Sorry about your wrist Ginalyn sad.gif

 

I'm taking a week off because the weather is so dang beautiful and just wanted to be outside... have to take advantage of it before it gets up to 120F. We've been hiking the last 2 days and man are my buns sore!

Hey ladies! My FI and I are hoping to get through P90X before our wedding. We have about 10 months before the big day so we hope to be starting the program soon but it's been a hectic spring. We already have all the goods so I'm thinking of starting in the next week or two - planning on trying to line it up with the next trip to the grocery store to get some healthy food in the fridge first! I just wanted to thank everyone that posts on here in advance. The amount of support that a group like this provides is just amazing! Congrats to everyone who's already reached there goals and thanks to everyone for the awesome motivation!! Here's to hoping I can stick to it!

Hi Everyone!!

My P90X videos arrived yesterday! I'm going to watch the intro video today after work and start on it this weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips for someone just starting out?

Hey Stacey - I would say you just have to commit and "bring it" as much as you can every time. I would also recommend writing down your reps when you start doing the weight lifting exercises, I didn't do this and I regret it.

Let us know how it goes cheesy.gif

Thanks! FI is going to do it with me, and on days that I don't feel like working out, Im sure he will get me to haha!

How do you know what weight is the right weight for you to lift?

You kind of have to guestimate the first time you do things - I usually use bands, 10 lbs and 15 lbs - and he will explain in the videos - if you want to get lean/toned look you want to shoot for 12-15 reps. If you start with a weight that makes you tired at 5 reps then you know it's too heavy for you (pause it and get a lighter weight) - you just have to make sure you feel a big burn with the last 3 reps.

I am doign Chalene Extreme. Has anyone else. I did 3 days this week. (Hard but no so so hard. I was expecting much worse.) I did take 2 day break becasue I have a stomach flyu of some sort.

 

Here's a question for you all...has anyone done the owkrouts without doing the meal plans? I intend to eat healthy but being on a actual diet plan and working out is just to much for me. I already have no time between work, commute and a baby. But I worked out with a trainer for a couple of months last year and looked great. I ate whatever the hell I wanted.

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
