Kempo X from P90X, Eat my shorts!

Man I feel fantastic! Let me tell you why :)

A year and half ago I bought my husband the P90X program and would NEVER have attempted this very scary workout. I mean, something that causes such a quick transformation must have some serious repercussions afterwards. Yikes! I was vowing to never make myself go through that torture.

Well, I have made myself start working out lately and have been attending turbo kick and zumba classes when I can. I believe I have made it to 5 classes now.

Monday I did Zumba and it was a weak workout! I mean I did sweat but Im crazy; When I work out I want to feel like I am gonna fall over when Im done. Zumba just cant do that for me.
I went to Zumba because I couldnt go to Turbo Kick because I had to work.

Tuesday I couldnt go to Turbo Kick because my husband worked late and Tuesdays schedule for us is super busy: School, Gymnastics, dinner, Soccer, Swimming. Turbo class overlaps gymnastics and dinner but is across town. I cant go if hes working so I didnt go.

Wednesdays I usually go to Turbo Kick at 5:30 but we had Cinco De Mayo dinner plans so I didnt go today either...

So instead of missing another workout, I worked out at home!! I loved it too! Hubby and Little T (daughter) worked out with me too. Mister C (son) started but quit 20 minutes in.

So heres why Im proud. I did the Kempo X from the P90X series and I ROCKED THE HOUSE! I kept up with the video and felt strong and amazingly powerful. I was always so scared to do this workout but I did it and did it well!

I feel just awesome right now :)

Have any of you done the P90X?

Love and Health,


  1. I have never done it but I have read about it on several blogs and am intrigued. Maybe when my fracture heals I will check it out. My butt needs some kicking.

  2. I have never done it either. I have some interest in trying it cause I always love a challenge but with my wedding coming up money is a little tight and that program is a bit pricey. Anyway, congrats on the good workout!

  3. Yes, I've heard of P90X! :-) I finished my first round of P90X a couple of weeks ago. I can honestly say I'm in the best shape of my life after P90X. You can see my results from the program on this post on my blog-

    P90X Results

    I just started another round of P90X this past following Sunday. I'm doing P90X with my wife this time (this is her first time doing P90X).

    Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about the program!

  4. Karen, I am sorry to hear about your injury. Hopefully you are back at 100% soon!

    Erica, I didnt realize you had a wedding coming up! Congrats girl :)

    Jonathan, Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate you allowing me to reach out to you if I have questions. I might just do that. Can you tell me which circuit you completed? I am thinking Lean for me!

    Love and Health,


  5. No problem! Don't hesitate to ask as many questions as you have about P90X!

    I just completed the Classic version. It's really a great version for anybody to do. If you're looking to get toned and to just lose weight, then you would use lower weight and do more reps per exercise (about 10-15 reps). If you're looking to build muscle, than you'd use higher weight and try to do 8-10 reps per exercises.

    Keep me updated on what you decide and how you do with the program. It is a tough program...but you've just got to do your best and you'll improve with time.
