Days 5 and 6, Legs Back and Kenpo X

Well, I meant well to post every day.  However, when you do 2 P90x workouts in less than 12 hours, I didn't have time for much else.

I'll start off with yesterday, got a haircut, got home and went straight into Legs and Back.  I love this workout.  As a former long distance and track runner, I rarely worked out my legs.  It was a big no-no for us.  So, this is a workout that will help build strength in a weak area.  I was able to use my new Power Blocks for the first time.  They worked great.  My pull up bar arrived at home, and I'll be able to ditch the bands once I get home and put it together.  The back workout suffered because the bands don't give me the intensity I need.

This morning, I rolled out of bed at 5:45 and started Kenpo X promptly at 6:00 am.  

Kenpo X is tough.  It made me realize how little flexibility I have in my body.  I need to keep it up and I'm sure the flexibility will come.  Also, some of the moves in this DVD require a bit more coordination than this pasty white guy currently possesses.  By the end of the DVD I was getting the hang of most of the moves.

So, this is the first time I've worked out 6 days in a row since college.  My diet has been spot on this week.  I even ate plain oatmeal yesterday.  Yup, when the waitress brought out the brown sugar (I love brown sugar) I pushed it aside and ate plain oatmeal (with a little milk.)

I'm also totally done with caffeine.  I have cut most pop/soda out.  I had a Diet Pepsi Max two days ago after not having soda for a couple days.  I had a headache within 5 minutes.  So, water only for me.

Take care all!  Bring It!
