#16 Finish a Full Cycle of P90X: Beginnings and Return of the Weekly Fatass

Goal number 16 on my 30 Before 30 list is to finish a full cycle of P90X. For those of you who don’t know, P90X is a video workout program that promises to get you all ripped and stuff after 90 days. It’s hard work. I made a first attempt at it a few months ago and only got through about 40 days. This time, I’m going to DO IT–

Which means that I’m going to need my blog to keep me accountable… and that means the return of the Weekly Fatass. I know you all are excited.

The Plan

I will begin my quest on Tuesday, July 13. Why that day? I don’t know. Tuesday sounded like a good day. Also, that means that my weekly “day off” (the one day out of 7 when I can opt to either do nothing or do the stretch DVD) will be on Mondays, and everyone needs a little help on Mondays.

Each Tuesday following, I will post my weekly progress here, on teh blogg. P90X suggests taking pictures to compare with your day 0 pictures at day 30, day 60, and day 90 so that you can see your progress. My day 0 pictures will never see the light of day, so I’m not posting day 30, 60, and 90 with the comparisons unless this really works and I can point and laugh at my former self and say, “You flabby flab. I will pump YOU UP!”

Stay tuned for Tuesday!

    Good luck! I'm just trying the “satisfy your cravings with art instead of crap” diet. I'll keep you posted! YOU ARE VERY FUNNY by the way!

  • Good luck. That program looks like way to much work.

    I broke down and bought The Wave – http://www.thefirmwave.com/

    This is more my style. Now if I can just heal my foot I can get back into doing this. I keep starting and stopping. I really need to just start.

  • Good luck! We will be cheering you on.

    Good Luck! My husband is doing P90x right now and did really well for 4 weeks before he fell off the wagon last week. He talks incessantly about that Tony guy, lol! Are you going for the “classic” or the “lean”?

  • I'm doing the classic. I wanna be RIPPED! Haha, actually, I read that there's not a huge difference between the classic and the lean, and that unless you're taking steroids or something, you're not going to get as ripped as a man anyway, so I'm not scared. 😉

    Best of luck! As my husband parrots all the time: do your best, leave the rest. :p
