    A day late, but not a dollar short! Here it is:

    BEST- With week six completed, I am really most happy to see that I have stuck with this commitment for so long... long enough to see a substantial blog and also long enough to start seeing some changes in my body as well. My friends who looked at the 30-day pictures said they saw a difference; I didn't, but I am starting to see one now. The ab lines are coming back, and for some reason, I think the small, but present love handles have vanished... either that or my shoulders have just gotten broader. And I actually am inclined to believe it's not just wishful thinking! I look back at that blog entry that I wrote about a month ago about seeing the infomercials and wondering if I am going to get results too, and I am amazed at how oddly hopeful it seemed. I'm glad I hung in there; I think it's happening now! Beyond that, the huge amounts of encouragement and support I have been getting from my RJ buddies MagickBoy (who's doing P90X with me), Innerathlete (who, like it or not, has become something of a P90X mentor for me), and Mystic_Man (who's got the kind of body I'd like to have) -- just to name three --has just been awesome! Thanks guys... I really appreciate it.

    HARDEST - Well, having a birthday and all the attendant baked goods that came with it was not easy, but I don't think it destroyed anything I have worked for, and I don't think that my new good habits have gone to pucky because of it. I can't really explain the crash in energy that I had in the days following, but I don't think the two are linked. We all have some off-times... had 'em when I was swimming, when I was doing Tae-Kwon Do, and also when I was getting sober. They happen, and I accept it. I'm still going o give all I have physically and mentally to this, tired and wobbly or not.

    WORST - Just that mid-week crash, but like I said, we all have off-times. Even with the off times, I am still trying to push myself... the three bands I used on back day are proof of that.

    So there you are.... Week 6 and half the P90X program done!

    Congrats Adam - especially on surviving a birthday while doing P90X. I've really enjoyed reading your blog ... kind of feel like a lurker though since I've never commented on an entry icon_wink.gif

    Who knows - a few years from now we may be going to theaters to watch the screen adaption of your P90X blog ... Tony and Adam ... would like to see Meryl attempt to play Tony!

    Keep it up and keep us posted. btw - absolutely YES - I can definitely see the changes in your photos.
