Mail Time!

I am so excited!

Look what was on my doorstep yesterday! P90X2!!!

My mom bought it for me to try when QVC had it as "Todays Special Value"...yes she shops QVC...and I admit...I occasionally do as well.

My kit has the 13 discs, the stability ball and pump and a trial of chocolate shakeology. Plus the nutritional guide and getting started guide.

After reviewing this new program, I have to admit...I am a little scared. LOL. Everything gets kicked up a notch and now instead of 6 days a week of training, we only do 5.

What I plan on doing is finishing out my regular P90X which is now set back a week due to my sickness. Not a biggie though.

So second week in April, I should be starting P90X2! BUT with QVC you have 30 days to try it out and return it if you don't like it for your money back. SO I will be reviewing the discs before actually doing the program to make sure the moves are do-able (I am sure they are. It will always be hard starting out). A couple things they recommend is the stability ball which came with my kit...another is bands...which I have from P90X...Chin up bar...I use the bands...A foam roller for stretching...and medicine balls (or two or three or four the manual says ha!). Then the typical equipment like yoga mat, free weights, yoga blocks and push up stands.

I will probably use my kids balls in place of medicine balls at first. But Tony says that the med balls are more sturdy which will allow you to master difficult balance movements and progress quicker to more advanced positions.

Looks like it will be a very fun program. This time there are no recovery weeks built is all up to you. They give you what you do during the weeks you choose as recovery. And you start off the program with Core right away. And remember Plyometrics? This time it is called Plyocide. Wonderful. LOL.

Today I am starting to feel better. I did not sleep well at all last night though. All night long my ears popped and drained (did I mention that my left ear drum ruptured too?) and my eyes kept getting stuck together. So everytime I woke up to flip over, I had to fully wake up to unstick my eyes, the deal with the popping and fizzing of my ears. Ugh. So tonight I will be going to bed early again.

But on the plus side, (TMI warning!) my mucus is turning from yellow to clear so I think the infection is starting to subside.

Also I got on the scale this morning...bad I know...and I lost 3 lbs since yesterday! I know that I have been drinking a ton so it wasn't from that...I ate well yesterday so it wasn't from that...that only leaves one thing. Ugh. My muscle mass is diminishing. Oh well. No biggie. I will get it back. It was kind of nice seeing the scale at 167 lbs today. LOL. I wish that I could get into the 150's and still be built. I don't know if that is possible but honestly I would really truly be happy at a good, muscular, fit 170.

The Tip of the Day:


  1. I LOVE QVC and HSN! I LOVE easy pay- it helps spread out the damage!

  2. My favorite chocolate shakeology is 2 tbsp of almond butter, a banana, a little bit of ice, 2 cup of water, 1 packet of shakeology, and a cup of spinach (that's optional thou). If are just doing it for the first time I would leave out the Spinach. I love it!!

  3. Beionca...that is exactly the shake I was going to try first. I always have a green smoothie in the morning and I figured I would just keep going with my spinach! I cant wait to try it! Probably on Monday when I start my exercising again.

  4. Best of luck with your new kit, and I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. There's lots of "crud" going around. I got sick yesterday, and we're flying out for vacation tomorrow. I should have stayed away from the grandkids and their coughs, sniffles, and runny noses. Very bad timing! Have a good weekend, and enjoy feeling better!
