This morning I dragged myself out of bed and did P90x - Week 5, Day 2 - Plyo X. Every time I do this workout, it seems to get harder - probably because I am now more focused on technique, rather than just getting through the workout as such. I didn't really feel that enthused until I started the DVD and was reminded that one of the participants has a prosthetic leg. Seeing this guy give it his all in those circumstances pushed me to give it a good shake this morning. I then followed up with RPM 33 and gave myself a good hiding as John E would say.
It is very weird not having DH around. For one, when the alarm clock goes off, I turn on my bedside lamp. Usually this is a big no no and I am scavenging around for my workout gear in the dark. Secondly I added peanut butter (sorry Kek) to my oats this morning and no one blinked an eyelid! If I had done that in front of DH he would say, "what are you doing? Now my worst fears about your weirdness have been confirmed!". Charming DH..... I also added more starchy carb to recovery meal this morning and I am feeling really good right now - and taken my fish oil capsules. Once Mr Berardi has finished with me I'll be a veggie swilling, fish oil burping goddess :)
Many people want to know about the effectiveness of the p90x program. After five weeks my stats are - weight is the same....I am stronger for most pulls/pushes..must mean a little bit of muscle being added there! Wahooie! I certainly don't look puny :)
