When we turn the calendars to March, there is always an excited feeling. Why is it so exciting to start the month of March? Well, for starters, February is over. Now we are one step closer to the season we all look forward to from the time summer ended last year: Spring. Spring is a season of change, new beginnings and fresh starts. No matter how your year started, spring can always bring you some rejuvenation. One of the most exciting things about the season is getting outside again. By the time March comes, it feels like we have been inside for a year! In Minnesota, we still have a little time to go, but at least we know the end is in sight. So what do you do with the end of winter?
Health and fitness is not something most people consider when preparing for "the end of the world as we know it." But they should. People tend to take for granted just how easy we have it. Up until the last century, most people throughout history worked from sunup to sundown in fields and gardens just so they could get enough food to do it again the next day. Nowadays, except for those living in third world countries, food isn't much of a concern for most people. In fact, most people are more worried about eating too much food! As a result, modern man has become soft, weak and very dependent on the system. If teotwawki arrives, many people won't even have the endurance necessary to keep themselves alive.
I noticed that the opposite sex pay utmost attention to their bodies, especially their legs. They go to great efforts just to tone those legs. I can't blame them though; it is such a sight when you see a woman wearing a mini skirt or short shorts with long sexy lean legs. We men can't help but imagine those long smooth legs curled around us. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being a pervert or something, I just want to show my appreciation of those toned legs. Naturally, we men have hairy and not so smooth legs; this is the reason why I must ask you to understand our fascination when we see women with long sexy legs. But enough about us men and the things we think of.

The P90X Workout and me... For those who weren't sticking with all of my similar posts about this entire health and fitness gig, allow me to summarize quickly. Right after my sweetheart came up right out about it and labeled me an out-of-shape slob towards my face (yes, it was not pleasing), along with a couple of additional alternative titles I would fairly not really discuss throughout well mannered company, I made a decision getting off my own butt and off my own sofa and dive into the P90X workout.

Introduction I have been exercising since I got into the habit when I was 35 years old. That was when I woke up and found I was overweight, and had some potential health problems. I am not a health expert, I did not get a degree in exercise nor do I have a Doctors degree, all I have is life experience. This is what I have learned from over 30 years of life experience. Past Experience When I when I started exercising I had a day job, I would exercise at a health club, and would use it diligently five to six days a week. I would get up in the morning at about 5 AM and do a thirty minute run and after work would work out at the health club for about 45 minutes.
