Let's get it started Tony Horton!

So. I took my "before" pictures today, or more accurately, I conned Rex into taking them. Let me tell you guys, seeing bathing suit pics in the dead of winter that aren't looking so hot, not awesome. However my photographer was more than willing to take them and compliment me, which never gets old, so it wasn't all out terrible. I'm debating if I'm going to post them or not. I know most of you have seen me in a bathing suit at some point in my life, but I'm not sure if I want to post them for the whole world to see if they stumble across this little blog of mine. We'll see what the 30 day pics look like and maybe they'll go up then.

You may be wondering what I'm "starting" or those of you with some detective skills may have figured out that it's P90X. I figure by putting it out there, hopefully, it'll make me a little more accountable for myself. My program will be a little offset with the addition of our dodgeball league in the mix, therefore my "rest" day won't be the same each week. And if I feel like taking a day to go cross country skiing or another athletic activity, I'm going to go for it, and just pick back up the next day. I need that flexibility.

My lovely little journey was supposed to start last week, before it got sidelined by a major cold bug (thanks kiddos at school!). So, in respect to that, if there comes a day/week where I feel something coming on, I will take the rest I need, and repeat a week if I have to. Again, flexibility is key. I hope it'll give me the same results, but I guess I won't know until I try. So, here's to a healthy, hardworking 90 days. I can't wait to see where it takes me! :)

Tony and I are bff's, you'll love him. I have to say that flexibility with his program is key. I felt like I needed more cardio, so I do his weight workouts every other day alternating w/my own cardio (mostly spinning since I just can't get motivated to run in sub zero temps). His weight programs are hands down my favorite of any video I have done...definitely kick butt but are still achievable. Keep me posted on what you think! Good luck!

I work with a couple of people who are obsessed with P90X and swear by it. Good luck!
