Round 2- Days 32-46

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.


  1. I did the same thing too! I would do 60 seconds of non-stop Jump Knee Tucks or Rock Star Hops. Sure I would get winded, but it was amazing once I found out I could!

    Keep crushing play!

  2. That's great- 60 seconds of jump knee tucks is fierce. I'm still working towards that! For now, 30 seconds works just fine for me. But I feel INCREDIBLE after all is said and done. It's a beautiful thing.

  3. Thanks for the gut check. I'll be sure to push myself harder just because of this post! Way to go and thanks for your honesty!!

  4. No problem- that's what we're all here for- to support each other!
