P90X/Rev Abs Hybrid: Day 25 (Rev It Up)

I had something weird going on with my digestion today. For some reason when I got home at 5pm, I still felt full from the lunch I had…at 12:30!!! So I decided to hold off on eating dinner for a while, choosing instead to sit on the living room floor and play with William.

After a while I realized I couldn’t eat TOO late, or I would never get around to my workout. So I ate around 7:00pm, give or take. Then I didn’t put the DVD in until 8:45pm.

And you know something? I STILL felt full and not 100% ready for exercise yet. At first I chalked it up to psychosomatic symptoms and kept on pushing through. However, by the time I got to the jumping jacks that open up the Punch Combo in round 3, I knew I couldn’t do it anymore. Every time I jumped, I could taste BILE in my mouth! (It didn’t help that tonight is super-humid, and I hate working out when I feel sticky.) So I sat out the last seven minutes of the workout.

Despite all that, I enjoyed myself. I can’t believe I am one day away from finishing round one of this hybrid!

Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
