Needing to change my game plan.

I reach a milestone today. Its been 6 months since I started my journey to fitness with P90X. I don't know the exact calculations, but I've probably filled up the equivalent of a small kiddie pool with sweat over the last 6 months.

My wife has had to do a lot more laundry since I've started. All those workout clothes add up. (I love my wife, she spoils me. Thanks Babe!)

I'm now able to crank out a set of 15 pull ups, when I started back in September, 2 pull ups were tough.

However, despite all the progress I've made with P90X, I'm starting to hit a wall. I'm seriously running out of motivation. It's not that I no longer wanting to work out. The other day on Tuesday I went for a jog which quickly turned into a brisk run. I loved it. My point is that I'm a bit bored with Tony Horton.

Tony, if you're reading this, "It's not's me." LOL. Any time you do the same workout program for 6 months you're bound to get to the point where you need to change it up. I've noticed a severe lack of intensity from myself lately. Maybe you guys out there reading have picked up on it. The intensity has been there when I start a workout, but the mental intensity hasn't been there throughout my day. As a result, my diet has suffered, and I'm not as focused.

That being said I have a new game plan. I go on a business trip to Philadelphia and in turn New Jersey and New York next week. When I get back, I'm going to start to do ChaLEAN Extreme with Monica. Well, Monica is on week 7 or 8, so I'll be starting from the beginning. I'm sure we'll find a way to work out together as the schedule allows. (We actually got to work out with one another last night by doing CEX Burn Intervals and Extreme Abs.)

The one modification I'm going to have to make with CEX is to find a way to fit in pull ups. I don't want to lose all the progress I've made in this area.

Thanks to all of you reading. I also want to say a special thanks to all of you who checked in on me regarding my previous post about Ab Ripper. It helps me to realize there are a significant number of you out there reading.


  1. You're breaking up with Tony??! ::tear:: LOL

  2. That's what you call the X theory in training. Got to mix it up, keep it fresh and different you you'll lose passion. It's about having a passion to punish yourself each day.

    Now, let Chalene put hurting on ya! Be careful not to "stare" at the screen for fear of you know what!
