So, I am going up the walls over here! It’s so cold and snowy, on top of our already *very* restricted movement. I went from not having a car last year and walking everywhere, and running at least 4 days a week to literally… nothing.
DH’s work keeps telling us they will give us a treadmill but they never do, and I’ve sort of given up on that. I go to the gym about once a week, coupled with my already long commute from work and the fact its $30/visit or $300/month, that’s not exactly sustainable.
But I’m going crazy! I haven’t gained a ton of weight since getting here in September, but I just feel so gross, out of shape, and honestly… ugly.
I downloaded a few other exercise videos and have sort of a tough time with them because it feels corny. But I need to do something to start feeling better so I was thinking about P90x. It seems like a huge committment when I already have long days (and work 6 days a week), but I honestly really miss working out and think it might help me have more energy generally during the day.
Have you done it? I’d love to hear your thoughts:
What were your overall impressions?
Did you do the whole 90 days?
What were the hardest parts about it? What was the easiest?
What type of shape were you in beforehand?
What type of shape were you in afterward?
Did it take a lot of equipment?
Were you able to sustain your results? (At least relatively?)
Did you think it was cheesy? How would you compare it with, say a Jillian Michaels video? (Love Jillian’s podcasts and books, but I feel like she says really dumb things in the workout videos)
Anything else you think I should know?
Thanks a lot for your opinions!
