"Yep. Nice and blumpy!" he answered with confidence.
He then started poking each cheek in turn as if jabbing at two quivering bowls full of JELL-O.
"Balump, balump, balump, balump!!" he sang.
Yikes. Out of the mouths of babes indeed. Yet another one of life's reminders that practicing what ya preach is a real biotch.
I know I've been slacking. Remember the slippery slope? Clearly the time has come for more than just commuter crunches and running in place whilst waiting for my Chai latte to heat up.
So... my sister Ange actually bought me the full Beachbody P90X workout kit a couple of months ago.
This morning after Spidey's...um... compliment, I retrieved the dusty P90X box from the shelf where it's been sitting since it arrived.
No time like the present, right?
Given that I did the whole "carpe diem" thing with the Quantum Wellness Cleanse as well, I'm feeling like this is a positive trend for me.
It's November 28 and it would have been so "me" (in the past) to rationalize waiting until the first of December. And then, since I'll be traveling... waiting until the next Monday. Then, it would be almost Christmas and who starts a new fitness program right before Christmas?
Well, no excuses. I'm starting today.
First, I had to do a "fit test" to make sure the P90X won't kill me. I passed the test without passing out. Whew!
I went on the Beachbody.com website, created my profile and entered all my beginning measurements and stats. I watched Tony Horton's instructional "watch this first" DVD. Miss M. took my new "before" photos. (Yeah, I'm so not posting those until I have the "afters" to share!)
My first WOWY SuperGym workout is scheduled for 1pm today. Chest & Back plus Ab Ripper X.
Somehow the word "ripper" in a workout routine should scare me, but I am a huge fan of the regular Power 90 program. Bring it on!

Thanks in advance for your support!!
