P-90X & Weight Watchers - A Blog About Not Getting Gooey.
Within about 5 days after giving birth, I lost 30 pounds. The next 20 shlopped off at about 1/10 of a pound per month. I'm exaggerating, who me? But at the one year post pregnancy mark my body did something amazing and dropped 10 pounds for no reason. I'm sure it's got something to do with hormone balance shmalance, and if I googled it I'd find some scientific reason for why my body was able to drop 10 pounds suddenly while I gorged myself with 1 year old birthday cake across the entire month of February. Who's complaining? Not me.
Every morning, Sarah and I get up at 5:30am to do a workout. I thought it was going to kill me to lose those extra hours of sleep in the morning. I was sure the twins would steam roll over me by mid afternoon, I'd be so exhausted. But miraculously, the opposite is happening. I have so much more energy during the day. It's seriously a miracle.
So if you've ever thought about doing the P90X workouts, do them. Tony, the trainer, is a little bit off his rocker and talks in all these weird voices that creep me out a bit, but he says some funny things too. In one of the workouts he talks about how he's 45 years old and does not want to get old and gooey. For whatever reason, that gooey word has stuck with me and it's motivating me to move forward every morning.
Here's a video of my boy Tony in action. Every morning is a different workout routine so you don't get bored. And I'll look for some videos where he uses some of his weird voices so we can all psycho analyze him. I think when people use creepy different voices, ala baby talk, they're hiding what they really want to say. But I have to wait until this workout series is over before I rip into my trainer's mental health. Cause I'm the one clinging onto the final 10 (and lying about it cause it's really 13) pounds like a security blanket.
As Tony likes to say at the end of each workout video, keep pressing play...
And as my daughter Kate Spencer would say, "bah(bye) goo"...
