Week 3 of P90X is DONE! Today's my "rest " day, and so I did the Fat Burner Express (only 30 minutes - but brought the intensity, so it was WORK) - and I will do the Stretch X tonight, when I'm good and warm. Might do ballet workout before tha... Read more
Week 3; Day 6
Did my Kenpo today, and I must say... I rocked it.
I do have to be a little bit more "awake" when I do those workouts, though, and this morning was kind of rough as sleep was uncomfortable. Allergies are at an all-time high, and although i... Read more
Week 3; Day 3
Had my daily date with Tony Horton - or, as I call him, my Other Husband. Because, yeah, not gonna lie. I'd hit that. :)
Today is shoulders & arms/abs... and frankly, I'm glad for an easy day after plyometrics. And I mean "easy" in a re... Read more
Um... no. Not really. It isn't fun - it's friggin HARD WORK.
But Tony Horton makes it bearable. I made the comment to Andrew this morning that it's nice to see that Tony gets winded by these workouts, too - and you can see very plainly t... Read more
Mysteriously, three pounds gained overnight. Welcome to the world of being a woman.
It's not like I pigged out or anything yesterday, either. In fact, overeating is something I almost never do these days.
Eh... I just need to be pati... Read more
Ew. Seriously? So gross.
So maybe you've seen the Geico car insurance commercials where there's this guy who's trying to save money. One of the ways he tries to save money on losing weight is by hiring three teenage girls to follow him around and police his food choice... Read more
I got up... did my workout as usual (woo!)... drank my protein shake... got ready and went to work. Didn't pack my yogurt for a morning snack because I knew I had one at the office, in the fridge.
And it's not there this morning. I only J... Read more
Pesach! And Easter!
I love Passover, I really do - especially when I can get to a seder. They're usually a great time for fellowship and reflection. And yeah, the food. :)
So what's this got to do with fitness?
One of the things I *don't* like about Pa... Read more
Plyometrics this morning really whipped me.
I was bringing the intensity, to be sure - but about two thirds of the way through, my body began to do weird things... I got lightheaded, I could hear my pulse in my ears, and I felt ready to pas... Read more
I love how it's only Wednesday...
...and I'm already WAY past my "calorie burn" goal for the week. :)
I did my ballet workout last night, and felt sooo much better afterward - it's true, once you get into exercise and find something you really like, it feels bad when you m... Read more
I woke up early enough today to do the P90X Stretch - an hour of really delicious stretching that my body was really rejoicing in. Did NOT wake up early enough, however, to do the Stretch AND the ballet workout, as I'd hoped. I'm a little baji... Read more
It was a very busy weekend - hence, no blog.
BUT - I did not skimp on my workouts!
Saturday was my P90X Yoga X day... it was an hour and a half, and a SOLID workout. You normally don't think of yoga as being like that, but it was. An... Read more
Shoulders/Arms and the Ab Ripper today.
Starting to feel really and truly worked. Just about my entire body is sore now, which is a good thing because it's temporary, tangible proof that it's working! We usually have to wait a while befor... Read more
Day 2 - picture time!
I got up and did my second day of P90X today - plyometrics. I don't know why I built it up in my head that it was going to be next to impossible to do... it's hard, don't get me wrong - wrung about a quarter-pint of sweat out of... Read more
Day 1 - reporting for duty!
So, as per the plan, I began P90X today.
Oh, kids. Let me tell you... I got served up a big slice of humble pie. Still warm.
It's hard. There's a reason they say that you should take and pass the basic fitness test before you try it... Read more
