P90x Week 3 - going strong

Hey there Bloggy friends. I am almost done with week 3. I am so glad I decided to have a do over, I have been having some kickass workouts. After Back & Chest/Ab ripper on Monday, I did Plyometrics on Tuesday, Shoulders & Arms on Wednesday and today I did Kenpo X and plan to do Ab ripper on lunch.

I am getting much better at the Plyometrics DVD. It is so damn tough, but I love it. I really plan to keep it in my weekly plans after P90x. I have a lot of improving to do and can’t imagine I will ever be able to do all the moves as well as Tony. Boy is that man flexible! I did Kenpo this morning and it makes me feel like a uncoordinated oaf. I just focus on the punching, I cannot get the foot movements down to save my life. I really cannot express how much I am loving P90x. I love not having to go out in the cold and run, I love that I get to sleep in a little in the morning, I love how sore I feel all over my entire body! However, I do have creeping feelings of worry about my running. I have only run 4 times since Dec 11! That is unheard of for me, it’s very weird and I cannot shake the feeling that I am going to regret this. I really do need to make sure I am running more than once a week and I will do that moving forward. But it’s cold out there ya’ll!

My weight is finally starting to go down and I can tell a difference in my arms for sure!

My poor little monkey is so sick. I stayed home with her the past 2 days from work and Gary is on duty today/tomorrow. She has had a really high fever and has been so lethargic. It is heart breaking. She is taking about a 3 hour nap, so I had time both days to do some more cleaning and organizing of the house. This weekend we are meeting with realtors, I am so excited! Have any of you sold your house recently? Any tips or questions you think I need to ask?

Just stumbled upon your blog and great job! I too, run a lot but it just seems overkill to me to still run and do the p90 program. I know I can sub my cardio days with running but I like those videos too (plyo/cardiox/synergistics). Anyhow, we're gonna follow you - we are almost done with week 2 and totally feelin the soreness. we did kenpo today. Hope you (and your readers) will follow us - we keep a video blog. Figured the more people who follow the less we can flake out of finishing :) http://ssfitexpress.blogspotcom

Speedy recovery for your lil' one. :(

Love that you're seeing results! Keep it up!
Good luck with the realtors. Selling can be so stressful (for me, at least since I'm not a very patient person). :)

Awww, I hope she feels better soon! Sounds like her fever is working hard to fight! And my advice for selling is tell your realtor you would like to get a discount on your title work from your blogger friend's title company! Seriously, email me! :)

So great to hear that you are getting awesome results as well. P90x will really help you with your marathon training! Great luck. I did the program and post often on my blog as well at if you care to jump over and take a look. GREAT blog, love it!

I refuse to run in the snow...hence all the dreadmill complaining...

Good job with the p90. I've never met anyone who has actually finished the program...(:

Love your blog!
I am LOVING P90x too....Today is my rest day of Week 6. I'm loving the results.

I am a wannabe runner. Its like, I want to be able to run...but I haven't gotten to the point where I enjoy it yet. I did my first 5k last year. But I stopped running once it got cold. I will finish P90x in March, and by then it will have warmed up here. But with the Plyo and Legs - I am really hoping it will give me a better foundation to build on my running and endurance.

Good Luck! I'll be following along with you!

Also, hope your realtor appt. goes well and that your li' one feels better soon!
