p90x, days 1, 2 & 3

i started p90x this week. i have to say, it's kicking my butt, big time! i like to think i'm in okay shape (because i run 3-4x a week -- hehe), but man oh man, these last three days have been so tough. my body is still sore from all the different exercises. of course i know why! i haven't done any strength training workout in months. and having really long days with not enough sleep doesn't help too.

so how am i doing? let's say so far, i'm 3 for 3, even with 2 ab ripper x workouts in on day 1 and 3, and running on day 1 and 2. tonight's my fourth day and i have to say i'm looking forward to it. it's going to be tough again, i just know it, but i'll survive. it can't be any worse than day 1. yeah, day 1's chest & back workouts were brutal. it was so hard because i took the fit test the day before (and that included doing pushups and such until exhaustion), and my arms and legs or whole body you could say was sore from just that fit test alone. then doing the first day's workout where it calls for lots of pushups? yeah, that was rough.

now, if only i can get a handle on my eating habits. the last three days, although i've been trying to be good, i have to be honest, i haven't really. i need to tone down all this eating. especially since the holidays are coming up, i must make sure i can get this "will power" food deal under control so by the time thanksgiving and christmas comes, i can tackle it with ease. basically, i really just need to watch what i eat and count my calories. i'd want to have plenty of calories left at the end of the day rather than be in the red.

i know i still need to post my before measurements. but if i don't get to it, for sure they'll be up come day 30; with both day 0 and day 30 measurements.

okay, stay tune!
