I love to do P90X. Its really challenging, but I also need variety. P90X stresses muscle confusion...well I confuse! lol I do P90X, I do Jillian's workouts, my own work outs, Gilad Janklowitz's workouts...I power walk, I run, I bike, I kayak, I play tennis, etc...I do what I can and I do it hard when I do it, to make it count.
I try to eat right, but I don't always. I don't have a weight problem, nor do my kids, because playing hard was something we always did with them. In Jillian's one podcast, she talks about how someone will say to her, those cookies aren't mine, they are my kids...she laughs and says, what makes them immune to obesity...she is right. I think everything in moderation is okay...as long as you play hard and workout. My kids lived their whole childhoods playing outside as I did. They built bike ramps, skate boarded, learned to play tennis, learned to kayak, hiked to The Pinnacle, played sports and did the things all kids should do.
I had friends comment that my yard is a dream come true for boys. I never worried about the way it looked, with their hideous homemade ramps, tree houses etc in it. Those super pretty houses with the well groomed yards that belong in a magazine, that's not for me. We have some of those in our neighborhood and you don't see those people's kids ever playing outside. The inside of my house is no better. The laundry is never all done, all my housework is always behind....but I don't care! I could spend my days cleaning it up magazine perfect, but then my kids suffer and so do I.
