P90x Fitness Review – Core Synergistics, Week 8, Day 2 – Total Days – 51


I was able

to get to my beloved P90x workout this morning and tackled Core Synergistics. This is my rest week, so it went really well. I confess to missing bashing my body with the weights, but I remember the last rest week really helped me recover.

I hate the Supermans but they work quite well. :)

And that’s Day 51,


ps – some nifty P90x goodies:

P90x Fitness Review – Xstretch, Week 7, Day 7 – Total Days – 49

I’ve completed

7 whole weeks! YAY!!!!!!!

P90x rocks! Today was ‘give my body a rest’ day, so I did the XStretch while really felt good.

Next week (okay, tomorrow) starts my rest week. It’s about time. :)

And that’s Day 49,


ps – Tony Horton has other goodies like:

P90x Fitness Review – Kenpo, Week 7, Day 6 – Total Days – 48

Work work work

I’m running out of time to post! I forgot to update my workout yesterday – ’twas Kenpo and as always, P90x delivered. It’s great exercise! And after tomorrow, it will be Week 8 – recovery! Yay!

And that’s Day 48,


ps – some cool P90x goodies:

P90x Review – Leg Backs, Week 7, Day 5 – Total Days – 46


Today was P90x Legs and Back and it went peachy! I think I really have this down now…I do P90x either after the kids go to school, or in the afternoon, and boom, it takes care of my strength training/etc. It’s a very good workout.

I still have to get better with pullups, mind you. But I figure that will come in time.

And that’s Day 46 (coming soon to recovery week, yay!),


ps – some P90x goodies!

P90x Review – Darth Yoga, ie YogaX, Week 7, Day 4 – Total Days – 45

Can I simply say how much I love

the YogaX DVD now?

Okay, true, I used to HATE it…but with time comes wisdom I suppose. :) I’m finding the positions and postures much easier now to do; it’s a great break from all the strength training stuff that is done on other days. Really good stuff!

And that’s Day 45,


ps – Other cool P90x goodies are:

P90x Review – Back Biceps, Week 7, Day 3 – Total Days – 45

Hi everyone,

Today’s P90x workout was back and biceps. Wow, I really love the pullups/chinups, but gosh, I wish I could do more than 4 unassisted ones!!!!!

Oh well, perhaps my body simply wants to teach me patience. Yes, that must be it. :)

I will admit, however, that the program is going swimmingly. And tomorrow is Darth Yoga again – bliss! :)

And that’s Day 45,


ps – some extreme home fitness goodies:

I LOVE Darth Yoga!


I’ll post my P90x update later on today, but for the moment let it suffice to say:

I ADORE Darth Yoga!

What is, Darth Yoga, I hear you ask?

It’s the P90x DVD called YogaX. I fondly started referring to it as Yoga Death because it was suuuuuch a killer workout; then other super moms started calling it Darth Yoga.

You see, if you’re not big into yoga yet, you’ll find the P90x YogaX to be, well, brutal. Excruciatingly so, I might add. It has you hold positions you probably never saw since you were 5 years old, stretch muscles that you never even knew you possessed, and generally causes extreme fatigue if you’re not used to it. Back when I first started P90x, I utterly despised this workout.

But! As the days and weeks went by (I’m on week 7 now), my body started to actually enjoy the benefits this particular workout gave, most specifically in the stretching and flexibility aspect. After all, sitting for 76 hours a day in front of your computer is guaranteed to get the softest muscle stiff and achy…and being able to stretch everything out and relax is true goodness for your body.

Thus, after my morning workout and programming, I boldly slipped in the DVD and pressed PLAY. 1.5 hours later I was done, and my body purred, thank you! It’s about time! :)

And now of course, it’s back to work. :)



ps – some great P90x goodies include:

P90x Fitness Review – Plyo, Week 7, Day 2 – Total Days – 44


Plyo treated me really well earlier in the day… (that’s the good news) but the not-as-exciting news is that my body was toast afterwards (I did major workouts the day before and wow, was I sore).

So! I bravely treated myself to Darth Yoga afterwards, and that was just what the doctor ordered – it helped me stretch and loosen my body very well indeed.

As always, the best part of Plyo was the kick-over-the-chair goodies; my daily 800 karate kicks workout have really helped me get those far more smooth.

And that’s Day 44,


ps – some nifty Tony Horton Goodies:

P90x Fitness Review – Chest Shoulders Triceps, Week 7, Day 1 – Total Days – 43


I brought it with P90x early this morning and as always, it was a super workout. I really like the pushups/pullups and especially the triceps exercises – for some reason, I just love building up my deltoids/triceps. :)

Later on in the morning, the husband and I went to the gym for our time together. I was able to do 30 minutes cardio, 30 minutes free weights, and some time in the Cybex room; all in all, it was a great way to start the day!

I’m back now and full of energy. That’s one thing I like about P90x and workouts in general – you might feel like they’re too difficult to commit to, but once they’re done, wow – it’s a great accomplishment.

And that’s Day 43,
