P90X Day 2

I have the mother of all DOMS today my friends.  The soreness I feel right now is deep, in places I didn’t know could hurt.  My lower abs, that blasted pooch area is the most surprising place, my hip flexors.  It hurts to laugh….yeah that kind of sore.  I am reminded of that episode of Friends, “The One Where Chandler Works Out.” Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, ……The good thing is that I can’t whine about it this time.  I have to suck it up and do the work anyway! I was a strange mix of excited and intimidated over today’s scheduled workout.  Plyometrics.  I am very familiar with plyo because of the Jillian and Bob workouts I am so fond of.  But ya’ll….. this one is plyo on steroids.  I was excited because I am twisty like that and I enjoy a good torturous workout,  but genuinely concerned about my ability to perform because of the soreness and fatigue in my hip flexors from the AbRipperX.  I really didn’t know how I was going to make it through but some how, I surprised myself, and I did it.

Breakfast

This morning I ate pretty much right away at 6am even though I wasn’t all that hungry yet.  I made less oats this time because yesterday was really too much.  photo 3

4 slices turkey bacon, 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, Ideal and cinnamon.

I got all my morning work done and then it was time……

P90X has been a very humbling program.  I am thankful for that.  I am thankful to have a “project”.  I am thankful for a new challenge, something that is really hard.  I am thankful to have a goal. I am thankful for my able body.  I am thankful for these sore muscles.  I am thankful that my husband is doing it right along with me. You should see the two of us trying to get around right now….pathetic.

I am not exactly sure how we are going to get through tomorrow’s workout.  I told him I need to watch it tonight so I can mentally prepare myself.

Nighty night friends! Off to foam roll and stretch!

As a side note….look at my two hip attachments.  Do they love me, or my personal space heater?
