Day 23 P90X



Testing is coming up in Tang Soo Do. I am testing for my next 3 belts all together because of my black belt history. So I went to class last night thinking that it would be an easy class because our Master is out of town and we all needed to practice our forms. Instead, the highest black belt in the class was teaching.. and he put us through hell. The warm up had my abs screaming out in pain...then wall squats for 3 min at a time.. then bear crawls, push ups and running. This was just the warm up!!! Then we went up and down the gym doing jumping kicks, spinning kicks, any kicks that he could think of. THEN we did forms...8 of them, twice. Then we did our staff forms (a 6' pine staff) twice. Then we put on our pads and sparred. I have some nasty looking bruises and some sore muscles! BUT IT WAS AWESOME!! I had to go up to him after class and say THANK YOU... I probably dropped 5 lbs in that class alone.

On top of that I did my Yoga class in the morning. I think that helped me during class because I was already stretched out and loose. (I still hate yoga)

Yesterdays calories were 1520. It was fairly easy to stick to my plan. I think it helps me to have my food for the day already written out...

Today's Plan:

Core Synergistics
walk, walk, walk

Focus: WWIB, water...lots of water!!

Saw this today:

and thought of you. Well, strictly speaking, first I thought of me... then I thought that you also would appreciate it. It's by my favorite writer, about the negative things we tell ourselves, and it's kind of a redemption story. I think you'll like it.

I also find that it's easier to stick to an eating plan when it's actually planned. Your class sounded like great fun.
