On Monday I began my fifth round of P90X. For anyone who is unfamiliar with P90X, it is an extreme weight lifting and cardio program that is designed to shed body fat. I have gotten great results in the past, but have not properly followed the diet. They say that to shed body fat, it is 80% diet and 20% work and I have found that to be true in previous rounds.
P90X is comprised of 12 different videos and is set up so that you do specific videos on each day throughout the week. So far my week has looked like this:
Monday-Chest and Back/Ab Ripper
Wednesday-Shoulders and Arms/Ab Ripper
Today I will be completing Legs and Back with Ab Ripper again.
Also, in past rounds, I have used supplements, but not for the full 90 days. I have decided to begin taking my supplements from day 1 this round, and after 4 days I have already begun to see results. I will post pictures of my results on Day 30, 60, and 90.

This is the most recent book that I have read and found it to be very eye-opening. Rarely do people throughout the world really have the opportunity to see first hand the lifestyle of the youth in western Africa. Beah, throughout the entire book, offers first hand accounts of life as a civilian and eventually as a child soldier in the battlefront. He is extremely lucky to have survived many of the situations that he encountered and his ability to share details of his life is remarkable.
I feel that everyone, at some point, should read this book as it will enable the reader to fully understand a life that we may hear about, but do not fully comprehend.
