You can totally do it! Mr.ND always makes me mad, but he’s right…if I just do it for 3 weeks in a row again it’s a habit and not a chore anymore. (It’s the getting to 3 weeks again that SUCKS!) Maybe the P90X isn’t giving you the results you want and you need to try something new? There are some great Couch to 5K podcasts that are free (my favorite is here) if it’s warm enough where you are or you’ve got access to a gym. I just started the 30 Day Shred today (Jillian Michael’s DVD) and it’s only 25 minutes each time, so if you want to sort of ease back in with a lower time commitment, either of those would give you more spare time in the morning. 

Just make yourself get going again, and after a while it won’t suck so bad. And also, don’t drag yourself through something you hate…if it’s not showing you the results you want and it’s not ‘fun’ (as fun as a workout can be) then try something else. Exercise is more than half mental, in my opinion. You need to enjoy it and be motivated by it.

You can do it!!! I know how you feel about losing motivation.  I just jumped back on today and I am deteremined to get my motivation back.  I like what PP said about doing something for 3 weeks and then it’s just your routine.  I know it’s hard when you’re so busy, but I think it’s totally worth it when I feel better about myself. 

I can’t speak directly about P90x, but I am a big fan of Jillian’s videos.  I did No More Trouble Zones tonight and I am fairly certain I will be feeling it tomorrow (in a good way).

Just remember, the 1st day is the hardest.  It gets easier after that!

Just try it for one day and you’ll be right back into it. It won’t take as long to get into it again. If your disappointed about the scale, try adding in some extra cardio. Also, making some diet changes.

I’m in the same predicament.  I started Weight Watchers and was good with exercising.  Then I got sick and never went back to it.  I need to get my ass motivated.

@Summer82: I did 30 Day Shred (Level 1: Day 1) yesterday…today I almost had to ‘phone a friend’ to help me get back up from the toilet. Lol. The squats KILLED ME. Needless to say, today was just some stretching, tomorrow is L1:D1 again. Bahaha. *ouch, hurts to laugh* 😛
