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!
