Save some money, cut your grass

June 12th, 2009 at 07:57 pm

Boy, its been a long time since I wrote anything here. Alot of crud going on in my life, and that sort of leads to the title of this. While I was out cutting the grass tonight, I did what I always do, sorta get into a mental zone, let my body go on autopilot to do the work, and let my mind go through a little self analysis. OK, maybe a lot. Anyway, as I was going over the mess of my life at the moment, I realized this is probably much more productive than going to a psychiatrist (Actually I am very much against going to one, unless you have severe problems ... but that is MHO). And of course the cost is $0 too.

My alternate title for this was going to be "I'm living in a Billy Joel song". Basically the song is (and I'm guessing the title here) "Only the good die young". Everyone "good" in my life in the past year has either died or gotten very ill. Not looking for sympathy, but really, for so many years I had so little of this go on close to me, and then wow, WTF happened? OK, I gotta stop going down this road.

One last thing - not to be an advertisement, but if you are looking at workout routines, and see the one called P90X, OMG is that insane. I thought I was in, well... maybe passable shape. After doing this for a few days I feel like a wimp. If you're not in so-so shape don't try it - I think they have an easier (and older) version called P90. Thats good to get started - I was using that as I found it at a yard sale last year. If I can keep up with this P90X, even if I don't do it as hard as they make it out, I have to get in better shape. I'm hoping I will be able to walk ok tomorrow morning. Aghhhhhh!

    That is funny! You are the third person in two days to mention the P90X. I had never heard of it before!

    Here is a link to their web site: http://www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_programs/p90x.do

    I will say, I bought mine from an Amazon associated seller for a little less than 2/3 of their price ($70 $7 shipping versus their $120 $20 shipping)

    And I have been looking for weights and strength bands at yard sales. So far I have gotten 15lb set for $5, a 5lb set for $1, and a new set of strength bands for $3. I didn't spot anything today unfortunately.

    Also I don't see any link for the old P90 exercises, but I was able to google it: http://www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_programs/power90.do

    I see this set is on ebay for a lot less than their web site. I think those are better for people who aren't in super shape and want to start, but thats just my opinion.
