Well disciplined, but no direction - just ordered P90X
I've always been very well disciplined when I set my mind to something. I have come to a point where I am tired of sitting at my office job and looking into a career with a little bit more physical activity/outdoors. With that said, I'll need to get into better shape. I'm currently 5'9 1/2", 188lbs, and pretty solid on my chest/shoulders/legs. I tend to look lighter than I am because I have a good deal of muscle mass leftover from working out in H.S.
I have some work to do on my midsection, definitely not a beach body, but not as bad as I have been in the past.
In the past I was always willing and able to stick with a plan and achieve goals. The problem I had was setting the plan. I am very good about sticking to a diet or a lifestyle if I can plan it ahead. I get myself into nutritional trouble when I allow convenience to depict what and where I eat. Predetermined meals will prevent this, thus allowing a much healthier lifestyle.
I used to go to the gym and do mon-fri working two muscle groups per day - Chest/Tris, Back/Bis, Legs/Shoulders, Abs/Calves, Forearms, etc.
I would also toss in about half of an hour of cardio 3 of those days.
Eventually this would lead to a plateu.
With that said - I was given P90X as a gift, and I am hopeful that it will provide a good sense of direction. With the aid of the meal planning and nutrition guideline, and my own will and good discipline, I should be able to whip myself into shape pretty quick.
It should arrive in about 5 days - and I hope to show some before and after pics along the way.
Is anyone else still on this program? I saw a few people post about it almost a year ago, but not much since. A search didn't yield many results.
Is anyone else about to start?
Their forum is great for motivation/comparisons...but I figured I'd see if anyone here was about to dive in.
