So I bet you are wondering what's going on with P90X? Well we are still going, almost at the end of week 11, (13 weeks total.). Guy and I are doing great, he is down about 19 lbs and I am down just about 17 lbs, but it's not just the weight, it's our shapes that are better, and newly formed muscles, his are better then mine because he using heavier weight. But I don't want to be all jacked up, toned is fine for me.
We are also sticking to a good diet. It's been good doing this together because we are really supporting each other and staying motivated. I will admit in the middle, around week 7-8 we both got a little tired and frustrated. We were at a weight plateau and I was definitely mad about working out, but we pushed through and here we are in the home stretch doing great.
I can even button my O'Neill jeans that I LOVE and haven't worn in years....since 2008! The are still a tiny bit tight and because they are low rise I do have a slight muffin top situation going on, but I know if I keep going i will rocking them by labor day hopefully.
I cleaned out my linen closet earlier in the week and came across an almost full bottle of 'Love Handler' by Bliss. Bonus! I started using it on my muffin top region and there is definitely some zinging cooling stuff going on in that gel. Some of you may scoff and think I am wasting my time, but I already have it so why let it go to waste? Will keep you posted on what I think.
As for my final reveal, I have mixed emotions about actually posting my before and after pics. I am proud of my work, but still embarrassed about my pre-P90X shape.
Have a wonderful day. Xoxo -Mellycup
