Hey...I have a new reader!

Its fun when I get some feedback that my blog has inspired or motivated some folks. I mainly write here for my own gratification and journaling, but knowing a few people are checking in on a regular basis is a good feeling.

I met another person starting off P90X. His name is Matt and he's blogging about his experience as well. Check out his blog: P90X Beat Down!

The past couple days have gone well. Tuesday was Yoga, and like every week in Yoga I'm making definite improvements. This past week I probably produced more sweat than any other week in Yoga, but I was hitting a lot of the moves. Here's a tip I like to use. For me, I don't like to do the Yoga. I find any reason to procrastinate. So Tuesday morning I moved the coffee table out of the living room and put my Yoga mat down on the ground before I left for work. When I got back home, I had that visual reminder staring me in the face. It helped me to get right into it when I got home. I didn't waste any time at all.

Yesterday was Legs and Back. About 15 minutes into the workout I felt a little tweak in my knee. It was a bit painful, so I lowered the intensity and weight on some exercises. I also cut back on lunges with my right knee bent. I finished the workout and by the end the pain was mostly gone. I'm just hoping it was one of those random pains but I'll be keeping a close eye on it. My original plan was to put off today's Kenpo until Friday but as the day goes on I think I'll get Kenpo done this afternoon.

Finally, I'd like to let you all know that I've signed up as a Beach Body coach. Beach Body is the company that produces the P90X program along with several other popular home workout programs. As a coach I'll be able to help other people reach their fitness goals. My first customer is my lovely wife Monica who just started Turbo Jam this week.

As a coach, I'd be remiss if I didn't remind you all to play WOWY or "Work Out With You" on the Beach Body site. Every day you log your workout on the site you're eligible for the daily prize up to $1000.00 in cash. If you want to sign up to play the game you can follow this link to my coach page. Go there and click on "Play the Game."

Well, that's all for now. I'm almost to the 2nd recovery week.

Remember: Hope is not an action plan!

  1. I have just started following your blog and I do find it so inspiring. I am about to start my journey with P90X as soon as I purchase the equipment and stock/rid the fridge and pantry the way they should be. I have taken the fitness test-totally smoked those minimum scores. I am so excited!!! Thanks for your blog!!!
