I completed the X in P90x before 6am!!

Dang, aren't I good! Actually I feel less than good right now... I feel whipped. I find that the Plyo workout first thing in the morning is the only one that I truly struggle with... but the 652 calories that I burned before breakfast always FEELs great!! I had to fast forward the bonus round becausewe were running out of time and I still burned 652 calories of GOO and GRIZZLE!! I feel awesome (as long as I am sitting down and not moving :P).


I had my second treatment of Remicade yesterday and sat like this for 3 hours. It is a comfortable setting and I was much more relaxed this time. I am pleased to announce that I did not crash when I got home, as a matter of fact I made a great, healthy supper and supper for tonight. I cleaned and read to my littles and then I considered doing Plyo... but I changed my mind and did C25K, Week 1, day 2 and burned 312 calories. I tried to keep my run at a 6.0MPH and the walk at 3.9MPH so that I build my stamina to be able to do that 10 minute mile. I am on my way and will get there with this program.







So, I had an awesome day and my diet was right on key. I should say that I did GAIN last week... the doctor's scale doesn't lie but I do NOT CARE! I can finally say that my blood pressure is now back to 128/83!!!!!!! It was really high about a year and a half ago... so high that I was put on meds. I threw the meds in the garbage and started working out... and now look at me.

I ROCK!!!!!

Make it a great day folks!

Yes! Great job in keeping positive and confident, because you are doing great!! I know too many people who don't care about their health, it is SO refreshing to see someone taking the bull by the horns. You are the master of your body, it must obey you, that is the secret to health.

You sure do rock. Great for you getting your early morning workout on!! I know you will have great results this time around. And that can't be measured by the scale. LIke you said, your blood pressure tells the true tale.
