Hi all – how has your weekend been? Mine has been pretty good. On Saturday I decided to sleep in bit and try out one of the P90X videos instead of running. I probably should have just gone running because I’m soo sore today from it that running is out of the question. I woke up with soreness I haven’t felt since after my very first long run.
Before I jumped into P90X I ate a yummy oatmeal breakfast with strawberries.
I want to preface this by saying I am NOT really doing P90X. We have the DVDs, but realistically, our apartment is not conducive to the actual training program. We don’t have a lot of room to move around and do all the activities to the fullest.
That being said, I wanted to finally see what this program was all about. So I popped in the Plyometrics DVD and wondered what I was in for.
The answer – a lot of cardio, sweating and heavy breathing. It was tough. There was a ton of jumping, lunging, squatting, etc. It was really intense. The video was a full hour, but I think we were probably really working hard for about 50 minutes of the DVD.
At the end of the DVD I was pooped. But I felt really good. My legs had been worked in ways they hadn’t been in a very long time. I think today I may try the ab DVD.
After I finished the DVD, I ate a protein bar (still a few left) and then cleaned a bit. A little while later I was hungry again, so I threw some veggies in a bowl with balsamic vinegar.
That held me over until Hubby and I headed out for date night. A Shake Shack just opened up on the UES and I’ve been wanting to try it out. There is always a line out the door, so we gave ourselves a little extra time. When we got there, there was indeed a long line, but it moved pretty quickly and soon enough I was ordering a cheeseburger with fries and a diet coke. And it was yummy! We sat in the outside area and enjoyed our not-so-healthy summer dinner.
After dinner, we headed to the movie theater to see Inception.
We happened to talk to an older couple a Shake Shack and mentioned we were going to see this and they told us they hated it and actually walked out of the theater mid-movie. Well that didn’t exactly excite us, so I was a little hesitant when things started. However, I really liked it. The couple said it was too confusing and hard to follow, but both Hubby and I were able to follow everything okay.
All in all, I enjoyed it and it had me thinking and attentive the whole time. I certainly recommend it. It’s not a mindless movie though.
So that was our Saturday. And I’m sad that it’s Sunday already. On the agenda today – laundry at the laundry mat, cleaning, possibly P90X abs, dinner and True Blood.
How has your weekend been? What’s your Sunday look like?
And yes, I am upset with myself that I didn’t run, but I’m planning to ease back in on Monday night on the treadmill. I think setting a lofty 9-11 mile run goal might have intimidated me. I’ve decided to take baby steps now.
