It seems fitting to start this new open and honest blog with what I have been doing in LOTS of my spare time for the last few weeks!

I wanted to keep it a secret until the end of our 90 days, but I have already told so many people! Eric and I just completed Day 43 of P90X. For those of you that have never heard of it, it is an "extreme home fitness program" as they like to say. It is definitely kicking out butts. Some days we have to force ourselves to get started, some days I look forward to it, and a few times we have talked ourselves out of doing it. We don't plan to repeat the latter to often, but sometimes we are just too tired or just run out of time in the day and we don't want to work out until 1 in the morning!

So far, I can tell Eric has real results, and he has lost some weight. But I cannot tell on myself. And I have only lost about 3 or 4 lbs. But I feel better. My shoulder doesn't bother me as much as it used to. I can push myself harder during the workouts. I am not tired during the warm up anymore.

It has been a major blessing to be able to work out together. It is way better than trying to do it on your own. I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone. Working out with a partner, especially your spouse, is awesome! We motivate each other. Sometimes one of us doesn't want to work out, but the other does. Sometimes we both don't want to, but we press play anyways because we know we will feel bad about it later.

I think working out needs to be a way of life. Not just something I do for 90 days than give up. I have found that if you make working our a priority, you will find time to do it, even without missing out on anything. The only thing I miss out on is watching TV or going on the internet, which is probably a good thing!

Which is why I am working towards becoming a fitness instructor. I would love to do TurboKick (like Turbo Jam). Jay is helping me work towards that goal! I should be able to start teaching classses by the fall! I cannot think of any better motivation than to be the instructor of a class and have to be there! And make some money while doing it!

It would help to get your fitness training if you'd send me your box number like I asked so I can register you!

That's so awesome Lindsey! I'm ready to start getting into shape again. Hopefully I will find the motivation :)
