Hanging my head in shame

Remember my wonderful post about holding myself accountable? Yea, this one...
Well people, I haven't been doing such a great job on that front. :-( I didn't want to post about it, but hey, $h!+ happens, right? At least that's what I'm telling myself.
I started off great. Did (almost) everything I said I would do, go walk/jog on my lunch breaks, re-started P90X; just didn't get to attend my water aerobics class, but that was no biggie.
Let me just tell you, I got sooooooo sore from P90X that I could barely walk. I'm serious. I don't know if I was being extremely intense with it this time or if I'm just that out of shape, but I wasn't that sore the 1st time I did P90X and I know I was way more out of shape then!
Anyway, needless to say I had to lay off of P90X for the next few days, since I was damn near a paraplegic and all. I figured since I hadn't really gotten thru the first friggin' week that I'd start, yet again, after my body came back from being in shock. Well I didn't. I suck, I know.
Here's the thing, I am not a morning person! I don't think I have ever been, so for me to get up at 5am to exercise was a feat in itself. And if don't go to bed at a decent enough hour then I damn sure ain't gettin' up at 5 o'clock in tha mornin', you can forget it! I think I'm just gonna have to go back to exercising after I get off of work, the evening seems to be better even though that's the time for dinner, homework, and any other domestic thing you can think of. I'd rather stay up late than wake up early! Weird, I know.
Well the good news is that at least I'm still exercising on my lunches (although this week has been harder w/ doing some last minute shopping on my break) but doesn't power-walking at the mall count? Lol.
Just wanted to give you all an update. I promise I'll do better. :-) And if I have to I'll post *fat* pictures of myself on here as extra motivation! (AAAHHHHH....just the thought of that makes me want to run 5 miles!)

**Hey! That gives me an idea! I think I'll post my P90X 30, 60, and 90 day pictures on here so you can actually see my progress. Yep, that's what I'm gonna do!**

P.S. Look past the stretch marks!!!!! Lol.

You're still doing way better than me! Don't beat yourself up so bad. I'm a night owl too! I'd much rather stay up late than get up early. Can't wait to see your pics! No judgements from me. : )

I agree with Kristen, don't beat yourself up! P90x is insane stuff! And if you go from nothing to P90x you're going to be killing yourself! I say work yourself up slowly... work out at the gym for a few weeks or something... and increase it in intensity and THEN start P90X again. :]
