Change in Plans....

I am not giving up, not by any means, but I have lost weight before, and I know what works best. Not for you, not for the lady down the street, not for the public at large, but I know what works for ME. Cardio, cardio, cardio, clean eating, cardio, cardio, cardio.

P90X is a fabulous system for people, like my friend Julie, who aren't really looking to lose large amounts of weight, but to get their body in the best shape of their life. It is a fabulous program, and one I will definitely be doing hardcore once I get much closer to my goal weight. I have approximately 70 pounds to lose, and right now, for me, for my body, I need to just walk, do the stairmaster, swim, etc. MINIMUM of 1 hour a day, preferably more.

I did the P90X for almost 3 weeks and it was REALLY hard for someone with so much extra weight to do. There were a lot of things that I just plain couldn't do, and while it was okay at first, it got very frustrating.

I am still working out though! Just doing what I know has worked in the past. I just hate that it has to go so slow!!!!!!!!!!! Luckily, it's fall here in Minnesota and I can walk outside for a little bit longer. The other day, me and Rico the Poolboy, as I affectionately call my husband, went for a little 8 mile jaunt. It was awesome!

Here's a little picture of the trail near our house! The view alone was worth working 8 miles!
