Sorry for the absence!

I know it's been a really long time since I last posted and I apologize. I am still working away at P90X, but I've had to take a couple of breaks.

After my last post, I believe I did about 3-4 more days of P90X, with a few soccer games thrown into the mix. With about 2 weeks left before the end of the program, I decided that I needed to take a three day break. I'm still having major sciatic nerve problems and the pain is pretty much even hurts when I cough. I thought that maybe it would get a little bit better if I took a few days off. At about day 2 of my mini break, I got sick with a cold and ended up taking almost 3 days off work because of it. So for about a week, I did no exercise whatsoever.

After taking the week off, I started back into P90X (this was last Monday) and had a soccer game early last week as well. Then on Thursday, we left for a trip to Ontario for four days. I did a bunch of walking during the trip, but no other exercise. And I ate pretty crappy too! I got back from my trip late last night.

So that brings us up to date. I've got soccer tonight and Wednesday and I'll be continuing on in week 12 of P90X. My sciatic nerve issue is no better after about a month of pain and the week off didn't do me any good at all. I have a physio appt. next week so I'm hoping she can perfom miracles! It's kind of painful to run during soccer, but I'm making sure I put heat on it before my games and stretch it really well. Plus I take 2 extra strength ibuprofen before each game. Most of the moves in P90X don't bother me, but there are a couple that I usually end up skipping over.

So that's where I've been. I know I've been really slack lately, but I'm going to try and be better about posting for my last 2 weeks. I'm anxious to finish, but it will take a little longer than 2 weeks since I play soccer about twice a week. I haven't taken any measurements in quite a while, so I'm hoping I see some more change since day 60! I'll post again soon!
