As you might have guessed from the post before, the plan for reaching my goal will be via the p90x program. I had seen the informercials for it thinking "okay those are the most insane results from any fitness program/equipment I've seen on tv". I mean, seriously flabby flab to ab fab. On top of that, I know a few people closely that have done the program, and I have seen the results with my own eyes. I myself started doing the program, before I stopped 3 weeks in. I do have to say though, in those 3 weeks I built a lot of strength and had increased energy in doing other activities. In about 5 weeks I went from being able to do 1-2 pull ups, to 5-6. Granted, 6 still wasn't much, but it was a 300% increase in ability.
Well now that I have the blueprints, it's just a matter of building, which everyone knows is the hard part. I will be leaving for China on Jan 12, for about 12 days, so unfortunately I won't be starting my program before then. My China trip is going to be an eating and drinking binge... which i'm quite looking forward to. The food is so good and cheap. So I figure it wouldn't do much to start the program just days before a trip like that. But after that, it's time to take it seriously.
Last year, it was a goal of mine to post something almost everyday, revealing what i've been eating, how i've been working out, my failures and successes, etc. This time around i'm gonna keep it a little more free flowing just so I don't feel pressured or overwhelmed by having to post something everyday. But I don't want this blog to be just about me and my journey of fitness. I also want it to be a source and forum for people who follow me, so I will be posting stuff that could be beneficial to someone else who might be going through the same thing... such as recipes I've come up with, tips for cooking, working out, shopping, eating out, as well as tips for succeeding, etc.
So become a follower and see how I do! Keep me accountable! Maybe you'll learn some things that'll help you reach your new year's goals, or offer something to help me meet mine!
