So, today, April 28, 2008 was Day 1 for us on our P90X journey. We had a bit of a rough start this morning as we didn't plan enough time to complete our entire work outs (Back & Shoulders & Ab Ripper) so we had to stop half way and let Matt go to work. We finished the workout tonight before dinner. Wow! Is it normal to be so sore just minutes after you're done? I have a feeling we are gonna be hurtin-somethin-feirce tomorrow!
Our meal plan went great today. It was HORRIBLE yesterday (Sunday) as I spent HOURS looking at the nutriion guide and trying to figure out something I understood and could cook. In the end, this is what we had for today:
Cheese scramble (egg whites, skim milk & fat-free mozerella cheese)
Turkey bacon (3 for Matt, 2 for me)
Strawberries (4 for Matt, 1 for me)
Skim Milk (12 oz. for Matt, 8 oz. for me)
Snack: String cheese & protien shake
Chef Salad (turkey, ham, romaine lettuce, green pepper, tomato, FF mozerella cheese & 2 tbs. low-fat Ranch dressing.
Snack: Protien bar
Baked lemon pepper tilapia; homemade veggie soup (recipe from book), small bowl of veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)
I don't think either of us felt "full" after our dinner...but we were satisfied enough. I guess we have to be not full if our stomachs are ever gonna shrink and get used to less food. It feels weird not having hardly ANY carbs. I guess I eat a LOT more of them than I realized. I'm sure this is going to be great for me since the working out is the easy part for me. It's the eating right that's been holding me back...I think. Anyway, here's hoping tomorrow goes as good as today! (and that we can still move come morning!)
