On 1.4.10 I decided to finally start my P90X journey. I’ve been staring at the workout DVDs for about 2 years now. My husband ordered and completed the program but I’ve always been a little intimidated by it. I’ve never considered myself to be fat, obese, or overweight–but I know I’m not really in that great of shape. It bothers me that I can’t do a pull-up or touch my toes. I don’t like the way my jeans fit. And who hasn’t wondered what they’d look like with a six-pack??
I decided to journal the experience on my blog, to both hold myself accountable and to keep a record of my progress. There is much learning to be done and hopefully I might encourage others to take the plunge. I find it interesting that on a lot of other blogs I stumbled upon written by people with similar intentions most don’t make it past day 30. So, I’m determined NOT to be one of those people!
As I progress along I’m going to update this page with an index that links to different articles. In particular I’d like to focus on the unique aspects of P90X for women. UPDATE: On 4.3.10 I officially became a P90X graduate. Woot! I’m currently on Round 2 of the program, but am incorporating Insanity into my Doubles routine as a substitute for some of the Cardio X and Kenpo X workouts.

If you have any questions about P90X please post them in the comments section or use my contact page so I can be sure to address them.
Also, if you’re a woman considering P90X or even if you started P90X already, I encourage you to pick-up a copy of the New Rules of Lifting for Women. As a woman totally new to the idea of “extreme home fitness” it really helped me out a lot and answered a lot of questions I had after reading the P90X book and nutrition guide.
