P90X: Day 5 Legs and Back

After my tumble off the wagon yesterday, I jumped back on in glorious style! Today, I again started just a bit too late to get in my Ab RipperX, But I did get in the last one I missed so I'll just hit it in the AM when I get off work. This workout was a beast as are all the rest, but the fact that my quads are still burning(and I still have trouble bending down to sit) made this a real test of mental fortitude. But I did it. I did mod some of the routine to adjust for the fiery discomfort in my lower thighs and for obvious balance issues. I am starting to enjoy my workout time, I just keep thinking about my outcome in the end!

Also, I know I shouldn't be doing it, But I have a back habit of using the scale... I feel good and have been following my nutrition plan with no cheating, But I've gained 4lbs. Now I know that muscle weighs more than fat, but it's way to soon(4 days) to see that big of a change in my BMI. I am putting the scale up tomorrow and won't get it back out until day 30, that way I don't get discouraged. The only thing I can associate the gain with is either water weight or the combo of my Protein shake w/ L-Glut. tablets. Again, I'll just do what I need to do and stay the course. Tomorrow is Kempo X... wish me luck! Thanks for reading. 5 days done, 85 to go!( I'm not going to keep the day timer going for much longer, I'm just having fun!)
