I haven't been overly sedentary honestly ever in my life, I used to work a very very physical job and then I got pregnant and had to take on an office job because the physical part caused problems. Now I have a 17 month old, a job where I sit on my butt for 5 hours a day, and co-workers who love to bring in sweets. So taking out the physical job and replacing it with a job where I sit on my butt and eat sweets has taken its toll. However I do still go for walks with my toddler, haul him around, chase after him, and run around the park with him.

However I'm at the point where I feel lazy compared to who I used to be, I used to walk 10 + miles a day as part of my job, lift 75lb items all the time, run up and down stairs, and bend, swat, never sit down for 8 hours a day.

Watch the videos before you try them. P90X will show options for beginner, intermediate and advanced users. Do what you can to start, don't feel obligated to do what they do. Make modifications where you need them. Example, if you can't do a jumping jack, march in place or do a modified jack. Take breaks when you need them.

If you've been very sedentary for a very long time, you should slowly ease into a routine, so that your exercise will become just that, a routine. So, if you're new to exercise, try P90X once or twice a week. Combine that with a daily walk. With time, your strength and endurance will increase. Don't try to do too much too soon or you risk injury.

You might also check YOUTUBE. Tony Horton has some short videos posted that you might watch for more information.

I just got the dvds without the information that goes with them, but I've looked through them a little and they seem like don't do too hard of moves so that anyone can do them. But I'm not sure, I'm 230 and I am planning on going down to 150 or so in the next year and a half. But I'm wondering if its realistic to think I can do these exercises or not. Any tips or anything?
