2 Down 88 To Go

I was thinking last night when I went to sleep that it has been a very long time since I accomplished a goal that I set for myself. In fact, I couldn't remember the last time I accomplished a goal. I mean, I passed the bar, but I put that in different category because it was a necessity for me to practice law. So, I think now is the time. I am going to do this work out like it's a necessity, and I'm going to work on my diet until I accomplish my goal.

Day 2 was a cardio day and it involves a lot of calisthenics, high knees, jumping jacks, etc. It was hard, and it will get harder. It all depends on how much you push yourself. Right now I'm taking it at a slower pace, but by Friday I will be pushing myself hard. I'm so excited!

17 days until football season! Roll Tide!

Day 1 Power 90

Not to terribly bad, but I can tell I'm going to struggle down the line. The first couple of days the point of the program is to learn form and technique before really getting down and dirty with the moves. I'm nervous, not going to lie, but I'm excited about starting something new for my 28th (almost) year.

I have recorded my stats on an Excel Worksheet that I purchased that coordinates with the program so it will tell me how many inches I lose, how much weight I lose and the change in my body make up. I waited until after work to work out tonight, but soon (maybe tomorrow) I'm going to start working out in the morning. Wish me luck!

Roll Tide...



I'm not sure if I'll ever post this to the outside world, so for now I'll write for myself.

Today is the day I begin to document my experiences (if you can call them that) in Mobile, Alabama... aka - Mobtown, aka - The Dirty South.

I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of my move to the deep south and I figure my life should get interesting at any moment. So, of course, I had to start a blog to keep an accounting.

I'm also coming up on my 28th birthday.... AHHHHHH!!! I cannot believe I am ALMOST 28 years old. I had a plan for my life and I think it is safe to say that absolutely NOTHING I planned came to fruition. I'm supposed to be married with 2 kids and one on the way. Instead, I'm single, no kids and a first year associate in Mobile, Alabama. Ultimately, I know the Lord has a better plan for me than I could ever plan for myself, but to be honest, I am constantly having to remind myself to be patient. Easier said than done as they say.

My goal for this blog is to make me accountable to my quiet times and workouts - also easier said than done. Today was my first Power 90. Let's just say I have a long way to go, but I'll keep you (me) informed.
