I'm back into working out normally again, woo hoo!!!! Using P90X for my lifting, Zumba for cardio and plan on running again starting in September. I've been having some pain on my right side in the IT band area, still have pain on left side with my IT band. Needless to say, it is frustrating, but fixable.
I have a wonderful friend from high school that is a physical therapist so I got some great tips from her. I must stop my laziness with stretching and make sure I stretch every single night, use the foam roller on both sides, plus do ice massages. I must do all this so I can continue to comfortably work out, she did promise me that the issue with completely go away eventually if I do this routine nightly.
Today was my first real day back to doing P90X. I forgot that we have a dvd player here at work so I decided to try doing it on my lunch hour. Well the tv is located in our Conference Room, all I did the entire time was of course work out, but I constantly kept hearing people coming in our main door and was freaking out that someone would come in the Conference Room (even though it was locked) and see me all crazy and sweating like mad.
On top of that I've started taking some pills, I really haven't taken anything to help me working out wise for YEARS. Now back in the day when I worked at 24 Hour Fitness I was taking Hydroxycut, the Hydroxycut that was full of Ephedra. The pill taking schedule then had me taking 5-6 pills a day, I was never hungry, worked out daily and got so skinny I looked like a crack head. You know, I'm a curvy, muscly woman, it was weird to see myself with hardly any curves and little muscle, not attractive.
So anyway I had told Kyle I wanted a little something to help me get started, give me some energy, just get me going. He is having me take Methyldrene 25, it contains Ephedra. I couldn't believe it, I mean I thought Ephedra was banned, but it is a small amount and Kyle is great with me taking them.
I take one in the morning and then one late morning, well today was the first day I worked out on my lunch hour after taking two pills in the am. BAD idea, holy crap I felt like I was going to faint, plus the panicking that someone would come in and see me doing my workout, it was just awful. I got to our little bathroom with the shower afterwards and just layed on the tile floor trying to stay cool and not pass out.
Needless to say I will not be doing the P90X on my lunch hour, it's too stressful to workout in the Conference Room and apparently, at this point anyway, my body can't handle two pills in the am if I am going to work out on my lunch hour.
BUT I did get Core Synergistics done today, woo hoo!!!! Now someone please help this non morning person get her butt up at 5am so I can do P90X in the mornings and just do my cardio on my lunch hour, that would be awesome.
All this getting back into working out so much is all for Halloween, that's right. I'm going as Queen of the Damned, and I'll be damned if I'm baring my upper body besides my boobs for all to see and not have my core in amazing shape!!!
