Start of P90X3 ... & what gets me fired up about it

My P90X3 came in the mail last week.

it was sitting on my counter all weekend & I read the book that came along with it preparing myself for what was to come.

How I was all weekend waiting to start it

I was just excited to get a good work out in in 30 minutes instead of my whole evening.

I looked at my calendar & its 13 weeks long, which will take me literally to the week before Christmas. I like this.  It will get me through the holidays, but let me enjoy Christmas week without the pressure of having to work out.
This will NOT happen to me this year

& then it leads me right to the new year where I really am considering starting training for The Flying Pig half marathon... so maybe #PHM7 (Project Half Marathon 7) will be in full motion again... we'll see...

But know what gets my goat...

P90X3 isn't cheap.  It is $150 after shipping & handling... but I took the leap for the sake of having more time in my evening...

& I know this program is extreme.  I have to modify - especially the chin ups & all the things you have to do on a bar.... but I do it.

& then this morning, what do I see? 

They are coming out with a new program called P90 ...

its supposed to be for ANYONE.  Tony Horton is teaching it, but its not 'extreme'... that one probably is what I would need more then any extreme workout I have to modify myself anyways.

so I'm ticked off....

I know I'll want the new program, but I'm not shelling out another $150.00 just yet...

bad timing - the story of my life....

Maybe at the end of this P90X3 - I'll be so tough, that I'll laugh at the easy P90 program...

I can dream, right?


  1. gah that is super annoying, and why are they so expensive?! crazy.

  2. Dang, that would be frustrating!! Any way they would do an exchange since they are the same price??

  3. I'm amazed at the cost of fitness programs. The CrossFit gyms here are between $175 - $250 a month. No way the overhead in the warehouses costs them that much. Essentially you're paying someone to let YOU do all the work. It's crazy. P90X is a video program, right? So at 13 weeks for $150, you're paying over $11 per week for someone on the television to tell you what to do. It's a racket, all of it.

  4. So expensive but you are going to rock it then wont need the other! :) Btw that is awesome that the end falls right before Christmas!

  5. That is really annoying! I hate how expensive all of those workout plans are!

  6. Holy mother of holiday pounds!!! I need to step away from these pumpkin spice lattes before I look like New Year's Eve at Thanksgiving. LOL!

    You are going to be so She Hulked out that P90 is going to be NOTHING to you!
