I got p90x for Christmas and I am so excited. I have been wanting to try it for a long time now and even did a blog post on it for BeachBody not to long ago. Yesterday was my first day and it was intense. I plan on doing my measurements and taking pics sometime this week. I did not do the fit test but maybe I will try to sometime this week if I can. The only thing on their fit test I know I can't do is the pull ups. I never really do push-ups or pull ups so it was challenging.
I felt really good after the first workout which was chest and back followed by ab ripper. When I woke up to get my daughter off to school today I was surprised that I felt no pain at all. I really expected to be in pain because after the workout I really felt spent. Well by this afternoon I started to feel the pain. It pretty much rocked my entire body.
I was happy to feel the pain. No pain No gain!
I am following the nutrition plan book that came with the program. I landed in the level 1 1800 calories a day group. I read over some of their recipes but some of them were just too fancy for me. I also cannot eat peppers, green, red, or other. I also cannot eat garlic as much as I like it, it hates me. Eating these things gives me a bad belly ache and I just feel horrible the rest of the night. I have so far really enjoyed the changes to my diet and feel great!
Here is what I ate yesterday:
I woke up late so lunch/breakfast was a chicken salad made with romaine lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, carrots, feta cheese, and yogurt ranch. I also had a cup of strawberries.
My snack was a string cheese.
For dinner I had rotisserie chicken, 1 cup of wild rice, and veggies.
I have to work out in the evenings because hubby works late so after workout I had a protein bar and shake.
Because I missed breakfast I ate a light and fit yogurt for snack later that evening.
I must say I felt full all day. I normally eat dinner around 4pm but was not hungry so waited until 6pm. I feel great other than I am really sore which that will be less and less the more I do the program. The workouts have been very challenging and I like the change and newness of it.
I will keep you posted on everything as I do this program. I will try to post as often as I can.
