My blog is seriously all over the place… scrapbooking, Marine fiancée, wedding planning, deployment, graphic design, cake decorating… and now P90X! Oh well, what can I say… I’m a girl with many interests.
And so it begins… P90X!
I first heard about P90X from my dear friend Megan and her boyfriend Chris. Meg mentioned it a few times, and then this past Valentine’s Day when Joshua and I had dinner with them… we both became more interested in it. Then I started seeing it or hearing about it everywhere… and so did Joshua! After a few of his Marine buddies told him how extremely hard it is, he and I both decided to do it together when he gets home from Afghanistan.
Well… I couldn’t wait.
Like any (a) bride-to-be, (b) military gal awaiting her military man’s homecoming, or (c) everyday American aspiring to be more healthy and more fit… I have a lot of reasons to start this program. I want to surprise Joshua with it when he comes home. They say you should already be in really good shape when you start it, because it’s just that hard… but after a little research, I read that you can definitely start it at any weight or fitness level… you just might have to do the program twice to see maximum results. Which is perfect, because I’m doing the LEAN version now before Joshua gets back, and I’ll do the CLASSIC version with him once he’s home!
So… a little intro on what it is:
- a 90-day program
- 12 DVDs to workout with at home
- 6 days a week w/ 1 day of rest
- Classic, Lean, or Doubles versions
- free weights, pull-up bar, & yoga mat needed
- each DVD is different
- there are a lot of different moves so it never gets boring
- I already feel stronger
- the workouts are relatively long
- I don’t have a lot of space to do them
- it was a lot of money to spend
