What We've Been Up To...

A little over a month ago, Brian mentioned that we order the P90X workout DVD's to do together. It basically went in one ear and out the other. Then the next Sunday I was home with a sick baby and happened to see a P90X infomercial. Hmmmmm. One of Brian's co-workers had the DVD set and offered to let us use them to see if we liked it before we bought it.

Little did I know what I was doing!! So it's been a busy month - with doing these DVD's AND trying to run and train for the 10K at the end of March. But I will have to say that I am enjoying it! Brian and I used to work out together a lot before we had kids. Now we're not usually doing the workouts at the same time each day but it's neat to know we're doing the same workouts and it pushes me to keep going even when it's hard.

The first month was good. It helped me lose a few baby pounds that I have been trying to lose - hopefully the second month will do a little more. (It sure is much easier, and more fun, to put on the 'baby' weight then to take it off)!

Anyway, I'll try to write more about the workouts and experience as we go along!

Good for you!!! P90X scares me.

P90X is like training to go into the fiercest of wars. It is brutal and I'm proud of you for making it past day two--you have inspired me to get mine back out. But, of course, I'll have to get the wheelchair out too because I couldn't walk after day 1 for a week without wincing in pain.
love to you,

My husband just brought this home from work last week and wants to do it! I'll tell him you guys are doing it, hopefully it will inspire him. Me, I'm just riding my bike a few minutes a day and doing sit ups. Then today my arms were so sore. I couldn't figure out why until I remembered that I had shoveled horse poop out of the barn for 45 minutes yesterday. Yikes, it was a good work-out!
