I hurt

Merrill had the great idea of us, as a couple, doing the P90X work out. And said if I did it with him - he wouldn't get a truck. OK.
We started today. At 5AM. 1 hour work outs 6 days a week. Very strict diet. Only one serving of carps per day for the first 4 weeks! I love bread! And rice, and pasta, and all that stuff! I hope I make it.
Today it was back and chest - so we did a billion push-ups and pull-ups. Well - I did the push ups, I didn't think I could....but I did manage to get about 7 to 10 each set. Pull-ups were a different story....sorry Merrill....but even you had a hard time! I sat on the ground and pulled a resistance band that was looped around the pull-up bar while Merrill did a few real pull-ups.
If we do "bring it" I should look really good in 3 months. Once we are done with the program I will give in and have bread toasted with butter and a big glass of orange juice every day for breakfast for a week. Only 90 days to go.....................
And don't ask for before pictures - we aren't going to scare anyone with those!

Are you kidding me!! Wow, that's discipline. Although I would gain back twice as much as I lost after all those eating restrictions. And I would think about food ALL the time, GOOD LUCK:) Can't wait to see the after shots

That is awesome. I know lots of people on that program...very effective. My friend and I were making bread the other day and she could hardly knead the dough b/c her arms hurt from that work out. Good luck!

Hey so i need your advice. I have been working out with p90x for almost a year now, but i have never been gutsy enough to do the eating with it. I am in great shape... except that last bit of fat in my stomach and I know if I did the eating, I could lose that. I want to know everything you are planning on eating and maybe you can help motivate me to do it. I need to do the eating, but am scared to start. Post a message on my blog and let me know your plan. GOOD LUCK!!!!

I have been wanted to do p90x since before I was pregnant but am too intimidated. I think I will stick to kick boxing and weight lifting... you go!
