P90X Day 53 Completed: X Stretch

P90X X Stretch Back Up The Car

P90X X Stretch Back Up The Car

For some reason I had in my head that today was Core Synergistics! I had the Core Synergistics workout in my DVD player with the TV on, my dumbbells setup, and everything else ready to go!  I then just so happened to look at my P90X workout calendar before I was about to start and I saw that today was X Stretch! I was actually a little disappointed because I was in the mindset that today was Core and I was ready to bring it! O well, I’ll just have to wait for tomorrow to do Core Synergistics!

It turned out to be a great day for X Stretch! Some of my muscles were still sore from Core Synergistics on P90X Day 51, so it felt really good to stretch them out. I tried to push myself during the stretches to get deep as I could without over doing it. I’m actually now able to touch my toes on my left and right leg during the Seated Single-Leg Hamstring Stretch (prior to P90X, I could never touch my toes during this stretch)!  All of the stretching that I’ve done during P90X has really improved my flexibility. I may have to refer to myself as a “somewhat flexible” person versus a “completely inflexible” person by the end of P90X!

Nutrition for today-

Breakfast: Bowl of Fiber One cereal, and a protein shake.

Mid-Morning: Protein shake.

Lunch: Left overs from dinner last night. We ended up having meatloaf for dinner last night. It was made with lean ground turkey versus beef, so it was actually pretty healthy (and tasted good too)!

Mid-Afternoon: I had an orange prior to X Stretch and then a protein shake after wards. I ate the orange for energy since I thought I had to do Core Synergistics.

Dinner: I think tonight we are keeping it simple and having sandwiches (maybe turkey sandwiches?). We are then going out grocery shopping because we’re running low on everything!

After-Dinner: Protein shake.
