This is me right before a HOT date I had recently with my main squeeze (and look at my heels *eeek* I love them). By this point (3 weeks of exercise) I had lost an entire dress size by doing the P90 workouts and was sporting my smaller sized jeans.
During this day I somehow did something that caused my back to go out. Back track just a little, my back has been having some problems on and off for about a year, but this time (and I think it was a yoga stretch, some vacuuming and mopping that did it) it was the straw that broke the camels back (Hi, my name is Sharon and I am married to a pun-a-holic).
It was a long weekend of pain, in my lower back, where I ended up being laid out with pain meds and a patch that went over the sore area. It felt like fire and ice. It was hard to get used to.
I was so sad after going to the Chiropractor that I had to give up my week of P90 (which turned out to be two weeks). Have you ever had something happen that messed up goals that you were trying to attain?
It. Is. Frustrating! Its like taking one step forward and two steps back.
Now that I am on the mends I can do my videos again which is great, but it is always harder to get back on track once you have gotten off the beaten path.
For those who don't know what P90 is, can go here. Basically it is a series of workout videos designed so that you go at your own pace and level. Turning up the notch when you are ready. It is also designed so that you never plateau in your weight loss efforts. There are a few more from the same company like P90X that is a step up (I am pretty sure there are more too).
Everywhere I turned to about info on these DVD's someone was telling me that you about die in the first five minutes. Well I did the Fat Burner bonus DVD and LOVED it! Even my kids jumped in and gave it a try. Chad thought the guy, Tony, was goofy and weird. While Heath was just plain NOT interested, but the girls and I thought Tony was funny. The girls loved it so much that they would be all giggles during a few intense moves.I was quite entertained.
Then I did the actual Fat Burning and Sculpting vids. I WANTED TO DIIIE! Man, are they hard, but if you take your time and pace yourself you won't want to die like I did.
So, I am going to be posting here to record my "Last 15 pounds" Journey and give a final review of these videos.
Just as a side note, I will not be doing the supplements. I am just changing some eating habits and exercising.
I am also a little camera shy due to the baby love that I received 5 times over. It has settled around the middle, sides, thighs and bummage areas. So, I will post pics when I am braver of the befores and afters (in modest attire). Til then you only get the measurements...UGH! Even that is painful!
