no more p90x for me! :D

TRX

you heard that right. a month into the program and i'm throwing in the towel. i've tried this program once or twice before and i did the same thing. now, i remembered why. it's because i just can't seem to watch another minute of the same dvds over and over again, week after week. sure, you say week 5 and forward have different dvds/workouts, but yeah... i don't know if i can do that for another 8 more weeks. it's just too much at the moment. i'm mentally not strong enough for this program or any program for that matter. must be because i need more excitement in my workouts. who knows?!

now, what i can tell you is, although i haven't been doing the program and have given up on it, i haven't stopped working out. i still run about 3 times a week and do strength exercises at least once a week! okay, i know i should be better and do more, but at the moment, that's not too bad. i am still pretty active, just not as active as i would like to be. ummmm.. how's my eating? well, okay, sure, i'll give it to you. it can definitely be better. i have to say, i did lose some weight before the big turkey day just to gain it all back. i know christmas is fast approaching so i'm really hoping at least i will lose a few and hopefully get through christmas with it back or steady without any weight gain! ;) hahaha, i know, wishful thinking, but hey... one must try!?!!

oh, since there's no more p90x for me, i've taken on TRX. yeah, the suspension training stuff used by the navy seals. ah huh, that's the workout. so far we (my awesome hubby) and i have gone to two morning classes and so far, it's kicked our butts -- real good, in a good way. i feel like i've really worked out after each class.

okay, that's enough for now. hopefully the next time i give an update i have more good news in the food/eating/diet department. that's because i have no doubt that i will keep on exercising/working out! :)

stay tune!
