So tonight I started p90x. I am doing a modified version of the nutrition plan as it’s a tad extreme for me and with Brooke here part of the week I need the flexibiltity to make just about what ever I want.
This morning I started out with a cheese omelet made with egg whites, low fat cheese, tomatoes and green onions. I snacked on low fat string cheese before lunch and for lunch I had a chef salad with butter lettuce, tomatoes , low fat ham and turkey. I ended the afternoon with a small banana.
I came home and walked Jack and got ready for my workout. I out in the chest and back DVD and prepared for my one hour workout. This has to be one of the most intense workouts I’ve ever done, and that even goes back to when I was a lifeguard.
I’m definitely more out of shape than I have been, especially when it comes to upper body strength but I was able to get through all the exercises, some far more easily than others. I only had to pause the DVD once tocatch my breath, but the workout totally kicked my ass and for a good 45 minutes after finishing up I had a rough time lifting my arms above my shoulders.
For dinner I cooked up a 1.25 lb steak, took a quarte of it and some tofu and laid it over some baby greens and tomatoes with a worscherster dressing.
It’s now 11pm and I’m totally beat. When Brooke isn’t here, like tonight, I’m usually up until 1am or so, but I have a feeling this workout is going to leave me exhausted for quite a while.
Day 1 down. 89 to go.
