Alright kiddos, how is everyone doing today? Can you believe it’s almost 2014? WHAT? It blows my mind. I don’t really feel ready?
But I can’t complain- I have a lot, a lot to look forward to this upcoming year!
For one, we find out in about 5 days if our Doritos Superbowl Commercial made the top 5. (Remember about a month ago when I told you guys we made top 24?)
Then of course, there’s the wedding! It’s exactly 5 months from today! 🙂
And we can’t forget all of the fun bridal showers, couples showers and bachelorette parties that will be coming my way in the next few months. I can’t wait!
I also have some exciting developments to reveal a little later on as to where my life might be heading in the next year as well…
2014 is going to be an awesome, awesome year. 🙂
I’m not 100% sure what our plans are for tonight, but I do know I’ll be doing something with my sweetheart and maybe something with some of our friends that are in town for the holiday.
We’ll see- either way, it’s always a great time when Shane and I are together. 🙂
Do any of you guys have something exciting planned for tonight?
So in the spirit of the new year, and health and fitness and all those great “resolutiony” things, I thought I’d leave you this afternoon with my very first workout review!
P90x Workout Review
If any of you out there have ever attempted any of the P90x workouts, chances are your go to was never Plyo. Why? Probably because it has a pretty nasty reputation.
You’ve probably heard something about it at one point or another, if you’re into fitness of any kind, at least once.
I won’t lie- it is rough. Especially if you aren’t used to this particular type of training.
Plyo, after all, is essentially just jump training. Through the 60 minute workout, you’ll do all different types of jumps, spins, hops and leap- really any drill that has to do with power, speed and height, you’ll likely do it at least once.
A large quantity of the moves in this DVD are squat jump variations, which I LOVE. I really, really love squat jumps. I put them in all of my mini circuits because they A) work the largest muscle group in the body and therefor give you the most calorie burn for your buck, and B) they get your heart rate up really quickly, boosting your metabolism.
These 2 things are both very good things, making the squat jump King of all cardio/strength combo moves, in my opinion. 🙂
I also happen to really love training my legs. They’re by far my favorite body part to work.
Long story short, if you’re like me, you’ll probably really enjoy Plyo X- even if it does sort of suck, which…it sort of does. But it is really rewarding once you get through it! And it leaves you a sweaty mess, as evidenced by this lovely post-workout selfie I took after Shane and I did it last week:
(Duck face..I’m sorry, guys.)
Even if you hate training legs, if you know anyone that has access to the P90x program, I recommend that you give this workout a whirl at least once. You might love it as much as I do!
Even if you don’t- you get to see you made it through “the mother of all P90x workouts”- and that’s a pretty cool thing. 😉
