I could not wait until this letter came up in the alphabet!
Yay! The day has arrived!
P is for: P90x!!
In case you haven't heard (how could you not? I talk about it constantly) I am now a P90x grad and I actually have restarted the program from the beginning. That's right.
I'm BRINGING IT (a P90x term). :-)
Do you even know what P90x is?
Have you seen the infomercials on it on Saturday mornings? I'm telling you P90x is one EXTREME home workout regimen. But oh so good!
Believe me, I am not one of those hardcore workout people. In fact, I am--er, was a bit of a cream puff. (a cute cream puff, though) Before p90x, I occasionally did spin classes. I ran (the most I've ran ever is about 4 miles) and I sometimes went to the gym and took aerobic classes. Just cardio stuff a few times a week. But I was interested in more...body transformation. So when the hubby ordered the DVDs for himself, I knew I was going to be talked into doing it too.
But I'm so glad!
I won't lie. The first week I was sore and in bed by 7 pm every night. LOL (Sad, but true) But then as the weeks progressed it did get easier (sort of...) and I found I could do more and more of the workout. It became (and still is) a bit of love hate relationship.
I hate it, but I love it. (Tony Horton says this himself in the Ab Ripper workout)
The whole idea of the workout is "muscle confusion". So one day, you're working the arms until they fall off with push-ups and chin-ups and the next day you're working the legs with plyometric jumping exercises, and so forth. There's a kempo kick-boxing day and even a yoga day (THE hardest by far and longest clocking in at 90 minutes). But most of the workout tapes are about an hour. You do need a chin-up bar and free weights, which we did invest in, but we figured it's for health reasons so why not?
I've honestly never looked better, which is why I decided to repeat the 13 week workout. I am this close--ll--to buying a bikini this summer. Yes, you read right.
Whether I have the nerve to wear it is another story. LOL
Have you heard of p90x? Do you know anyone who has done it? And more importantly, are you swimsuit ready?
