second chance

7 Sep

We all deserve a second chance, right? 

I have completely failed at completing P90X the first time around. Not only is the workout extremely intense, but it requires an hour or more commitment 6 days out of 7. Now, I don’t know about you, but finding time to shower each day is a challenge enough. I know it seems like I would have all the time in the world- being a stay at home mom and all. But let me just tell you, being a mom is the hardest, most time consuming thing I’ve ever done. And then I’m working full time on top of it.

Showering is a luxury these days, let alone getting in a good workout. 


But I have to commit to it. I have to. I need to start over and get myself into better shape. Something is going to have to take a back seat here, and it’s not going to be my health. The house cleaning can wait. And it will, let me tell you. 

So I am starting over. Today. September 7th, 2009 is DAY 1. 

In doing 90 days of P90X, my last day- the day in which I complete the program- will be December 5th, 2009. Just in time for the holidays.

Whatever that means. 

Please help keep me accountable. I really want to do this, but need encouragement from YOU to make it a priority every single day. It’s hard. It’s a lot of work.

Most things that are good in life are just that way it seems. It’ll be worth it in the end.

p90xI was doing laundry yesterday- our clothes had spent enough time on the floor I guess. I thought I’d actually hang them up for once.

I picked up a pair of my jeans and didn’t like what I saw.

While I ‘have’ lost all my baby weight, I still feel as though I have a few more pounds to loose and better yet- get toned up.

I’m tired of not being in shape.

And after having a baby, my body just feels different. It’s time to take action.

So literally- and I mean literally- Jason and I scraped together every penny, nickel, dime and quarter we had in our wallets and house. Cashed it in, and actually had enough to purchase our new workout plan!


Several people I know are doing this, and they all look awesome.

Then I was speaking to a friend of mine who is a personal trainer, and when she recommended P90X, that did it for me.

I’ve heard that it’s really hard, intense and that I should be ready to be more sore than I’ve ever been.

Bring it on because I need to be in better shape than I was before I got pregnant.

And posting this in some way, is a good form of accountability for me. It’s out there. You’re reading this. And I really want to post the results in 90 days.

I start this Friday- once it actually arrives in the mail.

Until then I will rest and take advantage of these few days of no working out.
