Day 37-P90X- Plyometrics

It is 7:20 p.m., and I have just done Plyometrics.. However, I must give a disclaimer. I only did half of it. Let me back up... I did make it to bed last night a little after 10:00. I was so tired, so sleep came pretty easy to me. I woke up at 3:45.. one of the perks of either middle age or menopause. I easily went back to sleep until my alarm rang at 5:15. Hit snooze.. ring again... hit snooze.. ring again.. turn off and go back to sleep. Yes, I made that decision to skip this morning. So today I went to work, ate terrible all day long. I ate part of my lunch at 5:00 on the way home from work. I had made the decision on my way home that I could still do my workout an hour later. Okay, the beginning of plyometrics which I started around 6:45 (hence, over an hour since eating) gave me plenty of time to have my food partially digested and I heard Tony say, " don't do plyometrics unless it has been an hour since eating." So I got going, and boy was I feeling nauseated. I kept plugging through it, and I thought, " okay, I will be done with this soon." And then... Tony said, " Okay, you are half way through boys and girls." What?!?! I am only half way through! I'm done. I gotta stop. I know I should have kept going, but I really was on the verge of vomiting. And really, on a scale of 1-10, I was probably doing a 7or 8. I still have to modify some of those jumps. I don't do the jump tucks- I either raise my knee up high or do a kick. I don't do the spin around after the left, right, left ski pole moves- I get dizzy and off balance so I do a squat turn. I don't do the Mary-Catherines- I do continuous lunges with my arms up in the air. I do everything else.. or at least everything else in the first half. So here is what I learned:
1. The best thing for me is to do my workout early.
2. If I do miss my workout, and decide to do it late in the day-absolutely do not eat ANYTHING!!!!
3. Get back on healthy eating-write it down, make a plan, stick with it.
So I think tomorrow is arms. I am slightly sore from the back and chest workout. I am just happy to be back in the groove. Maybe I actually will finish P90X before the end of the year!

I can definitely attest to all your points there! It has to be a good 2-3 hours after I've eaten before I can do plyo (or Insanity!)
