Hi- I am an overweight female (5’4” and 168)- I started p90x a month ago along with my husband. I really wanted to do the lean option being that I wanted to loose weight but he just wanted to gain muscle. Our schedules are pretty hecktic so I gave in and settled with doing classical together. I’m glad i did so- I’ve gone down to 160 since beginning the program 5 weeks ago and my close fits nicer- compliments have begun pouring in from family/friends who I havent seen in a few weeks. So now I’m definately ‘Bringing It’!
I’ve been watching what I’m eating closely, espeically since I am also doing this to lower triglycerides. I usually stick to breakfast bar and salads for lunch with lilttle to no dressing. Sometimes I do have a little chicken on it to give it ‘flavor’. After p90x I am not very hungry at all- but I know the importance of eating- so I shove a piece of chicken, rice, veggies (all fistful sizes) in my mouth.
We just began month 2. Would I be overdoing my body by adding in possibly 30 minutes of jogging prior to p90x? Before my husband comes home I usually have about 2 hours to myself. So I would like to fit in 30-45 minutes of jogging on treadmill, then rest until he comes home and we begin the dvd. Is this a good idea? If not- what else can I do?

- Hi Nancy,
My husband and I found out we are expecting …We are on month 3 of classic program and I’ve lost 13 pounds (bummer its all come back in the next few months). Can i still continue p90x while pregnant? I usually lift between 8/10/15 pounds- should I downscale on weight? I feel comfortable continuing right now- but of course my husband is concerned.
