The "P90X" Adventure

It begins...
Every day for the past two months--there it is...PLASTERED all over TV, magazines, Internet pop-ups-- "P90X." I desperately tried (with no success) to ignore the ads of this insanely challenging, body-shaping, life-changing, 90-day-money-back-guarantee-ing workout REVOLUTION. I just couldn't look away. I was mesmerized by the commitment level each of the featured participants displayed and the results they achieved. There was only one thing left to do...sit back and wait for David to order it. And he did. Dag-nabbit! Two weeks ago he signed the agreement (in was only appropriate) and... it was delivered (12lbs, 13 oz) on Saturday!!

After watching David complete Day 1 and Day 2, I quickly realized this program inarguably brings "NO PAIN, NO GAIN" to a whole new level. (side note- Day 2 is "plyometrics"...but David calls it "pyro-technics." Regarding Andrew in my previous "I love it when" blog...the apple clearly doesn't fall far from the tree) So, here we are on Day 3 and I'm jumping in. I know...I cheated a little and I'm not proud of that. But the majority of the time we get motivated and we start something and by Day 3 we I've got better odds now, according to my calculations.

So, here's where I would start tracking my progress and list my beginning weight and measurements, before pictures, etc. But nahhhh. I'll skip that like I did Day 1 and Day 2. I know what I look like now (before) so I will be able to tell what's different in the after. David sweetly urged me to go through with the before picture. And I lovingly replied, "It's not an option, babe. Let's not talk about this anymore." (Speaking the truth in love is something we were taught by our pretty amazing marriage counselors. Don't judge.)

Well, here we go...I'll post results (in WORDS, not PICTURES) and I am looking forward to sharing!
