As most of my readers know, I have lost 100 pounds as the result of a complete lifestyle change, and I’m feeling great, healthy, and happy! However, this past weekend I slipped my new body into a swim suit (a bikini even, yikes!) for the first time in a very, very long time, and I must say, I wasn’t nearly as comfortable as I hoped I would be.
Sure, I am exactly where I want to be size and weight wise, but my body is in definite need of some toning. I don’t know about you guys, but I have some serious arm and thigh flab to address. Maybe I’m totally nuts, but something tells me that arm fat shouldn’t flap in the breeze. Am I right?!
|I'd Really like to go from This....|
|To This. Think I can do it?!|
Well, to send my arm flab packing, I’ve decided that instead of placing my main focus only on weight loss and healthy eating, I’m going to extend my focus to include something totally new: toning exercises.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I am a complete weakling; thank goodness I have a strong boyfriend to carry heavy things for me, or I would be in a world of trouble. I’ve done some researching, and I think I’ve found the perfect resource to get my flabby butt into a tightly toned physique: Beachbody Workouts.
If you’re thinking to yourself, “Whoa, Kate! Take it easy! Beachbody is the makers of those super hardcore P90X2 and Insanity workout programs.” Well, you’re exactly right! If I’m going to get toned up, I’m not going to mess around; which is precisely why I am opting for Beachbody workouts; I only want the best.

I’ve never tried Beachbody's ever so popular P90X2 or Insanity workout programs, but I have always wanted to. And not just because everyone I talk to who completes these programs undergo a total body transformation, but because these programs actually make sense!
Unlike other fitness plans, they don't make false promises; they tell you straight up that these programs are not the work of magic, and that they take nothing less than everything you’ve got. Since I am the type of person who gets a personal high out of challenging myself, I am confident that these programs will work wonders for my body.
|Yes, I know how scary they look...Bring it on!|
The best part? Beachbody has tapped into my iPhone addiction and created a P90X iPhone app that will allow me to track my reps and weight usage, view my very own customized progress reports, keep a detailed log of my nutrition, and share my results with others!
My plan is to combine P90X2 workouts with the Insanity workouts so that I’ll get maximum results. I’ll keep you informed as I begin the program, and I’ll post weekly pictures and measurements as I go through the process.
I am absolutely thrilled to start this journey, but I’m even more excited to share it with my readers. Once I complete the Insanity and P90X2 workout programs, who knows what kind of fitness goals I’ll be able to achieve? But, I can’t wait to find out!
