...That Yoga would be so tiring?!!
Today is the Day 4 of my P90X journey, and when I woke up this morning, my butt was so sore. I felt like I got hit by a bus and ran over by many motorcycles.... It is not as bad as I imagined/people made it seem, but it was still pretty agonizing. I already did Core Synergistics, Plyometics, and Arms and Shoulder. I only felt a little soreness from arms and shoulder, so I guess I need heavier weights, but man, those mofos are EXPENSIVE!! They're like $20 EACH! So I think I might just get a resistance band to tide me over.
Anyways, so today I was supposed to do Yoga X. To be honest, I've never been a fan of Yoga/Pilates, I think they are boring and not effective. I fell asleep once when I was taking a Yoga class back in Miami....it was really embarrasing. LOL! So today when I put in the disk, and saw that it was 1.5 HOURS of Yoga, I was like "oh hell no!! ". I didn't want to waste my youth, LOL!
However, 5 minutes in the workout, I realized that this is different. This is not for people to fool around and fall asleep in. This is SERIOUS. The first 45 minutes were pure torture. I feel like a rubberband just waiting to break. I got so sweaty I had to wipe off my mat! It was pretty bad. Yet, I stuck with it, and came to a pleasant realization that the 2nd half is a lot easier in my opinioin. Don't get me wrong, it's NOT easy, but for me, it was easier than the 1st half. It was more for flexibility/balance, and I'm pretty good at that.
Except there was this part in which you have to stand on your hands, and I was like "WTF?!!". Obviously I failed at that, LOL! I did get one foot off the floor though, so I'm pretty proud about that. At the end of the workout, I felt so liberated and exuberant, I was ready to take on the day!
My diet for the past 4 days has been good. I had a lot of tofu and eggs, and LOTS of vegetables. I discovered this bar by Kellogg, and it's called Fiber Plus. It has 35% of your daily fiber intake in a bar, and it's only 110 cal! I got them in Chocolate chip and Dark Chocolate Almond flavors, and they are DELICIOUS! I would've never guessed that it was a fiber bar. It tastes a lot better than the Special K bars!
Anyways, I don't think there's a difference in my body yet, but I do feel very energized and I don't crave junk food as much (yet). I lost 1 lb, but I guess that could be water weight. LOL! Overall, I really like P90X so far. The instrutor Tony Horton is very down to earth. He doesn't make you feel inferior b/c you couldn't do a "Half moon", instead, he pokes fun at himself and admits that sometimes even HE cannot do it. It's very different from the previous workouts I've used. I'm actually looking forward to working out everyday, instead being afraid of it. I'm really excited to reach my 30 day mark to see the transformation.
I'm so pooped, I gotta go take a nap. Peace out!
P.S. For those of you who purchased from my sale, I'm going to the PO at 5pm, so your packages will be on their ways! I will let you know via email though. Thanks for everything! <3
