For those of you who may be using P90X to get into shape before the baby comes let me just give you a couple of pointers.
You have many more things to do before the baby arrives, and you will be amazed at how insignificant your fitness is in the big picture.
When the baby does come, if you are in shape and part way through your program a large part of your brain will be beating you up while you spend time adjusting rather than working out.
It can be done. I just couldn’t do it.
So that brings me here, the day after the baby came home, 4 days after the birth and I am off work for 3 weeks. I literally cannot waste any time of my “vacation” sitting around doing nothing. I promised that I would use this time as a springboard to get my P90X journey back on track and since I eclipsed my time on the program with down time over the last 2 months I thought it was time to start over. I also realized that I needed a better idea of what I was actually going to do rather than trying to adjust on the fly. So here I go, the program I promised myself and the return to fitness I promised my new daughter so that her Dad won’t be the fat guy at the PTA meetings.
