Day 18

I meant to blog about this earlier in the week,but as of Day 14, I've lost 4 lbs and 3" of my waist (2.5") and hips (.5")! Bad Pants has lost 8 lbs and a whole pants size! Men! Go figure!

In addition to working out, today I washed the dogs, which is a workout on it's own! On Tuesday, I also cleaned our master bedroom, unpacked 15 boxes and got us more organized. Now that we've decided to stay, I'm making up for the lack of any cleaning/unpacking/doing we've been neglecting. Plus, I'm tired of living out of boxes! (We'll be getting dressers this weekend).

I'm finding that my workouts are getting easier and yet more intense. Often, I'm pushing myself to the point of wanting to throw up. I can do 3 sets of 10 push ups now, instead of the original 3 sets of 5, which were a struggle. I've increased my weights from 3 lbs to 5 lbs and will be increasing again next week. At this rate, I'm hoping that I'll be ready to move onto the next level of Power 90 soon!

I'm going to sit on my laurels, eat my Clif bar and enjoy McLeod's Daughters for a bit. I think I've earned it, don't you?

Congrats! I'm so far behind on blog reading.

That P90 stuff is tough, I'm still in awe that you're doing it. I'll stick with the Little Bastard - he's not nearly as scary.

Ha! And we're not even doing P90X yet! That's the stuff that scares me! I can't do a pull up! I never have been able to!

YES you've earned it! Plus it makes a good recovery snack to help keep your metabolism peaked from the workout. That or a glass of milk will also help keep your from feeling sore the next day..
