I can just about guarantee this'll be better than whatever you've been doing.
I mean, well I've been pretty sedentary, mostly, for the past several years, but I used to work out regularly, and pretty hard, I thought
! For me, p90x is beyond any workout I've ever heard of.
We're seeing good results so far, even though I sure got pretty fat after going gluten free
-- now I'm also trying to not eat so much anymore, which is getting easier...I mean, to just eat like a normal person instead of the chronic, pigging out I'd gotten into before. That's the reason I didn't take any before pictures...I'd never been that fat since I was pregnant...scary! Anyway, between eating more like a normal person, and doing the p90x, things are changing pretty fast.
One of my friends who came up to visit us over the weekend was subjected to my chronic whining about p90x (groundhogs just never shut up
), thought we were looking pretty good, and then decided to order one too...then she e-mailed us and said she had fears of not being able to keep up...groundhubby answered the e-mail...I told him just to tell her if she got the DVDs and actually could
keep up, we'd be scared of her!!!
The thing is tough. Groundhubby and I were talking last night about how it's pretty amazing when you see some of this stuff, and you think, "Well, I'll NEVER be able to do that particular exercise, or that many reps, that much weight..." whatever...and then, by the 3rd week of that phase, you see yourself improving a lot more than you thought possible...and you realize that we just don't push ourselves hard enough...Tony is a good coach...he pushes...you get really fed up and exhausted and feel like there's just no way you can keep up...and then you see results, get motivated to try even harder next time around, Tony encourages you in his own funny/odd ways...and it all just gets better and better from there.
Congratulations!!!!!! You'll be BRINGING IT with us, very soon.
I do plan to take AFTER pictures...not sure my weight will be pre-deglutening level by then...but as long as I'm seeing some nice muscles growing...it'll be okay...I guess I can stand it!!!!
Let us know when your DVDs arrive!
