Sorry I have to submit you to this nasty photo, but come on turds in the bowl are funny. I feel like a bit of P90X turd in the bowl right now. Week 3 didn't go as well as it should have. I have my list of excuses - work was busy, I got into a car accident on Thursday (minor, my fault, boo) and that consumed me that day. Most of all, Gary and I made the big decision to really try and sell our house this spring and I got super excited and started packing stuff up so that when the real tors come next week our house isn't a disaster.
I also got addicted to a book - The Walking Dead compendium 1 - which is a compilation
of 48 issues of a zombie graphic novel and I was up too late reading it. I have never read a comic book in my life, but I loved the AMC show so much I had to check out where it came from. So, so good. The books are a bit pricey and hard to come by, I ordered the compilation from Amazon, check it out. So, getting up early was tough.
I missed 3 workouts this week and since I missed one during week 2, I am going to do this week over. No biggie. I did do plyometrics, shoulders/back and arms/shoulders this week. Still tough, but getting a bit easier b/c I know the workouts. Tony really does talk
too much, so I found myself fast forwarding through some of his long winded explanations. Long week. I am looking forward to getting my shiz together next week, I have to get up early to get it done, no other way.
On another note. I have started standing up most of my work day. I know I look a bit wierd, but if you google it, you will find that standing at work is much better for you and actually burns about 120-140 calroies an hour! I have been doing it for 3 weeks now. I started with 2 hours a
day and now do 4-5. I'm sure a few peo;le think I am just trying to be odd or get attention, but I really like it. I can already tell huge improvements in my posture. To do it, all I did was prop my laptop up on a banana box I snagged from the office recycling bin! I need to wrap it so its more pretty. Check out this article from the NY times to learn more.
