So this is a day late. (My first entry and I'm already slacking off...) But yesterday was day 1 doing P90X. I started out with the chest and back DVD since it was the first one. Might as well go in order, right? Anyways, it was pretty intense. Nothing I haven't seen before, but since I have zero upper body strength, it was quite a challenge to stick with it all the way through. I wasn't too sore after the workout, and a shower totally solved any pain I was feeling. But when I woke up this morning... HOLY CRAP! My arms, chest, and back are on FIRE! I couldn't even pick up my four-year-old brother. Not good. Yet, so so good. Pain is good, right? Speaking of my brother (Daniel)... he is the best motivator EVER! He did the workout with me yesterday and watched part of the time, and when I wasn't doing a move right or if I was resting when I shouldn't be, he would tell me so. "Katey! You're not doing it right! Do it like the guy on the tv!" or "Katey! Keep going! You're not supposed to be finished yet." I think having him around for this will be good for me.
"Before" pictures still to come. Or maybe I'll wait to post them until my "Day 30" pictures... I don't know. I'm not really proud of my "day 1" look, so I'm not really keen on sharing them with everyone.
I'm not following the diet outlined by the program, but I am watching what I eat. We'll see if it makes a difference.
Any other P90X-ers out there? I'd LOVE to hear about your journey, thoughts, and results! Have a blog? Comment me the link and I'll check it out- we're all in this together. I could definitely use the support!!!
Off to do day 2...
