Day 69-P90X- Chest and Back
When that alarm goes off at 5:00 a.m. I have such trouble dragging myself out of bed. My husband remarked about how he did not know how I did that... bragging on me. I have to say, " It ain't easy!!!" It can go either way- I can lay there and talk myself out of it, or lay there and finally say to myself, " Let's do it!" And I don't know what motivates me more- hearing someone say something good like- you are really looking good, or someone say something bad- like you know you are never going to be a small person. Well, I just don't know... until I was 38 years old, I was a small person. But that was a long time ago. However, I still have not given up that idea. Am I crazy? In denial? I cannot measure my success by weight loss or I would have quit a long time ago. I am rarely sick, I take no medication except for thyroid pills, and I seem to be able to keep up pretty good. So back to my workout... I did the chest and back workout today. I did it pretty much the way that I always do- the first set up pushups I do 15 from the feet and 10 from the knee. And when we do the second set, I do 10 from the feet and 15 from the knee. I seemed to have an easier time of it. I also did the decline pushups, but that really seems to put alot of pressure on my back. I did up the weights to 12 lbs when doing the heavy pants, the lawnmowers, and the bent over pullups. I also will add that when doing the pushups, I really tried to make myself go lower. I often wonder which would be better - doing more pushups and not going down real low or doing the opposite- doing less pushups but going lower to the floor. Someone want to give their opinion about this. Today I did not do as well with the water. I was at work, and I seemed to never have a chance to drink any water today. I ate a couple of those bran muffins so I figure I did get my fiber. No Dr. Pepper for me today and I did my exercise. So, I am still meeting my goals each day. I think tomorrow is plyometrics. I need to get to it early because I am leaving to go to big D to see the grandbaby. I missed her so much at Thanksgiving. My daughter and I will try to get in a little shopping. So, I don't know if I will be able to squeeze in any workouts on Friday and Saturday. But I will sure try.
