P90X - Week 7 - Tuesday

I don't know why I always dread Plyo so much. I wake up, fret about it, and reluctantly start. By the time I'm done with the warm up and first circuit, it's my favorite dvd in the set. I do need to get up earlier so I can eat a better breakfast. Plyo day is the only day I don't get up at 5 AM to work out. All the jumping, I don't want to disturb anyone. I can't eat too much before doing the workout because I'll probably throw up, but a cup of cottage cheese an hour beforehand doesn't cut it. Today I tried to do the 360 degree spin Dom does during one of the 180 degree jump exercises. I managed a couple but I was just too dizzy. It was fun, though. And finally, after 7 weeks, I managed to do Hot Foot for the full minute (both times) without switching to jumping rope. (Hot Foot is hopping on one foot in a "t" for 30 seconds per leg - a lot harder than it sounds) During Plyo, I burned 422 calories (earning 4 Activity Points). I followed up with X Stretch, which catches me up with the ones I skipped, taking a rest day instead. No more skipping X Stretch on Sundays.

cottage cheese [3 pts]

toast w/ jelly [1 pt]

omelet w/ green pepper & salsa [5 pts]; I was out of onions today, and starving, so I threw in an extra serving of egg substitute.

green peppers & baby carrots [0 pts]

chicken breast w/ sweet potato [4 pts]

cookies [4 pts]; I was doing so well today, too :(

cauliflower soup [1 pt]

yogurt [2 pts]

Four cups of coffee [1 pt] and 80 ounces of water.

21 points today. 29 weekly and 8 activity points remaining.

Good for you on hot foot! I'm to the point I can do it on the left foot, but always have to switch to jump rope on the right due to an old knee injury.
You have inspired me to to try harder since today is Plyo day!
