- I'm starting P90X this week after a long layoff.
- This is one of the weeks every so often that I need to cover the office at my job.
When it becomes a 5-day a week trip, its stressful. But here's what I'm thinking. If I can manage to get a full week of P90X in without any missed workouts this week, then how much easier will it be in later weeks when I don't have the challenges of a 3 hour commute each day.
Last night, I got home, and went straight into shoulders and arms. I'm not using the same weight that I used to. But, I picked slightly lighter weight then previous runs of P90X and focused on quality form throughout.
Ab Ripper X still sucks. I "presently struggle with" most of the exercises. I have a weak lower back and long legs. Moves like "fifer scissors" absolutely tear me up. I have terrible form, can't get full vertical extension with my legs, and can't even keep up. I'll definitely improve, but this move has always been my weak spot.
Diet yesterday was good. Monica and I signed up for a grocery shopping and meal planning service called e-Mealz. It's a great service. Not only can you save money on food for your family by having a thoughtful planning list for your both your meals and shopping list, you can get healthy too. We are currently enrolled in their "Wal-Mart Low Carb meal plan for 2." This provides us a shopping list and meal planning for the entire week. We're saving money and have good, quality low carb meal choices to choose from. Last night's dinner was a cream cheese egg dish. It tasted great.
Well, that's all for now. Back to work. Yoga X tonight.
