My Lovely and very opinioned wife Pat had been encouraging me to stop eating donuts and to exercise more over the past year. When my birthday arrived on Sept 10, I asked for that P90X program I hear so much about. Our 3 sons have tried it and say it's a great program.
So I got my pull-up bar and 2 sets of light dumb bells (15 and 20 lbs). I read the manual for a couple weeks to make sure I understood what I was doing. Jumping Jack you say, what is this jumping jack? Push up? I forgot what that was.
After some avoidance I jumped in and I have to admit, it's a great program. A lot of variety and you don't have to diet or anything. I've been told there's a diet manual in the program but I can't find it. No idea where it is, isn't that a shame? Pat insists there is no provision for chocolate chip muffins for breakfast.
But I can't find any documentation specifically banning chocolate chip muffins. Basically, they are the same as blueberry muffins which have blueberries and fight cancer. Except the blueberries are replaced by chocolate chips. Same thing.
The name P90X means a 90 minute workout that's eXtreme. The Lovely Pat has begun the refer to my program as PX90 which insinuates one eats at the cafeteria (the PX in military terms) for 90 minutes eXtremely well.
Pat insists it's a mistake, a gaffe, a faux pas. Hmmmm....
My oldest son Jim has noticed that on TV, when fat people move, there's always tuba music. BWaaaaa Bwwwwaaaa Bwaaabbwwaa Bwwaaaa. I listen carefully. I don't hear any tubas. That's good.
Tony Horton says I'll get all goooey if I don't exercise and eat right so it seems I'm outnumbered. So, I say: Load another P90X CD and don't forget to cook the chicken in olive oil. And I'll limit my CC muffins to one a day. The Tip of the day? Bring It!
