It's time to get serious....

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, after careful consideration, I've ordered myself the infamous Beachbody's P90X Extreme Home Fitness with Tim Horton.



If you are interested in more details, please see their official site.

According to various site, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, and Sheryl Crow all supposedly use this, and as you all know, they are total hot tamales. Priced at $140, P90X is by FAR the most expensive workout DVDs I've ever purchased. After I told my friends/families that I got P90X, EVERY SINGLE ONE of them laughed in my face. "Yeah FREAKIN' right! Professional atheletes can't even do that!" was the most common response I got.

I was intrigued b/c the workout looked so serious, I really want to be toned and buff. I don't want to be really skinny, I just don't want my body to jiggle for 5 secs after I stopped moving. However, I AM prepared for the fact that I won't be able to finish the workout, since they are so physically demanding. I think I might need to use the "30 day mondy back guarantee". LOL!

Anyways, I ordered it yesterday on Beachbody.com, and it's already shipped out. I'm so anxious for its arrival. I will let you guys know after I tried it out.

Also, I know a lot of you are waiting for my reviews and FOTDs with the new producs, but I havnen't been out in 5 days, LOL! I don't feel like doing makeup when I'm just staying at home. I've been feeling very uninspired lately, every look I do seems to be unoriginal. I'm looking at makeup pics online to find some inspirations, so please be patient in the mean time.

I am also painting my living room right now. I chose this taupe-y color, but I don't why it looks PINK on my wall..... I'm worried.

Anyways, I hope you all have a great day! Peace out!

I've never heard of that dvd, but good luck with it. I'm doing the work outs on self.com and the ones jillian from biggest loser put out. The hardest part is to keep doing it during the week, once you get that down, you'll see results on whatever work out your own. even sweating with the oldies. hee hee. go richard simons!

Lily said...

ooh, i've never heard of that workout, but it sounds intense! let us know how it goes... and if you get results! cuz then i might have to get on the hype too! lol. and i wanna see your living room! don't you just hate it when you pick a color on paper and it comes out looking SO different on the wall?

bunee said...

Hah... good luck with that. If you were dying with the other dvd's you bought, you better prepare a coffin before you try this one. P90X was designed for people who are ALREADY in shape, not for people who are trying to get in shape.

What you should do is order P90 (power 90) first and complete THAT workout AND THEN, and only then, move on to P90X.

Oh my friend just started those dvds! Poor girl is in massive pain everyday, but she seems to have gained some muscle. Good luck!

Rin said...

I can't wait to see what you say about the workout... I'm trying to lose some weight and I really need to tone up a bit too!

Kim said...

I just ordered this for my bf and it does look a bit scary. However, if you start slow with realistic expectations you should be breezing through it in no time!

HEy,
good for you!
I have this workout DVD. It does work but you can't skip a day. Can't can't can't.

I haven't been able to work out since the moving day and doing summer classes. It didn't take 3 months to see the difference.

good luck girl!

Viv said...

I've been doing this for a month or so now and I'm beginning to see my arms become more toner. Even my bf's getting scared lol. I lost a few inches, too. It is intense, especially in the beginning, but don't force yourself to do everything perfectly. I remember i was super sore for my first 3 workouts (even sitting to pee hurt!), but I pushed through it. Also, if you wanna see fast results, you have to constantly eat right (which i'm not really following lol). Anyways, if you have any questions, go ahead and message me. Good luck!

Dee said...

That's too expensive for me. I'd rather run on the track and spend 3 hours at the gym, lol. Goodluck with the workout. I know you can do it! You should try bikram yoga Tao. That's a major workout too!

the p90x is no joke. it is very hard but dont push your self to do as many counts and stuff that they do on the dvds you are a beginner so pace your self. dont over work your self in the first week or it will be very easy to just up and quit it trust me i did. it is a wonderful work out set. you will do great.

Emilita said...

These tapes work! A friend of mine who is newly dedicated to working out (two years ago he was out of shape and 30 lbs heavier) has really defined his body with P90x. I started doing them too -- not with the same frequency -- and I have seen some difference.

Even though they are very vigorous, the instructor is very upbeat and makes you want to continue. I love the ab workouts -- they leave me really sore a day or two later, but are fun, fast paced and effective.

Best of luck. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

As CEO of Beachbody, if I ever wanted someone to have a good experience it's now!

P90X works, if you do it. (that's the ctach)

It's fitness, put into a clear 90 day program. Takes about an hour a day. DON'T try to "bring it" all in the first week. Use week one to get used to the routine. But week two, it's go time.

Good luck, and yes, if you don't like it, please get your money back. That's the way it should be.

I'm so excited for you, Tao! P90X works! I love it! I was in pain for the first week, but now, 4 weeks into it--bringing it hard--I am addicted. I feel great and my body is rock hard.

OMG! Tao! I'm so happy for you!

I was just talking about this with my best friend (she wants to get toned and fit again after having her baby) and she's been at it for a little over a week now and she said it has already done wonders for her. If you want to share your experience and get more info. from her I can give you her e-mail address.

Don't let anyone discourage you or say that "it's too hard". I mean come on, my friend just pushed out her 8lbs baby boy and SHE IS DOING THE P90X AND SEEING RESULTS.

Stay motivated and always be positive!

Much love to you and take care, Tao!<3
