Well, I'm not sure why I was so nervous about this...I LOVED IT! It shouldn't surprise me though, I LOVE this P90X program! I did 9 pushups in a row, the REAL kind, the STANDARD kind. I never went super low, but I got lower than I did before. I am getting stronger day by day, and it's a fabulous feeling. I did my best, even if it meant doing some of the exercises the modified way. I'm sweating like a piggy, but I feel fantastic. I like this WAAAAAY better than Yoga X...(which I'm sure I'll start to love in the last month...or the second round of P90X.) This one exercise called Reach High and Under Push-ups...yeah, that one scard me. When I saw what he was doing, I said "oh right! I can't do that!" Then after a few minutes of indecision, I thought "oh, hell" and I gave it a shot, fully not expecting to be able to do it. But the whole point is to attempt it, right? So I did. And I was shocked. I could do it. So I did it again. And I kept doing it right along with them...not as fast, so not as many...but I did it! I broke a mind barrier today.
Note to self...stop being skeptical! Own your strength!
