The Calm after the Storm

When I started working out, it was because of that feeling I got after I went up the stairs to head to bed. I would have to wait a few seconds for my heartbeat to slow down before I could get comfortable enough to sleep. I was only 30 pounds heavier, but it was difficult. To top it off, I was out of shape. About a month after I began working out, my brother told me about P90-X and I fell in love with it. It's changed my life physically/mentally/emotionally. I tell everyone I talk to about it, especially when they ask me about my arms/stomach. It's almost as if I'm trying to spread a religion. I believe in it so heavily that my day is surrounded by it.

"When can I fit time in today to do P-90X? Maybe I should do it before work today. I have a busy night."

It's almost unbelievable how much of a change I've seen all over. I hardly have any body/headaches anymore since I started. My energy is off the charts. I get to eat at least 7 times day and I'm not worried about gaining weight.

With all that being said... why wouldn't we want to share all of this with our friends, family and even complete strangers? This isn't a fad workout and diet plan. This is a life-altering workout regimen that not only boasts results... it delivers quickly! If you're ready to dedicate your life to health and well-being, drop your soda, take McDonald's off your maps and pick up some free-weights and a pull-up bar. You'll have a very hard time looking back at your old self without thinking, "why did I do that to myself?" and "never again."

Make the change people. Our children aren't going to take care of themselves, so we have to take responsibility into our own hands and become stronger. Not just for ourselves, but for our friends and family.

I hope I've made my point. I'll be back for more.

Love you guys,
Manoli


P.S. Many apologies for the "myspace" photo. I didn't feel like getting out the studio lights and the Canon 40D for this one. Maybe next time. ;)

okstupid

Alright internet friends. Who want to go out on a date? Apparently nobody! Now, I'm not complaining, but I find it pretty amusing the one girl on okcupid.com that had any interest in me described herself as "angry, boring and strange." Hmmm... Well, if we were to check out Manny's statistics over the last 3 years, that would accurately depict his choice in the opposite sex.

Needless to say, I steered clear of that one. I tried my hardest to contact girls that seemed to be normal and that lived within my 25-mile radius. None replied, so that leads me to believe that I'm a strange one or they just don't like guys under 5'10". Maybe I'll get some stilts and workout just my upper-body so they can't see the disproportion.

So if anybody has had luck on this or any other dating websites, please give me a tip or two. Thanks!

Manoli
