P90X: Finally Seeing Improvement at Day 75

P90X: Finally Seeing Improvement at Day 75
I’m really not sure if it is even Day 75.  When committing to P90X back in April, exercise became a more consistent part of my daily schedule and somewhere between pull ups and Plyometrics I lost count.  It often is an inconvenience and many days I don’t want to do it.

How P90X will improve my Yoga practice
My husband and I are now on day 15 of P90X.  Keeping consistent has been fairly easy and I’m proud I’ve only missed a fifteen minute abdominal session to teach a yoga class.  My husband traveled to Puerto Rico for work and did push- ups and core work in his room and although not the... Read more »

The Terror of Stepping on the Scale

Last night my husband and I committed to ninety days of P90X,  intense exercises targeting different body parts daily.  We’ve been talking about a life style change for a while and felt it was the best program for us because we could do it at home while the kids are sleeping.

Spring Cleaning my Body with a Cleanse

Spring Cleaning my Body with a Cleanse
I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a cleanse.  I’ve always said I could never do one because I cannot not eat.  I am not fun to be around when I am hungry.  As a mother, I know that I can no longer act like a child and I will survive without food.  Hopefully, I... Read more »
