First of all, I apologize for not updating for several days. Over the last week or so I’ve been stuck in the middle of a move and also busy getting my house ready to put on the market. If you’ve ever moved before, I don’t need to explain why I haven’t had the time (or energy) to get my workouts in!
The good news is, I stayed on track with the P90X nutrition program and haven’t seen any negative results from taking those days off. I actually think that I’ve dropped a few more pounds as I’ve still been really active (moving boxes, furniture, cleaning, etc.).
So, having said that — I picked up where I left off today and completed the day 33 workout which was legs, back, and Ab Ripper X. I wish I could say that everything went smoothly, but it was pretty rough. Legs is my least favorite workout in the P90X program and it did not disappoint.
I made it through most of the legs and back workout and then started to feel a little “off”. I made it through the first 3 minutes or so of the abs workout and then I ended up getting sick. I canned the rest of the abs workout, drank the P90X recovery drink and took my creatine, and then just relaxed. I feel great now…
I did notice a big improvement in my pull-ups today, which is definitely a result of the creatine supplement I’m taking. I continued to take 5g a day all week, so it’s definitely in my system now.
I’m really glad to be back in the swing of things and will be updating the blog each day again. For those of you who have commented that you’re getting started with P90X, how’s it going so far? I’m looking forward to hearing about everyone’s progress…
