Something New

As I've been reading more and more, finding out how many CF patients are healthier and feeling better through exercise, for example Ronnie Sharpe, a guy who has CF and RUNS! yes RUNS! miles a day! Along with him there are many other "CFers" who are exercising daily and are benefiting from it.

I wanted to experience this FIRST HAND, so today, I'm trying something new...well almost new.

I've had this set of workout DVD's that are supposed to get you ripped in 90 days, collecting dust(as many things workout related do) for almost a year.

They're called P90x, Power 90 Extreme, and it's packed with tons of cardio and weight lifting routines. I wanted to be the first "CFer" to try it. So starting today and for the next 90 days, I'll track my lung function, weight, as well as write down the workouts for that day.

I'll post pictures of my progress through the weeks. Today was day 1 and I started "Chest and Back"

Here is my day 1 picture

Man, I don't have to say anything! Looks like Kellee has already turned up the pressure on you. 90 days is a drop in the bucket compared to eternity...I can't wait to see the results!

Intense program, I have the DVDs laying around because I previewed the pullup and pushup one and got intimidated. Make sure you eat ALOT because the intense activity makes you realllllly hungry and tired.
