Day 1 of Restarting P90X

Posted on: February 1, 2010

I’m not sure how many people read this that don’t already follow my other blog, but for those who don’t know….I got laid off on Friday. It wasn’t exactly a surprise, I knew it was coming (just not when), and I’m ok with it, I guess. No anger, no panic (thanks to my savings), and to be honest….I was a tiny bit excited.

First one my reasons for my excitement: I can take some time off and have no excuses for not working out! lol. (I know, I’m weird.) Since I’d been expecting to get laid off for a few months, I found myself thinking relatively often “well, I’ll be able to do [this] once I’ve been laid off.” Anyway, since today was my first day with no work I decided it would be a good day to start back up with P90X. I’m following the “lean” schedule, so today’s workout was Core Synergistics.

In conclusion: I’ve either gotten way out of shape again, or something just wasn’t right because at one point I found myself getting dizzy (and almost seeing spots), and after that I had to wimp out on a lot of parts. Maybe I’m dehydrated? Malnutritioned? (I had french toast for breakfast though.)Either way, I’m going to try again tomorrow and hope it goes a bit better. Tomorrow is the cardio workout, so it’s a short one.

As far as my weight goes, while I haven’t updated my Weight loss tracking page on the site, I do have a very detailed spreadsheet on my desktop that’s tracking my actual weight versus where I should be if I assume I want to lose 1 pound a week. Right now I’ve been holding steady at 160 for a few days, but I’m hoping that goes down! As of next Friday I’m “supposed” to be at 159. How exciting! It’s been months since I’ve weighed in the 150’s.

So that’s that. I actually still have my running group tonight, but it’s been raining so hard all day that I’m not sure I want to go. The weather channel doesn’t predict that it’ll stop, however since they meet “rain or shine” there will still be a meeting. I’m feeling kind of lazy and running in the rain doesn’t sound particularly pleasant, however it would be a bit of an adventure. So part of me is leaning towards going. I’ll just make sure to take a towel so my car doesn’t smell like wet dog.
