...but I hate it! That's such a true testament to Pee-Ninty-Ex. I've completed 7 days, and only 83 more to go! Week one has taught me a few things about myself, the workout program, and staying fit.
I learned that my body can hurt in places I didn't even know existed. I also learned that there is little hope for me to accomplish this routine on my own. Without my two workout buddies, Kelbe and BJ, I am almost positive I wouldn't have made it past this week (it's that extreme, I promise you!). There is no doubt they have been my life support (as well as the comical "Beach Bodies" promotion after the workout). To quote Ace Ventura in a Scottish accent quoting Scottie from Star Trek, "I just can't do it, Captain. I don't have the power!"
I also learned that it takes an extremely vain person to lead the workouts each day. Tony Horton is the definition of vanity. This guy loves himself, and he loves these workouts. You have to when leading such an extreme routine. Just look at this guy (see above)!
Lastly, I am learning daily the affects of not caring for my body. Although I'm still a ripe 28, I am beginning to see signs of age on my body. It's taking longer to walk around the house after getting out of bed in the morning, it's taking longer to heal from injury, and I'm starting to ache (not hurt) in places of which old people talk (joints, back, hips). I truly believe I am helping prolong my life. It's amazing what real exercise and good eating habits can do to a person's outlook. It's already paying off. And I love it!
Pictures will be coming soon on the progress from the X. I just have to get the courage to do so (and permission from my wife)!
