Heidi’s P90X Journey – P90X Week 3

I made it through P90X Plyometrics this week!  Can I get a whoop whoop..?   There is a move in there that gives me a whole new respect for Molly Shannon.  Appropriately called the “Mary Katherines”,  they are lunges where you hop back and forth between right leg in front and left leg in front.  Good lord, that’s difficult.  I remember when Molly Shannon did those in her MK skits on SNL, and it didn’t look hard at all.  It looked funny, yes.  Hard, no.  Trust me, they are hard.  The version of MK on P90x doesn’t include the hands in the armpits, though, so that made them a little easier.

Heidi – P90X Week 2 Completed!

Heidi P90X Kenpo XThis is a guest post by Heidi.

I’m glad that week 2 is over.  I  had trouble this week, but I still made it through.  Not only did I make it through, but I’m  improving, so that is encouraging.  Improving slowly, but still improving.

I realized this week that I’m actually going to have to purchase some heavier dumbbells.  For the record, I only had girly dumbbells, 3, 5 and 8 pounds before, so I’m not that strong yet,  but it’s still progress.  I found some 10 pounders at WalMart last night for a decent price, so I’m set for week 3.  That sure sounds wussy when I see it in writing, but double-digit dumbbells are better than a double-digit wardrobe, so that’s my focus.  Increase the number on the dumbbells and decrease the number on the tags in my clothes.

Week 1 – Completed!

Well, I have survived the first week of P90X.  I had good days and bad, but just the fact that I completed the whole week with no injuries, no diet disasters, no crying and no quitting makes me quite pleased with myself.

heidi's p90x journeySomehow I convinced my 16 year old daughter to join me, and she has been quite a trooper.  She’s done several of the workouts with me,  she and her sister both did the initial fit test, and they’ve both been willing to try new foods, which is very strange for them.  We have always been carboholics.   Eating chicken and vegetables is a new concept.  I have to say, I’m quite proud – and somewhat shocked –  that they’re playing along so willingly.  Thanks, girls!

Heidi’s P90X Workout Journey

This is a guest post by Heidi.

I am no athlete.  Let’s just get that out in the open right now.  I ran track in the 7th grade, but that’s just because it was the only sport you didn’t have to try out for.  After coming in dead last in every race, I gave up on my career as a runner.  I took an Irish Dance class and competed for about 6 years, starting when I was 29. I enjoyed it a great deal, but it was hard on my joints.  I’m getting old.   I gave it up a few years ago, and I’ve been putting on the pounds slowly ever since.

I’ve always wanted to be fit, but have never made it a priority.  Actually, let me take that back.  It’s not that I necessarily wanted to be fit – it’s that I don’t want to look like a middle-aged mom with a muffin top.  Vain?  Yes, I know.  But – I am tired of looking in the mirror and being disgusted with myself.   I’m not huge,  I realize that.  I’m just squishy and bigger than I’d like to be.
