Ben thinks it is hilarious... even though he won't tease me to my face, I know he is snickering behind my back. (I did get back at him this morning as he did HIS workout on the pull-up bar...) My boys keep asking me what is wrong, and they just don't seem to "get it" that I am sore from some intense workouts.
Last night I decided to do the "Stretch X" video, which is a whole hour of just stretching. I loved it! It really released a lot of tension and built up lactic acid so that I slept well last night, woke up with more energy, and was able to do my workout today. Now I am feeling great! Still a little sore, but making it work.
There is no way I am giving up! And I am not going to let Ben poop out on me either because I am not doing this by myself.
Also, I wanted to try something a little different in this post and comment on a few comments my readers left on my post last week:
"That Plyo is a killer. The great thing about P90X is you don't have to be in amazing shape to do it. You do your best and constantly improve every week.
Alicia -- Seriously, the Plyometrics ARE killers! That was the workout that made me stiffer than a rusty Tin Man! I am finding that I can adjust every workout to my current physical condition and still make it work!
"I LOVE love LoVe p90x. It's my favorite work out program. I know some people think that Tony is weird, crazy and/or over eccentric. But I LoVE him. You can totally do this. The first time I did it, I thought I was going to die, but I survived. And decided to take a break, then do it again. Love it.
"I can't wait until I'm not prego (even though some people are tougher than me and do it prego) and I can start again. Alicia is right. Plyo is a killer. So is CORE. But they are fantastic.
"Can't wait to hear more about your p90x adventure. Have fun."
Phannie-- Tony is such a nerd -- and that's why I adore him! Some of the stuff he says gets some serious eye rolls from me... but he cracks me up! I'm a nerd too and these days, it's cool to be a little "nuts." The worst is when I am trying to balance or struggling to get that last push up in, he'll say something random and funny and I start to laugh and it's all I can do to breath and not fall over! Good times!
Right now, I am doing the "Lean" program [Note: P90X has three programs: Classic (the one Ben is doing), doubles (for people who are athletic and can handle more), and Lean (for peeps like me who have a lot of weight to lose)]. I know that 90 days can only take me so far, so when I am done, I may take a little break (like a week) and then do the Classic one to get the rest off and look the way I have always wanted.
