P90 - what???

My hubby teaches phys ed.  He also coaches football, wrestling and pole vault.  It is his job to be fit and teach others to be fit, too.  So naturally it makes sense for me to share that passion with him.  While I have always understood the value of staying fit, these past, oh 7 years of having children and raising them has been a barrier to staying in shape.

Well, I finished grad school this past April and now have no excuses.  If I could get my MBA with two small children, a super busy husband and a full time job, surely I can fit in some exercise now that I'm done with school, right?  I'm trying.  While I enjoy running, I only can fit in exercise at 5:00 am and the treadmill gets old quickly. Hubby encouraged me to try P90X a few years ago, but I quickly dismissed his suggestion.  There's no way I could do something like that.  Those people are super fit - not super exhausted and out of shape.

I'm here to tell you now that after years of denial, I've now completed 6 weeks of P90X and am hooked!  I wasn't as out of shape as I thought - the treadmill and Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred helped me prepare for the craziness that is called P90X.  I think it is a great system and will give it a little input on the different workouts as the weeks go by.  This morning was a legs and back day.  Tough, tough workout. I'll tell you more about it next week!
