I have completed my FIRST 90 days of P90X! I feel so accomplished to make that statement because I am also making a validation that I am still doing the workouts. It was tough! Some days I would ask why am I torturing myself. The workouts are still a challenge but you do notice you can do more and that you are doing it better. I am seeing more definition and that also pushes you to continue. I played around with the program a bit and did several weeks of doubles. Doubles was rough and not for the faint of heart. Doubles can also give you a sense of burnout too. Anyone interested in the program I would say go ahead and start because you can and will master the moves. I will not guarantee you will be ripped and cut your first 90 days, but you will be new and improved. I have no regrets and feel stronger and better from all the struggles and sweating. Keep in mind also, hydration and clean eating are imperative to progress and performance, because gang, this is NO JOKE! It's the X! P90X!

Tonight all the excitement of fashion will be in the air and retailers around the nation offer special deals to shoppers that cannot be in NYC. I can remember buying clothes year after year and season after season. I look back at the money wasted and all the donations not to mention precious time wasted. What makes one want to follow a trend? I think for me it was a feeling of insecurity. I no longer follow trends. Now don't get me wrong, I love fashion and enjoy shopping, but if I am going to spend my money it will be an investment. I also like to warn of the aging effect that comes along with certain trends. Not only should we watch our clothing but watch out for those accessories too ladies! Trends are fun and can put a punch in your wardrobe but never forget you can be adding 10 years or more to your look. Have fun, enjoy the new collections, and keep it simple. You are not defined by one item in your closet.
