Sometimes I just don’t feel like working out

I have been working out with Tony Horton’s P90X and One-On-One DVDs for about a year now. I was, and continue to be, amazed at the differences these workouts have made in my body.

But some days I just don’t feel like working out, and today was one of those days.

I’ve learned over this past year that these “lazy” times appear for different reasons. Today’s reason was an attack of allergies that had given me a huge headache.

I was going to just do Ab Ripper X, which is a 15-minute ab workout, and some yoga, but, man, my head was splitting, so I only did the Ab Ripper X workout, and quit after that.

Do I feel as if I failed because I didn’t get a full workout in today? No. At least I did something, and that counts for a lot in my book. Now, I can’t do that every day, or then I have failed, but is taking a bit of a break for a day all that bad? Absolutely not.

Today I listened to my body, and it was telling me to only do the abs.

Tomorrow will be a different story.

FitnessFor.Us – What it’s about

I’ve decided to start this website to let people know about the experiences of me, as a regular guy, with fitness and nutrition. I’m not a gym rat. I’m not a bodybuilder. I’m not a low-fat fanatic or a primal eating devotee. I don’t always eat healthy. I drink alcohol and consume caffeine. I live my life, but still want to stay in pretty good shape and keep my body fairly healthy.

This blog will contain my thoughts, struggles, successes, and failures.

I will try to post something here on most days, because there is no point to a blog that is not updated frequently.

I started on a fitness journey a few years ago, and have had varied levels of success. I have learned a lot along the way, and I hope to pass some of that along to you. My journey is not yet complete, nor will it ever be, so I hope you’ll join me, and we can help each other reach our reasonable fitness goals.
