Matt and I started P90X in June.
For those of you who don't know, P90X is a 90 diet and exercise program that utilizes a series of home work outs to pump you up!
Check out the before/afters of these "ordinary" folks!
Matt and I are in our second week of phase two and we are loving it. Don't get me wrong, it totally sucks. We don't get to eat cheesecake or ice cream and our abs are burning and sometimes my arms are so tired I can barely wash my hair, but we love it.
I hope I have the courage to post my "before" and "after" photos when it's all said and done but no promises :)
Even without the photos, I can tell you that by the end of phase 1 (28 days), I was down 7.5 pounds, down 2.5% body fat, down 1.5 inches around my chest, down 2 inches at my waist, and down 1.25 inches around my hips. Even though the measurements were down, down, down, I was not. In fact, I feel amazing!
Even though I don't necessarily look forward to Tony Horton's constant babbling or the intensity of the program (7 days a week, 1-2 hours a day), I do love that it is a different routine every night (so I don't get bored and neither do my muscles). And I love, love, love the way I'm lookin' and feelin'.
Inevitably someone is going to e-mail me asking if we are doing the diet portion. Yes, we are because if I'm gonna bring it, I'm not gonna bring it half way!
If you are ready to bring it, and I mean, REALLY WORK and bring it, I highly recommend this program!
(P.S. I suggest getting weights. If you buy BeachBody bands you'll be okay but Target brand bands don't have enough tension and you won't get the results you want).
