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
That's it! Done! 90 days of consecutive workouts, Power 90 program done, "wildcard" workouts on my rest days, and here I am! I am looking and feeling better than I ever have in my entire life, and I owe that to Tony Horton and Sparkpeople. W... Read more
I finished my last Power 90 workout today! WOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!!
Tomorrow, it'll be officially 90 days - so I'll get up, do my "wildcard" workout, and then take my "after" picture. Maybe I'll shower and put on makeup first for this one, LOL.... Read more
TWO DAYS LEFT
I can't even believe it, but that's it - only one more day each of cardio and weight, and I am DONE with Power 90!
My chin-up bar is put together; my brain's in the right place. I'm ready for P90X. :)
Okay, so... yesterd... Read more
"So... how does it feel..."
"...to have a six-pack now?"
Says Andrew this morning to me as I'm getting into the shower after a really fantastic workout. He gives me this great big hug and kiss - even though I'm sweaty and undoubtedly clammy and smelling pretty ripe -... Read more
Not bad... just busy. INSANELY busy.
Woke up late, and only could do half my workout... but that's okay. It's weight training today, so I can do the other half when I get home tonight. But I CANNOT let this happen again!! I need to be mu... Read more
Ain't nothin' like the real thing, baby...
Is that song in your head now?
You're welcome. :)
Anyway, the song inspiration comes from the fact that I received my dubious copy of P90X - and although there is a chance that it might be legit, I'm still sending it back, and the sel... Read more
ONE MORE WEEK
Tomorrow's my "rest" day (which is never really a "rest" day) - and then...
FINAL WEEK OF POWER 90!
I can't believe I actually will finish this!
I started off just wanting to look better... but now, I'm addicted to... Read more
Lots of good exercise today, but i am officially WIPED OUT.
zzzzzzzzzz... Read more
I have worked out 79 consecutive days without missing a single one. For me, that is an unbelievable accomplishment... I used to struggle to work out three days a week! Working out daily has been a habit worth forming. Some days I ... Read more
So I forgot that today was our firm's annual St. Patrick's Day luncheon.
I have the misfortune of being situated next to the large conference rooms where the large group functions tend to happen.
It's unfortunate on many levels; wh... Read more
