Day 4: Rest Day

Yeah, a day off. A little early – but a smart play.  Today is my long day of the week. In at 10:30am, out at 11:45pm so I figured it would be wise to chill and take my one free day-off today. I needed it too. Those first three days have already made my body scream. But I’m good to go through the weekend. Back at it tomorrow morning with some Yoga X! It’s good for the body. (:...

Day 3: Shoulders & Arms

Today was a rough one. It was hard to get started. I had to get up earlier than normal because of several things going on this morning. So rolling out of bed was a chore itself, let alone jumping into Shoulders & Arms. I did my best, but it was not impressive. I made it through and did Ab Ripper. But almost fell asleep during the workout. That tells me the diet plan is starting in. The lack...

Day 2: Plyometrics

I awoke to that beautiful feeling of torn stomach muscle tissue. Ha, I’m just being dramatic. However, YES, I was sore this morning. If you’ve never done Ab Ripper X – there’s a reason they call it that. Ab Ripper is done 3 times per week AFTER your main exercise. It hurts, it’s hard. At least in the beginning. I went ‘easy does it’ yesterday only...

Day 1: Chest and Back

Annnd, we’re off to the races. First day of P90x is in the box. It was a very easy, low-impact, low-key day. More of a ‘time to wake up’ kind of day for my muscles (or what’s left of them). My office has been converted into my ‘workout haven’. So in between sets I took a few pics of what I’m working with. On top of the first day of working out, I’ve...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. 2012 is here. Just got back from a great getaway to Sanibel Island. The weather was perfect, it was a low-key New Year’s party at the hotel. I’m glad we didn’t try to plan anything big. It felt good to chill out. It was still a late night (which is why I’m already in bed), but it also is a big day tomorrow. First day of P90x and my new way of life! I know...

T-minus 2 days: My P90X plan for 2012

Enjoying a getaway to Sanibel Island in southern Florida. I’m busy eating what I want, laying around, and staying up late. Trying to enjoy every last second of this getaway before reality sets in! New Years Eve tonight. Wishing everyone a great 2012!

T-minus 3 days: My P90X plan for 2012

Okay.  It’s for real now. I better get used to this daily blogging thing to help me stay focused on my ridiculous plan to tackle P90X the next 90 days. Today was jam packed. But all days are going to be. Conference calls, website work, TV News, dinner with the gal. But I did squeak in a modified version of Kenpo X prior to work. Got to keep the blood moving. Feeling much better than I did a...

WFTV while the state wakes up

I had to share this picture from one of our talented photographers Phillip Mangels. He was out shooting early morning house fire with our reporter Steve Barrett and snapped this pic. He is quite the photographer on the side so he knows how to make it look great. But this gives you an idea of what is happening when most of us are sleeping in Central Florida. They’re busting their butts to...

T-minus 4 days: My P90X plan for 2012

Let the cliches start rolling. I can’t believe I’m doing this. I have failed so miserably, so many times at this workout program that I’m stubborn to be back. But maybe that is why one day I’ll succeed. After the onslaught of laziness, alcohol, food, naps and sedentary lifestyle all thanks to a end of the year wedding, early Christmas vacation to Minnesota, another...

Hello, Mr. Bear

I’m home on my Christmas break. It’s a much different story than last year when I flew into Hell’s wrath of a snowstorm and was diverted (against my will) to Grand Forks, North Dakota for the first night of my trip. You can read the comedy of errors here. This trip has been much more pleasant. My parents spend a lot of their time at our cabin a few hours north of the Twin Cities...
