Unstoppable

Monday, January 31, 2011

I said P90 sculpt was a little difficult yesterday, but I got through it. Today was P90 cardio. It came very close to kicking my butt. I almost quit 3 times. The first and second times were right at the near beginning when we had to power yoga our way from planks to upward dog to leg raised and thrust it forward into runner's pose. I lost my balance several times, but I kept on until that segment was over. I really enjoyed the punching and twisting and even some of the kicking. The very last segment of crunches, of which there were several types was where I almost gave in for the third time and said "to hell with this, I made it through 90% of the segment". But I kept on going. All throughout the entire segment a song, an obscure song I heard on youtube months ago kept coming to me in dribs and drabs. Mind you, I had only heard it a couple of times and hadn't given it any real thought since then. Why it came to me I don't know, but it got me through all the way to the end. I did the crunches even though my form was awful and I struggled through all of it. I did it because I am UNSTOPPABLE.

That's the name of the song; You're Unstoppable. I looked it up after my work out, all sweaty and hot and tired. I just knew I had to share this song with all of you because it really speaks to you. Even months later after I had forgotten about it, it spoke to me and gave me the motivation I needed to get through and be able to say "I did it!".

I hope you will take a moment to go to the site and listen to the song and watch the slide show video that goes with it. I think it will speak to you as it did to me.

Unstoppable begins with YOU.


Moment by moment
One step at a time
It's all within you
For you to find
that you can be what you wanna be
You're Unstoppable
So Unstoppable

Unstoppable begins with YOU.

    BTW-- just take your time-- 8-15 reps... start with the 8, don't force the 15... and make sure your weights aren't too heavy! I am doing 2 pound weights and it is already changing my body with such a small amount... so you don't have to be a HERO with the weights.

    Thanks for sharing! I'm so proud of you for making it through the entire work out. I'm just starting back into a fitness routine myself, and I am so much more out of shape than I thought. So this morning, trying to do 30 minutes of cardio...well let's say that I about quit. However, like you I pushed through and I felt so much better for it. Let's pat each other on the back!
