On June 18, 2011 I hit day 60 of P90X. I never thought I would ever be able to commit to something for so long without getting bored!
As I confessed in my last blog, I have tried every diet out there. I tried diet pills, eating disorders, and also had a trainer at a gym- nothing worked. I wanted INSTANT results and we all know that it is hard to find something that is good for us and gives us instant gratification at the same time!
January of 2010, I had read about P90X and I saw so many infomercials about it. I thought this is too good to be true, there is no way people can get these results from this program. So I had to order it! I had to see with my own eyes that it worked. Well, I decided I wanted it, but I could NOT COMMIT. I did the program for 3-4 weeks and just stopped, I did not have the mindset that I wanted to lose my baby weight and get fit.
About 13 months passed and I had seen my now Coach posting about losing weight and her pictures were great that I decided to start P90X again.
So April 19, 2011 I FULLY COMMITTED to P90X, I thought to myself, this time I had to commit, because I needed to change my body– I needed to lose weight and tone my stomach! I was able to change my diet, lose weight, and feel great about myself.
Yes, there were many days that I felt like giving up and not working out, but I thought about the reason WHY I committed this time- I wanted to get my body back and feel good about myself. I needed to get happier because I always felt depressed and miserable- this would reflect on my kids and that needed to change! I would also picture the body I wanted- that got me up and made me press play! P90X is intense, BUT IT WORKS!!!!
Well, I can honestly say that P90X has changed my life. I am happier about my body, my life, and I can actually run around with my kids and play with them because I have MORE ENERGY!
I now am a Beachbody Coach which helps me be accountable- I help people reach their fitness goals while working towards mine! This has made me realize that there are so many people out there with my same situation- baby weight that needed to come off, a stretched out stomach from gaining SOO much weight during pregnancy, and people who need to see results because they are giving up on themselves.
As I sit here and write this blog, I am 2 weeks away from my 90 day transformation and I will be going on vacation to the beach July 9th- July 17th. Let’s see how these next to weeks go and check back to see my FULL transformation!
