Bring It! P90X

I just completed my 15th day of P90X. (And it only took me about 45 days to complete that much - these are long workouts and they're tough to make time for. I think I'm in a better groove now though). Anyway, the point is, on Day 1 I literally could not do one single sit-up (not crunches - all they way from floor to toes). I could barely get my shoulders off the floor! And this was 6 months post-partum and after I lost all my baby weight.

Today... I did 8 situps! 8! It may be small potatoes to some, but I feel like I've come a long way in 15 workouts! My back is feeling lots better than it used to too - I can now carry the babes around easier and I get a lot fewer back "kinks".

I actually started doing this to help my knee which I injured 3 years ago in a 5k and haven't been able to run more than a mile since. I'm already feeling benefit on the knee too. I can run 2 miles now before it starts to seize up, but I do have to stretch it before any running or I can easily cause it swell up for a couple days. It makes sense that weight training would help, but for some reason I just thought I could fix the knee in other ways. The knee has a long way to go still though.

Anyhoo, I'm just feeling excited that my body is feeling stronger. Just 75 more workouts to go...!
