    Has anyone had any experience with the P90X workout plan? I was naturally immediately suspicious of it because it is sold in an infomercial, but I have two not-at-all-crazy friends who have used it and swear it works, and there are pretty positive reviews online. The caveat seems to be that you have to have the stones to stick with it, which is true of pretty much any program. The concept appeals to me because it's not expensive and you can do it at home with no equipment other than a resistance band and some dumbbells.

    Anyone have an opinion?

    This seems like a pretty good article that talks about what to expect.

    My friend, who I've worked out with in the past and has a solid knowledge base, has it. He's only done the first DVD, but says it's promising. It was recommended to him by friends who had success with it.

    You'll need to buy some equipment (nothing major, though) to do some of the workouts, it appears.

    EDIT: It sounds pretty intense. A doctor's visit before starting this is a good idea.

    Total. What you have is right.

    So I didnt' do my work out DVD. I ended up stumbling somehow into a Commando Krav Maga 1on1 class instead today. I have the strangest luck it seems. I got a workout out of it, and had my ass thoroughly kicked.

    Sorry for checking in so late, Udog. Ok:

    Thursday: Magnificent, finally tried running my entire night route to see how long it really takes me (I usually only go 4/5 of the way and then warm down)- 45 minutes (counting probably 2 minutes stopping for shoelaces and to cross the street). Felt good, though my feet hurt.
    Friday: Nothing, cheat on eating a little (oh dim sum fried goodness), but overall not too bad.
    Saturday: Tired, some bicycling to barely make my minimum. (Bike chain only slips twice, yay.)
    Sunday: Awful, home stress getting to me. Binge on my go-to stress foods: half a packet of unsalted saltines, crackers, salty canned soups, etc. Which brings me a total of one more cheat last week.

    Monday: Three hour hike! Only meant it to be two hours, but I got a little lost. Felt rather cathartic, so I still enjoyed it (plus I knew I would be all cooped inside for the storm). Saw a deer and a squirrel with a giant tail in the light so that it looked quite blue. Eating = great.
    Tuesday: It's raining buckets. Eating = good.

    I tried your vegetable-fruit-nut smoothie recipe, with frozen banana and pineapple, romaine lettuce (the dark green outer parts that no one ever wants), cashews and a touch of orange juice. It was tasty and spring green. (The version with spring mix? Not so tasty or appetizingly colored.)

    I'm with you Poppy. Too many people... looking. And, to be honest, too many distractions. All it takes is a shiny bauble or a vague spare thought and my jog becomes a walking crawl as I contemplate the petals of a flower or eternity gets shorter.

    Congratulations! The beginning to exercise part is the hardest. Now you're really into the habit, it'll feel good continuing.

    I've lost 2 (not counting the five pounds I gained and lost due to vacation time :P), which brings me to an average of a third of a pound a week.

However, I think maybe I have pneumonia - coughing all night, can't breathe, losing my voice by the end of the day, but not really horrible enough to warrant making 3 hours of sub plans a night. I exercised two days last week. This is bad! I could've at least done a stretching video or something! Sorry for the late posting - it was Thanksgiving today, so we had the family here most of the weekend.
    I forgot, you're Canadian. :P If you're not feeling well, fidelia, you better not push it- go see a doctor, asap! (That universal health care's gotta be good for something.)

    Thanks Colors! The only problem with universal health care is that it means that health care is accessible to everyone and therefore there are not enough doctors to go around! Sometimes it takes a week or two to get in...

    EffEmmW (I got lazy at the end) - My boyfriend and about five of his friends did P90X. He lost about 20 pounds and loved it. I find the guy annoying and not the best trainer I've seen, but the exercises are good and it certainly will kick your butt. They also have a diet plan included with it.

    I think MacGuffin did it, ask him, I don't know much about it. As far as programs go there are a lot of solid programs around on the net. I could point you in the right direction if you give me some info on goals, equipment etc.
