ARE YOU READY TO ENGAGE YOURSELF FOR 90 DAYS?

Then you are in the right place! Throw away all excuses and doubts! Instead decide to make a change! Commit to that change! Continue to challenge yourself to succeed! You can do this. I am here to help you along the way. So dig deep and together we will cross the finish line!

You may be new to the program or someone that has had to restart for some reason or another. You may have already started. It doesn't matter, all are welcome! Just come prepared to be engaged and challenged! We may all be here for different reasons, but one thing is for certain and that is that we are all in this together.

PLEASE READ!!

Nutrition: 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. It plays a key role in the success of this program. If you want to see great results you need to spend some time getting comfortable with your nutrition. Over time you will learn new eating habits that you can carry with you for the rest of your life.

Where You're At: Make sure you document where you currently are. You will flip out at the end of 90 days when you get the results.

•Take your Measurements
•Take your before & after pictures
•Take the fit test


Track your progress: Write down everything! Set a goal each week to improve and push yourself. Even if you only improve a small amount, push yourself and you'll be surprised at what you can really do. Have a plan for your diet and follow it. Share your results with the other members. Now is not the time to be shy. The support that you will get in this group will blow your mind. Reach out to me if you are having trouble with anything. I will be here to guide you through the end.

Pre Workout: Ensure you have enough fuel to get the intensity during your workouts. A pre-workout meal an hour or so before your workout is very important. But make sure not to eat right before you workout. These routines are intense and you could end up loosing it if you workout to soon after eating. Shakeology is a good way to fill up the tank before a good workout! Added bonus, it taste awesome and its good for you!

If you workout first thing in the morning you might want to skip eating and take a pre-fuel 15 minutes prior to working out. If you do make sure you get your recovery in after the workout and then EAT something within 30 - 45 minutes. You need to fuel your body!

Post Workout: One of the most important part of any exercise routine is a recovery drink. I cannot stress 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 recovering from your workouts. Plus it replaces vital nutrients that you burned during your workout and prevents muscle damage. The P90X Recovery Drink is a very good product and I highly recommend it.

Keep in mind the first week is rough! Expect to be sore and tired. Do not give up your body will adapt very quickly and in no time you will start seeing results. It's very important to stay strong durring the beginning.

Lastly post your Accountability Daily. The message boards are a great way to meet others that are going through what you are going through and it helps stay accountable and motivated!

I look forward to getting to know you.

BRING IT!

I'm on day two of my 5th round of P90X. I must say that every time that I do this program, it's just like the first time. I'm looking forward to feeling the buen and findinga new level of respect for all this program can do for me. Tonight was Plyometrics and boy are my buns burning!!! Looking forward to tomorrow.

I got all me shopping done and prep for the week to come. I am going to have to get used to eating so much again. Boy if anyone ever tells you that "diet" means that you go hungry, smack them and let them see this.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting some new people here and bringing it with you all the way for the next 90 days!!!

Come one and all. We can do this together.

James

Hey, James! Still in the second recovery week of P90X. This is sort of round two for me because I got through the first two months last year at this same time, then got sidetracked by a trip to Disney World. No such trip this time emoticon

Thanks for jumping in!! I read a quote today that I've seen in the past but I felt compelled to post it today. I think it speaks to your dedication...

"Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss in enthusiasm." Winston Churchill

Keep pushing forward. Success will come. Not that you had any kind of failure, but that you have decided to stick with it and see it through. Great job. Lets do this!!

James
