So that I don’t turn into an absolute squishball this summer, with my ass in front of my laptop prepping for fall classes and the literary program in October (when Daniel is at daycare), I’ve finally cracked open the P90X DVDs that I bought back in January and started the program last week.
Just two words: GOOD GOD!!!!
Having done absolutely no exercise since Daniel’s birth (I had to quit my martial arts class because I was barely hanging in there, balancing work and home life, and something had to give — which still makes me sad), I was afraid that I was too remedial for this exercise program and that I would really hurt myself.
Fortunately, thanks to Technogypsy’s training, enough of my former fitness was intact that, even though I was sloppy and out of breath and about to faint a few times, I could still hang in there. And, after a week, I can feel that it’s making a difference (even though my appearance hasn’t changed).
The real test is, once the fall classes begin, if I’m able to continue. I’m determined to finish the whole 90-day program, ending in mid-October. All I know is that, in order for me to keep up with everything in my life, I need to be healthy and fit. Afterall, the Big 4-0 is only a few, short years away, and I’ll still have a very young son to keep up with.
Anyways — must log off and do an hour’s worth of push-ups and pull-ups today!
