P90X Week Three Day 5
Friday, March 26, 2010
Today was Legs and Back and BOY did I BRING IT! No going through the motions for me today, not that I ever do with Tony. Today was special though. I got a fresh burst of motivation, thanks to a kind word from a Sparkfriend. (Thanks Lissa!) I realized I'm not at the end and failing. I'm simply at a new beginning. If you've been reading my blog, you know that I've been disappointed that even though I'm doing the Lean routine, I'm not losing weight. Well, I'm over that. My body is doing things it couldn't or wouldn't three weeks ago and I plan on allowing my mind to follow. I can and will lose this weight, and while I'm at it, I'm going to develop a body like I've never had before. I figured out a way to use my Bowflex to actually do chin ups from my knees and let me tell you, I'm BAD! BUT! I will get better. and doing them this way will get me there so much quicker than using the bands or any other modification I had come up with. It was amazing feeling a certain muscle group that I've NEVER felt before. Where the h3ll did they come from?
Getting back to today's workout. I pushed myself so hard during Legs and Back and during the beginning of Ab Ripper X that I had to leave the rest of it for later. I could have done it but my form was suffering so I figured I'd get more out of it if I took a break and went back to it. The best part of all??? I got on the scale after my workout and I was DOWN! 1 1/2 lbs!! That is the first time I've seen that since I started P90X. I think I must have reached the point where I've built enough muscle that it's starting to burn more fat. YES! There is a P90X God! (That comment is all in fun. No disrespect to the Real Deal.)
Can you tell how psyched I am? I feel like I've finally turned a corner. Body, mind and soul! And all because of a few supportive words from a special SPark friend.
