KenpoX took place in our home today and it was a great workout. Isaac went down for a nap and Abbey decided she wanted to continue her P90Xperience with me; even though she was feeling a little sore from legs and back. We took on the 60 minute exercise and showed it who was boss. We looked like two BAMF’s (for those of you not fluent in Dane Cook a BAMF is a Bad Ass Mother F’er). I’m not going to lie…it’s a little more entertaining to work out with Abbey because it means that I have someone to talk to and more importantly laugh at Tony D-bag! If we had a camera on in our house people would think we were training to be extras in the new Karate Kid movie…yes, they are remaking it – Will Smith’s son is the student and Jackie Chan is Mr. Miagi. On a side note, I also heard they were remaking Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – two classics that will just not be the same…
I started the day with a Protein Shake since I knew Abbey and I were going to work out soon after eating. Just incase you were wondering and want to make your own protein shake here is my recipe:
1 cup of skim milk
1 cup of ice
1 cup of frozen fruit
5 tablespoons of protein powder (I use chocolate)
When I blend the shake I tend to let it get pretty frothy, but I like that way and it seems to fill me up for longer. (That’s what she said).
We worked out, showered (indvidually), then I helped myself to one of my new PowerBar Protein Bars. Chocolate peanut butter was the flavor and it was just OK. I’ll be going back to S’mores; that’s for sure! Lunch rolled around and I heated up my two leftover porkchops and added some frozen corn. For those of you that like corn…the birdseye steamers individual corn packets have a ton of flavor – I highly recommend them.
Around 2 we headed over to Abbey’s parent’s house to watch the UK game (scary) and eat dinner. They were having chili so I went with it because really it’s just beans, turkey meat and veggies. At the last minute they added cornbread to the mix (not in the chili, just on the table) and I wanted a piece, but I told myself I would take this seriously and that’s what I’m giong to do. I’m really surprised at my willpower so far in these two weeks!
When we got home and after we did the nighttime routine with Isaac Abbey and I watched the Grey’s/Private crossover special. Can it REALLY be considered a crossover if one person from Private is on Grey’s for 10 minutes and one person from Grey’s is on Private for 25 (if that)? I know WHY they market it that way, but really…who cares! Crossover Specials only worked when Erkel “jetpacked” into Step-by-Step! Now those were the days…TGIF! Has there ever been a better 2 hours of tv as there were on Friday nights?
I really enjoyed working out earlier in the day and not at 10pm. I felt like it freed up my night (obviously) and also gave me more energy throughout the day. Work kind of prohibits me from working out in the afternoon so I guess that will just be a weekend thing. I stayed up till a little past 11 (I know I’m a rebel) ate a couple pickles and a banana. I don’t have too much more to put into detail.
