Day 8 - Core, encore!

Today's the first repeat day in my program.. Back to square one: Core Synergistics! I'm pretty sure that Core Synergistics is one of my least favourite, probably because I don't have good form for most of the exercises (like banana, and the sphinx push-ups). But they definitely work - I felt it most in my back and shoulders today. I find my abs aren't getting sore or tired, maybe this is a sign that I'm not working them hard enough? At the time, though, I can't hold them very long, but then I don't feel much from the workouts. Next week, I'll really push myself to hold the positions longer. Aiming for achy abs here.

I don't want to get all big and muscle-y, but abs are on my agenda, for sure. I want to have a great stomach. I saw a picture once of this really fit girl sitting, leaning over and doing a stretch, and she had no fat rolls. None. She had little folds of skin, but no underlying fat. That's what I want - maybe it's a little ambitious, but hey, maybe someday I'll have that!

I bought a new (pink!) sports bra today, and we found foam yoga blocks just like they use in the video. This really made me want to do yoga, but no yoga until Friday. I'm thinking that after the program is done, I'm going to look into some yoga classes. It's such a great workout, and contrary to popular belief, it's not relaxing. At all. On the P90X forums, the Yoga X workout is one of the most hated because it's so difficult. Personally, I loved it, and I can't wait to do it again.

Until tomorrow..

This will be me someday!


  1. I love yoga and do it often. Lululemon has free classes Sunday mornings and Weds. evenings. Just to let you know! Ive been trying to get luke to check it out with me.

  2. I'd love to go, but I have enough workouts at home already! I'm definitely going to go to a few classes once this program is finished. :)
