PostHeaderIcon My P90X Journey: Day 10

Today was tough. I was dragging my heels all day. By the time I worked out my stomach hurt and I was hungry. I pushed through. Oh man. Intense.

I can’t wait until it comes naturally. Will it?

Day 9 is coming to a close. I have now worked out hard for 9 days straight. Unbelievable. I never would have imagined that I could, and I constantly worry that I won’t have the strength to push myself on. I do see the end game and I want to win.

I can see how athletes get into a zone. You kind of separate mind and body while working hard. Interesting. I could get used to this.

Ouch. Ouch and more ouch. Seriously. I have now completed three of the workouts on P90X. Today I did it during the kid’s nap. This was a struggle for me as I have gotten my body trained to eat lunch at that time. I am really married to their schedule! Since we have plans this evening, planning the workout into my daily routine was a must. It’s really all about planning and sacrifice. Actually, in my mind it is really more about a vision. My vision is me looking fabulous in shorts on my 37th birthday.  No real progress report thus far as I have tried to steer clear of the scale, but I ache and I know that skinny hurts. If you are thinking about this, here is a rundown of my daily diet. Keep in mind that I am a vegetarian (sometimes pescetarian).

Breakfast: Shake with nonfat Greek yogurt, banana and vegan protein

Lunch: Salad with homemade Greek dressing and feta cheese, 6 egg white omlette and 1 whole wheat bagel thin

Snack: Protein bar

Dinner: Fish or homemade black bean burgers (2-3), vegetable soup, whole wheat bagel thin
