My name is Tena and I am 47 yrs young.

I have been married to Mike for 28 yrs and have 2 kids and 4 grandkids. I have struggled my entire life with fitness and health. I have tried every yo-yo diet, exercise gadget and exercise out there and failed. I used to work out hard but always got bored. I went through a period where I barely ate, consuming 600 calories at the most a day. I was sickly thin. Then when I turned 40, my body changed and I started gaining weight even though I stuck to 600 calories a day drinking slim fast. I went into a depression and was put on meds too. I was on the verge of anorexia and new something had to change in my life. The weight continued to creep on. I am 5'9" and my weight went up to 178 lbs!

In February 2007 my daughter gave me Turbo Jam. She bought it but could not do it because of her asthma. I loved it! I did lose alittle weight but not alot. In July my husband saw an informercial for P90X. I watched it and thought it was just too intense. He had faith in me and surprised me by buying it for me! I was really afraid but decided since he bought it, I would try it.

I started Round 1 on 8/20/07. From day 1, I loved it and loved Tony. I was super sore but kept pushing play. I talked with Wink (2007 winner) and he taught me to eat to lose weight. By the end of 90 days, I lost weight and went from a size 14 to a size 10 and could see muscles forming. I immediately went into Round 2 as I was pumped with the initial results. My coach, Tryinghard46, taught me the nutrition aspect and portion control. I stopped drinking slim fast and ate all real, healthy food. I continued to lose weight and develop muscles. My muscles were forming and I was developing muscles everywhere. By the end of Round 3, I was wearing a size 8. I have continued to press play 6 days a week and I now weigh 142 lbs and wearing a size 5.

I have learned the combination of eating healthy and the right exercise program will bring awesome results. I am amazed at the energy I have now. My grandson (7) loves Tony and doing his workouts with me when he is at my house. My 6 yr old granddaughter is now getting into the workouts too! Beachbody has changed my entire family as we are all eating healthy now. I have the energy to play hard with the grandkids and not just sit and watch them. We play all types of sports related games in our backyard.

In April 2008 I won the Transformation Contest for women in the 40-49 yr old range. Since winning I bought all of Tony's workouts.

I am now at the end of Round 6. I do the Classic Version of the X but incorporate some P90, P90 Master Series, P90X+, 10 min trainers and the monthly 1 on 1 series. After over 1 yr, I continue to see muscles STILL forming. My proudest thing is now I can do unassisted pull-ups. That is a HUGE accomplishment in my eyes.

Come join me and I will help you reach your goals for health and fitness. It is not a fad, it is a lifetime journey and commitment to health.

Hey Everyone! What a beautiful day! I got up early and went to my 7 yr old grandson's basketball game. He had a blast and made alot of baskets. They won by so much that at a point of 26-0, they quit keeping score...

Susan: Again Thank You for your sweet words. If it weren't for your motivation and inspiration I could not have accomplished my goals or should I say exceeded my goals! You taught me everything I know and then some!!!

Betty: Thanks for popping in! Thank you for your sweet words! You know how much I appreciate them but you too are a hardworking and enthusiastic person! How you have a great workout today!

Hey Everyone! Well, I just had another AWESOME workout! I did Kenpo Cardio+ and ARX, with ab work on ab slings and the ball. That just felt EXCELLENT!!!! Tomorrow is my regularly scheduled Rest Day but I doubt I will rest much with my almost 6 yr old granddaughter Ashley here! Well, I am starting to freeze so it is time to hit the shower and get ready for a nice low fat dinner...

Oh and this Recovery Drink tastes heavenly!!!

Hey Everyone! We are back from going out to eat! We all ate good. The chinese food was delicious! We came home and had some cake and played the new Wii games I got Ashley. She played alittle but is not crazy about them. She is just not a game person like that! I should have known better.

Here is a picture of Mike and Ashley sleeping when I finished my workout and Ashley with her birthday cake.

Hi Tena, congratulations on becoming a coach and starting a thread, I have to tell you that for the last more than a year you and I have wo in the evening and I have watched you. You have kept me motivated to continue some days when I didn't feel like it. I said Tena is there waiting for me and I should go wo. And I did, I read your BB page and was so motivated after and said to myself that if she can do the X than so can I and ordered it. I was debating for a few months if I should buy it or not. I did and loved the results. I still do X, X+, TJ, SIS, and now ChaLean (which I really love). Just know that people are watching and being motivated by you. I enjoy the wo in the evening with you. I also wo at 7am five days a week. Oh, yeah and I am 50. I am healthier than I was at 30, I love the way I look now and feel comfortable in my skin. I went from a size 16-18 to a size 8. I've never worn a size 8 before. Anyway, Barb gave me your thread address and if you don't mind I would like to pop in and say hey.

Jan: Welcome to my thread and please post often... I am literally speechless with what you wrote. You have to realize that you too is what motivates me to press play every day. I know that you, Barb and Banjo will be there every day and I cannot let you all down. I am like you and just cannot seem to get enough of Tony. Next weekend I plan to buy the Chalean Extreme workout. I have heard so many people say so many good things. The problem is, I feel like I am cheating on Tony!

You are so inspiring and have made such AWESOME results! A size 16-18 to a size 8 is just AMAZING, INSPIRING and VERY MOTIVATING to me. Keep it up girl! I am so proud of you and just look forward to our daily workouts together. Please post often.

Tena, Thank you for the lovely words, they mean alot to me. Don't feel guilty about getting ChaLean because it is an excellent wo and different for any of Tony's. They are also shorter. And you only have to count to 12 LOL. I am using much heavier weights with ChaLean. I am starting week three, and I do add 2 abs a week and am doing 3 extra cardio's a week. But I am really liking CX.

Oh, by the way were you about 12 when you started to have children, I can't believe you are a grandmother and are so young. WOW!!!!

You are one HOT!!!! GRANNY!!!!! Keep up the great work. You too should be very proud of yourself and all that you have accomplished, I'm proud of you and you look fabulous.

Good Morning Everyone! Well, I slept super good last night! Today, my granddaughter Ashley and I are going grocery shopping. It is our regular every 2 wks grocery shopping trip. Time to stock the cabinets for all healthy foods. Other than that, nothing planned for today other than play with Ashley til my daughter picks her up. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday...

Jan: You make me super excited now about ordering the Chalean workout next weekend. Right now I am in the last phase of Round 6 with Tony. So I will finish this Round and my next round will be Chalean. You sound like my coach, Susan as she does the Chalean as scheduled but still pops in other cardio and continues to workout 6 days a week. Thank you so much for your sweet words. I love going grocery shopping with Ashley cause she looks alot like me and everyone just thinks she is my daughter. Believe it or not, I was 19 when I had my daughter... emoticon You sure made me smile!

Blazebug: Thank you popping and posting! Please continue to come by! Thank you so much for your sweet words. You look AWESOME!

Barb: WOW! You were up late last night! I am like you, I am a very honest person and say what I feel... I wear my heart on my sleeve though and will not/do not ever hurt people. When did you talk to Susan? She is the most awesome person I know. Her and I have become best friends through here. She lives in Tennesee and I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Thanks for bring Jan over. She is a sweetheart like you! I am so glad to have you both in my lives. We can help each other succeed in our lifetime journey.

Well, today is my Rest Day but with Ashley around, there will not be much rest.
