What an off week. I have to say it seems like I'm going to put this week to bed and call a do-over next week. I'm trying not to feel too guilty about this, but I just have not felt well enough this week to push the Extremeness of P90X. I ... Read more

Thursday, August 12, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday I woke up fluish. I was disappointed (and relieved) to take the day off from P90X. I figured I'd make it up on my rest day, Friday. Unfortunately, today I didn't feel much better. But missing another day wasn't an option. So I... Read more

I can't believe it's been 10 days since I've posted a blog! Guess I got out of the habit. No worries though, I haven't gotten out of the 'exercise' habit. I'm on Day 66 of P90X and still going strong. I just increased my weight (lbs) and... Read more

45 Days in. A good time to reflect on why it's OK to modify your routine. I started out this P90X journey determined not to falter. I pledged to workout to each routine, in order, every day, and 45 days in, I have to say I've done pretty ... Read more

Opted for just Back & Biceps today. This week will probably be the hottest week of the year here, so not going to overdo. I might jump in the pool later for a little extra activity. Yesterday I opted for Cardio X instead of Plyo. It's ... Read more

Wednesday, July 14, 2010      1 comments

Some days it's hard to push though, but you gotta do it. I guess it's time to take some measurements. Maybe that will make me feel better since the scale refuses to move. I keep telling myself that Muscle weighs more than Fat and that my body... Read more
