Tonight I was emailing a couple people and it just really hit me like a ton of bricks. I was giving out some advice on foods and getting through the first week of P90X, and bam… I’m thinking “Who the heck is this person?” That’s not me!
6 months ago I was a 2 pack a day smoker that hadnt worked out in 5 years. I didnt know anything about nutrition, or at least very little.
Now, here’s this guy that has lost 60 pounds, put on all sorts of muscle that wasnt there before, has a knowledge of nutrition and it’s growing daily.
What the heck happened??
This is all I know. When I started P90X, I made the decision to finish it. I was able to lose a lot of weight, and once I saw that it was possible, I didnt want to quit. I wanted to keep going, learning more, pushing myself. I want it to be second nature. I feel it’s something that we never got an education in. Sure there was gym class, but I’m talking about the whole ball of wax.
If exercise, nutrition, and health aren’t all deeply related, I dont know what is. Now as a society, it’s second nature to drive, there are many many things that we do as second nature now. Why shouldnt exercise and nutrition be one of those things? We certainly cant keep feeding the medical monster that we’ve been building.
It wasnt a quick over night thing, and I’m no where near done. It’s something that I enjoy doing now. I know that I’m taking care of myself, I’m building a nice little Beachbody Coaching business, and I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in… and getting better all the time. So why wouldnt I want to chase after that?
I’ve got more energy than I think I’ve ever had in my life! I’m actually busy, but I feel like I have more time than every.
Ok, well that’s my update for tonight. Hope all is well!
