So yesterday i started with my 90 day challenge of completing P90X, i was feeling quite nervous about starting as i am so unfit at the moment and I am probably the heaviest i have ever been not pregnant!!
Husband and baby were tucked up in bed, i got into my workout gear (or rather squeezed into) and pressed play on the DVD player...
Chest & Back
This was hard! I soon realised during the very first push up that i have ZERO upper body strength, i have to be completely honest i could not do one full push up on any of the moves but i still tried, i got half way down and i had to stay on my knees but i still did the exercises and didn't give up. I am aching a little bit today but think if i pushed myself more i would be aching more.
I also need heavier weights as only currently have 2x 1.5 kg, 2x 1 kg & 2x .5kg weights. It is my birthday next month so i am going to ask my parents to get me some heavier dumb bells... i must be serious about this if i want weights for my birthday!!
I took some grainy before photos but husband is going to take some better ones tonight, here is what i look like on day one...
NOT PRETTY AT ALL! But that is why i am here... in 90 days i should hopefully look different!!
At the end of the workout, you also do a 15 minute Ab workout. I thought i can do 15 minutes but these exercises were tough! Tony Horton is mean and a legend at the same time... i have a soft spot for him, he is going to change my life!
I still need to work on my nutrition, we are on a tight budget so i need to make healthy food cheaply, we're going to eat more soups and stews, which will be good as long as i maintain a portion control.
Right, it's Plyometrics tonight, I'll let you know how i get on :)
