"The More You do the Better You Get!!"

My love for Tonyisms is returning with every workout. I can't quite understand why I was so intolerant of Tony at the beginning of this round of X2... it baffles me. I mean, I have always appreciated his humor and well, everything about the man really... but the first week and one half of this new program I found him to be annoying. Maybe it was because he was going very fast with fewer instructions? Maybe it was because I did not feel the love for the program at the beginning neither? Whatever it was it has passed. I still don't like the stupid bunny hop move but I will learn to tolerate that too, in time.

This morning was a little tough to get up. Not because I was too tired (because I was in bed by 9pm) but because I am having a hard time with my joints and muscles again. When I get up it takes some time before I can stand upright... I am leaned over like a lady of 90+... just not THIS lady (gotta love PINTEREST)

The truth is that I am due for my next treatment and I am hurting really bad right now. Tomorrow morning I have cleared my schedule and will be receiving my meds and should be back to my new medicine induced 'normal' state within 24 hours. My life has changed so much because of Remicade!!

OK, so back to the workout... I was pushing as hard as my body would allow. I was jumping, sweating and breathing so hard that I woke up my Mr. Wonderful and my 16 year old (yup, she is 16 today... Happy Birthday Bear). I worked through the pain and felt better afterwards but really could have used a nap. I am still a little groggy and I wonder if anyone would notice if I just went for a nap at work :) My reps are almost at par with Tony's group and one more week of this should have me considering whether to move on to phase 2... I will weigh it out when I get there. I hope you are all making time to press play today too... BRING IT!

Calorie: 501
Avg HR: 132
Max HR: 171

Make it a great day!

Happy Sweet 16 to your daughter!!!

I hope you feel better after your treatment tomorrow. Your determination to get up and do the workout is amazing.

Hahahaha... I remember when I was pregnant with my son. I'd close my office door and lay on the floor for an hour during the day. I don't think they'll mind if you do ... too much. :)

Watching the men do the bunny rabbit is the funniest!!!

Congratulations on pushing through the pain! P90x positively terrifies me! I'm thinking about giving it a go starting in March, though! (30 day shred starts Feb 1st in my house!) Good luck to you!
