P90X Journey: Day 30

In P90X Journey on 17 November 2010 at 10:16 am

16 Nov 10

This Morning…… I hit snooze so many times that I think it may not work properly tomorrow. I just could not get out of bed as early as I would have liked. WOW!!!! Okay, so I finally got moving. I am going to do doubles just to put in some work in the 30 days leading up to my birthday cruise. I figure if I do the P90X Doubles then it should put things into overdrive. Lord only knows if this will actually work, but it can’t hurt. I only want to lose 10 lbs this month. Then I will be under my goal of 220 by the time I step foot on the cruise.

This morning I did Cardio X. I must admit that I wasnt doing it full-out. I was light-headed and dizzy & hungry. My stomach started to hurt and I had to stop one exercise before the cool down, but I made it. I have to figure out how to get enough energy in my system at night to last me through morning workouts. Will have to research, because I didn’t like that feeling at all. I drank a lot of water and hope to get through at least a pitcher by tonight.  Right now it is saying that I have 798 steps. I swear I stepped more than that…but again… it’s this janky pedometer. I was going to take the stairs this morning but a co-worker left her badge at home so I had to escort her via elevator because she wasnt going to take the stairs. lol. Shame.

Today really is like starting all over since I was sick last week. I have to get my mind back in the right spot and my body to get back healthy. Because it is still recovering from the infection. It sucks…. but I will get better. Okay… time for lunch.

WORKOUT

So, I came home and I dove right into the Chest, Back and Triceps DVD. I used my Iron Gym pull-up bar for push-ups like they say that you can…..man I felt that burn in my groin…lol. I tried to do it like a regular straight leg push up and my stomach clenched so hard I almost peed on myself so I went back to my knees. I have to use a pillow on my knees because of how hard my floor is and my floating patella still scare me. I have a fear I will be working out and my knee cap is gonna snap to the side like it use to back in high school. This morning my shoulders and back are BURNING!! DO you hear me?! BURNING!!!! I was proud of myself.

It was pretty rough getting back into the groove of things after having been sick for a week. Especially since this was my second workout of the day. I could have easily thrown in the towel and said I already worked out for the day and been cool with that. But I know better. I have all of these holiday meals and vacations dead smack in the middle of this Phase of 30 days and I have to put in the extra work just to pray that I stay even.  I can’t let anything stop me from getting below 220lbs. By the time I step on a plane on Dec 11th headed to Miami, I want the scale to say 219.9999999 lbs. I may not get on the plane if I don’t make that goal. I am dead ass serious! This is more than vanity to me, this is my life…the habits that I want to take with me from this day forward. I can’t go into my 30th birthday with a set-back. I have to go into it with a small victory that drives me & motivates me to keep moving forward. I already told my homegirl that I have to get up and hit the gym every day on the cruise. I have to. Sounds weird to say, but I can’t let my celebration set me back either. It will be less stressful than P90X but it will be SOMETHING!!! Then our walking around the different ports every day will help too. I just have to set up a plan and keep it moving. I also have to watch what I eat while on the ship. I can have a blast, but know what I am getting myself into & make wise decisions.

When Ab Ripper came on I sped through those exercises without the DVD…I had to go my pace without getting psyched out. But in the end I had to stop. I started to feel what I call the “drunken burp” where you feel like you have to burp but if you do something else might come up behind it. I felt real light-headed and nauseous so I had to call it quits to exercises before the end; the leg climber and the Mason twist. I had to know my limits. And I had reached them. I am typing this and forgot to bring my workout stats with me… but I will probably post them tomorrow so you can see what I did and/or how I did. Thanks for reading.
