P90X Update

So, we’re half way through P90X, and while we love it and what it’s doing for us, there are some other life issues that are getting in the way, and we’re going to have to put P90X on hold, I think, probably until February.

I’m really torn about it, because I don’t want to quit, but the workouts are long, and we just can’t fit them in at a reasonable hour and still get enough sleep.

“But,” I can hear you say, “There’s lots of time in the day!”

You’d be right, and all of that time right now is taken up by a few things. We get up at 5:45 in the morning, so that Wendy can get to work on time, and then I work until 3:30, at which time I pick up the kids from school and watch them until Wendy gets home from work which would normally be about 5:00.

Except for the issues she’s dealing with because of the four idiots over the past year that couldn’t drive their way out of a box and totalled two of her cars. Right now, she’s seeing at least one therapist of some sort each day, which means she typically doesn’t get home until six or six thirty, then it’s time for dinner, which leads us to 8:00 or so, and then getting the kids to bed and making sure they get some time with her, and she doesn’t get a break until 9:00 at night. To then have to exercise for an hour and fifteen minutes or more means we’re often working out until 11:00 at night, and we can never get a solid nights sleep except for two days a week.

So, until she can dump a few of these physical/massage/accupuncture therapy treatments, we’re going to go back to doing workouts that are more in the 30-45 minute range so we can get a good nights sleep, which, in many ways, is just as important as the exercise.
