I've been busy! I'm on week 5 of p90x, and determined to get back on track. I'd done the round of Couch to 5k in Spring, and after I got back from my graduation vacation with my mom, I fell off the fitness wagon. It took a while to get back into the swing, but I feel so good right now.
p90x is not easy. It sucks to get home from work and spend the little down time I have exercising, but in the long run, it's worth it. I have more energy, I crave less of the things that are bad for me, and I just feel STRONG. Unlike the majority of individuals, I love yoga X. It's a pain in the ass, but the balance poses make me feel so happy. I love pushing the boundaries of my flexibility. I think it's really import to challenge ourselves physically, and to be more aware of the body. It makes it so much easier to treat the body with respect if you are present within it.
I've made a lot of progress eliminating processed foods from my diet. I finally gave up dairy (with a cheeseburger every once and a while), and I eat primarily fruits and vegetables. I notice the big difference when I consume things that are not good for me, compared to nourishing my body with good foods. My skin is better, my temperament is better.
I've got a long way to go, but I try to remember how far I've come. I can do push-ups, I can do the wheel pose, plough, and my knees no longer bother me. I definitely recommend it. I will try to see this through to 90 days but remind myself that it doesn't end there!
