I'm a 24 year old law student who started P90X in the spring of my first year of law school. I had completed 30 days before finals came around and then fell off the wagon. After that, I had to take a leave of absence from school because my dad came home from physical therapy rehab and needed a "daddy-sitter" when my mom was at work. Now that my dad is more capable of doing things on his own, I'm working full time and have gained 10 lbs. since stopping P90X last time. <BR> <BR>...

My name is Audra and I am currently in the process of building myself up to do p90x. i have the dvds and am buying the right foods at the grocery store. I feel I need to be more mentally prepared. I will be going on vacation in a few months and would like to look fantastic! But I would also like to keep up with the program, not slack off and once the 90 days are completed, go back to my regular routine (no thanks). This is a lifestyle change that needs to be done. <BR> <BR> Has anyone h...

It's been 2 months and I have gained 4 pounds. Sounds like not that much but I feel really stuck. Also I can't seem to get the fire going under my workouts any more. I'm still walking or jogging 4-6 miles etch day or cycling. I still have another 40 pounds to I reach my goal. During the day I'm great but find myself doing the late night eating thing again. I would love input from others. <BR> Thanks....

I recently decided that this was the time I would lose weight... I am around 40-50 lbs overweight and I would like to lose most of that by November when I turn 30. The problem is that I do not have much of a support network.

I'm not going to allow that to stop me though. I know its only day one, so it's not unlikely for someone to start feeling sick after a hard exercise. I will not give up and I'm blessed enough to have my boyfriend supporting me and keeping me focused. I'm ready for the next 90 days.

I had my thyroid removed, so I'm completely dependent on my meds to keep my metabolism right. But, I worry that if I eat as many calories as suggested in p90x that my body won't adjust and I'll gain weight. Anyone have any thoughts? <BR> <BR> I currently follow my recommendations from sparkpeople, which is 1350-1450 cals per day.

My name is Nicole; I'm 23, and horribly out of shape. <BR> <BR> I've actually owned P90X for well over 6 months, but never had the guts to start it. I've decided better late than never, so today will be Day 1 for me.

But, I wasn't given anything about the eating plan or the workout sheets to use with the strength workouts. Does anyone know of a source where I can find these?

With 2 days off, I cannot decide how I should go about doing the videos, and am looking for advice. Should I just do the videos in order, rather than day 1 of every week being the same, or should I leave out a video?

However I have mixed in some of the P90x exercises like kenpo, cardio x and ab ripper x to make it less boring. I did regular P90 for 90 days and then half a masters program. Lost about 25 lbs and then gained about 5 back this winter. I am looking forward to getting back into better shape. <BR> <BR> Anyone here mixed the P90 programs into a schedule?

I've been huddling with this team for a week, but I'm the only one. It's hard to huddle alone. Try it, it's kind of fun, and it's worth a Spark Point! Sun, 16 Jan 2011 11:43:02 EST Ugh, Day One.... Again http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x25689x39165005 I made it 45 days last time until scheduling and progress made me rest on my laurels. Unfortunately I get to go through the whole constant muscle soreness again :) But in two weeks that will be behind me and I will be back on track! I find that playing my own music instead of using the music from the DVDs makes a huge difference.

So far, so GREAT ~ lost 6 lbs, a few inches over all - except legs, where I've gained an inch :) LOVING P90X, it's transforming my body and I'm learning SO much about nutrition and giving my body the appropriate fuel to feel amazing and get the results I want.

I gained about 5 lbs of muscle, and I know it is temporarily. I need to make sure I am eating good snacks, I am a huge fans of pistachios, cashews, peanuts, almonds, or course I know there is fruit and veggies. I am not sure about greek yogurt, I feel bloated when I eat dairy, but I know I need it and it is important. Well I did a Shakelogy cleanse so we will see tomorrow.

I hated fiber supplements until I discovered Benefiber - it really does dissolve into anything and goes unnoticed. <BR> <BR> Is there a protein powder that does the same thing? I really dislike protein drinks and bars for the most part (unless they're loaded with sugar and that defeats the purpose). <BR> <BR> I get most of my protein from meats, beans, cheeses, eggs, etc but if I could find a protein supplement that was essentially flavor free, that would be nice.

I am currently doing Insanity and i am thinking about doing P90x second round next month. I was wondering if anyone has done the doubles or would be willing to try it next month. <BR> <BR> Ann Fri, 4 Sep 2009 15:03:04 EST I Have some questions.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=7566x25689x27476929 I bought the p90x tapes but not the booklet and that stuff...what do you guys do every day? do you just choose one of the tapes and do it? or is there a system? <BR> <BR> Also How do you enter the p90x program into your fitness hours here on sparkpeople.com? Do you count it as cardio? and if you are putting the weight lifting in are you putting it in individually or at all? Tue, 4 Aug 2009 15:32:42 EST just getting started on Spark people http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x25689x27303841 Hi, I've been doing P90X for quite a while. I am on my second 90 day week 7. I have lost 12 pounds. I am working hard to lose weight. I find that no matter how hard I work out I am not losing. I think it may have something to do with my food intake. I like the food calculator. I'm finding I'm eating more that what I should. I hope this will help me to lose more weight and body fat. Tue, 28 Jul 2009 08:59:49 EST Is there anyway????? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=7566x25689x27256936 Is there anyway to find people in my area of town who are signed up to do P90X? I would really like to find someone who lives around me to BUDDY up to say. It is hard for me to do the buddy board, I am needing lots of LIVE motivation, I am getting bored by myself. Is there any way to find any one??? <BR> <BR> Jackie Sun, 26 Jul 2009 09:04:30 EST Anyone do shakes:? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x25689x26882775 I'm looking for a good one to do and was just wondering what some peple put in there's?

I actually was up 2 lbs for awhile, but now I'm back to my starting weight. I know muscle weighs more than fat and I have lost a little in inches, but its still frustrating, because before I started the program was loosing weight at about 1 lb to 1.5 a week. Anyone else having the same trouble with the classic version? I probably should have done the lean one first :( I do love the workouts though Tue, 21 Apr 2009 17:11:39 EST Workout ?'s http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x25689x24867111 I am trying to keep track of my fitness on here, how do I know how much I am burning and how do I log it on here.

Both seem to be 90 day programs with the same theory behind them (muscle confusion every 30 days). Has anyone done both? Is one more difficult then the other? I'm in the middle of P90X but I am curious about the Chalean Extreme program, but I don't want to spend the money if it is the same as P90X (or very similar). <BR> <BR> THANKS!!!

A friend of mine started telling me about P90X a couple of months ago. After a lot of research and consideration, I bought the program last week, and am starting the workouts tonight.
