P90x ; week2, day 4

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

Sorry that it has been a few days since my last blog entry. I have been too busy to sit down and write it out. I am still hanging in there with P90x. This morning was yoga x. I did better than last time, though I still had to stop a few times. I finally got a heart rate monitor this past weekend. So, I decided to wear it during yoga and see how many calories it said that I burned. 498!!!! I love that! I didn't wear it during cardio X on Sunday. That was simply because I had not learned how to operate it yet! You would think that a little piece of equipment like that would be a no brainer! But, it stumped me for a few days. I finally figured out how to put in height, weight and all that so it would be as accurate as possible. I was also afraid that the chest strap wouldn't fit around me. I had read several reviews of HR monitors with chest straps that said the standard strap was too small if you weighed over 200 pounds. I was (pleasantly) surprised that I had to tighen it up after I got it on. I think that it is all part of the body dysmorphic thing, where, even though I have lost weight, I still see myself as the "fat girl". But, I like it when I come face to face with the truth that I am getting healthier and I am getting smaller in the process.

So, anyway. Yoga today, chest and back tomorrow! I love the weight days, can't wait!

Keep pushing play!

    Yoga X is demanding!?! I don't have P90x, but I like reading the blogs from all the sparkpeople using the program. You guys are better than an infomercial.

    Keep up the great work.
