I spoke too soon when I said I was disappointed with day 1 of P90X. First I loss all strength in my arms and then I turned into a complete slug.
This afternoon I knew I had the plyometrics workout to soldier through so I fueled up with my garbage scramble for a late lunch.
Into the mix went:
- Amy’s All-American Veggie Burger
- 1 egg & 1 egg white
- Shredded Cheese
This is one of my favorite meals that I’ve created. It looks like barf but the flavors pop in your mouth. Fireworks in October. It reminds me of when I was living in Los Angeles and Brian and I attended a dinner party at his friend’s house.
The girls cooked one of the best meals I’ve ever had, and while most of the foods were from a farm, they surprised us by saying that the other ingredients were garbage picked. Yes I’m speaking in English. They’re dumpster divers. I should have known they were from the moment I walked into their apartment. I still went up for seconds. You won’t catch me diving into dumpsters, but don’t knock it!
I left work an hour early today, as I had signed up for spinning last week, but after yesterdays beast of a workout, I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle position 3 for an hour.
Day 2 of P90X consisted of Pylometrics and Ab Ripper X. I was supposed to do Ab Ripper X yesterday but I was so caught up in things that I didn’t have time to. I have to say, while I HATED Back & Chest, I LOVED pylometrics. Who loves pylo? No one. I must have been hit in the head a few times as a child.
Even though it’s called the hardest workout in the series, I genuinely thought it flew by and Tony Horton made me giggle so much that I almost shit my pants from all of his Tonyisms. “Halfway done, party’s almost over, what a bummer.” “Hamburger bad, fries bad, coca-cola bad, there I said it.”
After Pylo and Ab Ripper X, I whipped up a chocolate peanut butter protein shake with my new PB2 that came in the mail today!
I completely forgot I bought this last week so it was a nice surprise to come home to it. Back in Cali, Brian, my roommate introduced me to this stuff and I quickly became an addict. I’ve been debating on buying it for several weeks now, but the expensive prices steered me away for a bit.
Peanut butter is healthy in moderation, but the way I go through a tub isn’t so healthy, so it only made sense for me to spend the extra money for a healthier version. PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter is “made with premium quality peanuts that are slow-roasted to our specifications and pressed to remove the fat. All natural with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. Same consistency as full-fat peanut butter with all of the roasted peanut flavor, but with more than 85% less fat calories.”

While enjoying my recovery shake, I tortured myself in an ice bath to get the lactic acid out of my legs. So cold!
Now it’s off to paint my nails and catch up on my DVR. 666 Park Avenue and CSI:NY is on the line-up. Hope everyone had a great Monday!
