I had a breakfast of yogurt with mango, almonds and bran cereal with black coffee this morning as I watched the sun rising and turning the whole sky pink. Just beautiful. Later on I had a couple of nectarines.

It was a drizzly and grey afternoon so I decided to do a longer workout to kill some time. I picked a P90X session as I fancied something slow and heavy (ok I admit it… I was feeling too lazy for hardcore cardio 😉 ). That’s what I love about most of the P90X workouts; they are slow and steady and designed to work you to muscle failure rather than wind you. I know that cardio is an important aspect of fitness hence why I try to get a balance of both, but I do personally prefer to lift as I prefer extreme physical endurance to feeling like I can’t breathe and my heart is about to explode 😛 . I’d forgotten just how intense it is though… my arms are DEAD.
