P90X - Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps
55 minutes (ish)
Someone please explain to me how I dealt with this...
... for 90 days and didn't smash my television in.
But serious folks... this workout kinda sucked. I'm not sure exactly why I picked Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps in the first place since it wasn't my favorite workout in the series... I probably would have been much happier with Chest and Back or Shoulders and Arms. But it is what it is. It was a hard workout, just like the whole P90X series, but the biggest challenge I faced was pure unadulterated boredom. I was honestly just bored about halfway through. The only real reason that I didn't stop was because I knew I was going to post it on here and wanted to avoid writing, "So... I started a workout... and then I bailed on it to eat cake."
Today was supposed to be a run day, but I woke up to cold weather and sore legs so I decided to just rest. And it will actually be the first of many rest days because I am getting all four wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow.
I am clearly thrilled about the entire situation.
Really, I probably shouldn't be awake and blogging right now. I should be sleeping because I will be up in about 6 hours to have my last 8 ounces of clear liquids for a while. I already had my last solid meal for a while tonight. It included Oreos and cupcakes. You know, the important food groups.
To be entirely honest, I'm pretty darn scared about the whole thing. It includes a lot of unwanted firsts for me: my first IV, my first time getting anesthesia, my first surgery... I could do without these, really. And several people I know have had bad experiences with some part of the process so I've heard a few too many horror stories to be comfortable. But I'm trying to be hopeful. And will attempt to not cry on the surgeon's shoulder. No guarantees.
Depending on how loopy I am on painkillers, I might post some gibberish tomorrow. But no workouts for me for a week or so. I know it's tragic, forced to sit still, watch television, and eat milkshakes... maybe I'm okay with this whole oral surgery thing after all.
