This is the hardest week I think you will ever experience while doing P90X. If you can get through this week you will be ok.a little background...Before doing P90X, I only did remote control exercises for about a year. Last summer I did some working out at the gym 3 days a week and I saw great success in that, but due to my injury and later surgery, I gained all the weight back. I became immobile from Oct 2009 until March 2010. Needless to say, I did not look or feel much like an "ArmyDiva" I felt more like an ArmyStriker vehicle. Just all around big!!!! So I first had to DECIDE. P90X was my decision so now I have to get moving and PRESS PLAY.
10 minutes into "Chest and Back" I truly wanted to press PAUSE. No seriously, I was pissed!!!! "You mean to tell me that 13 years in the military and I am struggling to do 20 pushups?" "You have got to be freaking kidding me" Then I remembered the fat guy from the informercial who said in the beginning he could not do 20% of the exercises. I figured if his fat ass could get through it and push on, then certainly THE #1 ARMY DIVA could too. besides that I never really pressed pause because I couldn't reach the remote.
The rest of the week I continued to press play several more times. I struggled, grunted, pouted, and sweated my butt off. But by Sunday, I was glad that I had made this decision, and I was looking forward to pressing play again.
See how it all started on my first P90X video on youtube (Number1Armydiva Channel).
