Alright! Alright!! It's been long enough, I've had time to let my shoulder get fixed. I've had time to have my second son. (OH YEAH!) During the break, my wife and I had our second son named Zachary! Born Feb. 2nd. He's GORGEOUS!!!! And I've had time to pack on ~5 lbs of body weight in the mean time. Not bad. Going from 215lbs to 185lbs during round 1, and now I'm up to 190lbs for being 5 months out.

However, during the past month, I've convinced my wife to join in on the fun and action. So occasionally during my daily entries, my wife will give her insight on what it feels like going through the program from a "women's'" perspective. I'm just excited that I got my wife to do it along with me!!!. Plus, I think it will be a great addition to everyone out there following along and wonder if a husband and wife can do the same program AT THE SAME TIME! I'll be using the weights and she's going to be using the band that came along with P90X. When it's time for pull ups, she'll use the good 'ol "Band in the door jam" method.

HERE'S THE KICKER!! This round is going to be taken to the next level! THAT'S RIGHT!!

During this past month of gearing up to do Round 2 of P90X, I've been contemplating whether to do Round 2 of P90X, which I've done, or try my luck going to the next level. Well, long story short. VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE!! So P90X+ it is... Though I could have purchased my products through, I decided to go to and purchase from them. My stuff was ordered Monday and was at my doorstep by Thursday! Super Fast!

So I'm going to be going through the NEXT Level of P90X. With my wife, hopefully, right next time me, I'm going to write just like I did in Round 1. I'll be adding all the good stuff, like weekly photos, new food recipes I find, my daily weights/rep spreadsheet.

I'm also working on a P90X+ workout spreadsheet, like the one I have for P90X, but changed to either include the +, or just be specifically P90X+.

Well, It's time for my first fit test before I unleash the beast tomorrow!!!


Until then, keep pushing play!

Back by popular demand: ROUND 2!!!!!!!!

I've taken enough time off to give my shoulder an ample amount of Physical Therapy. Which, in turn, should provide me with the needed shoulder stability to bring it "X-like" in Round 2 that I am going to start with tomorrow.
Hey Adam,

I am going to start another Round of 90 Days. Being that I've been out since Mid. December with that shoulder injury at Day 78, it didn't make sense to finish out a program that is designed to be completed from start to finish. (or at least that what I think).

Between rounds, I didn't stick to the rigid meal plan provided by P90X, but I did stick to the "guidelines" of the amount/type/serving size of food I ate. I did bring along some of my favorite dishes too. Taking what I've learned from the nutritional program to make my own meals.

Here are a few things that are going to stay the same, and some that are going to change:

*I am still going to be posting weekly photos of my progress. I truly believe this was my #1 motivator making me stick to the program.

*This round since I've been through the meal plan once and know how much I should eat, what kinds of foods, etc.. I am adding/deleting some meals and replacing them with others. I am going to try my hand at the meal plan provided by

* I am going to also try my hand at making my own protein bars!! This should be interesting since there are hundreds of recipies (baked & non-baked) for protein bars. I'll post which recipie I use and my thoughts about each.

* Obviously with my shoulder injury, I am taking out one or two of the tricep excercies where my shoulders flare out making my rotator cuff open.

That's about it... Just alittle here and there, but over all, it's still P90X!!!!

I'm actually excited about working out again and trying to beat my results from round 1.

I'll be back tomorrow pushing play once again!
