Day 2

Today we found out that plyometrics is actually the P90X way of saying cardio. I strayed horribly from my diet today, the chinese for dinner was accompanied by an attractive companion so how could I say no?
So yeah, for anyone not in Jersey, it snowed in NJ today. Where the shit did that come from? The weather guy this morning said scattered showers and a possibility of snow west and north of the city...I live neither of those two and it snowed for hours. You know when the flakes get really big that usually means the snow is almost over? Not today, it was big old chunks the whole time. There was an actual "diff" sound effect as each one of them hit my hood. So my point is work was a little harder today than I thought it would be, or on an average day so an hour of cardio was a little more challenging than I would prefer.
The high knees and jumping stuff really sucked...especially for my downstairs neighbor. I would feel bad about it but she and her boyfriend/cuckold fight all the time and I have to hear it so fair is fair. Again I couldn't really keep up with the guys on the DVD but it's only day two, I don't think I'm supposed to be keeping up.
So I'm 99% sure Erik Stolhanske of Supertroopers fame is one of the people working out on the DVD. I'm going to have to confer with my team of experts/friends to confirm this fact for you but that was pretty cool. Tomorrow is Shoulders&Arm plus abs agin...woo...I can't wait.

You ever think about loosing a few pounds there Rammy?

So I started this blog as a hope to be an outlet for my comedic outbursts and I'll admit, I've been lazy and sucked at it. So now, I'm going to try and use it for another purpose too. I recently ordered P90X, a DVD workout plan sold on the internet and over those TV infomercials. Long and short, it's a workout plan that gives you different workouts to do over 90 days and through "muscle confusion" your body never plateaus or gets used to the work out and the results are incredible.
I've been going to the gym pretty regularly over the last year plus and while I like what I see so far, I'm definitly looking for some visable results faster. I've been jogging and lifting, ran my first 5K earlier this month, but I still feel like I'm seen as a skinny guy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking to get absolutely huge, but I want to get myself in really good shape and have people be able to tell.
So I started P90X this evening. I worked today, not a very hard day at work but not a lazy one, came home, ate a lean quisine dinner, and put the day one DVD in. I can tell you right now it's the toughest workout I've done in a very long time. I'm a little disapointed tat I couldn't keep up with the people on the DVD at all but, it's my day one and they're trained professionals.
I'm going to try and keep my progress posted here and all that, right now I'm going to try and figure out how to put some day one pics up for you. By the way, my starting weight is 162lbs.
