My First 90-Day Challenge – P90X!

My first introduction to Beachbody was P90X.  Have you seen the informercial?   I think almost everyone has at some point because it’s been around forever.  I had seen it so many times I could tell you which workout or success story was coming up next.

I REALLY wanted to try it but I didn’t know if I could actually do it because I was so out of shape.  I’d had weight issues my whole life due to lack of discipline, mostly.  My eating habits were terrible.  Like most people I ate a lot of fast food, sweets, treats, and junk food in general.  Sound familiar?  When I was younger I could lose the weight just by exercising – walking, swimming, some weight training thanks to my DP Gympac.  It was a gift from my husband the first year of our marriage.  (We still have it 26 years later.  I still haven’t figured out why.)

I needed an effective fitness program that included a nutrition plan.  Exercise alone was not enough these days.  I needed to start putting the right foods into my body too.

Anyway, I knew I needed to get healthy and Tony Horton finally convinced me to get off the couch!  So I finally ordered it.

I had to modify a lot at first.  A lot.  Over time, however, I found that I modified less and less because I was getting stronger.  I could even do a few push ups the regular way – off my knees!  I still couldn’t do pull-ups but I found that the resistance band was an excelleafterP90Xpicnt substitution for a pull-up bar.  Much to my surprise, plyometrics became one of my favorite workouts.  I was hooked!

I finished the 90 day challenge, proud and in the best shape of my life.  I had lost about 10 lbs, lost many inches all over my body, and gained muscle.  P90X took me from a size 12 to a size 6!  I was so shocked that I could be that fit.  Shocked and very, very happy.  Thank you Tony Horton!  And thank you Beachbody!
