This morning I had a little trouble waking up. Which is different because I am one of those annoying morning people (I know ...feel free to stop reading now!). My wife can't stand me in the morning because she is the exact opposite of the morning person. I have learned to not even talk to her until she has had coffee! But not me -- I am bouncing off walls as soon as I wake up. But ever since I started Cell Mass and Nitrix I have struggled to get going. If that is the only side effect from these supplements that is okay because they are pretty awesome otherwise.
So, after shaking off the sleep I made a Whey Protein shake and as it was blending I jumped on the scale: 160.4 lbs. Still dropping. Jumped in the car for a long day of appointments. In my cooler I packed: Two Protein Bars, one Atkins Protein drink, sliced chicken with one whole wheat bread slice for lunch, some apple slices, and a half gallon of water. Just enough to get me through the day!
Once I made it home I took my pre-workout tablets with some Cell Mass and went upstairs to do Yoga. I turned off my blackberry, turned off the overhead light, gave the dogs kongs with peanut butter, and tried to focus on just doing Yoga for 92 minutes. No distractions, only Yoga. Well, it worked out pretty good. I put my HRM on and ended up burning 325 calories. The truth is I only made it about 89 minutes because I skipped the chant/oman/moan/whatever crap. As hard as I try that just isn't me!
So, overall a very solid day. Got through Yoga. Ate clean, only about 10% carbs. I just finished up with dinner which was grilled chicken breasts and steamed veggies followed by an apple. I am in one of those phases were I am grilling everything. I love my grill. When I first started P90X and saw in the nutrition guide that "Grilled" was an acceptable way to cook I knew this program was for me!
This reminds me, I have been getting a lot of questions about the P90X Nutrition Plan so Sunday's Mailbag is going to be about just that. If you are wondering what to eat tune back in Sunday night!
Tomorrow is Legs & Back!
