Yes, I have challenges. I also have victories.

I need to eat more vegetables.

I need to find a good supplement for my primal diet since the above will probably always hold true.

I need to get more sleep.

I need to stop talking about it and just do it and in order to do that I need to take a moment and reflect on something.

P90X and Insanity are manufactured and distributed by Beachbody, but what’s in a a name? I remember vividly when I first heard about P90 on the TV (before P90X was around) and the company and thought what a genius name it was. After all, what better definition of a perfect physique is there than having a beach body. A gym body gives rise to all sorts of preconceptions like manly women, steroid freaks and sweaty pimply gym rats but a beach body is simple in it’s elegance. That said, yesterday I remembered that thought as I caught the end of the Insanity DVD I had done and the BB team were hanging around spitballing about P90X and it suddenly occurred to me that I was in that place. I had actually made it to the place I had intended to be pre-p90 so many years ago. I can’t even say when exactly it happened but for a few minutes there I was happy, and actually pretty proud of myself upon that realization. Sure, I have a way to go, but for now I’m taking a second to appreciate my progress towards what once was an almost unbelievable goal.

That reflection is motivation enough for me at this point…
