What Was I Thinking?

Exercise and I are not on good terms. We have a mutual understanding....we ignore each other and we are both happy.


This relationship was working just fine and dandy for the two of us....until....

A deal was cut. A slimy, sneaky, make-me-crazy deal.

And I blame it all on this:


Have you ever heard of this madness? It is an insane, pathetically hard workout program that is supposed to rip you into beach body perfection in 90 days. It is a psychotic mix of cardio, weight training, and yoga. Insanity, I tell ya, pure insanity.

Kirk decided to jump on the P90X train when some friends at work did. (I gave him my speech about jumping off bridges just because his friends do, but he didn't listen). He asked me nicely to do the program with him, and I chuckled rather loudly in his face, then gently reminded him of the fact that exercise and I are not on speaking terms.

Then it happened. He pulled the card that makes me turn to mush. He busted out a vacation to the sunny beaches of Mexico.

He said that if I finish this program with him, then my ticket to Mexico will be ready and waiting. And the icing on the cake is that apparently I'll also look good in a bathing suit if I do the program. Yah....we'll see about that last part, but just the thought of Mexico was enough to make my eyes swim.

So we shook on it, and for the past 4 nights I have subjected my body to the most horrendous display of muscle torture known to man. And I hurt. Everywhere.

I can't even sit down without grimacing.

But I just keep thinking...Mexico, Mexico, Mexico.

Kirk seems to think that once I go through the whole 90 days that I will be addicted to exercise and want to keep going.

I think I chuckled louder at that comment than the first one.

Haha...of all of the programs out there and he picks the absolute hardest one. Per my suggestions and wishes, my husband surprised me with a couple of sets back in the summer. Turbo Jam and Slim in 6. Turbo Jam is awesome and is actually a lot of fun. Maybe he'll let you purchase one of those and complete that one. But regardless...good luck. I'm sure that you'll go well.

Mexico, Mexico, Mexico. I'd be tempted too...

Good luck. I hear Ben Gay works for sore muscles, but I bet a pina colada smells much better. ;)

STOP IT! I have been obsessing about this for weeks now. Take before and after pics. I may want to order it.

On the other hand, if you ditch it within 12 days, do a bloggy giveaway and pick me.

I've heard so many good things about this one! Let us know how it goes. I am not on speaking terms with exercise right now. Who has time? :)

Adam and I actually thought about doing this too! We opted for the gym though. Let us know the results!

I hope you can do it! I'm doing good to get to the gym 2 days a week.
