I had a lightbulb go off in my head yesterday. I am so hellbent on wanting results and wanting them yesterday that I'm doing everything I can to try to make that happen. I'm doing my P90X everyday and then thinking I should be doing my C25K on top of that. Getting up at 4am to fit in my P90X and doing my cardio after work every night. So my mood sucks, my hip hurts, my knee hurts, I'm getting discouraged and I'm tired all the time... Is it really worth it? Dang...
So I went on the message boards of Beachbody to see if I should be concerned about my hip (I didn't really think so but figured I'd better check), and found all these BB coaches telling people in similar situations to not push it... Do the program as it's intended and the results will come. You don't need to do 2 workouts a day... You don't need to do additional workouts on top of the program.... Give the program your all and the results will come... Out of curiousity, I measured my waist last night and realized that in the week and a half that I've been doing P90X that I've lost another inch off my waist alone. I'm trying to hold off until this weekend to do my official measurements to see if I'm changing and I just can't tell right now.
I didn't do my cardio last night and haven't ran since Sunday. I got up this morning and you know what?!? My knee and hip don't hurt as much anymore. I can walk up the stairs without wincing... Maybe there is some truth to the whole overdoing it thing... 90 days of P90X and I'm going to try to just do the program! I'm going to BRING IT everyday and we'll see how things go.
(ok, and maybe just a little cardio on occasion so I don't lose my endurance that I've worked so hard to get) hehe
