Yosemitebear Mountain Giant Double Rainbow 1-8-10

So far, so good!!

Ok, so I had my 2nd "weigh in" today! I am down to 176! That's 4 lbs down this week, and 9 all together. I must also add that 176 is one lb less than my pre-pregnancy weight!! I think I may have done better if I didn't wait until Thursday to start P90x.

Speaking of P90x, I have done it for the past 3 days!! My body feels like I was attacked by a gang with baseball bats! LOL I don't think I have ever been so sore in my life! Matt is doing it with me BTW! (not sure if I mentioned that before) Yesterday, I almost puked during the workout! It was so intense.
Completely OT, I must post a video for a laugh. I just reminded myself of the good ol' "Double Rainbow" video! I posted it separately.

Today, I started Phase 2 of South Beach....Hooray for fruit and carbs (good ones of course)!!! It took me all day to get to the store, so I really didn't get to enjoy it until tonight! I had a clementine as soon as I walked in the door, whole wheat pasta for dinner and I just had a granny smith apple with PB!!

Wowsa!!! Day one...check!!!

OK, I started the P90x today! Pardon my french but HOLY SHIT! That stuff is intense! Today's video was Chest and Back. It was primarily pull ups and push ups. Both of which, I currently suck at. I have worksheets to keep track of how many I did and how much weight I used. AFTER the 52 minute video, was the AB ripper X video. Crazy 15 minutes where you do a total of 350 different core and ab exercises.

If I can feel it today, can't imagine how I'm going to feel tomorrow!

Hangs head in shame!!

OK, I have not started the p90x yet, but I have been exercising a little. My big push was that Matt and I just took our measurements and posed for the P90x suggested before pics. No, I will not be posting them!! Blahhhck! Maybe I will post comparison pics once I have 30 days done in the program.

I HAVE been doing well with South Beach though. I lost 5lbs the first week. I weighed myself a day or so ago, just because, and I had lost 3 more!! That puts me at 177, which just so happens to be my pre-pregnancy weight with EJ!!

Please send some good luck our way!

OK, well I think I may have to do some venting on here, rather than just discussing my weight loss. LOL I finally got my P90x DVDs all squared away...ready to start tomorrow!

Well, we were watching a movie tonight and my TV screen went black, but we could still hear the sound through our surround sound. There was a quiet humming sound....then SMOKE! Yup, our 4 year old LCD TV is toast! :(

I will be starting my P90x tomorrow am on an tiny, old, clunker TV. Boo!!

FAIL! But I did make the best of it!

So, day one of P90x was a fail!! My blog confession, I burned the discs from my sister. I apparently burned 2 copies of the "How to Bring it" DVD, instead of burning disc 1. THEN I decided to just start with disc 2. NOPE! It decided to freeze 5 minutes in and not work. Yup, big ol' scratches on it. Looks like I have a couple more to make again. I guess that was my karma

I didn't want to say that I got up at 6:00 am, before my children for nothing though! I decided to bust out my "Jillian's 30 Day Shred" dvd and do that instead. At least it's something! I will probably end up doing that tomorrow too cause we are completely covered in all the white stuff today! It's supposed to snow all day...lucky Maura got a snow day out of the deal! Looks like at least a foot so far!! I'll have to post a pic later, the weathermen were right for the first time this year!

BTW...I did go to bed at 11:00, or by 11:15 truthfully. Next step, falling asleep early! LOL I was still awake until 12:30!! Ughh!!

Great start...blah! I'm still still burning the discs, of course my computer is not cooperating. Looks like I have to wait one more day to start the P90x. South Beach is still going strong though. I think my first obstacle to overcome is my being a night owl. Since I became a SAHM in October, I have been staying up too late! I guess my body was just so used to being so active at work every day. I'm just not tired until about 1:00 am! That's nuts! I need to start going to bed at a normal time, that way I can wake myself up BEFORE my kids so I can exercise. I think that's the best way to make this work.

So, today's goal: Go to bed by 11:00 the latest!! Tomorrow morning, it's on!!!!

My plan of attack!!

I started the South Beach Diet on 1/8/10. So far, so good. As crazy as this sounds, I already feel a difference in the 3 days I've been doing it. P90x will start tomorrow! I have to admit, I'm real nervous about that. I am completely out of shape and my core is like an overcooked noodle!
