Yesterday was my first day back "on track" for my weight loss journey. I tried p90x (I am doing the Lean schedule) and guess what? I loved it! Or at least, I loved my first day.
I am a tiny bit sore today. I expected that though, it's been a really loooong time since I have really worked out, and the p90x program is a tough workout. The program gives you about a bazillion warnings that it is for people who are already in shape and not for most people, blah blah blah. I consider myself tough and prior to my pregnancy (and during pregnancy) I was still pretty tough. Not too many people will continue kickboxing until 7 months pregnant! :) The workout actually reminded of kickboxing, which is probably why I enjoyed it. I did have to do some things modified, but for the most part I was able to keep up. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I didn't really lose any of my flexibility from before. And I was not surprised to see that I had lost most of my strength and my cardiovascular strength is gone too.
I had Zoe on the floor with me so she could exercise at the same time. She did some baby push-ups and lots of "bananas" and "supermans". (which means she rolled all the way around the living room) If you want to know what bananas and supermans are, leave a comment, I'll explain in tomorrow's post. For those of you reading this that are familiar with this exercise ...I'm a sick individual, I actually enjoy doing these! :)
I think it will be just a few weeks and I will feel like "me" again and the weight will just start melting off again. :) I will report back again tomorrow and let you know how tonight's workout goes. We shall see if I still feel like I like the program! haha!
