You Are Under P90X Arrest!!!

Sticking with Tony Horton's 11 Laws of Health & Fitness, I'm focusing on number two today...consistency! The more you do it, the better you get! This applies to pretty much everything in life. If you're not good at playing the piano...practice and you'll get better. If you study more for assessments, chances are you'll ace your courses. Even Michael Jordan got cut from his high school basketball team...not good enough...HAH!! Ultimately, he had two choices. He could have thrown in the towel, or he could have remained consistent...practicing daily...persevering!! "I think that not making the Varsity team drove me to really work at my game, and also taught me that if you set goals, and work hard to achieve them — the hard work can pay off." He had a desire to win and refused to quit, and as we all know, the rest is history!

So, how does this affect YOU?!? Let's apply it to one Beachbody program in particular...P90X!! For those of you who have done this workout, you know that Tony Horton cracks corny jokes throughout all of the workouts. He's no different in real life. In fact, I recently read that he had the intention of becoming an actor and for a little while, he earned a living as a stand-up comedian! At the presentation I attended, he said, "You're not gonna hear, "You are under X arrest!" The X Police aren't coming if you don't do the program perfectly and as planned."

Change the program around if you need to. Do yoga twice a week instead of one of the cardio workouts (just don't skip's the Fountain of Youth)! You've heard it over and over...this is the law that asks you to DO YOUR BEST AND FORGET THE REST!! SHOW UP every day at least 5-6 times per week. BE PATIENT and PERSISTENT because this will create the discipline you need in order to be successful! STICK TO IT...yeah, that's right, I'm actually suggesting that you FINISH the program you purchased. Tony said to do it poorly for 90 days!! You're going to see results. If yoga is a weakness, you should still push play and do what you can! "Do something part time!"'s NOT the pattern you want to create. It's important to keep the momentum going! You've got to stay motivated. Join others like you who are using WOWY, Beachbody's virtual online gym. Not only will you be working out (in the comfort of your own home) with hundreds of others, you've got an incentive to win some prizes (cash and other items). I personally won $300...yep, it definitely PAID to workout that day! Join for free: and let me help you along the way (my screen name is eaglesgirl if it asks for a coach name).

Don't complain...don't whine...don't quit!! Keep going strong by pushing yourself to reach your goal!! Eat properly! Surround yourself with people who will support your efforts and hold you're going to cross your own personal finish line holding your head up's a GREAT feeling!

Be consistent, and don't worry, the P90X police are not gonna come for you!
