Fitness Challenge Setback

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Today would be day 16 of the P90x 30 day challenge but for a problem with my T.V. My video's will not play on my computer or my T.V. I went out to the store to buy a new DVD player to only find $30 later that it isn't he DVD player. It is the T.V. My T.V. is undoubtably old but why would the video function stop detecting my DVD player? Everthing is hooked up properly, plugged in properly but nothing, no picture.

I am very disappointed and I am not sure what to do. To add salt to the wound I uploaded wedding photo's of my sisters wedding this last weekend and I was very unhappy with my physical appearance. I need to figure this out. Too many things going wrong at once that I have to invest in (TV, Car). The hole point of P90x was that it wouldn't cost me anything. Now it will.

My frustration level is an 8 out of 10 today. Deep Sigh.... emoticon

    ((hug)) Trouble always comes in threes doesn't it? There are also tons of fitness videos on Spark and on YouTube that are free so you can still get a work-out by using those.

Day 14- FITNESS CHALLENGE - almost halfway!

Friday, March 15, 2013

14/30 day p90x challenge.

Workouts this week were mentally easier then week one. The workouts are hard but a little experience goes a long way. It is time to incorporate better nutrition into the mix.

I feel as if I need to exercise now to feel good as oppose to chill out to feel good. My one rest day a week is good enough.

It is also easier to stick to the program as I travel since it is easy to throw the videos in my bag and do the workout where I go.

My rating of p90x is 8 out of 10.

Day 11 - FITNESS CHALLENGE- challenginggggggg

p90x - 30 day fitness challenge - Yoga x

On a scale of 1-10 today I feel about a 5. Not feeling myself today. Sick to my stomach, tired, chills/hot...ick.

I climbed stairs at lunch today for 30 minutes...slowly, but still painfully. I can not belive how hard climbing stairs can be, especially when I am feeling clamy.

I did 45 minutes of the 90 minutes of yoga before I just crapped out. I don't feel good but really that just gave me an excuse. I am not overly happy wiht myself today. I am not 100% disappointed either...I just know I can do better.

We all have our days and it is just one of them days...



Day 10! -FITNESS CHALLENGE- Milestone:)

P90x- 30 Day Challenge

Yes, yes, yes I am 1/3 of the way there! I feel good about what I have accomplished so far. Today was round two of Arms & Shoulders and then Ab Ripper X. I stepped up the weight for my arms. I definatley need to get more weights for variety purposes.

As Phil from Duck Dynasty would say "Happy, happy, happy"...

Day 9- FITNESS CHALLENGE- It's Routine

Sunday, March 10, 2013

P90x- I am now in my second week of my 30 day p90x challenge and I am in the routine. Mentally, working out an hour plus a day strangely gets easier when it becomes part of the everyday routine. Everyone around me knows that I am going to consume the T.V. for at least 1 hour a day.

It also helps to put some walk to all that talk. I don't know how many times I have said "Starting tomorrow..." This repetitive proclamation then lack of commitment has yielded a lack of faith in my word. However, by day 9 of consistent effort to stick with the program, I have started to restore that faith.

What I look forward to is the question "wow, you look great, how did you do it?" I am not sure people like the answer which is inevitable "I consistently worked out and watched what I ate"...

After 9 days, my pants are a little looser. Small successes equals a happy girl...Looking forward to posting my before and after pictures...
