So I'm thinking I will post my P90X results a little early. I found out yesterday during a Dr.'s visit that my abdomen muscles are herniated (lovely right? This was caused by carrying my babies out and very low) and I might need surgery to repair them. I will find out soon the severity and what steps will need to be taken...but for now I'm not allowed to any ab specific work, such as Ab Ripper X (one of my faves too!) So I figure these last pictures I took (a little after 60 days into P90X) will show my best results (so far in that area). In a way it's nice to know now why my stomach area hasn't been responding to these workouts as well as I'd hoped.
I'm a work in progress, but I'm very excited about the changes I've already seen in my body by taking The Beachbody Challenge (Shakeology + a Beachbody program of your choice...P90X in this case.) I will continue using P90X until the 90 days are over (just a few more days), but will omit Ab Ripper X.
This journey has been an amazing one! Being able to change my health in a big way, and then in turn help others...I love it and it's been one of the best things I've ever done in my life!! I feel so much healthier and stronger. I feel so much more positive every day and able to adapt to stressful situations. And I'm a lot more fun as a mom! :D I wrestle and play with my son now and I'm able to go to the park and run around with him without feeling worn out. I thought to myself the other day while running around with him that I feel 15 again...I turn 28 this year! I love the energy, strength, stamina, etc... that challenging exercise and great nutrition have done for my body these last 3 months. I love the feeling I get during and after my workouts...I can't even explain it completely. It's a feeling of radiating energy and peace. It is so true what Tony Horton says: "Take care of your body and it will take care of you!" I will continue taking care of my body with these challenging workouts, drinking my Shakeology daily and eating well, and I look forward to seeing even more positive results in my body and in my life!
