P90X - Week 10 - Friday Through Sunday

Another few days of the "I don't care if it's junk" diet. Friday's goal was to be able to swallow food. I woke up in the morning, completely stiff and sore. My incisions had a dull ache, but my throat was in horrible shape. It hurt to even breathe and prepare to swallow. Actually swallowing made my eyes tear up. My throat was swollen and tender from the breathing tube Thursday. So eating perfectly was not high on my list of priorities. Actually, it wasn't even on the list.

Saturday was much better. My throat was a little sore but I could pretty much eat normally. And by normally, I mean junk. It was impossible to get back on track, so I didn't even try. My incisions were about 90% better - just a little tenderness if I rubbed against them.

As of Sunday, I'm feeling almost 100%. I'm eating like crap and that pisses me off, but I think not exercising has a lot to do with it. I know I'll be 100% on track tomorrow, no doubt. It's really sucked not working out and I'm looking forward to hitting the weights again tomorrow. I am glad I did Ab Ripper X during Recovery Week though - my stomach is bruised from the doctor pushing on it, probably when he pushed the gas back out. My husband said the pattern looks exactly like a hand print. My belly button incision is in good shape, but the one by my c-section scar is all bruised and still a little puffy, so I left the tape on it. Because of that, I also did not do X Stretch today. I will do it at a later date, sometime in the next two weeks. I didn't think my abs would like me very much if I did Bow and Camel and all that stuff that works the core.

Hi Becky

I hope you feel better. No need to try to push through the sickness with P90X. Rest up and then "Bring It."

Are you a Beachbody Coach? I did not see on your site that you were. Go to and click on the "Coach" tab to learn more. Feel free to contact me about it.

I'm not a Beachbody coach. I think about doing it every now and then, but I don't know if I have the motivation to actually do it.
