Today was a bit funny with my P90X.
I’m doing Ab Ripper in the office/exercise room. And all of the sudden, I hear…
“Play that funky music, white boy….”
It was my wife April starting Turbo Fire! I knew she was starting today, but that first bit of music really got my attention and had me chuckling a bit! But really, on to how things were today…
Biggest problem with Ab Ripper today was just what I described above: Distraction. I let my mind wander a bit too much. I was thinking about business stuff. I was wondering what April’s workout was like. I just got sidetracked mentally a bit at times and would have to pull myself back in. And when I did, I went hard, and I burned.
Legs and Back was an adventure. For most of it, I increased what I did over week 4. Balance lunges kick my butt…and, of course, they are the first thing out of the gate. It’s not that I have trouble with lunges. No, I have trouble with balance. Part of which is due to a chair with some cushion, and part of it because I have no ability to balance on my right leg. Odd, but true.
Pull-ups felt good today. I actually did quite a few full pull-ups, quite a few pulses, and then finished up using chair assist. I’m getting back to where I was before the injury and that feels good.
Nutrition was good today. I decided to eat a bit more at supper (chili still). Not a good idea. Haven’t felt right since doing it. Won’t make that mistake again.
Breakfast – Shakeology
Snack #1 – 1.5 oz Raisins
Lunch – Turkey Sandwhich, V8, apple
Snack #2 – Almonds
Snack #3 – TBD
FYI…I think I’m going to start moving away from milk. I love milk, don’t get me wrong. However, it makes me sleepy. I’m looking to switch to almond milk instead and working on finding other calcium sources (green veggies, almonds, and supplementation). When I make the move I’ll start documenting it. I do plan on still using cheese and yogurt since I do these in such small amounts.
