My P90X Journey

I ordered P90X last week and I finally got it in the mail this week.  Not going to lie, I was extremely pumped about trying the new version out.  I went to my Mom's house this week so my sister could take my measurements and pictures, then we were all planning on going to dinner together.

So, I put on my bathing suit and stood in front of a wall and had my sister take the pictures.  I am not quite sure what I was expecting, but the pictures were much worse than I ever imagined.  How in the world does someone let themselves go this far?  I have been putting off "being healthy" for too long.  Seems like everyday I am telling myself, "I'll start tomorrow" and tomorrow never comes.  I suppose taking these pictures really lit a fire and I feel more motivated than ever.  I just cannot do this to myself any longer.  That night, rather than going out to dinner, I went home and cooked a healthy dinner for myself. 

Currently, I am only on day two of P90X, but I feel very optimistic about the program.  I am tracking what I eat and trying very hard to stay away from all those delicious carbohydrates.  I am going to also try to blog more often because I really need to keep myself accountable.  I am not going to wait for tomorrow any longer....today is the day :)
