There is no challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself.
Michael F. Staley
Day 01: No pain no gain. Felt completely wasted midway, then threw up, then became a puddle of goo on the bathroom floor for 15 minutes as I contemplated what my gravestone would say: “Here lies a man, who took on P90X, and ended up here on the first day”. Shaking my fist at Tony Horton for making me throw up. $100 says I’ll be asleep by 11 tonight.
Day 02: Warm up exercises are beating me up! Thought to myself, “What did I get myself into?!” First 15 minutes and thinking of how good it would be to crawl back to bed. Whey protein however does wonders for instant recovery; didn’t throw up or pass out; still tough however.
Day 03: Almost skipped today due to extreme soreness but continued anyway.
Day 04: Seeing it was yoga today, I thought it was going to be an easy breeze. WRONG! Brushing my teeth or bringing my hands to my face requires an insane amount of effort; the shoot tonight will be a challenge. What happens when I have an itchy eye, or nose?
Day 05: I never knew my glutes could be insanely sore. Today was legs and back workout. My back is screaming (in a good way), but more importantly, my toes are sore.
Day 06: Just when other parts of my body are feeling better, new uncharted muscle groups come up extremely sore in the mornings. Hitting the snooze button has become a fiasco.
Day 07: Rest!!! Oh how I love thee! My biological clock has been fast forwarded some 40 years due to every inch of my body being sore. Can I scratch my nose when it itches? No. Brush my teeth? Only after some groans and moans. People would think I was passing some kidney stones or something if they walk passed the bathroom.
