I'm Gonna Get Toned...

Last night, I caved.

I don't know what got into me.

Maybe it was P's constant nagging of how much he wanted to do P90x.

Maybe it was because I had felt fat and puffy all week long, and I was desperate to do something about this stubborn belly of mine.

I logged onto Ebay.

And I searched for P90x

I found a great deal, and I clicked buy.

Next week P90x should arrive at my doorstep, and I must say that I am pretty excited.

I know it won't be easy, but I want to do this for several reasons:
1. For myself...all my life I've just wanted to look 'good'. Not skinny...just toned. I hope that this exercise program will do it for me.
2. I want people to be encouraged to get into shape when they see my results. Being healthy is so important.
3. One of P's co-workers said that I wouldn't be able to do it. If you know me, you should know that you can't tell me that I can't do something, because I will. And I will do it over and beyond.

So, I should get this little miracle worker next week and plan on starting it the second week of April. Why the second week of April? Because the first week of April will be the week that my brother graduates Boot Camp, and I'll be distracted. I figure it will be best, when I can start with a clean plate! Don't worry, P90x isn't about losing weight to me. It's about toning up and getting healthier. Come the second week of June...I'll be rocking out my bathing suits with a whole new body! How incredibly excited am I?!

And you better bet, I'll blog my progress.

haha! I'm the same way if someone tells me I can't do something. When I was preggo and planning a natural childbirth, almost everyone told me I'd change my mind when the pain kicked in. That just made me more determined not to. I had to prove them wrong. (I did--but BARELY!) They also all told me that I wouldn't be able to stick with using cloth diapers. 7 months in, she's still in cloth diapers. Eat that skeptics!!! So yeah, if you've got that same attitude, you're good to go!!! Looking forward to reading about all your amazing results!! Good luck!!

I've heard great things about that workout!! I've just started working out again too. Must rid myself of my winter ass weight.

Melissa said...

Good luck! I have heard that it's tough... but definitely could work!

You have to take "before" and "after" shots! It will make for a great blog post.

Again... GOOD LUCK!

My Brother-In-Law is a police officer, and he just got P90X after a bunch of other officers had been using it for a while....

He said that the other officers are getting super swoll.

So, now he's tried it and he says he's sore in muscles that he never new he had! It's working though.... He loves it!

I am excited for your results! I am hankering to get into some kind of workout regimen other then the 1 hour of walking I do everyday. I need to tone myself!

Good luck, I KNOW you can do it! xoxox

I the only one who has no idea what P90X is?

Miss. Candy said...

My husband PUSHED the P90x thing and bought it. I was like fine, let's do this thing! He WATCHED the video once and ummmm we never did start the big P90! I am shocked that Tony Horton has not beat down our door! I hope that you have better luck then we did with it! I wish I could say I was heartbroken that my husband who wanted it so bad changed his mind, but after seeing the pure torture on that dvd....I was happy I can say HE was the P90X drop out and since I was just his support system I didn't have to do it on my own! lol!

Brandy said...

If you would post a video of you doing this, I would watch and let you know if I get in shape! If I don't have to put my drink down.
