P90X- Day 9- Distracted and a bit Frustrated...

Sunday, April 12, 2009

Ugh, I nearly pulled part of my apartment apart by using my resistance band on a unstable instrument.

So I'm having my dad come by today to help me install my pull up bar.

I'm a little distracted these days, I saw the movie Twilight and have a school girl crush on the way the main character- Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson looks at the character Bella.

I also just bought the first two books and can't seem to put it down.

I would love to find someone that looks at me the way he looks at her, not so much that he wants to drink her blood but just a frustrated yearning.

In any case, today is day 9 and I'm having some difficulty with the diet. Sometimes I can't eat enough just to get in my 1800 calories- it's a gastric bypass thing. Sometimes food just doesn't sit well and I can't keep it down. I end up eating a protein bar just to get in the calories and get the nutrition.

Also, it's a matter of following the guidelines of the diet which I find difficult and I'm hoping to find someone to clearly explain the things I don't understand so I can really do this right.

Wish me luck.

    Oh wow....that would be some powerful bands there! LOL Dads are great aren't they.

I loved the twilight series too. I am just about 2 chapters from finishing the third book. I liked it a ton better than book 2. A definite good read.

I didn't know you had gastric bypass? I am not that familiar with it, but i have heard there is a lot of guidelines and whatnot.

P90X- Day 5- I'll need all the luck I can get...

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

... to get up a flight of stairs tomorrow.

Everything will be hurting with a vengence.

I didn't just push it until it burned, it turned cold- my muscles were like numb blazing fire...

Gotta keep crushing play and putting my A- game on. Gotta keep pushing myself to the next level.

No giving up!!!

I can't believe I've done 5 days already! Wooo hooo!

On a side note, I ordered a few other things from Beach body...

the recovery drink, the protein bars and they're sending me some sort of cook book... which should be great, since I LOVE to cook.

I have to go my dad's house, which is an hour by train from me... and get an electric drill... so I can freakin' install my pull up bar. I'm staring to feel like a slacker over here with resistence bands instead of pushing it and getting on the pull up bar.

N E Who... waiting for them to figure out the issue with my e-mail address and then I can finally get online with other peeps that are doing P90X and get some questions answered.

Don't worry folks, let me know you're out there and I won't forget to post here!!

Show your love people! And tell me your story, I just love knowing how people are doing!!!

I'm sure you're all doing great!!




P90X- Day 4- Loose

Tuesday, April 07, 2009


X-treme Yoga, half of it I couldn't do but I sure do feel good.

I needed a break from the fast paced workout...

how did they know?

Feeling sleek like a cat right now, like I could fold myself into a bow. (not really but you get the point)


Pumping it up again tomorrow... and going to keep on crushing play!!



Day 3 of P90X- WOWY!

Monday, April 06, 2009

I really pushed myself today. I'm starting to realize why it's so effective and all the commercials show all these after pictures of people that are ripped.

When you start, you may not be able to finish a routine, or you can only do 2 reps...

then the next time you start feeling how much easier it is to do more or do a heavier weight, so you push yourself to the max each time, and soon... you're X-TREME!!

I feel pretty confident about doing this. Just need to work on my confidence every where else. I get looks from guys and in my head I think "I'm not there yet weirdo. Can't you see the excess 30 lbs and celulite?"

Harsh I know... but I guess it just goes to show that if you don't FEEL beautiful or handsome, don't matter what any one says... gotta find it from within.

My motto for the week:


Don't steal my line people... okay... steal it, but use it well... be the positive force that propels every one around you.

    Hey girl you look great, I just started Herbalife and so far after 2weeks on it i have lost 11lbs. I know it doesn't compare to you but it's a start lol. I have a shake and a hot tea in the am, a sensible lunch and the same shake and tea in the pm. I have snacks here and there as I need them but I like it. I've been working out 5days a week for at least 1hr. I feel great and I'm like most people I want results now. Well hope to hear from you.

Take care, Jay
