Day 12 P90X....Yoga!



Today I woke up a little sore. Yoga was harsh last night but it felt fantastic. If you don't like to do cardio or weight lifting you should definitely look into taking a yoga class. You work every muscle in your body just by putting your body in different positions. You also get to work on your balance doing poses like 'the tree' and 'the crane'. I HATE yoga...but I LOVE yoga!

Today is the start of week 2 in my challenge! I cant believe I managed to do 42 miles last week. Actually, my body CAN believe it did that much last week. I am feeling %100 different. By different I mean that my muscles are tight but flexible... my waist is being drawn in... my legs are strong and my balance is fantastic. My weight? Hasn't changed but I am not worried about that right now. I am not taking any days off from working out so my muscles are holding on to a lot of water. If you have been reading for a while you will remember that my weigh in was on Monday mornings...Sunday was my rest day and it allowed my body to heal and let go of all the water. With this P90X program I am working out every day accept Wednesday... last week I walked 6 miles that day (for the challenge). This week I might just make it an official rest day and make up the miles on another day.

Today's Plan:

Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
Belly Dancing class
walk, walk, walk

Focus: water and calories

I am going tanning tonight before class. Hey! I cant get all fit and gorgeous for the summer and then be too white to show it off!!! LOL

See you tomorrow!

Oh...you've just reminded me: I need a tan really, really bad.

I think a "rest day" is a great idea! It will give your muscles a chance to repair themselves after all of that hard work....and they'll be able to do more afterwards.

You're doing so great, Tigerlilly! You've got a fab attitude, and it's really fun to read what you're up to.

42 miles is amazing!!!!!

That is excellent.

Yesterday I did yoga with a DVD. A question I have wanted to ask for a while - Do other people struggle to do the Child's Pose?

My wife has started tanning for the exact same reason. =)

Dang Tigerlilly, you are such an inspiration to me right now. You are seriously doing what I aspire to right now. Keep it up!

"I HATE yoga...but I LOVE yoga!" This is EXACTLY how I feel about Pilates!
