any advice on somethin that WORKS?

Recommended Posts

I know it's been mentioned before, but P90X is amazing! It's really hard, but it does give you results. There are 12 dvd's for the whole set. It comes with a schedule that tells you what dvd to do on what day. They are about an hour each. You will need a resistance band (or weights, but a resistance band is cheaper) and a chair.

The whole series has both cardio and resistance exercises, so if you stick with the schedule, you won't need to add any additional cardio or anything.

Also, I was watching the Grammy's the other night and Sheryl Crow was being interviewed on the red carpet...they asked her how she stays so fit and she said a friend turned her on to this great dvd called P90X!

I was so excited that Sheryl Crow is doing the same workout as me smile29.gif

This is great info! I just bought Bob's (from biggest loser) weight loss Yoga DVD and a Pilates Weight loss DVD just started them last week but they are both pretty challenging so it def makes you feel like you are getting a good work out. I mix those in with cardio and free weights as well as a pole fitness class. The pole class is SO much fun and helps build a lot of confidence, in just a couple months i can already invert and climb up a pole - something I never thought Id be able to do :) I think food is my biggest challenge, Im trying hard to cut cheese out and white flour

The first phase is somewhat restrictive. You eliminate all sugars and carbs (breads, sugars, sweets, rice, potatos, carrots.. see the link) for 10 days. But you are able to eat until you are full from veggies and lean protiens. My typical meals were as follows:
Breakfast-V8, boiled egg and 2 piece of bacon
Snack- 10 peanuts
Lunch-Salad with grilled chicken or tuna light dressing
Dinner-grilled fish with brocoli
Snack-Sugar free Jello.. THis is what I did for ten days. and sometimes i still do it.. just to "clean" out my system. But if you follow the link, it breaks it down listing the foods that you can have during phase 1, what foods to include during phase 2, etc..
This was restrictive to me because I LOVE fruits and breads.. so, I just do a modified version of it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
