Here are a few tips to get you going:


Nutrition:
• If you want to see great results, you have to focus on your nutrition as much as the workouts. Nutrition plays a key role in how you will reach your goals and attain the new and better you! Be prepared by getting a solid nutrition plan in place prior to starting. You can do this week-to-week or even plan out your entire month. Over time you will learn new eating habits that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. I usually plan a week at a time, makes grocery shopping more manageable for me!
• Shakeology is a great way to meet all of your nutritional needs! As a meal or a snack it fuels your body with everything it needs in order to BRING IT every day!
• Track your progress:
Where are you now? Where do you want to be? Have goals!
• Nothing is more important or motivating than to see where you started and how you are progressing along the way! It is so CRUCIAL that you do the following BEFORE you begin:
• Take your Measurements
Take your before & after pictures
• Take the fit test
I can’t tell you how many people I’ve talked to that told me they were so mad at themselves for not doing this before they started. You don’t have to share them with anyone but yourself. Just take the pictures, you’ll be glad you did!
Write down everything including your reps, your weight and your food intake. Utilize the Excel Workbook to track your workout progress.
P90X Excel Workbook
P90X Excel Worksheets
Also utilize the tools that TBB provides. Complete your profile, and track your measurements and weight online. I use MyFitnessPal online to track my food diary as well as my calories burned each day. I would highly recommend signing up and add me as a buddy. My id is nonasmom. MFP also has apps for iPhone, Andriod, and Blackberry.


Pre-Workout:
• These workouts are INTENSE! The right fuel will help your body “Bring It!” with the intensity you need! If you eat a pre-workout meal, is very important to wait about an hour before you work out. Eat too soon and you could end up losing the meal instead of bringing the intensity!

• If you workout first thing in the morning like I do you might want to skip eating and take a pre-fuel 15 minutes prior to working out.


Post-Workout:
Keep in mind the first week is exceptionally rough! Expect to be sore and tired: Do not give up! Your body will adapt quickly and in no time you will start seeing some crazy results. You may want to do a few non-P90X workouts prior to starting just to get your body & mind ready.

Recovery:
After an intense P90X or Insanity workout, it is vital to recover the right way. I cannot stress enough how important this is. By adding a recovery drink immediately after your workout, you will significantly decrease the amount of soreness you will experience while your body recovers. Intense exercise will burn off glycogen stores in the muscles which leaves the body without its primary source of energy. The longer you are in this state, the greater the chances your body will panic and may actually breakdown your existing muscle to create more glycogen—the exact opposite of what we are working for! Plus low blood sugar levels in the brain will lead to fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration, depression, etc. The P90X Recovery Drink will replenish your muscles with glycogen, you will not only avoid muscle breakdown, but you will promote muscle growth and keep your energy levels up. The P90X Recovery Drink is a great product and I highly recommend it.

Accountability:
Post your accountability DAILY on the message boards! This is the key to staying motivated. Here is an interesting statistic I’ve noticed over the past couple of threads I’ve been in. Out of all the people who join the thread and commit to the workouts, less than 20% will complete the full 90 day program! But what I found is, of those of post every day they are 90% likely to complete the program and transform their lives.
The message boards and forums are a great way to meet others that are going through exactly what you are and it helps stay accountable and motivated! Your forum buddies will have tips and information that has helped them and could help you as well. You will be doing the same in no time!


So, ready to get started? First step, post your commitment to join the team, and second, add me as a buddy and I'll give you more important information. I look forward to getting to know you and seeing the new you!

BRING IT!!!

Just a little bit about me. I am a 34 y/o mother of one. I didn't gain a lot of weight with my pregnancy, but I gained enough. I have always been "heavy". Never the skinny girl. Well I am changing that. My first program was Insanity, and I talked my husband into doing it with me.

Now we are getting ready to end our first round of P90X and start a hybrid of P90X and Insanity. I have lost almost 20lbs in the last 5 months. The way I feel is amazing! And I know that if I can do this anyone can!!

I am actually getting ready right now to workout with the Hubby now! Friday night is Yoga X night. Better not keep him waiting too long!! emoticon

Coach Ashley

P.S. When you join the group if you could tell us a little bit about who you are and what made you want to make a change. Also what program you will be doing. Try to sign your posts with your real name so we can get to know our teammates better!!

Tonite was yoga X. And boy did I need it after the day I had! Found that I could stretch further than I had ever before. What a great feeling! So ready for bed now though!

Logged my nutrition in MFP. Not a bad day, was a little busy so meals were rushed, but I what I got was good.

Have a great evening y'all!

Hey my name is Aaron. I'm 31 years old, married and have a 3 year old daughter. I had been a smoker on and off throughout college. I decided to healthy and go to the gym. I did that for 10 or so years, until recently I was getting bored about my routine. I needed something totally different...that different was Insanity!

Since starting insanity and now doing P90X I have lost 16 pounds and have gotten stronger.
I plan to finish P90X and then follow it with a hybrid of P90X/Insanity

Tonight was day 81 of P90X...yoga with my wife...who happens to be an awesome coach
Logged my nutrition into MFP...ok day not my best

See ya tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by Brad, Larry, and Rob! Y'all are the best!

Aaron welcome to the message board. Way to go, day 81 is a huge achievement, and you are so close to day 90. Your nutrition may have been a little off yesterday, but just try and make better choices today.

In a little over a week you will be able to say you are a P90X graduate!!

Happy Saturday morning everyone!

Love the exercise in the morning thing - my whole trick for myself. Once the brain turns on it all over for me. Just get up, 2 cups of coffee, strap my shoes on and go before I know what hit me!

Great information coach!

Breakfast: 1/4 cup of oatmeal with 1tbsp of dried dates, Protein Shake.

Lunch will be coming up soon, along with a little mommy time. Nap time for my little one is closing in quickly! emoticon

Had a picnic with my little one today, and then some running around outside, and hide and go seek this afternoon. We had a great time.

I did log all my nutrition in MFP today. I only have one more workout for this round of P90X! WOOT!! Getting really excited to start my hybrid on Tuesday morning!

Awesome job Aaron! You deserve a "break" after all the hard work you've done. You've gotten fantastic results so far.

Just remember during your break if you drop the intensity of your workouts you may need to adjust your calorie intake.

Hey Cyndi,

Sounds like our afternoons are pretty similar. Just got back from grocery shopping X, and now prepping for the weeks dinners and lunches! And you are right definitely, less tempted when I am prepared!

I do have X stretch today though, gonna knock it out in a bit. I'll be posting my 90 day pics as well this evening!

Don't forget to turn those clocks back! And have a great Sunday afternoon! GO TITANS!!
