Me and my Fiance are currently doing P90X. We have been doing it for about 2 weeks now. We really got into it, and was halfway through when we both got the flu. (Flu season) And never made it back to it, so we started it again. I will be your P90x Buddy!

Random question… Do you guys take the supplements with it? I’m all for healthy diet and exercise, but I really, really don’t like the creatine, etc., that’s recommended. Can it work successfully without it?

I don’t take any supplements and have been seeing results, my Fiance takes protien power and just regular vitamin packs. I say that mostly its a healthy eating, regular diet thing. I am very wary of the supplements.. generally because they are never FDA approved and I don’t like putting stuff in my body that I don’t really know much about.

We technically started Last week but I missed a few days due to being sick from my period. Undecided

 

Today I did plyo w/ my Fi. He is so much more physically able to do this. I usually have to take longer breaks than he does. But I am getting through them. I am really hating that I live on the 3rd floor of an apartment building.

 

Since I missed a few workouts when I get home I will be doing the shoulder and arm workouts so I am on the correct day.

 

The hardest thing for me is the diet. I am not over weight by any means, just a little soft in some areas.

I am 5’10 and about 135 pds. I want to be lean and a little bit cut w/ still some soft feminity.

 

I really don’t like giving up my sour cream and soda. Are you going to do the diet also or just the excerise?

Yeah the people below us have moved out, so noise isn’t a real big issue. Its after you workout your legs and have to climb 3 flights of stairs w/ groceries. Bleh…

 

We are trying to stick to the diet, eating healthy and from scratch isn’t a too big of a deal. Its just trying not to eat my “guilty pleasures” sour cream and soda and beer. We are doing a lot of lean protien, steamed veggies and water. But sometimes after a really hard workout I just want a beer. I have all the info on the diet things, if you PM w/ your email address I can send it to you when I get home if your interested. I like the daily check up because it keeps me more focused.

My Fiance is big into P90x but his doctors recommend him not being as lean as he was in full swing. We started eating healthy Jan 4 and since then I’ve lost 20 pounds, with intermitten exercises. Work keeps us busy and it’s not as easy to fit an hour workout in after work… ab ripper definitely helps keep us in the groove though! Here’s to another 20 pounds! :0)

I’ll be a p90x buddy!  My Fiance and I are doing the lean program and just started the third week yesterday (Tuesdays are the first day in our weeks so that we can rest on Mondays). 

I hate to admit this about myself, but there is absolutely no possible way that I would be doing this without my Fiance because I simply don’t have the discipline to work out 6 days a week when I get home from work.  The great thing about doing it together, though, is that he really pushes me to hurry up, get ready and get started when I get home from work.  If it weren’t for that, I could see myself losing motivation and not doing it.

We don’t do any supplements or recovery drinks or anything, but my Fiance does do protein shakes most days (but he did those before anyway).  I just try to eat a high protein and low carb diet… I am pretty good most of the time, but I could be way better. 

I have quite a bit of weight to lose (if possible, I’d ideally like to lose about 38 lbs. over the next five months), and I have already lost about 6 lbs. in the last two weeks that we’ve been doing p90x (lean).  I am starting to tell the difference in my midriff and back already for sure.  And as far as my ability to do all of the exercises with good form, I am still very much a work in progress, but we have both come WAY far on that.  It feels so awesome to know that already, in just two weeks, that I am stronger than I was starting out.  I am hooked! 

My biggest concern at this point is how to avoid being p90x dropouts.  It seems like a lot of people get a ways in and then something messes with their schedule (illness, travel, etc.) and they’re not able to get back into the groove.  Does anyone have any advice on how to avoid that???

Well no real advice on not being a drop out. Since I am one… lol. But I do advise you to not exercise to extremely when you are sick. And I mean really sick.. (serious flu, stomache bug) I would take vitamins daily, eat well and wash your hands before you touch your face, eyes, mouth, ears.. anything like that. And just to always make time, if you are going on vacation. Promise yourself even if you do not do the week of P90, that you will devout 20 minutes of some good cardio. If you do this, then you will be better off in returning to P90x.
