Judging from your comments on my BBQ/flower post, it sounds like many of you are NOT experiencing Spring just yet. Hang in just a little longer – it’ll be here sooner than you know it!
I was looking through some old photo albums on the computer from when we lived in Florida (we lived there while I was going to school for my M.A. in Psychology from 2007-2009). Check out this picture from just outside our back door, Spring 2008.
Aww, see all the baby duckies? I would save stale bread to feed the guys.
Nothing better after a long, hard day of work than to walk out back and feed the babies! Perks up my spirits, at least.
And now that I’m one full week into P90X, I wanted to give my first-week reactions. I’ll do another review once I’m a month deep.
I like the variety of the videos. I would get extremely bored with the same video every day (even rotating between 4-5 seems like too few!). In P90X it’s a different video everyday for 6 days (the 7th day is a Rest day), then the pattern repeats for 3 weeks before being changed up.
The videos are challenging – definitely not for beginners, and are quite time-intensive. I was DYING after my first Back & Chest video, which despite its name, really works the arms with about a million push ups, pull ups, and chin-ups. Not gonna lie, that very evening I was already so sore that I had a hard time raising my arms in the shower to shave the underarms…..yes, that sore!! But it hurt so good!
The biggest drawback thus far is simply finding time to fit it all into my schedule! I’ve mentioned before that I’ve had to break some of the videos up into two, shorter segments (1 in morning, 1 in evening) so I can fit them in. Oh – and another downside – the yoga video totally sucks! I mean, it’s a good workout, but it is NOT yoga! I don’t know how to describe it exactly, but when I practice yoga I feel renewed afterwards – and that definitely does NOT happen with the P90X yoga video.
I’ve already gotten my workout in today, and this evening is going to be spent mostly doing schoolwork (and maybe sneaking in a viewing of The Bachelor: Girls Tell All – total guilty pleasure! I’ve never watched before but somehow someway, this season has gotten me SUCKED IN!!)
Does anyone else actually kinda get excited from the good burn of muscle soreness after a killer workout? (To clarify – I’m talking about normal soreness, not injury!)
What guilty pleasure TV – shows do you have?
