I have a confession: I’m getting a wee bit bored with P90X.  It’s the monotony that’s getting to me.  The workouts vary, so it’s not that, I think it’s the monotony of the genre that’s doing me in.  I love exercise videos, but I also love classes, and the gym, and the great outdoors, and as much as I try to incorporate all of those into my weekly fitness schedule, I just don’t always have the time to commit three-hours a day to workout  (which is generally what happens when I try to double up on P90X and real life interests). Spending six days a week working out at home is getting kind of old.  I miss people!

I’m a little torn over what to do, I hate giving up on a project, but I can see my interest waning.  I’m thinking that I might split up the weeks, do the workouts in P90X that I find most valuable, and sub out the ones I’m not into for things that I prefer in the same genre.

Does this make me a quitter?

I really love the strength training DVDs; the yoga and aerobics ones really aren’t my cup of tea.  Since the weeks are split up between 3-days strength, and 3-days cardio, I figure I can go halvsies on my P90X workouts, and actual things I like, like running, spinning, real yoga  for my cardio days.

I’m a quitter, aren’t I?

I don’t know why I’m so self-conscious about this.  I’m pretty sure last time I checked I hadn’t given up my powers of self-will to Tony Horton. I feel bad that I made a commitment to myself, but I see myself quickly falling off the bandwagon.  I’m half way through the program and more and more I have to force myself to press play.  Better to do the best I can than do nothing at all, right?
