Week 6 Completed and on to Week 7

I am very ready to call the half point. I suppose that will be tommorrow.
For last week's report, I had to toss one cardio session. Went to Atlanta for Dragon Con, a sci-fi convention. First time I've ever done that. It was a blast! Seeing that I walked from dawn to midnight each and everyday, I don't think missing Saturday's cardio was that bad. Also, I got in three good runs last week on top of the P90X stuff.
And since we didn't get home until late Monday night, I'll probably miss another cardio. I won't miss any of the weight workouts.
How the program is coming - not too bad. The Phase II chest, shoulders and triceps is too advanced for me to complete as presented. The last three pushups I have to revert to gritting out regular pushups on my knees. My arms are complete toast by the half mark. My forearms are wrist are really hurting. Hubby found me pushup bars which are helping.
My weight is the same. I noticed that I actually have triceps the other day. How bizarre! I've always been fairly strong for my size, but the muscles don't show. I can see biceps when I flex and (gasp) triceps.
My posture is still improving. I'm working on getting my shoulders back all the time. Strange how something so simple is hard.
What I need to work on this week is diet. Mine's been, well let's say kindly, not on program. Need to work on that.
