One of the biggest challenges I face in getting and staying fit it is having a hectic lifestyle. I work full time and have three kids. My oldest is in Scouts and the kids and I do karate as a family (though we're not all at the same level). We have a lot of great friends and family that we love to spend time with. When in all of this can I slot in some time to work out? Do I really have to get up at 5:30 every morning to get it all in?
Last night found me with about 40 oz. of beer and a cigar (I haven't had one in almost a year, so no hounding... it's not a habit) in me while at a concert. Despite leaving the concert before it was over (we'd heard and seen all we needed to), we didn't get home until after 11 and I cralwed into bed around midnight. Get up at 5:30 to do an hour and a half of yoga? Um, I don't really think so.
You see, with the P90X program, you're working out for one to one and a half hours, six days a week. Typically, you do all the days back-to-back, and on the seventh day you rest and marvel in all the great things you've accomplished (this program can, indeed, be a religious experience). For me and my crazy lifestyle, I'm going to try my hardest to get all the workouts in, but if I have to take my day off on Thursday (or whatever day) to do it, that's what I'm going to have to do.
