Why P90x?
I have been on alittle bit of a fitness kick for about a year and a half now. First let me define that for you. In January of 2008 I weighed 174 pounds. For those of you that know me you know that 174 lbs is not good for me. I should weigh around 135 or so. But as always my God came through and blessed me with a very intelligent and caring woman named Carmen Zarkowski. Carmen as I know her is a wonderful woman who homeschools her children and also ventures in the educational side of nutrition and fitness. In a nut shell she really knows what she is doing. She sat with me and showed me how to eat and how to work out. I was very disciplined for about six months and in that time I lost 24lbs. I went from a tight 14 to a snug but wearable 10. Yey Me!!! Of course the busyness of life set in and I slowly but surely walked away from my great new eating habits. Not completely but I was breaking just about every rule there was. Well now I want to lose the 15-20 lbs I have left and at the same time get healthy and strong and feel great. During my time of transition my husband had shown an interest in getting healthy also. Our local gym is about 20 min from our house( we live way out in the country) so us meeting there everyday just was not going to happen. I wanted a good steady routine to do at home that would be appealing to both of us. Most of the do at home workouts that you come across are geared toward women and are alittle cheesy for men. When I came across P90x it was the exact opposite. It's totally geared towards men and women and it is very interesting and keeps changing up the whole 90 days. This was something that Kevin was willing to try at home and it was something that both of us could do together without spending hundreds of dollars at the gym. All we needed was some dumbells, a chin up bar, and the dvds, and we were ready to go!!!
