Yesterday my husband and I started something that I really hope we’re going to stick to for the next three months. It’s a little thing called P90X, maybe you’ve heard of it?
In a perfect world, you finish the program in 90 days, and 90 days from now will be September, which is right around the time we will move to Italy. Also in a perfect world, this program supposedly works.
Being happily married hasn’t made the weight loss easy, and I think we all know it’s going to be pretty damn hard to refuse the pasta, pizza, olive oil, and wine out there, so hopefully this will help a bit.
We’re both extremely motivated to help each other and have a plan to keep us going every day (go to bed early, wake up at the same time every day, get our work-out on, drink plenty of water throughout the day, eat healthy protein-packed and heavily veggie-influenced meals, etc.), so we’re excited.
We took our before photos and measurements, but frankly, I’m not comfortable with posting mine now. I am documenting our daily workout and how I feel after each day, so I may post that weekly. Most people I’ve talked to have seen results in a few weeks, so if that’s the case I may post some pictures in July to help keep us motivated and show our progress.
We did buy a recovery drink (powder thing) from GNC, so I’ve been drinking that after the workouts. I’ve also done some pretty intense workouts before, so I’m all about modifying moves if I can’t so something; I’d much rather be safe than sorry. Anything else we should know? Have you done P90X or another BeachBody program? We’d appreciate any motivating words, tips, or any advice you’d care to share!
