P90X (Take 2)~Day 5

In P90X Journey on 7 June 2011 at 3:24 pm

Day 1:    Day 2  Day 3    Day 4    Day 5

If you read Day 4 then you know I missed the workout yesterday, amd too tired to function normally today….a nd Yeh!

I am literally dreading having to workout for 2 hours when I get home… something is just not natural about that, but it is my fault for not scheduling yesterday out properly. I really am going to have to do Yoga X with the radio on because I cant do it in my quiet house. I am liable to scream just to add some excitement into the mix.

I will keep you updated this evening with the amount of struggle I have inflicted on myself.

Also, I let an acquaintence of mine in on the P90X Plus DVDs… I watched them and wanted to cry. I shouldnt have because now I may never use them lol. I cant even remember why I bought them when I cought the original DVDs. I guess I got it just in case I finished the 90 days and wanted to move on to the graduate discs of P90X Plus….. but I will have to be a 7 year senior because I dont think I will ever be fit enough to do the Plus package….lol. Yeh… hurting right now just thinking about it. But… he said he is going to purchase it tonight. if he has a heart attack… I will let you all know! lol. I say that because he is one buff dude, so if he suffers, there is not a chance in a winter in hell that I will be able to survive it.


Later this evening……….



Okay, this second round of fitness with the program is NOT going like I planned but I have 85 more days left to get it right…lol. But at least I am trying.

So, I didn’t wake up and workout this morning. Was extreeeeeeeemely too tired. I even went to work and was dozing on and off the whole entire damn day! I went and got a 5 hour Energy drink and couldn’t feel my face. I was going to go home and take a long as nap. I had convinced myself that I could nap for 2 hours and then get up and workout some.

See, that was my inner fat chick getting the best of me and she damn near won. The fitness gods heard this nonsense and sent my homegirl to send me a request.  My diva hit me up and asked me if I would walk with her around 7pm. I get off work at 4:30pm. By the time I leave work and make it home, it is only 5pm…soooooo… that means that I had some time to spare. So, I decided to do Yoga X.

Now, Yoga X and I have the WORST history in the world. I didn’t like it when I first did it in December and I simply abhorred the thought of even having to do it again. But, I turned on the radio to WKYS 93.9 FM and muted the TV….lol. It really did help. I would glance over to see how many seconds I had left and I made it through the entire DVD. I had to drop a couple of poses because my arms were shaking before the Tree Pose, but for the most part I went 20 minutes straight without complaining. At one point I almost stopped just because and I verbally told myself “no” and got back in the pose and kept it moving. It really is a mind of matter type of situation. I still don’t like it. And Kenpo is my favorite… but I put up with it.

As soon as I finished, I put on my tennis shoes, funky booty and all, and I went to my diva’s house and we drove to the track. We walked 4 laps and then I ran one complete lap, and we finished 3 more. I was proud of my one lap because of the fact that I have not run outside this entire year and it is now June. All of my running so far has been on the treadmill with interval training. The only reason I didn’t run further is because I didn’t have water with me ( stupid, I know) and I was drying my mouth out to a point to where I was coughing. I am such an open mouthed breather. So, next time I will have to be hydrated enough before running. Next time I want to run a lap and a half until I can run a full mile. Will feel great!
