Day 5 P90X

As usual, I haven't been keeping up the blog, what's new right?

Friday 2/4 we had a "snow day" here in TX... this is funny because it was maybe 1/8" of snow and was gone by 10:00, but never the less the state is not equipped to handle such massive amounts of snow, so the entire city shut down. This gave us a fun, unexpected "family day". Of course, this also meant a lot of indoor time after the snow melted, so K asked about the P90x video's I had gotten about 6 months ago. I loaded up her database, ran through the schedule, and she decided to "bring it" right there and then. I've been wanting to get in shape, so I decided to join her. Working out together made the time pass more quickly, and E found the entire thing hilarious. She couldn't stop laughing at her mom and dad dancing around doing some sort of strange mating ritualistic dance. The next day we were bot sore, but in a good way, finding muscles that have been lying dormant for years. It's good to have a work out partner, even if we aren't working out at the same time, being on the same schedule/program will help us to motivate each other. Now we just need to stick with it for the full 3 months and hopefully end a lot of bad habits.

So today is Day 5. Yesterday was "Yoga", so I figured what the heck, I can do it before bed... let me tell you something here guys, if you haven't done yoga before, don't dismiss it so quickly. It was freaking hard! By far the hardest thing I've done in some time. It's difficult to believe how much flexibility I've lost over the last two decades, even so, I never had this kind of ability. I can only hope that as the weeks and months go by I'll be able to do more.... I have to say, I really like yoga, from the breathing to the stretching to the stabilizing muscle use... you can't cheat in yoga!

Today is legs, back and abs!

Since my trip to the desert, we've been off our program. K has been sick, and I've been playing catch up @ work. We'll start again in the next week, but it really is much more motivating to do it together. You know the whole doing stuff together thing is great (as was noted in Maui).

The worst part about E is she can do everything without even batting an eyelash... damn youth really is wasted on the young!
