P90X – Day 27 – Yoga X
Today was one of those days where nothing was going right for me business wise. I had a bunch of research to do on some Affiliate Marketing related stuff and things just weren’t working out for me. It’s like one of those days where you wake up in the morning and stub your toe and it just sets the rest of the day up.
Normally I’m pretty good at interrupting my patterns and snapping out of such a grumpy mood, but today it was persistent. By 3pm my brain was racing with all kinds of thoughts in all unrelated areas, remembering things I had forgotten to do and things I need to get done. I then stopped myself, walked away from my computer, unrolled my Yoga mat, popped in Yoga X, pushed play and did my Yoga X for 90 minutes.
By the time I was done, I was calm, much more relaxed and feeling great about myself. I was able to hold a lot of the poses today a lot longer than before, and on some of the Ab poses which really burn I was able to stay with them even though my abs were literally shaking/vibrating from the burn. If someone was looking from the side, it would like like I was having a mini-seizure – that’s how much some of these Ab exercises work your Abs. Once they’re done though, it feels so good. I bet my Abs will be sore tomorrow.
I also noticed that all of this week my lower back has been getting a major workout because it feels tight, and a lot stronger than before. I really like that because my lower back has always been a weaker spot for me.
Food wise, I had a protein shake in the morning which tasted really good. Then I ended up going out for dinner after my Yoga X workout and had Chinese food again. Chicken Mushroom Egg Foo Yung, Mixed Vegetables, Almond Chicken and Chicken Fried Rice. No it’s not a P90X meal, but the place where we get our Chinese food is not very greasy. For example the mixed veggies are basically just like steamed veggies. The Egg Foo Yung is basically like the P90X Chicken Scramble, except they use the whole egg and it has Bean Sprouts in it.
Tomorrow I probably have to go to the grocery store and pickup groceries for the new Phase II diet plan that starts next week. I’m looking forward to trying out the new recipes and getting some pictures of them up for you guys.
I still can’t believe that I’m already on DAY 27 of this program! It feels like I just started yesterday!
