A better solution would be the following: create a text cell and enter something like "Previously we calculated the value of X1 to be ", then insert an inline cell (ctrl+9, I believe). In the inline cell, enter "Dynamic[X1]", select and evaluate in place. The inline cell, although it appears inside of a text cell, will automatically update to reflect the current value of X1. The previous solution only captures the value of X1 at the time of evaluation.
