Today I’m jumping in with plyocide. Based on past memories, I know that when I’m getting into the swing of things it’s best to treat plyocide with some respect.
Exactly what I did today. I got into the motions and kept my pace as best I could. I didn’t over exert myself. Though I did find a couple of spots where I did need to pause the video and catch my breath.
I woke up a bit tired. Nothing new, however I pushed on with the workout. I got through it without issue. I did find out that Plyocide can mean Plyopuke. Which is what happened about 30 minutes after the workout.
I was rocking it all the way through. Keepin up. No pauses. Even added an extra rep here and there. Felt strong despite how much I was sweating. Great workout.
It wasn’t until after I had showered and got dressed to eat breakfast that I suddenly felt uneasy. Like intuition or something. I made my way to praying to the porcelain god. Ick. Once I did that I felt right as rain again.
That means I made a great breakfast and had a shakeology. Booyah. From there it was a mellow day of music writing and mixing. So remember that plyocide can mean Plyopuke. It’s still a great workout regardless.
Rolling into day two of my phase two redux. Today Plyocide comes back. I don’t remember it being this hard at the end of the last time I did phase two a little over a month ago.
I had to pause a few times between sets in order to catch my breath. I was lacking some energy by the time I got 2/3 through the workout. I stuck with it and pushed through.
The best thing is, I didn’t hurl. I also didn’t bonk, though there were moments when I thought I would.
It’s a hell of a workout and despite my shirt making reference to insanity (actually it’s referencing my CD), I’m not sure I could, or would even want to, do the Insanity workout. Instead I’ll stick with things using weight and my extra outdoor activities. Seems more appropriate for me.
Time to whip up some Shakeology, eat a killer breakfast and get on with my musical day. Make sure you’re working out. If not with beachbody at least doing something. I would hope seeing plyocide comes back for as a reason for yourself to get into better shape.
There is one thing I like about this particular workout, that it doesn’t require writing anything down. Even better that today was a first in this journey where I didn’t pause the video. Look in the sky, it’s a hop skip double jump it’s plyocide.
I powered through it today.
Energy to spare. A few moments of hard breathing in-between moves but never stopped the video. Kept up. Rocked it. The End.
I don’t have much more to say other than I finished and still felt good. That’s a huge sign for me. I’d take that as a personal best.
A spark of difference this morning. When I woke up, I wasn’t nearly as tired. This has me thinking if there was something specific in my diet or world that has changed ever so slightly. I’m curious if the effect of a large fire spewing a ton of CO2 or ash into the air would have an effect on my sleep. Especially if I’m downwind of it. Hmmmm… This morning was my Plyocide.
While I wasn’t feeling 100% awake, I got into the workout and felt much better about it than I have in the past couple of weeks. If it’s not the fire issue, it might be a change in the diet. I haven’t changed much of my diet recently so it’s hard to say. Could very well be a heat factor too. It’s been warm, but not overtly hot like it was the past two weeks.
Either way, the workout of Plyocide today went extremely well. I wasn’t pushing myself to max anything out, but I kept up very well. That’s a bonus in my book.
Normally this would be my last week of phase two. However, since I took a half week with it last week and because I seem to notice the most change in my abdominal area during phase two, I believe I will do an additional week of it. I may do two more weeks of it – if only to hit my goal of a perfect flat 6 pack belly. So close. So. Close.
Time for a kickin’ breakfast sided with a Shakeology. I’ve got a hunger thanks to my Plyocide workout today. Follow it up with some music making. In the meantime, I’m going to throw down a challenge to you. Want to feel better than you ever have before? Want to get in great shape? Eat healthier? Then join my fitness challenge! Do it now and get ready for your hot new self.
Today will be a rather short post. The title essentially says it all. My plyocide has plyodied. I had a tough one today.
My brain is wondering if my body is telling me – dude, I need a week off to recover. I’ll have to see how I’m feeling after the next workout in a couple of days. Mostly because tomorrow is a recovery day.
The gut feeling is my sleep pattern is off and that is what is truly affecting the workouts. I’ll know in a couple of days I suppose. Till then: Keep Pushin!
Oh my. I definitely pushed it hard yesterday. This morning, after being up until 4:30 a.m. I woke up feeling some spots on my body that I don’t recall ever feeling before. Yet I was going to push on any way. That led me to a Plyocide mess.
What do I mean about that? Well…
Essentially I started the workout in an exhausted state. Not enough sleep. Plyocide is definitely not a workout you can do in a tired state. At least not effectively. I started up and got through the first portion. At the end of the first part I felt like pushing it any further would have been a dangerous thing to do.
What did I do?
I stopped. Heart pounding. Sweat dripping. Exhausted. Yikes.
We all have days where things aren’t as effective. Today was such a day for me. Tomorrow will be great to get on the foam roller!
Earlier this past year I played some golf with a buddy at an executive style course. During the round a 3rd person we were on the course with pulled out a gag ball. That gag ball was a schwetty ball from SNL (Saturday Night Live). Apparently there was a skit years ago involving schwetty balls. Not sure what made me think of that other than today was a schwetty schwetty plyocide.
It’s getting warm outside. Thus working out is a little more intense. More sweat is coming out. Due to the increase of warm in the weather I had to take a few extra pauses during the workout. Pushing it as hard as I’m pushing it now is a little more intense in heat. Thus not wanting to pass out or puke, I take the road of a few extra moments between the more hard core moves.
This 3rd week is going pretty smoothly. I’m keeping up. I’m pushing hard. I’m making progress. I’m feeling it, but it’s no longer killing me. Bonus.
Time for a little Shakeology to quench my depleted nutrition needs, a hearty breakfast and get on with the musical day. Are you in need of dropping a few pounds? Getting into better shape? How about joining a fitness challenge and putting yourself to a schwetty schwetty plyocide test? Join me!
Mmmm… Jumping around and around and around. Another day where I didn’t get my workout in early. This time due to waking up late for a meeting. The trials and tribulations of a musician, right? Late night, not good sleep = sleeping in to make sure I get rested. Oops. Good thing it wasn’t a money meeting. No, it was an organizational meeting for a music festival (that’s all I’m gonna say about it). Doesn’t matter, Plyocide has been Plyo-flied.
I flew threw it today. I sweated more too. I’m still pushing harder. Less pausing of the disc to catch my breath in between the moves is a good thing. The one move I’m still not real keen on is the Frog Burpee Jump. I did get them all in, but I’m not fond of that one. I used to dislike the Mary Katherines with a med ball, but I’m fine with that now.
Drip drip drip. That was me at the end of it all. A few minutes to shower and rest and its back on with the day. More music to make. Then time to blow a little steam off. The best part is, I’m still feeling the energy now that Plyocide has been Plyo-flied.
Ah, how I missed the idea of jumping around for a workout. Ok, maybe I’m lying a little bit. Today is the return to one of the hard workouts for me. Bring on the sweat cause I’m living the plyocide of plyolife.
Happiness is that I did not bonk in this workout. Doesn’t mean plyocide has gotten easier. No. Actually I pushed myself harder to keep up on all the moves. About halfway through I needed to start pausing in-between moves due to the fact that I started getting winded. I attribute that to pushing myself on each move to go above and beyond.
I want to see what kind of things will change in this 2nd journey through the P90X2 system if I go a little more extreme on the moves. Keeping up is no longer the goal, the goal is to go beyond.
This is my 4th time through a beachbody workout regimen. No longer about being in shape. It’s becoming a complete change in how I’m living. The original goal of getting in shape and working for looking good naked – along with a flat belly is within reach. I imagine that I’ll have the flat belly in less than 90 days from now. I can’t wait. It’s a wonderful feeling. That’s the drive.
Once I can push Plyocide to the extreme and not pause the DVD, I’ll be a really happy camper. Until that happens, I’m happy to be living the plyocide of plyolife.
