I started P90X yesterday.
Which means I'm on day two. Of 90. In other words, I have 88 days to go.
It's actually my second time doing the program. Only because I had such success the first time, am I doing it again. Daddy did it with me last year, and while it was exhausting at times, the payoff was huge. I dropped 10% of my body weight, and got to my pre-baby target weight. There is a part of me that wants to share my before and after pictures right now, but I'm smart enough to know that this is the internet and that would just be a really stupid idea.
I haven't worked out consistently in the year since I completed the program, but if you can believe it, the weight has not come back on. Weird, I know. But I can't complain. :)
Needless to say, baking rich savory dishes and sweet treats just isn't high on my list of things to do this summer. It's all about the body-builders diet and ridiculously high amounts of lean protein that I will be lucky to hold down. That said, I made a *recovery shake* after today's work-out that was incredible just because of one simple ingredient:
I blended my usual 12oz. of non-fat milk with a frozen banana, a tablespoon of peanut butter and instead of a scoop of protein powder (don't tell Tony), I added a package of Starbucks VIA (aka: instant coffee granules). The end result was completely addicting.
What a perfect discovery to make at four o'clock in the afternoon.
