My Current Workout Love

About 5 years ago Daddy and I made an attempt to do P90x.  Both of us love to work out and we could do this at home and together (unlike the gym).  I loved it and stopped only when we moved because I had nowhere to work out (We stayed with my parents for awhile while we were house hunting).  Daddy enjoyed the workouts but thought they were WAY too long.

So when I heard P90x3 was coming out and it was only 30 minutes long I was so excited.  I was doing the Firm at the time (which will always be my true love) but I wanted to challenge myself and mix things up.  I was hoping Daddy and I could do it together again.  Of course this has been the busiest winter his work has ever had so he hasn't been able to (He HAS lost 40 lbs to date though!!)

P90x3 is a three month program.  You do three weeks of one schedule then a transition week and then into the next schedule and so on.  I am in my second transition week so I have one more month.

I have to say that I am LOVING it!!  I was worried that 30 minutes wouldn't feel like enough of a workout.  I was used to doing an hour.  Let me tell you, the first month I was sore after every workout.  Now it is only after the kickboxing workout but I always feel my muscles were worked hard the next day.  I also like that it is not a ton of cardio.  I loathe cardio.  I prefer to get cardio outside.  I hate doing it at home.

My muscles are way more defined than they were when I started.  I have a ripped stomach.  I have had 4 kids and twins and I am way too close to 40.  Yes I am pretty pleased with the results.  I am way too shy to ever post a picture but I swear it's true.  Daddy now calls me "Little fit wife"

The workout moves are hard.  I'm not going to lie.  The yoga is crazy.  But you work at your level.  I still can't do everything but I am definitely better than when I started.  Thirty minutes FLIES by.

If you want to get in shape or challenge yourself or are tired of going to the gym I really can't recommend this workout enough.  It's 30 minutes!!  I plan to start it over when I am done. 

And if you are a weirdo like me who loves to watch exercise infomercials then you can see the one for P90x3 here.

  1. I was doing the p90x10 min and was seeing results but then my knees couldn't take it and my doctor said no jarring exercise. I want to find a yoga program.

  2. Oh I love yoga! I don't know of a good one. I did the Jillian Michaels one but that was insane and not relaxing at all!!
