Yesterday, I was so tired. I felt like I had barely any energy to do miniscule tasks, like stay awake for work. I was falling asleep whenever I had to sit at my desk. It was unbearable, so I left 10 minutes early and just went home. Once I arrived, I went straight to my room and took a nap. I eventually woke up again at 19:30, and I proceeded to eat dinner in my zombie like state. As I slowly woke up more, I resolved to do the p90X workout of the day. Boy, was that a mistake. Legs & Back was so difficult. My thighs and calves were screaming from the pain, especially during the leg lift wall squats and the sneaky lunges. The only thing that got me through this workout was the idea that I would have a beautiful butt and thighs. Also, the inner geek in me was praising me for increasing my sneak level (that’s for all Elder Scrolls Fans out there). Once that work out was done, I did Ab Ripper X. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was better at certain exercises, such as: Oblique V-ups, bicycles, and the leg climb. However, I was still hopeless with the Rollup/V-up combos.
Overall, I was happy that I did the workouts. Not only did I feel proud that I stuck with it, but after my workout, my chocolate milk recovery drink tasted like ambrosia! So it was definitely worth it. It also helped that I stuck to the diet, but I’m starting to think that the diet is the reason why I’m so tired and lethargic. Protein does not provide enough energy for these intense workouts and daily function. But, I guess if I want to shred fat, I need to stick with it. So far I’ve been really good with the P90X plan. I’ve been following the diet and pushing myself in the exercises. Today for example, I’ve already planned and prepped all my meals so that I meet my goals for the day. I’m really sore from last nights workout, but I’m definitely looking forward to Kenpo X tonight.
