Day 2 - Plyo

I am so weak right now. This plyo work out is nooo joke. I'm so pooped, I feel loopy. I should have definitely gotten the recovery formula. I have no clue what to eat or drink after this workout. Either way, I am beat down to the ground. Halfway through I was screaming bloody murder. To think, I used to do this junk and then do some sort of sprint workout. WHAT?! Okay so that's the light at the end of the tunnel; that energy I once had. To have that stamina to do the workout and then get through an entire day high and feeling great! I was warned. haha.

So as far as my diet today, I was not good. I didn't eat junk food but I sure didn't eat enough food. By 7pm I was way too weak to do anything, including keeping my eyes open. I need to definitely keep up with the amount of eating. My body is working now. This is still exciting. However, I am not thinking about this excitement while I'm dying during the workouts. haha.

Day 2 down, a lifetime to go! Lets get it!

Day 1 - Chest and Back

Wowzers. I've just jumped head first into the world of extreeeeeeeeme. P90-EXTREEEEME that is.

How many times have we all seen the P90X infomercials on TV; Tony Horton and his band of hot bodies; and of course the success stories. Those stories have really inspired me, I must say. So inspired I decided to join in on the "fun".

Well as a former athlete I figured I needed a challenge; one that included someone telling me how to kill myself for an hour or so. haha. After taking my pre-P90X measurements, it has been confirmed why I need Tony Horton and his band of ridiculously ripped buddies.

So Day 1...Chest and Back. I've been excited all day thinking about this huge start to the rest of my life. Then I read what I will be doing. As it dawns on me what the major exercises will be, I'm thinking two things: "what the...?" and "you've got to be kidding me!". A gazillion different ways to do push-ups and pull-ups. Oh em ghee people! Decline push-ups...Ummm. Diamond push-ups...huh? Dive-bomber push-ups..que?! << speaking a different language. haha. Unfortunately there is no way to do Decline push-ups on my knees. Bummer. So my arms feel like strawberry jelly flavored spaghetti. BUT I feel great having started my 90-day adventure.

How will I feel in the morning? Beats me. I will try to remember the goal: my mind-body transformation. Stay tuned...

Here we go!
