Exercise Observation

As the exercise DVD plays a countdown clock is shown at the bottom of the screen. Look at it and you see how much more grunting remains.

We’re three weeks into our exercise program now. You’re supposed to train six days a week. We’re closer to five. That’s OK, right?

There are two programs we alternate. One is sweatier than the other. Today was sweaty day!

Three weeks in and it still beats the crap out of me! Part of that is because I’ve ramped up my involvement. I can do more now. I try and push myself.

I see some difference in my arms and shoulders. They are still the arms and shoulders of a wimp, just not quite as wimpy.

The rest of my body looks like it’s been eating ice cream while I’ve been working out.

I looked there today I looked there often today. The third or fourth time I thought to myself I’ve been here before. Now I have it figured out.

Watching the clock during the exercise program is exactly what I did in elementary school! During the unpleasant forced march that was school I constantly stared at that darned clock. It pre-digitally clicked off once per minute. I desperately wanted it to move faster.

Now too!

  3. I remember watching that pre-digital clock in school too. Click,click went the minutes. I used to think it would never reach three o’clock.

  4. Tony Horton looks sooo young in that video.
    I’ve been using P90X and I recommmend it even for folks like DorisC (you can modify all moves)!
