Yesterday: P90X Chest & Back, Insanity Cardio Abs

Today: Plyometric Cardio Circuit

It is amazing how much more energy I have when I exercise. I HATED taking that much time off. By the end, I was exhausted all the time and no amount of sleep would help.

power jumping and push ups are definitely my weak points..My way of thinking was to get fit enough to do this but then it dawned on me the best way to get fit is to plug away on it by doing Insanity..It isn't going to be pretty and i may spend much of the workout screaming mercy but hey I can only get better by doing it and sticking to it...

Monday: Chest and Back, Ab Ripper X
Tuesday: Pure Cardio

Tonight is Shoulders and Arms, and am doing the Cardio Abs along with Legs and Back on Fri.

I had to fight allergies from hell, so I switched around the Ab Ripper X with the Cardio Abs for this week in order to reduce the cardio until I could get some recovery and sleep in plus get allergy shots and Zycam.

"Very cool! Go you on those power knees--I HATE that exercise, lol"

I used to hate that one, but I have grown to like it now. I do them like Tonya - something like 10-15 at a shot then take a quick 3-5 second rest, then another round of them.

I'M ALIVE! I had to double my dose of Zyrtec so I could continue the cardio given it's now intense allergy season on top of the cold, dry air (ugh!) but am now on week 3 of the program. I'm doing week 3 twice cause last week was insane. But I got to turn in two writing manuscripts, one of which had a deadline.

Sunday:
Yoga X
Monday:
Chest and Back, Ab Ripper X
Tuesday:
Pure Cardio

Tonight is Shoulders and Arms, and next week is recovery week. I originally had month 2 Insanity cardio but may switch out with month 1 depending on how I feel.

Still bringing it and digging deeper!

Was wondering where you have been! Are you still doing P90X/INSANITY? How are your results?

I spent an entire month and a half fighting the same sinus infection over and over again, am hoping to hop back into it this week now that I'm in a new job (got laid off on Wed, job offer on Fri).
