Currently, I am working through the following P90X videos:

01 Chest and Back
02 Plyometrics
03 Shoulders and ARms
05 Legs and Back

NEVER MIND! That's too hard on my joints right now.

As of July 18, 2010, I'm doing the Urban Rebounder, Intermediate Level.

Oh, never mind. As of Aug 8, 2010, I working through a beginner's running program.

No Workout Again

This morning I was woken at 5:30 am to the sound of tornado sirens and had no power. So, I woke three sleeping teenagers and took them to the basement until the threat appeared to have subsided. I still had no power until about 9:30 am. By that time I had worn myself out feeding and watering the meat chickens.

Sunday Weigh-In

Thursday, I did the 05 Legs and Back P90X workout. Instead of doing only the first 4 lower body moves, I did the NEXT five moves (minus the back moves).

Friday, I woke early and, with a friend, spent 3 hours weeding the garden. (Getting closer to finishing the dense weeding)

I have lost 3 pounds since last week. I'm not surprised, though. It always seems that the first week I loose an amazing amount of weight and then it begins to lose more slowly.

Today's Weight: 1(?)3.0

I still have a lot distracting me from working out every day. Mainly, the garden!

Weeding, Weeding and More Weeding

I woke early this morning to weed the garden for over 2 hours with someone who offered to help me. I did not work out. I am, though, very sore all over my body, including my triceps :) Last night I only had one thin slice of cake and a large chocolate strawberry. Had I not been resisting I would have had a slice from each of the three cakes we were taste-testing and a couple more yummy strawberries. But, I was resisting...

03 Shoulders and Arms

I woke again this morning and worked out a second day in a row! Today I made it through FOUR sets of the P90X's Shoulders and Arm routine (I used 10 lbs weights for each of the first 3 moves, and 5 lbs for all the rest). I have to admit that I didn't do the chair dips - just really didn't feel like doing those this morning. Only had to stop 3 times to vacuum up those gross centipedes. Then, I worked for 2 hours in the garden pulling weeds using a short stool my daughter had been using (I snatched it away - she's young and doesn't need it! :)

I'm a bit sore today from yesterday. At least I can still walk.

I ate pretty well yesterday and the only "junk" I had was a bowl of popcorn that I finished off this morning. Tonight will be tough as I'll have to resist cake. We are having a cake decorating activity at church. Can I make it?

05 Legs and Back

Today I woke up and worked out with the P90X 05 Legs and Back. I did 4 exercises and they about killed me. To top it off, I spent about 10 extra minutes during the workout fighting centipedes. We have this very nicely finished, walk-out basement that seems to be calling centipedes from across the nation. I spent the first 20 minutes before the workout vacuuming them up and then continued to do so as they appeared throughout the workout. I don't know why we are fighting this battle, but it's very gross and irritating, for sure! It's raining this morning, so I've been blessed with not having to go out and weed the garden after wearing out my lower body. Good thing, too, as I can barely stand right now. This is why I was resisted the last couple of weeks to both workout and weed the garden. Tomorrow should be easier as I will be doing the arms and shoulders workout; but, I expect that my lower body will be very sore :)

Sunday Weight-In

Maybe sometime soon I will post something other than Sunday Weight-In's! I was nervous this morning knowing that I would be weighting-in. I didn't expect to see anything good. I had spent another week without any workouts (still weeding the garden). Then, I went out of town for a Youth Conference and ate lots of yummy food that are great for the pallet and terrible for the body. When I returned home I enjoyed my bi-annual strawberry shortcake. Today, my DD made us brownies. So, no surprise when I weighted myself and found:

Today's Weight: 1(?)6.8!!!!!!

I have returned to my original weight from when I started this journey eight weeks ago! So, I've decided that I will workout every morning this week BEFORE I weed the garden. I will need to bring a stool out for me to sit on because there is no way I'll be able to stand and weed as I've been doing. I am completely disgusted that I've done this AGAIN! I want to loose the weight and keep it off, not make room for gaining more!

Sunday Weight-In

Again, why do I even bother. This week was worse than the week before. On Monday I did the 03 Shoulders and Arms workout through three routines. Reducing the weight did help. Then, I went to work in the garden for an hour pulling huge weeds from the onions. I continued to do that every morning all week long. I still need to finish it this week and move on to the green beans. I just couldn't get enough energy to do both, workout and work in the garden. I'm not a physical labored type of person and I needed to choose the more important task of weeding the garden. Unfortunately, I also ate like a pig. I had a couple of ice-cream cones from DQ, helped eat a couple of bags of chips, and had a kit-kat or two. Uughh! So, I've determined that this week I will eat right despite not planning to workout.

Today's weight: 1(?)5.0

So, I'm almost back to where I started. I always seems to be starting over.
