|my workout set up - Tony on the laptop with the sun lamp my mom gave me blasting!|
The first week of P90X was hard. But, there was something about this Tony guy that kept me coming back for more. Plus, as sore as I was, I felt hyped about the program (big time). The first 4 weeks were actually easy in the sense that staying motivated wasn't an issue in the least. I remember raving to my friend who had done P90X about the changes I was seeing and being told "just wait - you are still early in the game".
I kept on trucking, day in, day out. The only thing that temporarily derailed me was getting the flu. I got back on track though (wow was that hard). And now fast forward to March 23rd and I only have 5 more workouts to go until I complete the program. It already feels like a huge achievement! Now, I know showing off before and after pictures is a big part of this whole thing, but...well, I'm not sure if I'm going to do it. I've had some feedback as of late that I have been showing off my physique too much, so unless there is a huge outcry (hah!) I'm going to lay off the photos of me in my workout wear.
Apparently I am supposed to take 2 weeks off after I finish P90X before I jump into my next program. I'm not sure I'll be able to sit still that long, but I'll give it a try (and likely check out the local yoga studio "kula" to make sure I stay limber). I'm jumping into a hard core cardio interval program next that REALLY makes me nervous. But word has it that if I can do P90X, I can do anything. Guess we'll see about that!
