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. 

*Sigh* 

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!

P90X.

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.
