P90X Lean Program Done

P90X Lean Program Done!!!

I can finally say I have finished the Lean Program!!!  Last night I did my Cardio X and today I did Yoga X.  Tomorrow is rest day and the Last day of this program!!!!  Whoohoo!!!

I have definitely noticed a change in how I feel and how much more I am able to do.  In the beginning of these workouts I could barely do the exercises and now I can do them all with ease. 

I have noticed a difference in the way my clothes fit especially in the mid section.  My measurements are basically the same as the October 16th post. I just needed to finish the program.

I now will continue on and go into the Classic Version of P90X which I know will be more work.  This Classic Version includes Plyometrics which is definitely harder than the Cardio X workout.

Like I’ve said before this is a “Lifestyle Change” for me so, I will continue to press play.
I may miss a day here or there but I’ll just continue on where I left off.

A lot of people start P90X and say it’s too hard or miss days and quit.  You’d be amazed what our bodies can do over time with persistence.  Anything is possible.

Have a Wonderful Sunday!!

P90X day 88

Well I’ve definitely be slacking near the end here.  I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and family and by the time the day is over and I’ve been too tired to work out.  But I haven’t quit I just missed a couple days.

We went to the Texas State Fair on Thursday and had friends over for dinner on Friday night.  As crazy as it sounds I hit play at 10:30 Friday night and did my Kenpo X.  I didn’t have to work today so, right after the Kenpo I did the Stretch X workout.  I went to bed feeling great and glad I got those workouts in.

Tonight I will be doing Cardio X and some time tomorrow will be my Last Yoga X for the Lean Program.  So Tomorrow I will be done with my 90 day, P90X Lean Program, Journey!!!! Whoohoo!!!

I plan on moving right into the Classic Version which will be harder.  I am glad I did the Lean Version first to prepare me for the Classic. 

I can’t say my diet has been great.  So I’m going to work harder on that during these 90 days.  I’m not trying to lose a whole lot of weight.  I’m just want to tone and I know clean eating has a lot to do with that. 

I have become a Coach so if anyone is interested in shakeology, working out or just needing incentive you can email me at

P90X five more days

Yoga and Core Synergistics done!!! I did my Yoga X last night and Core tonight.  I am so anxious to start this next version of P90X, which is the Classic Version.  I miss the Leg and back workout which I haven’t done in six weeks.  The  Kenpo, Cardio and Yoga do work the legs. But I don’t know why they took this workout out of the lean program so early.

 In Five days I can say "I have finished the P90X Lean Program with weight and inches lost!!” Then I’m moving On to the Classic Version with Plyometrics.  I also plan on upping my weight on the arm, chest & back workouts.  I’m going to push it this time.  So by summer I’ll be ready for my next Cruise!!

Now I’m off to watch biggest loser!! I love that show!! Then, X factor.

P90X one week left

I’m on day 83 of this Journey with only one week left!!  I almost quit the Lean Version and went straight into Classic.  But after some thought and advice from my coach I decided to finish it out.  Then I could say I did the 90 days J

My reason for starting P90X is because I love cruises. We went on a Caribbean cruise last year and I felt fat and out of shape. I wanted to tone and feel healthy again.

In doing this P90X lean program I have seen so much improvement and feel better than I have felt in a long time. My body can do things that I never felt were possible. In the beginning I wasn’t able to do most of the workouts. But day by day, week by week, month by month I was able to do more and more. I can do them all now!!! So I am ready to move onto the Classic Version.

I must also add that I am a 55 year old grandma and with the will and determination anything is possible. A lot of people say P90X is hard and it is in the beginning but with hard work and determination it can be done!

I love P90X it has become a lifestyle change for me. I also love my daily Shakeology. This has been a great addition to my daily diet. I continue to try and eat clean and have my Chocolate Shakeology daily!

Here are my measurements from the beginning. It has been an awesome Journey!!

July 2011 --- October 2011

Hip 39 --- Hip 37.5

Waist 37 --- Waist

Bust 38 --- Bust 37

Upper Leg 22.5 --- Upper Leg 21.5

Upper Arm 13 --- Upper Arm 12

Weight 154 --- Weight 147

Through this wonderful experience I have chose to become a Beachbody Coach. If you have any questions you may send me a private message at

P90X Journey one more week!!!

Well here it is Saturday.  I have slacked some this week but I still got all my workouts in.  I did my Yoga X on Wednesday and then Core Synergistics on Thursday.  Today I will be doing Kenpo X. 

Next week will be my Recovery Phase.  Then I’m done!!! I can say I have finished P90X Lean!!! Yea Me!!!

I know I have lost weight and inches.  I have toned a little.  I feel the classic version will do more on gaining muscle and toning which I plan on starting next. 

Like I said before this is a lifestyle change.  I’m not perfect, I may miss some days, I may not eat clean all the time but I know its working and I will continue on this Journey.  Thanks to all who have followed me and encouraged me.  It has helped me to continue!!!

I’m off to LegoLand in Grapevine TX with my son and grandson on this beautiful day!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

P90X day 80

Yesterday I did Back, Biceps with Ab Ripper X. I used the band instead of the pull up bar in this workout. That seems to work best for me since I can’t do one pull up without using the chair. 
I used the 10lb weights on the majority of the weighted exercises, but on a few I used 8lbs, with the exception of the seated shoulder flys I am still only using 5lbs for that one.

Ab Ripper X was a great workout. I can do all eleven moves, twenty five reps, making it a total of 339 moves.

I ate pretty clean yesterday. For breakfast I had my shakeology with peanut butter, lunch was salad and chicken. Then for dinner I had my favorite bean burritos.

Today is Yoga X.  As of today I have ten more days. Then I will have completed my Lean Version of P90X.

Have a Great Week!!

P90X day 78 & 79 done!

Friday I did my Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab Ripper X workout.  Although the pushups in this workout have gotten easier and I am able to do more I still dislike it very much.  That could be why my arms are not as defined as they should be.  I think I give up to soon. 

The Ab Ripper X  workout is great I am able to do all the moves without modifying and I know it’s working.

Today I did Cardio X.  This is a great Cardio workout and only 45 minutes long.  I was able to work up a great sweat and had a feeling of accomplishment.

I am sticking with the program to the end but I just don’t understand why they don’t have the legs & back workout for the last six weeks of the Lean Program.   I miss it and can feel the difference in my legs.  I’m anxious to start the Classic Program in 1 ½ weeks. J

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

P90X day 77 Kenpo X

I am 77 days into my 90 day Journey.  I have 13 days left.  How time flies when you’re having fun!!!

After going on a cruise this summer, I didn’t like the way I felt or the way I looked.   My goal was to eat clean and healthy and too tone.  I feel I have done that and the weight loss is good too.   I have lost 8lbs since I started.  I haven’t actually measured inches lost yet but I can feel a difference in the way my clothes are fitting. 

Tonight was KenpoX.  I love Kenpo It’s a good cardio workout and goes by pretty fast!!  This workout seem easy to me now.  Looking at the P90X “Classic Program” I’m glad to see that I’ll continue to do Kenpo weekly when I finish this journey and go on to my next one.

I ate clean today.  I didn’t eat a lot which probably is not advised but...

I didn’t eat breakfast. L   For lunch I had my shakeology mixed with natural peanut butter and a banana.  Then, dinner was two of my favorite black bean burritos with morning star sausage, garlic, onion, rotel tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, some cumin and cayenne, sea salt & pepper.

I was craving chips at about 10:00 pm.  Even though they are natural chips I still decided against them!  I’m sure the wine made up for it though.

I have rest or Stretch tomorrow.  I might just start week 12.

Tomorrows Hump day, hope everyone’s having a great week!!

P90X Yoga X

Yoga X week eleven is done.  This was such a great workout this morning!! I never thought I’d be saying that on my first week or three weeks into P90X.   Yoga is a long ninety minute workout but it has gotten so easy.  I don’t need to look at the TV when doing it.  Tony explains everything in detail.  It’s like having your own coach in your workout room or living room.

I’ve even missed two days of working out this week and am able to do all the Yoga moves without modifying. J  I just started up where I left off. 

Believing in this P90X workout and knowing that even if I miss a day I will continue on makes me confident in this lifestyle change!

I do need to work on my eating habits.  I tend to eat clean during the week but on weekends when getting together with friends and family it’s difficult not to cheat.  

Tomorrow will be Core Synergistics!!

Have a Great weekend everyone!!!
