This morning didn’t come that easily. Im tired from long hours in the sun and lots of studying and the random tasks of life and I just didn’t want to do the whole legs&back workout. Nevermind adding on Ab Ripper X. But I just pushed though it and now Im so glad that I did because Im reaping the benefits of it and I have no regrets. Id love to go on and on about how inspired I feel blah blah blah but Im seeing some of my old friends for dinner tonight and Ive gotta go. Im so excited!!!! Ive already checked the menu and narrowed down the options to things that meet my allergy requirements and things that’ll fuel my workout tomorrow. And things I want enough to spend 20 bucks on them. Did I mention Im soooooo excited???
hahaaaa every day… gotta love New Britain….
Today was Plyo which left me drunk on endorphins and totally happy the rest of the day and thats how I feel now as I set up for Back&Biceps + Ab Ripper X tomorrow. It was a little hard to get up after my weekend break but I don’t regret it one bit and now I know for the rest of the week why I drag my body out of bed at 6 AM every morning even when its the summer. Its so worth it!!!! And I love that P90x challenges me and reminds me with growing muscles that its worth my time. I received the best compliment ever from a girl who works at JCrew. My mom and I have known her for a while and we stop by to say hi every once in a while and she told me that she thinks I have a great figure. She says Im thin so I can wear anything but Im not the average teenager-girl “I don’t wanna be fat,” kind of skinny. I have muscle definition and you can tell Im fit but not in a manly way. I am really so happy to have heard that cause that means Ive reached that point where other people begin to notice your progress which shows how far Ive come. Im so glad I started back when I did or Id have a lot longer to work before I got to hear todays compliment. Thats the kind of motivation that staring at pictures of cut models on Pinterest will never bring you. Ditching the daydreaming and working your ass off to become what you want is the real thing!!!
Ahhh ok THAT is my goal. And really I think just a few months of intense training, carful eating, and lots of laying in the sun can get me there. Today was plyo and I did my best work in that area yet, even though let’s just say this isn’t my week really for being on my game. Oh ooohhhh I almost forgot: insanity. Oh insanity I would like to take this moment to recite a Shakespearean ballad that I wrote in thy honor: Methinks thou art brutal but I hardly sense it at all. I skid across the floor and thrust punches at ze wall. Lower core was slightly sensitive in the morn, but Oh, happy day! The endorphins were more! The abundance of joy and gratitude my heart feeleth for thou art higher than Olympus…… Crap. I think I started to go French/Greek somewhere in there. I’m gonna go teenager and just say it kicked ass. I want it so bad…. I think I’ll buy it once I get past phase 2 of p90x and add it in for an ultimately beast workout. Insanity X. I like the sound of that :)
Just wanted to say that I went with my family to a cute little Mom and Pop breakfast diner and had nothing but black coffee while they had their pancakes and sausage and homefries. My family is over all very healthy and active and i swear we all naturally have less then 10% body fat so it would have been fine for me to take part with them, my genes are on my side, but insanity and p90x are approaching in 30 minutes, and I knew that would not be best for my muscles performance today :) I’m kind of really proud of myself right now!
Week 4 of p90x done which means I’m in the next level :) Confession: I felt too good to follow the recovery week plan. I did 2 days of it and made up harder things the other days. I’m beginning to wonder if that was a good idea…. Well I feel good right now so I guess I can be all cocky like , “heck yeah I don’t need no recovery week!” But watch I’ll come crawling back in a few weeks like “I should have listened!!” Ok well anyway, because you didn’t need my theatrics, I can get to what I really wanted to say which is that today my friend and I are doing insanity and then p90x.You heard me right. Both. Not really my idea but hey, I always knew I wanted to die doing something great and working out is like my favorite thing after all :p It’s gonna be déjà vu tomorrow when I’m in total pain and can’t walk down stairs and can only get on the couch if i fall backwards and collapse…. Just like 2 years ago when I started this craziness. On the plus side my fingers should still work (hopefully) so blogging will still be very much possible!! Ok random topic change: has anyone tried pb2? Is it worth the hype? Is it too expensive?? Should I convince my mother that its necessary for my survival so she’ll buy it for me??
