I'm Loving It

I am loving P90X so far, yes it is hard and yes I feel like I have been run over by a steam roller afterwards but I am really enjoying the program! I was a bit nervous to start out, I knew it was going to be hard but it is done in such an encouraging and smart way. I love to progress bar, so you know how much time you have left in the over all workout and I love that it has a countdown on the screen for each individual move! There have been times I want to quit on a particularly difficult part but being able to see I only have to do it for 10 more seconds, makes it so I can hold out and push just a little farther. I love how each dvd has proper stretching, cool down and has breaks and the instructor is motivating but realistic (so in the words of Annie) basically the 'Anti-Jillian' (I kid...sort of...) I have only been doing the program for a week but I look forward to it each evening, I hope that my level of excitement continues!

Awesome Amber! I am literally 3 days away from finishing week 13 and the total p90x program ! Jon and I both did it! WHen I get some spare time I plan on doing a wrap up on my blog about the pros and cons and tips etc I learned from it and now that I know you are doing it I will try to write about it sooner than later so you can have a few of my tips! But yes, it was great! I did it almost every day according to schedule minus the kenpo which I did not like, but more later! ROck it girl! Why won't David do it with you?

I would love to read your wrap up and tips, I'll keep an eye out for it! Dave has a rib that dislocates, so her can't do push ups or plank moves, and there is a lot of that in the P90X. He already does pull ups but is willing to do some workouts every now and then if it fits his criteria :) Though he is not a fan of how long the P90X dvd's are!

About Annie

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
