p90x Lean Wk 1 Day 5

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Kenpo was tonight!

I was looking forward to it all day! I got caught up doing some home stuff, then grocery shopping, then while putting away all the produce, I realized I had a bag of spinach there looking not so fresh.

So I decided to do a cream of spinach with it. And of course I've never made cream of spinach before, so it took me a while. Before I knew it it was 10:30 pm.

It didn't matter, I was already in my workout clothes so I just headed to my bed room to do kenpo. But I was feeling a bit tired so I rushed thru the warm up. Yeah...big mistake. Half way thru the workout my legs were cramping up. So I had to stop, because I was really hurting.

I stretched and it feels better now, but I don't think I'll finish the workout.

Tomorrow is a new day, and I promise I'll NEVER skip any warmup moves!

ps. I LOST 1 LB!! YEAHH!!! :D Just wanted to share that :D

P90X Lean Wk 1 Day 4

Friday, January 29, 2010

Today was fun! First of all, I only had like 3 loads of laundry to do. And the last one, hubby helped me put away. No mopping, or anything :D! And also hubby did the workout with me. He is doing p90x also but he's going at his one routine. He also runs (like 2 hours like 3x week) so he uses p90x as his strength training.

So today we did Shoulder's and Arms. I love it! I think it's my favorite of the weights videos from p90x. I am sincerely too lazy to do the ab workout today. :S. I know bad. But I am admitting to it and it will not push me back. Also I tried to engage my abs all through the strength training.

Today was good eating day. I went almost vegetarian today. No meat, well just a bit of turkey bacon and bits of sausage with the Boston Baked Beans (chef_Meg). They are delicious! First time I made them and I am in love! I'll be making these often. Specially since they are done in a crockpot and I love that.

Anyway, it's late. I got my energy level up from my workout, but I still got to shower and get ready for bed so I better get going. Good night my sparkfriends....

PS. I think I got my SP Mojo back!

P90X Lean Wk 1 Day 3

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Today I didn't work out. BUt I don't feel bad about it. I got home around 1 pm. And since I got home, I cleaned, cleaned, and cleaned some more. I only sat down for lunch, for dinner, and for banking i had to do. Probably like 20 mins each.

My back hurts, I am so tired. It's not the same cleaning a 2 bd apartment to a 4 bedroom house. Let me tell you....its QUITE a difference! And my home is all tile, so sweeping and mopping all the way thru!

Also did some laundry....(still not done, but that will be tomorrow).
So I will take today's cleaning as workout!

Tomorrow is yoga, but instead of yoga I'll be doing todays workout, strength training!

Good night everyone! snack, then heading straight to bed :D

    Congratulations on getting so much work done! WOW! I think there is something under cardio called heavy cleaning so you could track it under there. :) I am never sure what is considered heavy so I just divide how ever many hours I did in half and count it like that. :) Keep up the amazing work and keep on Sparking!

Tuesday, January 26, 2010


Wow, it was fuN! I love it because it has a little bit of everything. THe Yoga was killing though! I am so out of shape but not giving up! After I finished the 45 min. of Cardio, I decided to do a bit of zumba, I couldn't finish the 20 min. I did like 12 mins of it. But hey, it was all extra.

I figured I would try to blog everyday. This will keep me on check. Tomorrow is a new day. I'll be lifting weight tomorrow. I haven't done that in SO long!!!

P90X Lean Wk 1 Day 1

Monday, January 25, 2010

Today was my first of P90X Lean. I didn't feel like working out. Stress and problems, bills, etc....all that stuff came to my mind. But then I opened my SP and I had a comment with a wonderful quote from SPOTLIGHTANGEL. And it opened my eyes.

Everything is in my hands. Whether I decide to fail or succeed. Today I decided to succeed. After reading her comment I got up, and changed clothes and started my workout.

My first workout was Core Synergistics. It used to be a good workout for me, but totally doable. Today, it was so hard. I only completed about 35 mins of the video. I was starting to feel miserable and like a failure for not being able to finish it, but I remembered the quote, got up (from my mat this time), and put on a 20 min Zumba workout. I was already warmed up so I dived right into it. It felt so good to dance. It's so liberating.

Anyway, total workout today was a little over an hour. I feel great. I put my son in the bathtub, I'm having a snack (banana and water), cleaning up the kitchen, putting away some clothes and shower and then bed. Tomorrow is a brand new day. And I will make it count.

Thank you Ashley!
