Today was my rest day and it was well needed. I can't believe I'm already almost two weeks into P90X... it feels like I just started last week. As far as the weights go, I think I really need to lift heavier and less reps. Right now I do about 15 reps but I want to bring that down to max out at 12 at the most, but aim for 10 reps. Right in the middle of giving me muscle and leaning out (is it even possible to do both?). When I do Shoulders and Arms again (this coming Sunday), I'll totally see what can be done. I'm not feeling the muscle soreness after my sessions, but that's not unusual for me because I normally don't. I feel like I'm lifting to exhaustion, but think I really need to focus on fully concentrating and PUSHING MYSELF to the point that I'm uncomfortable. Not with pain, but with my limit. I am extremely eager to get results and I KNOW I can do it. Time, effort, and proper nutrition is all I need.
