Hello to all that are getting fit with p90X or thinking about it! Yesterday was day 10 for me and it was not that bad, of course I had a few exceptions. . . . Anyway, yesterday was shoulders and arms workout time for me and I have to say with in a week I am seeing a difference. Instead of grabbing my 5 pound weights for some of the intervals I ended up using my 10 pounds weights (which are still a little heavy) for the workout. I was shock to see how fast muscles strengthen within one week. I initially started with the 5lbs and I did not feel a challenge at all, yey!! This means I am getting stronger!! Did anyone of you start to notice this in your second week? I am amazed! The other thing I am amazed is that I made it all the way too the bonus round, but I was fatigued by then, so I stopped and cool down in order to prepare myself for Ad Ripper X . . .
Ab ripperX. . . Hummm. . . Okay, I heard on youtube that this workout was only 15 minutes longs, so I was like yeah! I can handle that! It should be a breaze, right? Wrong! OMG, the banana boat and other combo came back into myself again and I was cursing at the screen, lol. The workout in very intense and I made it through half the workout to realize that my core need a lot of work. I did not realize how weak my core was. So, next time I pop in this DVD I will be ready to work at it much harder. Am I the only one that could not make it through this DVD the first time around? I feel like a weakling, sad day. . . But you know me I will keep at it until I get right. for sure!!
My meal plan for yesterday:
Breakfast: Bisquick heart smart pancake (very small portion size) grapes/blackberries, turkey sausage with sugar free syrup and water
Portion Size of each pancake
Lunch: On the go (busy day) Meal replacement drink, orange and water
Snack: 1 serving of grapes, string cheese and water
Dinner: Lean Cuisine, orange, salad (not pictured) and water
Snack: 100 calorie pack
That was pretty much my day yesterday. Today I am moving on to yogaX even through its a challenge I am still going to do it! Thank you all for the encouragement and I will continue to “Bring It”
