starting p90x on monday

join me on my weight loss adventure with p90x

so i've decided that i really need to do something, anything! because whatever i have been doing, i haven't put a whole lot of effort into it. with this said, i've decided that i really should give the whole losing those last several pounds (gained from baby #2) another try. yeah, i stopped running at lunch time because there were a few other factors that came in that i became sort of sensitive to. i won't go into specifics, but yeah, something like that. i guess if i wanted to, i can substitute walking during lunch instead of running. that wouldn't be so bad. of course, i'd rather run, but i'm not going to... unless i have no other available times to run.

anyway, i'm starting p90x on monday. i've given this fitness program a try about 2 years ago but only made it to week 4. i have never made it beyond that point and my eating habits were good, but never that great. i felt good during the whole four weeks, but somehow i just fell off the wagon. this time around i'm hoping it's different.

my ex-sis-in-law and i are doing it together. she got really bored with her jillian michaels dvds and decided she wanted to do something else. i'm hoping that with her doing this with me (although she's about 180 miles away), that we'll still be able to be successful. we're hoping to check in with each other every week or every other day or day and see how we're both doing. hopefully by our check-ins and talking each other through our triumphs and struggles that we'll be able to stick it out. a few obstacles or the biggest one i say is the upcoming holiday season. it's going to be tough getting through thanksgiving, christmas and new years. well, new years isn't a big deal for me, but i'm pretty sure she may be partying it up on nye. ;) whatever it is, the big challenge will come in a few weeks time. let's hope we both make it out okay. of course, i wouldn't mind if during the whole 90 days we only had like a few cheat days. there's nothing wrong with indulging a little bit once in a good while if you've been good. plus, i strongly believe in throwing your body off sometimes and that's a good thing. you can't always go at the same speed and expect changes. eventually your body gets used to it so a little mixing up may be a good thing.

i cannot wait to start and get serious about getting my pre-baby #2 weight and body back again. like one of my motto to myself: a year from now you'll wish you had started today. i hope to be here one year from now again and said i've done it. i've really stuck it out and did it. so stay tune and let's go through this journey together. i'll be back sometime later this weekend to post all my before measurements, plans and how we're really going to do this. it's going to be fun. stay tune! :)
