My goals are to be healthy. Not to say that losing the weight and looking good wasn't a good side effect, but the main goal is to be healthy to be able to do anything and everything I want to do when I want to do it. I have progressed from 212 pounds 5'8" and struggling to do 5 knee pushups to 144 5'8" and doing 10-15 pushups on 4 med balls without blinking an eye.
My fitness goal: Get Healthy
I began my journey at 212 pounds 5'8" and struggling to do 5 knee pushups. I am now at 144 5'8" and doing 10-15 pushups on 4 med balls without blinking an eye. I've also progressed from dysfunctional More ...
I began my journey at 212 pounds 5'8" and struggling to do 5 knee pushups. I am now at 144 5'8" and doing 10-15 pushups on 4 med balls without blinking an eye. I've also progressed from dysfunctional knees (my docs definition of my knee condition) and no way can I lunge, jump or squat to doing Insanity and Asylum Vol. 1&2.
When I look back at where I was not only is there a visual difference, but a health difference. When I started, everything was a struggle. Now I push to hit the point of struggle. Now saying that I have to also say I have always been happy with me. I was unhappy with how I felt and to some extent, how I looked, but I never once had a negative thought about myself. I hated that I was at a size 16, more on principle then on how I looked.
I began P90x in May of 2009. At this time, my husband was on his third deployment to Iraq and it was a very difficult deployment for him and he was losing weight. He called me and said he was at 218. My only thought was, ‘I can’t weight more than my husband does.’ A friend of mine was having the same feelings and she ordered P90x. I’d seen it on TV, but just knew I wouldn’t be able to do it because of my knees. But, what the heck, she owned it now. Why not give it a try. After working out with her for 2 months and losing 15 pounds, I was hooked. I bought my own copy and kept working. When my husband came home I was at 196 and a size 12. I was so excited. I was having so much fun , I kept going. From P90x a few more times to P90x+, to P90x2. Before I started P90x2 in 2011, I realized I needed to look at my diet more closely, because I just wasn’t moving. I was stuck at 185. I did a major revamp on my diet and life style and with the changes and P90x2 I dropped to 175. Then, with the improvements in my knees I decided to give Insanity and Asylum a try. 3 months later and I was flying. Then I gave my body a break and did Rev Abs, then cranked it back up with Asylum Vol. 2. By that point I was at a stable 155. As the new year approached I decided what the heck, let’s try the Ultimate Reset. I went through the Reset with a few cheats in the latter part of week 2 and week 3 and went down another 15 pounds. I was shocked and feeling great.
Well to date, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. No falling asleep on my new and more amazing future.
