Well today marks the beginning of week 2 of my P90X study. After having completed week one I have to say the workouts are challenging and I can’t imagine being able to complete them if you didn’t have a good base level of strength and fitness. I was definitely sore after each workout, not incapacitated but aware of the muscles I had used. It was the perfect balance of sore but inspired to continue. The only workout I skipped was the yoga on Wednesday. I had a little too much wine the night before at my belated birthday celebration and just didn’t have it in me to workout. It’s important to listen to your body and know when to slow down. The workout should be looked at as a base to work from but not something cast in stone. Always modify as you need to make it your workout. That is the attitude I am following in both the workout and diet. I am performing the exercises as dictated but modifying if past injury or physical health demands it. The diet I am following but taking into consideration my food allergies and limitations, as well as my past eating disorder and need to control food. It has been a good eye opener on what I was eating too much of and what I wasn’t getting enough of . I am now eating every couple of hours and have increased my water intake on a daily basis. I definitely feel the benefits of both and I look forward to see how it all comes along in the next 30, 60 and 90 days. I will keep you posted on my progress and give examples of workouts incase you want to follow along.
Cheers and happy sweating!!!
