I did it! I did my first P90X workout--Chest/Back. It was hard, but not as hard as I had it worked up in my mind. There were a few things I absolutely could NOT do! Such as: diamond pushups and decline pushups. I think I did one of each. Oh well...it's a start! Right!? Gotta start somewhere. I am so excited. I hope I can keep up the intensity, focus, and enthusiasm. After I jumped around high-fiving myself, I realized that the DVD was still running and I had Ab RipperX to do! Well...you have GOT to be kidding!! That ain't right. That part is just sick. Needless to say I struggled to get out 5 reps on most of the exercises. After 8 min. I gave up. I think I will need to this part in the evening when I am more "fresh". Holy crapola!! I am feeling a little bit queasy. I have heard that people feel this way after doing the P90X work outs. I hope it goes away soon.
In my Day 1 pics, I look fatter in my belly area, but my bodyfat does not reflect that. My shorts are a lot tighter than the pants I had been taking pics in. Pushed it all in and up! Kinda like a fat little sausage! LOL!! Again....it's a place to start. I have to remember how far I've come since January!
I am up 5 lbs, I don't see how that can be...my body fat is the same as last week. I know it's not muscle--I think I pigged out on carbs last week and I'm retaining water. It will all work out in the end.
CLOTHING CHALLENGE: Don't forget to get me pics of you in a tight pair of jeans, skirt, or shorts! The challenge starts on May 1st. I am so excited. So far I have Rob and Jamie and myself. C'mon, guys...sign up. How fun would this be?! Send your start pic to: firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1st.
