P90X (Take 2)~Day 4

In P90X Journey on 6 June 2011 at 9:10 am

Day 1:    Day 2  Day3    Day4

If you read Day 3, then you know that I was spiritually and emotionally out of alignment. I was not in the mood to do much of anything. That is my track record when I get upset or just feel down and out. Tradition would have me ordering carry-out or not eating at all…. ALL of which are terrible causes of weight gain. So this time I just laid down and refused to even go to the kitchen. But I could not fall asleep for the life of me.

I woke up Early this morning with intentions of working out, but I was so sleepy and tired that it sis even happen because I needed to get dressed for church since my friend invited me to attend hers for the day. If i would have gone to my church, I woudl have been in by 8:30 and out by 10am and would have worked out then… but that was not the case today.  Yet, I must protest that my intentions to work out were there.

I went to the service and the guest speaker was AMAZING!!! He spoke right to my soul. He preached from John 15 ( I think, something about vines) and also Jonah 4:5-6. And it hit me right in the heart. He spoke about the shelters that we build around ourselves as protection from one thing or another ( the Jonah scripture) and how “we can do it good, but God can do it better” if we just trust in Him. The John scripture spoke about the cutting away of vines around us. How funny…. I spent the better part of Day 3/3am of Day 4 deleting over 100 people from my facebook page who weren’t really my friends but just spaces obtained by clicking “confirmed” simply because I knew their face, recalled their name, or had originally hoped that we could become friends. But even with that effort, I was building a good shelter around me when God has a better plan than just deleting people from a social network site. Whatever it is… I dont know.

So, church aside, I now had my spiritual in order but it was time to get my meal in order. My homegirl and I went to the grocery store and got our cook on. We cooked our food for the remainder of the week and I shared some fitness and eating tips with her. Just the basics to keep her motivated. After that I had a one-on-one coaching session with one of my Slam Poets and that went 2 horus later than expected; notice there is no sign of fitness in this post? Well, by the time I dropped him off, fought falling asleep behind the wheel, went back to my friend’s house to pick up the food she had completed cooking and made it back to my house…… it was 10:30 pm.  I must admit, if the P90X calendar had said Kenpo X…I would have struggled through until 11:30pm, but something about it saying Yoga was enough for my will to shut down.  I HATE YOGA!

But…..That just means that today when I get home (actually Day 5) I will have to post about Yoga X and Legs and something else….lol. I am motivated to make up exercises if I miss them, and Yes, I know that isnt apart of the routine, but it is going to have to work because I am typing this while thinking of robbing a 7-11 of all of their 5 Hour Energy drinks. I am THAT tired. But… I did want to give you an update, admit to my failing to work out yesterday and then commit to making it up to myself. There. I said it. Now…..let me go find some crack so I can get some energy. Anyone kow how many calories are in a gram of crack?

. But I feel that way. May workout before church. Thanks P90X for giving me an outlet when I feel like I dont have one.
