P90X, day 3

Sunday, November 14, 2010

I have had this program sitting on a shelf for a few months now, the plan was to start right after Insanity. Well, that was in March and this is November. I obviously got derailed... ;) So the months went by and somehow I find myself 2 pounds heavier and on the verge of being one pant size larger. Oh, HELL NO.

I am running 100 kilometers a month, strength training twice a week and THIS is what I get? My body has issued a challenge and I'll be damned if I back down. Nuh-uh, not going to happen.

So, I am going to have some before photos taken tomorrow, and yes, that's going to be embarrassing, but I am still doing it. And then I will move on to day 4 of P90X - yoga. Umm, yeah. I'm no friend of yoga. I have been to a few classes and let's just say that I am not, in any way, shape or form, bendy.

These first three workouts have been fun, though. First it was chest & shoulders and I was using too light weights and didn't really feel challenged. I will look into buying heavier weights, in the meantime I will be using bands. Yesterday I did plyometrics and while it was nowhere near as hard as Insanity's plyo, it was still a good workout. Today was arms & shoulders done entirely with bands and OH YES, they work! I am so fricking tired and my arms are trembling. I like it! :) So as not to feel like a complete wuss, I did an Ab Ripper X workout right after.

I am going to be feeling this tomorrow, which I am sure will make my yoga that much more graceful and elegant. Yep.

I am committed to this 90 day program and it feels good. Hopeful, somehow. Bring on the yoga!

    So glad that you're doing P90X too! It's a great program and I love it so far! I'm about to start my 3rd week on the Lean version. I'm feeling a LOT stronger and already feeling leaner. I like this program a lot better than Insanity, so we'll see what happens! Good luck to you!

    It's a great program...There's an excel spreadsheet to track your weights that's out there on the internet.

    I've watched a little of the p90x and it looks hard to me. So, congratulations for deciding to give it a try. I'd like to see those "before and after" pictures of yours and maybe I'll give it a shot. I feel kind of the same way about my weight, too. I don't miss a day of exercise and I have gained a little weight, too - which you won't see on my ticker as I'm determined to lose it again. Good luck with P90X! I hope you get the best results.

    You'll have to let me know how you like P90X.
I thought about getting it but haven't yet.
