On the one hand, I’m really proud that I did the whole week of P90X and am on track. So that’s the good news.
Know what the bad news is? I gained 5 pounds this week. Yes, a disgusting and unbelievable 5 pounds. I admit that some of this may be due to eating a little more, but I’m not eating a lot more, and I am exercising a lot more. And don’t tell me it’s muscle either, because it’s not. My clothes don’t fit. I am fatter. Fatter, I tell you. Life is so unfair.
Ok, end rant. On to the details of Week 1 of P90X and the first 7% of the progress toward my goal of completing a full cycle of P90X.

Day 1 of P90x: Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X
How it felt: A little rusty, but I know from whence I came, and I’ll be back in tip top shortly.
2.5 mile run/walk (mostly walk)
How it felt: Hot! Jamie and I decided that perpetual motion is the key, and we walked hard.

Day 2 of P90X: Plyometrics
How it felt: Whew, doggin’ it, as Tony Horton would say. Next week will be better though.

Day 3 of P90X: Arms & Shoulders, Ab Ripper X
How it felt: Elllllioooottt. Oooouuuuuch.

My first fail. Oops.
Saturday, July 17
I’m a day behind now, but it’s ok. I’ll just skip my day off on Monday.
Day 4 of P90X: Yoga X
How it felt: I hate Yoga X, mostly because I used to think I was pretty good at yoga, but this one kicks my sorry butt. Every time. And today was no different, except that I tried really hard not to get frustrated, and, whaddaya know, staying relaxed and not getting stressed about not being able to do everything actually allowed me to do more than usual.

Day 5 of P90X: Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
How it felt: Holy crap I’m tired. Also, my right shoulder is now giving me hell. It was my left shoulder exactly a week ago. What gives?
Monday, July 19
Day 6 of P90X: Kenpo X
How it felt: Would have been nice to have the day off, but it’s too bad for me for messing up on Friday. Tomorrow? Week 2 begins! Week 1 is toast!
