So. I haven't updated in a while (story of my life) and I'm way off of where I should be. For the record, I DID get sick again for three days and I moved back out to school. Life has thrown me a few busy busy busy days in the past few weeks but I'm back on course and bringin' it hard core! I guess being busy isn't really an excuse, but a girl's gotta get some sleep in there somewhere! The important thing is that the past is in the past- all I can do now is change today.
I've started week three of phase 2 as of yesterday, and it feels great. While I was doing plyo today, I had sort of a revelation. See, as my blogs progressed and as I progressed through the program, I kept saying how much easier it was getting. Well, that's not really a good thing, is it? It just means that I wasn't pushing myself as hard as I should have been. I wasn't pushing it to the point where it wasn't easy. It shouldn't ever have been easy.
I was so proud of myself because I gained the ability to do more reps and more moves, and that IS something to be proud of, but not if I just stopped working hard after that. Yes, I was working, and working hard, but not hard enough. Not hard enough to where I was dead by the end. Not hard enough to where I was sore all day every day. I wasn't bringing it. I let myself plateau.
So, I BROUGHT IT today. And I'll be bringing it EVERY DAY for as long as I can- which hopefully will be a very long time. I just ordered P90X+ and I am more than pumped! It's going to be epic. I can feel it in my sore sore muscles.
