a big FAT secret

Yep, for almost a month now I have been sitting on a big ole secret, but not anymore! I started P90X almost four weeks ago and I feel great! Ben and I are doing the workouts together 6 days a week and they are each almost one hour. Yeah, I know that's a long time, but it works. When I started I couldn't do ANY real push ups. At all. I had to do the cheater girly ones where you have your knees on the floor and push up from there, but now I can do 20 military style push ups and not even feel like dying! LOL! I am starting to see a difference in my clothes too and a few people have even commented on the difference that they can see. YAY! It feels really good. I started working out regularly back in November but I never really pushed myself to the point of getting stronger, I was more focused on just getting in 30 minutes of cardio a day. This is totally different, now I am pushing myself to do things I have NEVER been able to do...and I can actually do it! I decided back in November that I couldn't complain about my body not working properly if I wasn't feeding it and exercising like I should, so made the choice to take care of what God gave me! Y'all, I feel like a new person. I have so much more energy. **Warning** I am about to try to motivate you to do the same if you aren't already....If you have been putting off getting in shape (like I did for a while) get off your bum and start! You won't feel ANY better until you work a little! We need to be good stewards of what God gave us! Complaining about it isn't gunna help (believe me I tried that for a month and I just felt worse) you have to commit to getting off your rear six days a week for at least a month. If you don't feel better after a month of good workouts you can quit and go back to the complaining. LOL! Who's with me??

I just bought p90x and am waiting for it to come in the mail. I can't wait to start it! Happy to hear you have enjoyed it so far.

Not sure what p90x is, but I am pretty sure it does not involve me eating the bag of chips I am devouring while nursing my head where Ahnalin just smacked me with her cast. I am proud of you Sam and I know I need to do something, anything, more than I am doing by way of exercise. So, you MAY be motivating me.

Yep - Hubby and I have been out walking in the evenings and it does feel great. We have a treadmill ready to go for the winter months ahead, our goal is to get outside as much as possible and use the treadmill only if we absolutely have too. We decided that outside is way more exciting and engaging than the treadmill will be.
