So here I am.

So here I am. Yet another attempt at "getting healthy". You name it, I've probably tried it. So how did a morning radio DJ and a friend convince me that P90x was finally the solution I've been looking for? Good Question. Maybe its that group mentality? I'll let you know once I figure it out. Oh, and did I mention? I'm a quitter too. I'm awesome at the 3-day effort. Heck. Maybe even a week. And if I'm feeling extra motivated, I'll maybe make it 3 whole weeks. So what is it about P90x that is going to be different?

I've decided that I'm going to drownd myself in accountability this time. First things first - for the first time in my technology surrounded life, I'm going to BLOG my experience. And you know what? I'm tired of quitting... which really might be more of a combination of being too lazy to try and being afraid of failure. Maybe its easier to just quit than to try and fail? But... I can't even give myself the chance to succeed without finally following through on something. It is only 90 days of my life... and actually, its 12 weeks of a 7 day program, so only 84 days. Heck, I finished college when there was no end in sight. Why not P90x? Finally. I'm making a decision to finish.

So enough of the emotional blah blah blah reasons to do P90x. Straight up. I want to look good in my swimsuit dammit. I'm in my twenties and I've never felt great in a suit and now I want to. High 5 to vanity. I've never been super fat - but the last few years... I think I've had reverse body image issues... you know, where you look in the mirror and think "Not Bad" and then you see a picture of yourself and think "Yikes! Is that me?".

I've got my DVD's, my manuals, and no doubt some unflattering pictures to take tonight. I'll report back soon.


  1. Great first entry! When you're reading a blog, nodding your head as you go along, and laughing, you know it's a good read. This is going to be GREAT! It is only 90 days or 84 or just not that long. Up high for vanity for sure! Operation, get through weekend one for you & two for me has just started. Good luck on your mission soldier & report back. Any sign of danger, call in for backup ASAP! Secrest Out!

  2. Haha! Love it! Let's be honest...we are all in it to look good in a bikini in the end! Good luck, and can't wait to read about your progress! Now I really want to start P90X!
