Fitness with P90X (Day 37, 38 & 39) Update

This week I am feeling wiped out! I don’t know why? I am thinking that it is that time of the month and my body is challenging me. Also it has been a busy work weekend too being that it was valentine’s day weekend. So when I got home from work (retail/makeup) I was beat down! I am not kidding. If I had to say this is one weekend I was tired of makeup, lol. Anyway when I returned home I just wanted to rest, but I worked out anyway even though I did not want too, lol.

It was 9:30pm on Sunday night when I decided to do CardioX from the P90X program. It was late, but it got done and I am happy with that. The only down side is that I could not fall asleep right away which is not good because I woke up Monday morning and I was tired! For real! My son had school yesterday even though it was president day, so I was up at 6:30am, yikes!! Got him off to school and when I return home I was getting breakfast and myself ready for work in the afternoon. I was attempting to do the Chest, Arms and tricep DVD, but I was not feeling myself so. I stopped it to avoid not getting the full results of the workout and opted to have my rest day early this week and will continue the workouts as planned.

So, I guess my point is life does get in the way at times when you are trying to stay on point with the workouts, but the great thing is that you can always get back on track when you are ready and feeling well about it too!

With that said today is Day 39 which is week 6 for me and today workout will be Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab ripper X (not my favorite still) My poor tummy is going to burn tonight. My plan for today so that I am not to full from my dinner before working out is to eat my dinner a bit earlier today. So, at work I plan to take advantage of my break time and use it for once. I get a 1 hour lunch break and two 15 minute breaks, so I will have my lunch as usual and then closer to the end of my shift I will take a 20 minute break to eat my dinner at 5:30pm. This will help me out so by the time my workout time comes when is at 8pm after I get my son to bed I can get my workout in without having a full tummy. Remember, DO NOT workout on a full tummy. You will get sick, believe me I know.
