P90X ...what???

So Chase and I have been trying to be really good about working out together and eating right, it has been kind of hard seeing as I dont get home till about 7:30 everyday from work and the last thing I want to do is go to the gym and cook something really healthy, but these last couple weeks we have been doing ok, but we still can do a lot better. So we have been looking into the work out/diet of p90x. It actually looks awesome and you can do it all from home which means I can do it before work with out much hassle! So, as I am becoming more interested in it, a lovely lady from my ward tells me her and her husband are doing it and she loves it! so I get even more excited, but then she tells me about the diet... it is soooo much protein and no carbs the first couple weeks! Now, i love my bread so this might be hard for me. But I think it might work, so bare with us as I might rant on here about how much chocolate and chips and salsa im craving :)These people are basically what Chase and I will look like when were done :) hahah yea right!!!!

I am impressed. No bread or chocolate? I would die. Can you at least have diet coke?

Todd and I did P90X last fall when I had to lose the baby weight. I thought the diet part was actually really good. We were never hungry it just took a lot of extra time to plan, shop, and prepare so many meals but it's worth it. I didn't do the workouts (I'm a cardio girl myself) so I didn't get that buff. It's a great program!

We have some really good friends doing it right now. They said at first it killed them but they are getting use to it and really liking it. Good luck to you!

Dana! My family swears by P90X! Glen and I have yet to be motivated to try it but i hear it is amazing! One of these days I will get on the P90X train! Keep me posted!

Nick and Chelsea said...

We just started the workouts and they are awesome!! We aren't doing the diet part because we're still {partially} doing body for life. Let me know how you like the eating aspect of it!

Jenny and Wyatt Dannels said...

Wyatt and I are doing P90X together too. WE love it...it is perfect for at home and it kicks your butt!! Good luck to you!

What is everybody watching the same infomercial at 2 in the morning. Ty just bought that and I was mad because we have a lot of workout videos and he has a gym membership, but Kristin I think does the workouts, but not any diet. Hope to see you guys this summer!

Haws and I actually wanted to get this! A friend of his said it is great. I don't think I would do the diet (even though being gluten free limits a lot of the refined carbs) but since I do cardio, pilates, yoga and all that with the gym, I think it would be a good way to mix things up. Maybe we can do it when I come to visit :)

haha...that girl in your ward is ALWAYS discribed as 'lovely', first word to come to mind! haha!

Seriously, just stick with it. I felt like the first week I was not seeing anything. I felt better with more energy (and sore!), but I started worrying I'd gain a ton of weight from all the protein. But this week I finally feel like I'm actually seeing and feeling results.

And yeah...you will TOTALLY crave carbs. I use to just eat pieces of bread throughout the day as snacks and I miss it! But I refuse to give in! haha.

Good luck!

No way! I want to do that soooooo bad! I asked Pike if he would do it with me, cuz i thought it would be a cool thing to do as a couple, and he said NO! rude huh! Let me know how you like it...cuz i really want to do it!

Lindsay said...

AaReAn said...

Hey sexy mama! Okay so you can call Sue on her cell (801) 360-6712 OR email her at susan_linford@byu.edu and she told me to tell you if you want to throw a scentsy party and your sales get to $400 she'll get a free plug in warmer plus all the other free stuff you get. Anywho...if you just wanna buy one thats what I did and that's fine too! :-)

Briana said...

You will love it. Todd and I have the videos and a few months ago we were doing it religiously and saw great results (without doing the diet, we just cut out a lot of carbs and sugars and saw results) but it kicks your butt!! It is a lot harder than you realize. Or it was for me anyway. Seeing it again makes me want to start working out to it again...:)
