…Part 14 of 90 (END OF WEEK 2)!!

That’s right, bitches, I AM 2 WEEKS THROUGH THE 12 WEEKS OF PHYSICAL DESTRUCTION AND REBUILDING KNOWN AS P90X.

I feel great, and that’s obviously because I’ve been physically active for the last 14 days. I’ve also been eating more, which I think also means eating better, as I’ve been more careful about what I”m putting into my body. I’ve upped the fish intake, but also (hopefully) lowered my overall fat intake. No more peanuts (seriously, a tough thing for me to give up), way fewer bags of potato chips, and I’m going easy on the oils. The net results? Well, we’ll see that in two weeks when I “weigh in” again. Full numbers will be published, of course (if I can find a way to measure body fat %).

On a mental note, I’m getting into this whole “spend an hour a day working out” thing. I workout in the evenings, after getting home from the office but before writing or putting off writing in favor of watching tv (current line-up involves Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, 30 Rock, and Modern Family). It’s a nice routine, and one that’s not hard to stick to assuming I don’t have anything else to do. Sadly, I know at some point I’m going to miss a workout, but hopefully all that will do is shift the schedule a day. I figure a few instances of that won’t hurt me too badly, especially since I know that one of those instances will involve me skiing, which is a workout of its own. And all this P90Xing is going to have me ripped for the slopes too! I’m gonna tear those double black diamonds a new set of moguls.

So, stay tuned for more videos, some more in-depth discussion of how it feels to beat one’s self up each and every day, and hopefully some half-naked pictures! Sexy!

…Part 7 of 90!!

 

That’s right folks, IT’S THE END OF WEEK 1.WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Seven days in and I’ve done some core work, some cardio, some shoulders and arms, some abs, some legs and back, some kenpo (aka karate), and some stretching. It’s a lot for one week, but the workouts are surprisingly simple at times. Occasionally we delve into the complex (you have no idea how long it took me to get low blocks right), but after a week I’m pretty sure I understand most of the moves here. And thankfully, it’s the same workout each day of each week for the 1st three weeks, so I’ve got time to nail everything down. Week four will be more cardio than muscle work, and then it’s into Phase 2.

All in all, I feel good about starting this program. I was nervous at first, A) because I didn’t want to start it and then fail, and B) because I’ve never been much of a believer in these kinds of programs. I mean, I’m all about fitness, but I’m pretty convinced that doing just a little bit of work every day (some jogging, or lifting, or sporting) + eating sparsely and mostly fruits, veggies, and grains = staying in good shape. Sure, you won’t end up looking like Tony Horton that way, but you’ll live longer, have more energy, and will still get to enjoy nice things in life like steak, tv, and whatever other bad habits you might want. Essentially, it’s all about moderation, right?

This program is not about moderation.

It’s about busting your ass every day for at least an hour, and avoiding bad foods (i.e. stuff that tastes better than most other stuff). That’s not to say that you can’t enjoy living like that. Plenty of people do. I suppose it’s partly how you’re wired, and partly discipline. But I love certain things, and partaking of those things makes me happy, so I’m gonna do what I want most of the time, and make up for it the rest of the time. So why the hell am I doing P90X?

 

Well, you gotta give the other side a try sometimes. Plus, if I can get to a nice little platform of fitness, it may be ten times easier to stay in good shape while still enjoying myself. So let’s hope this thing works out.

 

I’ll see you all in one week.

-Joe
