Day 1 of P90X (FINALLY!): Chest and Back + Ab Ripper

FINALLY, started P90X after having it collect dust on the coffee table for a few weeks. Here is my Day 1 overview.

I don't know, seriously, how any woman can get do P90X's Chest and Back DVD.  I sure as hell couldn't do all of the moves.  The workout itself was fine, but besides the pull-ups (waiting for my pull-up bar to get here in the mail) and push-ups, there were only a few other moves in the workout. What??  I cannot do a push-up. A REAL one.  I can only do so many on my knees at that, and in the DVD you do two "rotations" of about 3 or 4 different push-up variations. Ugh. Really?? Really.

Upper body strength is not my forte', so I wasn't that surprised, but for most of the DVD I just stood around.  Sure, I would get down and do as many wimp push-ups as I could, but I felt like my precious workout time was wasted.  I think from now on when this DVD comes up in the rotation of workout discs, I'll incorporate a run or 45 minutes on the elliptical.  The Ab Ripper DVD was, of course, a good workout.  Ab work is always a challenge. 

Tomorrow is Plyometrics--I have high hopes for this one.  Hoping it really gets me gasping for breathe.  haha Yes, I'm serious! I love the burn.

Otherwise, my eating was great today--trying to get back into the swing of things, and so far so good.  Excluding the teeny fact that I'm now craving cake and/or cookie batter with chocolate chips. BAH!! Funny, I didn't have this craving until "COULDN'T" have it. Go figure, right? Guess it also doesn't help I'm watching the history of chocolate on television. :-)

My time here in DC is winding down.  I think the count is 6 weeks, 2 days. Please don't get me wrong.  I like DC, getting great work experience here, but I miss Alabama, and I'm ready to settle down and unpack my LIFE! (For a few years anyway) I've been living out of a suitcase (or two) for 4.5 months now.  Strange way of life.  Brady (my Chihuahua) and I are ready to move into our new house :-)  Did I tell you guys I will be a first-time home buyer come November?? All I can do is daydream and decorate the house in my head--I know exactly how I want to decorate (minus the guest bedroom...ANY IDEAS? Colors, decor, etc? Would love to hear what you guys think.)

Here are a few photos of the house.  3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1 car garage.  I didn't get photos of the upstairs. Those and more will come in a few months!

Congrats on that adorable house! You and Brady will be so happy there! :)

I've heard a lot of good things about P90X (hope I typed that right). I'm too chicken to try it. LOL

Hope it works for you! :)
