I’m slowly returning from the dead this week. I came down with the stomach flu earlier this week. Awful. The worst. However, I’m on the mend and no one else around here got it!
Of course I just had to get sick the same week I was going to start P90X! I don’t know why it always seems to happen that way!! Maybe my body is telling me I need a break before torturing it again?
When I first started working out, I would run on the treadmill. I hated it! But I knew I needed to do something. So I ran and I ran and I ran. I kept myself at a healthy weight but I wasn’t really “toning” up like I wanted to.
I was afraid to add weight lifting into my workouts. I thought I would “bulk up” and start looking like a man! But I decided to try it anyway, what did I have to lose? I was on the verge of giving up the running, it was getting boring for me. So that’s when I added strength training into my workouts. And BAM, I noticed a complete turn around.
My first home workout program was P90. It was a great introduction to strength training. After completing it I noticed I was toning up, just like I wanted. Once I completed the program it was time for a new challenge.
That’s when I turned to ChaLEAN Extreme. I fell in love with this program. It helped me get into the best shape of my life. I actually have muscles now…and a six pack! The videos are very inspirational. There is even a 60 year old women who is in this video. If that doesn’t get ya inspired….
I’ve also been mixing in Insanity with it which is, well…..INSANE!
Now it’s time to mix things up again. I’m kinda nervous about starting P90X. I know it’s going to be a new challenge. But I’m up for it. I’ll let you know how it goes over the next few weeks. I plan to start it next week, when my body and appetite are fully functional!
In the meantime, I would love to hear if you have any favorite workouts?
