that time I started P90X

Because I hate myself and love myself at the same time.

Because after talking to Blair in Palm Springs about her amazing abs I was pretty much convinced.

Because a week or so after that a trainer friend told me that if people were disciplined and did P90X, she'd be out of a job.

So I figured, it's worth a shot, right? I've been dying to start working out again, but I feel guilty leaving Midasman at home at night when I've already been gone all day. I loved doing Body for Life, and I kept up with those workouts long after I stopped doing the diet (interval training is the best for cardio), but they require a ton of equipment. This is (hopefully) the solution.

Today was Day 1 and I have to say...what's the big deal?

Just kidding. The only reason I survived the workout without dying is because I could do many of the exercises on the floor. It's a little hard to do floor work when a tiny puppy is crawling all over you and trying to lick your face until he gets to the tootsie roll center.

Despite the Midas monster's interference, I managed to get a really good work out in, and I'm sure once he gets used to it I'll be able to do floor work.

Or I will spend the next 90 days with puppy tongue up my nose during plank, and doing push ups with him on my back.

Puppy tongue up the nose while working out is kind of hilarious! Zoe likes to sit on my stomach while I do sit ups and lick my face continually. Also, good luck with it - I've seen some amazing results! (From other people, not me... I'm a wuss.)

Thank you for your shout out. I'm so sorry that I'm only just seeing the post now. I hope that it's going well for you. I only made it through about 60 days before the bar exam go to me and I tapped out. Still, it was so worth it. I used to put a little recovery drink in my water to get through plyo because I hated it so much.
