can do! I feel stronger and in better shape, but P90X reminds me daily that I have a long, long  way to go! 

My stomach, mouth and all "those" problems have been nil yesterday and today! It is always that way almost exactly 2 weeks (to the day) after I start eating only the foods I'm supposed to eat. It is the oddest and most bizarre thing, but it's like clock work. People wonder why I hate to stray so much from my diet - that is why. Two weeks is a long time to deal for one "sinful meal." 

I suspected Tuna this week, though, of making me instantly bloated. I had it for lunch 2 days in a row. Both days I was in a lot of left-sided pain immediately. No Tuna for a few days. I will try it again and see if it is indeed a culprit. 

One food I have been eating that has been sitting perfectly fine with me is the Mango. In California we are so blessed with the amazing, year-round fruit. It's like candy. I ate a whole one yesterday and today! I am fairly certain I may turn into Mrs. Mango Head.


I am not too worried about becomming her, though, because the Mango is so good for you! Did you know that...
  • Mangoes are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper and Vitamin A?
  • One whole, peeled mango only has approximately 135 calories?
  • Mangoes are High in fiber and are virtually fat-free?

In final Saturday news...I am working on building my own website via a Blogging Platform. I am so excited for this new one! It will definitely have a different "edge" than this one: A "professional," Social Media, Branding and Marketing "edge." Stay tuned!

And as always....Cheers!


  1. Wow! Congrats on getting so far with P90X! I just started my P90X workout journey (check it out at my blog, TREK2BEFIT.COM) on Sunday! I'm really sore from day 1 of P90X, but I know I got a great workout.

    Are you a Beachbody Coach? I don't see anywhere on your site saying you are. Go to- for more info. Feel free to contact me about it.

  2. Hi Jonathan!

    I will most definitely check your site out. P90X is amazing if you want to work super hard! It's definitely not for the frail.

    I am not a Beachbody Coach. I like to just train "me!" All my best!
