I had an interesting week. I got off to an ok start. I did the first two workouts with gusto but was so sore (those dive-bombers killed me!) I skipped my Wednesday workout but made it up on Thursday by doing it instead of Yoga X. I did Friday's workout but was interrupted constantly by a little 11 week old who decided to pick this week to take really short naps and wake constantly at night. By Saturday I was exhausted and decided I WANT A DO OVER.
One thing about me is I am a bit of a perfectionist. I don't like difficult adjustments. My first week of P90X didn't go as smoothly as I hoped and I feel a little off my game. I want to start off better than that. I decided that I am going to start week one again on Monday. This may sound crazy to you, but for me I will never feel right if I don't do it over and do it right. Don't get me wrong, I don't expect to go through the next 90 days without challenges, I do have realistic expectations. But I want a first week I can be proud of and this past week was full of interruptions, frustrations, and three-quarter workouts...and I just can't seem to let it go.
So, tomorrow I will do Stretch X as planned but Monday I will repeat day 1 instead of start day 8. And my P90X adventure will end Jan 9th instead of Jan 2nd.
Also, I wanted to tell you that I decided to buy a Bodymedia GoWear Fit. It is sort of like a Bodybugg but a little better in my opinion. I will let you know how much I like it.
I also promised a recipe! This is my favorite sauce for rice, fish, chicken, and veggies. It is delicious, keeps forever in the refidgerator, and has almost no fat. You'll love it. I put it on a bowl of brown rice and vegetables just this afternoon.
Soy Ginger Sauce
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 1/2 tsp sugar or agave nectar
2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
2 tsp chopped scallions or 1 tsp chopped garlic
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
Combine all ingredients.Stir until sugar is dissolved. Use immediately and store leftover in an airtight container in refrigerator. It is yummy.
