Thank God for padded toilet seats

When I realized Monday that training starts this Sunday, I got scared.  Who am I kidding?!  I am NOT ready!  Here's why...

I started doing P90X November 8, 2010 and was LOVING it!  I was really noticing some definition, especially in my upper body (see my "after" shot below.... HAAAAHAHAHAH), and it just made me feel good (aside from some minor knee issues from the plyometrics workout).

 Then I got sick...what I thought was a little cough put me in the ER with a pulled muscle and on pneumonia meds for 20 days!  Thanks to my stubborn stupidity, I was forced to rest.   

Since I have "gotten better," all I have done physically was run once, if I'm lucky, twice/week (2-4 mile treadmill run) on the weekend.  Except this week, once I realized that I am NOT ready to start BSR training, I had the brilliant idea to try a couple of P90X workouts.  Last night, my workout of choice was legs & back and oh my word.  My glutes are so incredibly sore... so sore that I held my breathe, clung to the wall and cringed every time I had to get up or sit sown at work.  When I got home, I went right to our powder room to use the bathroom and oh what a glorious experience - we have a padded toilet seat in that particular bathroom.  Thank GOD for padded toilet seats!  I am REALLY scared now!
