Round 2 / Day 1: P90X Chest & Back + Ab Ripper X

Here we go again.

After my first Tony-free week in months, I was actually looking forward to jumping back into P90X. But that was before I realized the challenges awaiting me this morning. For starters, my body -- not yet adjusted back to being in California -- wasn't happy about being dragged out of bed at 3:45 a.m. Hawaii time. Also, after having spent a week in humid, 80 degree weather, the crisp chill of my garage made me wince. And when I finally popped in the Chest & Back DVD and started exercising, I realized that I couldn't quite crank out the same number of reps that I did just a few weeks before. Ab Ripper X was no walk in the park, either. I still managed to do respectably, but all in all, this morning's workout was a bit frustrating and humbling.

And I anticipate an even more humbling experience tomorrow, when I get my ass handed to me by Shaun T. I still shudder when I think about the Insanity fit test. Yeesh.
