Our engagement picture
I am hoping that this is the year that I finally can say I did it, I met my goal of losing weight. Last year I was able to use the excuse of living away from home and being in my last year of hygiene school...well now I have graduated, moved home with my husband, have a job and now its time to tackle my weight again. I know I can do this, its just I have to get out of my "lazy" lifestyle. My husband wants to bulk up, so we are going to be starting the P90X program together. Instead of eating supper in front of the tv after work and staying there, we can workout together and build a hobby we like to do with eachother. I know that I wont be able to do this on my own, so thats why I am here to get some support from friends going through the same thing.
My hardest obstacle is food!! I love food and all the wrong kinds of foods. My husband has a medical condition where he has to GAIN weight,so temptation is always around me. I do not do well with temptation and usually cave in. This is going to be my biggest challange......lets hope this year I can overcome my food tempation and be tempted by being healthy and fit instead!
I would like to lose about 30-40lbs total.
I would like to lose the lazy lifestyle that we have grown into and be a role model for our kids(when we have them)
Just starting, AGAIN.....trying to drink more water and log in all my food and activities
Going to start the P90X when it gets here...I cant wait!!!!

Welcome back and welcome to the challenge! I was the same way about Yoga, especially crane. It is still difficult for me, but I am able to stay up for most of the time, when in week one, I couldn't at all. It is the progression of all the workouts that will get you there, and it feels great to do something today, you couldn't do in week one. I am on day 35 today and still loving it. I do have to say, I don't like the rest week as much as everyone else does. The workouts are still tough, but too much cardio, core and stretching for me in one week. I will probably change some of it come week 8.
Keep me update on how things are going.

I had KenpoX last night as well. It is getting a lot easier. My kicks and coordination are night and day from when I first started. I'll tell you, once you go through these DVDs 2-3 times and get to know the moves the less you have to look at the TV and it becomes a lot easier.
I am glad to hear your husband is taking breaks if he is struggling because of his lungs. It will get better for him, but he should not push himself too much. I press pause a lot. Mainly on my back days because I like to do a little extra with the bands since my pull up are pretty weak.
Well you two have fun in Florida. We will all be here when you get back!

Me and a friend from work started P90X together last year. I really like the recovery drink and think it does help. My friend can't stand the taste of it. So I would suggest getting it and trying it and decide for yourself.
The first week of P90X, you will be incredibly sore even if your like me and can't do many reps at all of the exercises.Iif you already have the recovery drink, it will really help that first week.
As far as the diet, if you do your own thing, look at the sample menu and the quantities of the food. I was shocked to be eating that much, but you really need to for your body to have the fuel to get through the workouts and benefit. I actually gained a little the first few days, but it doesn't last long.
Feel free to email me anytime about any questions and let me know how it is going. Once you start and get results, it is hard to stop. Good Luck!

The P90X recovery powder is not bad at all and it has all the essential supplements to keep your muscles as far from fatigue (between workouts) as possible. Obviously you want to work to fatigue during your daily sessions. If your husband is unfamiliar with Whey Protein or what creatine has to offer I recommend some research. They both help build muscle, but I believe in different ways. Some guys who are looking to get bulky take both. P90X offers a 3 phase system with the diet. The phases give options for the following:
1. Fat Burner - requires less Whey Protein
2. Muscle Builder - Requires a medium amount of Whey Protein
3. Performance Enhancer (sounds odd, I know) - but this if for increased athletic ability and requires the most Whey Protein.
You will see all this in the books you get when your DVD's arrive. They’re very informative and I suggest taking the time to read through them. However, I will be here to help also if you need it.
