- I feel better when I'm physically active and apparently I like an ass-kicking when it comes to a work out.
- I spend way too much time on my duff working online and writing my books.
- I want to be healthier and more physically fit.
Except, then I passed the fitness test with flying colors. I was actually able to do everything and then more. It was a surprising place in which to find myself - the bookworm art kid being able to do better than minimum on a physical test. This got me pumped.
So today when I did my first workout (I'm following the 'Lean' program. For those of you familiar with P90X, you know this is heavy on cardio and light on resistance). Core Synergistics was intense. I didn't finish every exercise and I didn't use any weights today. Still, my abs were exhausted and my glutes are sore. It's been a while since either of those things have been true from exercises. Needless to say, I was psyched as I downed my protein shake this morning.
I've seen a lot of people post negative reactions to the program, as well as plenty of success stories. Hopefully I feel just as pumped at the end of the week as I do today, and again at the end of the month. My long term plan is to complete each of the 90 day variations starting with Lean, going on to Classic, and rounding it out with Doubles. We'll see how the first run through works. My first goal is to finish all the exercises in each work out. Each step brings me closer. Here's hoping it works out!
