P90X Week One Day 5
Friday, March 05, 2010
I was a little off this morning and I just couldn’t motivate myself to bring it, so I waited until tonight. I was tempted to just skip it and take today as my day of rest but instead forced myself to Just Do It! It actually went by pretty quickly. I still don’t feel very motivated but I’m done. I feel good about that.
Legs and Back
This was another very doable one for me. Of course I used bands rather than a chin up bar, since that’s all I had AND I CAN NOT do chin ups. The leg exercises were much easier than I expected. Next time I’ll definitely add or increase weights. Don’t get me wrong. I did feel the burn but I was able to complete all the reps on almost every exercise.

I wasn't sure if I would do this again today since I just did it yesterday or if I would put it off until Saturday or Sunday. I felt good after the Legs and Back so I went for it. I still subbed crunches for full sit ups but did all the rest as instructed.
One things for sure. I would rather feel motivated than the way I felt today. I feel like I get much more out of the workout, mentally, when I’m motivated. Oh well. Tomorrow’s another day. I’m sure I’ll have my mojo back by then. I didn’t sleep all that well last night due to DH having a restless night. I think that’s been the issue today.
The fact that I got both workouts done even when I didn’t really want to do them, speaks volumes for the change in my attitude. Rachel, Leah, Alisa and Jessica, the fact we’re in this together is what kept me going today. I’m grateful for your friendship and support.
