    Day 4/90: Yoga X. Done. Sort of.

    For the first time during the P90x, I feel truly and utterly outclassed by the workout. About 40 minutes into the hour and a half yoga routine, my muscles were pretty shot and I was starting to feel light headed and dizzy, so I called it quits. I did watch the rest of it, though. The first 50 minutes are all variations of the same basic exercise, and if I could have made it 8 more minutes I would have gone on to different, and in some cases, easier stuff.

    I'll continue on for now, but I may need to find alternatives. If nothing else, though, I'm learning what areas I really need to work on to get myself back in shape.

I haven't found the physical strenght for anything but walking & flexibility exercises for some time. I think my time schedule contributes to it. I write my work 10-12 hours a day, on average, day on, day on. I've been too something something perhaps to exercise.

    My time of walking / week has reduced to less than an hour. Flexibility, just once/twice per week, 5-10 minutes at a time.

    But, I positively know I want to get good health & fitness back, and I'll be able if I graduate I'll have that much of a better opportunity for good work, which will leave me plenty of time for exercise, later.
    Sorry to hear you have to drop out of the competition. However, school definitely comes first. I wish you the best! I hope you continue with the walking and flexibility, though! A healthy body makes for a healthy mind.

    Good luck!

    Didn't get to walk to school today. I walked a little, remembered I forgot something, tried to run back, got too winded to continue, and then walked back, and then had convince my dad to drive me to school.

    Running felt absolutely horrible. I don't understand it.

    25 minutes weight training.

    You just reminded me...
    The first day my exercise videos came in the mail, my family got a big kick out of the fact that I sat down with a bowl of popcorn to watch them!!

    My reasoning was entirely sound...
    I just wanted to know what to expect!

    Hahaha! I've been doing the same thing, when I have time. I'll cook dinner, plop down on the couch, and start watching the next day's videos. I generally have a better workout when I do that, too, because I know where I can push myself and where I may need to pace myself.

    Nothing like the feeling that your skin is going to split because the body part you're working is full of blood. And you're out of breath from pushing the weights with max intensity, with maximum focus.

    You don't need luck. Everyone else needs it. You'll do fine.
