I have decided that this week I will take a temporary leave from P90X and concentrate on the treadmill. I couldn't do the treadmill for a while now because of my heel. But now that my heel is healed I can do it again. This Sunday is the Frosty 5K. The weather has been nice, mild even, so just watch it be -30 C on Sunday. Ha. It's going to feel good doing the treadmill. Next Monday, my hubby and I will be back at P90X, we're going to count it as week 2 even tho we had some stops and starts. Last week was good, except that I made a conscious decision to forgo the workout on the weekend. I've been really tired lately...so last night, I chose to go to bed instead of working out. My kids have been sick..SO NOT FUN...which complicates the whole workout-in -the-day thing. I'm still in it mentally. I'm getting back in it physically. My body takes a hit when I'm stressed out or exhausted...so the goal is to build myself back up to keep this downward trend happening. Happily, I broke through a plateau, and I am only 18 pounds away from Onederland. I am SO STOKED. I'm hoping to be there by April 1. Ahhhhh! It is TOTALLY doable. Just gotta keep focused, and keep doin it.
I'm the mother of 3 beautiful girls. Somewhere along the line, I lost myself, and now
I am on a journey of rediscovery, of health and happiness which includes losing the weight that is holding me back from really enjoying life. I found The Gabriel Method (www.gabrielmethod.com )back in March and have been working that since. I believe he's got the key. In addition, I am on a self-imposed refined-sugar-free/gluten-free eating lifestyle. Exercise has become something that I love, that I crave, that I truly enjoy, thanks to discovering P90X. P90X is challenging, and killer, and awesome! Going Primal Baby! Blogging about this journey is going to be interesting.
