If, instead, it has you cringing... then you have felt the pain that is P90X.
I have only done two days so far of this workout and I have muscles speaking to me that haven't spoken in a long time. Really long time. Ouch. Let me just say the Chaturunga Run is pure torture - and I could only do it physically for a second or two!
I will admit - I succumbed to the 5:30 am infomercial and ordered this workout system a while back. It's been sitting in my poop brown office waiting to be used all this time and I finally got off my arse and decided to get to work. I haven't really invested alot in taking care of my body since my children came along... and with my age getting higher and certain parts getting lower, I thought now was the perfect time.
The diet part I haven't quite committed to yet cause, let's face it: when you have kids, you have "junk" food around. I don't think my first grader would appreciate me packing her a protein bar instead of chips in her lunch box, if you know what I mean. The hard part is not eating it when those hunger pangs hit - the instant satisfaction offered by a carb-loaded snack is something I've grown used to over the years and it's a hard habit to break. (As is my chocolate habit...) I do find that I am a little more conscious of what's going into my body seeing as I know how hard I'll be working that body later - if any of you have any great protein smoothie recipes, send them my way (palatable, please!).
I missed today's workout due to having a day filled with dropoffs and work and pickups and quick dinner and gymnastics and home and baths and brushing teeth and reading. Not a lot of time there to break a sweat (other than in the 110 degree car). Believe it or not, after feeling the initial burn, I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow morning's Cardio X routine.
I'll let you know how I feel about it after I'm finished.
If it involves a Chatarunga Run... you can already guess how I'll be feeling.
What about you? Any new workout routines motivating you to get up and get moving?
