Last night's routine was great. Perhaps it was the three day break, or perhaps I just needed a day or so to re-coup. Anyway, I did the routine with such energy and I did not even think about looking at the time in the lower right hand corner to see how much time was left. I thoroughly enjoyed the routine and was pumped. Then the Ab ripper X. I did better and I even was able to do some of the moves I detest or struggled. Though even though I was able to do I only did a few then had to modify to at least be doing part of it as opposed to not doing it at all. I guess the core is coming into play now. That did not take long to accomplish. Of course, this does not mean that I am looking forward to the next Ab Ripper X, but I know I am improving now. The third time with this improvement is the sign that I am doing the program and I am "Bringing it"
Here is an update, I was able to add some pictures to the past posts with the past week and a half. Apparently the blog site has changed a bit so uploading the pictures and posting to the blog posts are a bit of new thing to me. Bear with me. For example that arrowhead water. I loaded the image perfectly, but when the image loaded it turned the picture 90 degrees. Do not ask me what or what happened since I do not have a clue.
Getting back to the routine last night. Legs & back. I will tell you my hamstrings are sore. And the move that probably made them sore is the wall squats. I was not looking forward to this one since I remember the one from the previous times. tough baby. well, only when you are starting out the P90X program. The burn was incredible. And this was not the only burn I had. The Calves. The calf raises also kicked my ass and burned. And as I write this blog post they are sore and tight. Even after doing Kenpo X just two hours ago.
I was sweating like crazy last night. And that was good. That means I was working and in the zone. I was okay after the routine as well as this morning, but later in the afternoon the muscles got tight and I started to feel sore in the areas that I worked out. lol
Nothing new and I of course was expecting this. If I did not then I am not doing the P90X to the max. Meaning, I am not Bringing it.
I went to GNC last night to look at some other Whey mixes. I am having a hard time drinking the one I bought last week. The vanilla flavor has a aroma that just bothers me. And when I am drinking the mixture I am having a problem drinking it. But I am drinking it. Anyway, I bought another one last night and this was a step better than what I bought and this flavor was cookies and cream. I was really worried since I can not remember the last time I ate ice cream cookies and cream. I decided to take a chance and buy a small packet. I brought it to work today and had my first drink. Before that when I opened the package I was overwhelmed by the smell. Different. I left to get some water and then when I came back I decided to do two scoops. I mixed and then raised the drink to my mouth. I got ready and then took a drink. Again different. I took another drink waited a bit and then another drink. I have to say it was not bad. Not bad at all. I think I have found a flavor that I can do better than just vanilla. A bit more expensive, but I know I can drink this. Now, what I have left of the vanilla I need to drink that up so I do not waste money.
Alright Readers, time is late and I need to get going. I did kenpo X and I am kind of beat. There is not much to update on that, but will do one tomorrow, pending how many more pictures that I need to upload to get my blogs updated.
I am not sure about tomorrow. A rest day or X Stretch. With the break I took this weekend I think I need to do X stretch. Though at the moment I am not sure.
Weather wise it is suppose to be mid 50's tomorrow and rainy so if it rainy when I leave work then that might decide whether or not I will do the routine. Being rained on when riding home sucks, but it is cold and wet and when I get home after a ride like that I like to take a shower and then curl up on the couch in my blanket/comforter.
Again Readers we will see.
Until the next time
