First day of P90X

So I finally did it. I really could not be more happy with myself. I was really not looking forward to it and even put a box of mac and cheese by the stove so that I could have something to cry my tears into afterwards. My favorite comforate food.

I only did half of the first video but considering I haven’t had a serious workout in years I did better than I thought. My shoulds are still a little shaky and the sweat on my forward is just cooling off. When I did my quarterly pathetic work out at the gym before, I always reached for a cigarette as soon as I got in the car. I smoked my last one on the way home from work today-and that was my second one of the day. I’m dying for a cigarette right now and I really want to go make that mac and cheese but I think I’ll settle for a cup of coffee and a bowl of cornflakes with banana slices. I am trying to change my life and I have to do it one step at a time.


I hope my strength will last til I get to work because history tells me I will stop at the local QT and pick up a pack of cigarettes without even thinking twice.

Anyway, my point is that I feel great right now. My lungs are heavy but in a good way and my forward is now stiff from dried sweat! I hope I am sore tomorrow. I love being sore!


I am starting to get tired but I wanted to log on and tell the world that I finally told myself to do the P90x and I did it! Even if it was just half of the first DVD.
