P90X Journey: Day 15

In P90X Journey on 2 November 2010 at 9:58 am

 

I know that I said that I would workout this morning when I woke up…. and I said this at 2am in the blog when I had to wake up at 6am….and yeh….it didnt happen. But, staying true to my word, I worked out for 2 hours when I got home.

I woke up this morning and rushed to work without breakfast. I almost stopped and made some eggs and then decided against it due to time. BAD MOVE! Because when I got to work I was stuck in my office all day because I didn’t have my building badge and needed an escort. I also sucked butt and ate free mini snickers all day. I also think that I had a few Reese’s cups. It was there. Towards the end of the day my body was craving more sugar and so I got an orange ade-ish soda from the vending machine. Again, I prefaced with the fact that I sucked, so dont judge me. lol.  But good thing is that I did take my lunch, so I had my two small fajitas and that was it for lunch.

When I got off work I went to the grocery store and got a few more staples to assist me in making my meals. I had a drumstick off of my roasted chicken for dinner. It wasnt big at all, but it was enough to keep me from passing out. I was proud that I stopped eating because I felt myself about to over indulge and I stopped. Go Me!

Tonight I decided that I would switch to the Classic routines, just for a switch in order to my brain. I also wanted to do 2 hours of workouts a day to speed up my results. if I can lose 2 inches in 2 weeks with only 1 hour, I wanted that to only get better. I also wanted my fitness to improve. So I did the Chest and Back tonight with the Ab Ripper X . That totaled to an hour and sixteen minutes. Then I took a ten minute break and found a P90X support group on Sparkpeople.com and then I continued with Sean T’s Hip Hop Abs: Fat Burning Cardio. WOW!!! I remember when I first bought this thing, I had to stay low with Tanya because I was so out of shape. I would use an inhaler in the middle of workouts, constant breaks….but not tonight!!!! I was doing the high impact exercise format and loving every bit of it.

The only downfall is the fact that my Right hip socket and lower back side hurt. It flares up in stretches, bending flat back at the waist, and kicking/jumping….so basically when I move…lol. It doesn’t hurt so much when I have finished stretching but the initial stretch does hurt the most as well as jumping.But it is not unbearable, I figure if I can get my abs tighter it can help support those muscles that I have been using improperly for the past 15 years.  I also got side cramps during Hip Hop Abs because I had drunk water after the P90X workout…oh boy did that hurt! Sitting here writing this my back and shoulder blades are twitching with mini spasms. I was proud of the push-ups…even though I did them on my knees… I did them. I will build up to a full push-up. Tony Horton said, “Rome wasnt born in a day, so neither will your body”. I like that. It is a process that I am finding ways to stay engaged.And even though I am wheezing because of this phelm that I keep attempting to cough from my lungs ( sorry for the TMI) I keep it moving….. I felt unstoppable. I made up my mind and I did it!!!

My P90X workout went as follows: (All Push-ups were on knees & pull-ups done with Heavy Band)

Standard Push-ups:  15 (BURN)

Wide Front Pull-up:  24

Military Push-ups:  16 (BURN and at a faster speed)

Diamond Push-ups: 13 ( Goal was 15 but left wrist on palm side began to hurt)

Lawnmower: 20 each side ( medium bands)

Dive Bomber Push-ups: 6 (confused on form….)

Back Flys:  20 ( medium Band)

Standard Push-ups Rnd 2:  25 (Shakey arms)

Decline Push-ups Rnd 2: 15 (on knees)

Heavy Pants Rnd 2: 20 ( With Medium bands and a loop)

Diamond Push-ups: 16 ( Didnt go all the way down & left wrist on palm side began to hurt)

Lawnmower Rnd: 20 each side ( medium bands)

Dive Bomber Push-ups Rnd 2: 8 ( switched feet because knee locked and scared me. Pushing back hurt right hip)

Back Flys Rnd 2:  20 ( medium Band)

Ab Ripper X: I did 25 of each set with minor problems, but I am getting too sleepy to type. lol. I have it written down for me. But at least I finished them all. I will get up in the morning and do Hip Hop Abs before I head out to vote and then off to work. I am proud of myself!!! I hope that you are getting use to changing yourself as well. God bless!

Sincerely,

  1. You are so awesome and kicking major ASS!!!!! Congratulations on your results girl!! I read somewhere that “strong is the new skinny” AMEN. Be careful to avoid injury, and I love your determination. I am in my recovery week, but instead of yoga x today, I ran for an hour for the cardio. I am doing a bit of an improvised Doubles program. OH, and the term “Internet Niggas” in your last post almost made me shit myself laughing. That is all. 🙂

      I am glad that you like it. I am glad I called this uncensored because I have warned you in the title that anything goes! lol.

      Thanks. I will be in my recovery week NEXT week. So I have 3 more days after today and then I will be in recovery week. I too need to head to the gym and run it out or see if I can stand the cold and run outside and see how far I can make it in the different climate. You keep it up too!

      Thanks for reading and responding… means a lot! God bless!
