P90X Week Three Day 6

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Kenpo! What a fun workout! In fact, it was so much fun today that it didn't even feel like a workout. I pushed myself but felt as if I couldn't push hard enough to make it feel like work. Hmmmm... I guess that means I am getting into shape. Just two weeks ago I felt so awkward while doing this one. Now I feel like a well oiled machine. Funny thing is even though my HR was above my range for quite a bit of the time, I feel like I didn't really do anything.

I also had a NSV today. It may have been all in my mind but after my workout and my shower, I looked in the mirror and it seemed to me that my arms and shoulders were smaller. It's as if overnight, I've gone down a size. I know that can't be, but even now, I feel as if it's true. Maybe it's because I'm toning them. I know I've lost in the bust but I noticed that two weeks ago. I've been feeling the changes in my legs and hips every since I started P90X. Now it's as if I'm feeling it in my upper body as well.

My motivation stayed with me today too, even though DH and I went out to dinner last night and had more than enough margaritas, chips n salsa, and fajitas. I even had deep fried ice cream. Must have been Lissa and Rachel channeling me to eat it! emoticon BRATS! Both of you! Needless to say, I won't be getting on the scale for a day or two. emoticon

    Hhahahahahahah... LOL!!!! as if!!!

    P90x, has this way of pumping self esteem too! I know I felt like I was seeing results, even though numbers weren't necessarily there... or the inches weren't gone etc. etc. etc.

    You'll be surprised at just what the program will make you feel. I'm getting to the point where, yes I want to lose weight still, but I feel good enough about myself and the changes that I've made that I'm now happy about me. I can tell you're getting there!!!


    PS...
    Don't be surprised if when you start your recovery week things feel harder and you feel more clumsy.... changing it up puts different exercises on days your body isn't used to it, and yes, it shocks the system... Week 4 was super hard for me... I didn't feel as strong as I had during the previous weeks... just a heads up for your next week!!

    You go girl! You are such an inspiration, I was watching the P90X infommercial this morning thinking of you and Rachel and Leah and Jessie. I think I'm going to order it! DH said he would do it with me, we'll see about that one:) Keep up the good work! After watching snippets of the workout I don't doubt your arms are getting smaller overnight emoticon

    I bet your arms and shoulders ARE smaller- toned muscle looks much smaller. Yeah!! Keep up the good work! Uh oh, that Mexican food sounds like it got the best of you. Good thing you worked some of it off!

    Thanks for being my P90X buddy. It keeps me going knowing you are doing it too!
