My Husband and P90X 9/8/09
Change is good. Commitment to a change....even better.
It is P90X week 3 day two for Jay and week 11 day two for me.
The Beachbody motto is...Decide.Commit.Succeed
I think it is a perfect motto. It covers all the phases of starting and maintaining a workout program or regimen. Many of us want to do something to make a change in ourselves for the better, whether it is a change on the outside, inside, or both. And many of us begin that journey . It starts out fine, but somewhere along the way, we lose our drive, Life happens, busy schedules, peer pressure, lack of motivation...the list goes on and on.
As kids, we go to school because well, our parents tell us we have to. Because they know something we do not in the beginning. It is for bettering ourselves. We are learning not only academics that will help us succeed later in our lives, but also the keys to wellness, hopefully. Through a daily routine of Physical Health..i.e. Gym, Mental Health...through our brain learning new things and applying them, and Social Health... or friends and teachers.
It is a balance of these three components that make wellness in a person. This is necessary to succeed in living our life to its capacity and achieving happiness. So why is it that for most of us after we graduate or our time at school has come to an end that we stop balancing these three steps to wellness? Because we have no one there telling us, we have to "just because".
We have to be that person for ourselves. But if we are lucky to have someone to coach us through, that is a bonus. For those that do...awesome. For those that do not have a support person but absolutely has made it to the Decide stage, I would love to help you. I am always here, just drop me an email. Really, I want to help you!!! I can help you Commit.
Jay is in between Commit and Succeed. He is still going strong. More confidence everyday and there is more happiness showing through. When he did Core Synergistics yesterday...he really was impressed with himself. I am having the best time helping him do this. He takes medication for high blood pressure and I am really looking forward to see what his Doctor says the next visit which is coming up soon. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, he is just plowing through the P90X program.
Today is Cardio X and for me, Plyometrics.
