|this is not me.|
I feel really good - which is the whole point. I am finishing up week 6 of P90X (almost half way!) and I am already noticing marked changes in my body. My legs are looking leaner, there is definition in my shoulders I have never seen before, and for the first time in a long time, my back doesn't hurt. Mind you, on most days I am sore from working out, but it is a good sore (one that tells me I'm pushing myself hard enough).
The "before" pictures I took (which I will share when I have "after" pictures to post alongside them) are a huge motivator for me. That and how good I feel when I am done whatever program I have that day. The great thing about P90X is that if you have a routine that you aren't particularly fond of, the most you have to do it is once a week. I'm finding that routines I didn't like in the beginning are now among my favourites (I'm looking at you Kenpo X). The chin ups will likely never be on my "fun" list, nor will the one arm push ups, but you never know, right? I bet there are guys out there who despised the 90 minute Yoga X when they started who now swear by it.
I have seven more weeks to go and I am already looking forward to doing the entire program again (which is crazy, I know). There is something about this Tony Horton guy that makes you want to come back for more. I think I have finally found something that works for me. Now, if I can just keep myself off the damn scale...
