Whew *pant*pant*

Okay so Sunday I read in our church bulletin that they have a group that works out every morning at the church and on top of that *It's totally free*. So I was totally happy right? The bulletin mentioned that they were following the P90X plan and I thought 'Ooh I've heard of that, s'posed to be good right?' and I was still happy. I decided to go to the early morning session so I could go before my little girl wakes up and I can leave her with daddy guilt free *hehehe*. So at 5 am this morning I head off to church and I'm a little nervous but very excited.

I really did not know what was coming... Now I have since been informed that there are several different work outs and that they all vary in difficulty, but do you know that today they were doing THE hardest one possible? The 'Jump Training' video (not the technical name probably but if you've done it you won't soon forget the one I'm talking about). They warned me before beginning the video that some first timers have even thrown up after doing this work out... -_- very encouraging

Well on the upside I didn't throw up, but I also didn't do probably half of the actual exercises from the tape, but I just tried to keep moving and enjoy the company regardless. I don't know if I'm the only one with this problem, but with all this excess weight jumping a lot can get painful real quick. I don't have the strongest ankles either, so I tried to modify as many of the exercises as I could.

Anyway they're doing different videos every other day of the week so I will just keep in mind that this one is still a bit advanced for me. I hope to go back as much as possible, maybe even every day. Having people to work out with is such a huge thing for me and I don't want to take this for granted. It would be great to go every day, I just wish I could work out a carpool with someone or something, lol.

Well that's all for now, just wanted to share about my exciting and tiring morning.

    P90X is supposed to be WAY HARD. I want to try it someday to get really muscley. :) HAHAHAHA. But I'm sure you were doing the plyometric based video and yes, that stuff is super challenging. You are a rockstar for going and attempting as much as you could! :D Stick with it and I'm sure you'll be capable of more soon. But yeah, don't be discouraged, it's definitely SUPPOSED to be a difficult program from what I hear. People that are in shape on SP try it and get their butts kicked. :) hehehe.

    First, love the enclosed photo. Second, great job for you to keep at it, even though you could only do part of the session - and further, to keep going to other workouts! Hope this works for you - enjoy! You can do it!
