Noodles

Hello Blog World!
I feel like a noodle today!

Seriously! When I got off work yesterday I went home and tried one of the p90x dvd's again! :) Fun, I know! This time I tried the Kenpo??? I think that is what it was called! I also think I did really well with this dvd. I made it almost 20 minutes into it!!! Yahooo! Last time I tried I quit after 6 mins. So I AM MAKING PROGRESS! I had my sweetie pie husband take some pictures of me doing some of the moves I learned! After carefully examining these photos I have come to the decision that I need to have this lap band surgery come hell or high water!!! Really, they are that bad! Good thing for ya'll I have great self confidence and will post really bad pictures of myself on a blog for the WHOLE WORLD to see! :)




Things I notice in this picture........

1. This shirt is a 2x and it is too tight! Not a good sign! Maybe it has been washed and dried too many times, um yeah that sounds like a good EXCUSE!

2. These shorts are also too tight. Another oooops. Maybe I should have bought the size bigger last summer when I bought these and thought they looked awesome on me!

3. I have missing knees and elbows! Where did they go? I didn't notice they were missing until now, I guess they are not really needed! :)

4. Why am I so worried about skin when my fat looks just as bad? I guess I have never really looked closely at my arms. Big mistake. Maybe if I had taken the time to examine my arms I would have being doing the old p90x a LONG time ago! I have been paying extra close attention to my arms since Amy W. made a post about bat wings! Thanks Amy!!! By making that post it has caused me to LOOK at my arms! Ghah! I might take a picture of my arms and post, but I don't know if I am THAT brave! You can pretty much see from these pictures that my arms are in bad enough shape because of FAT!!!!! Skin is the LEAST of my worries!

Here is another picture of a "new" move I learned last night! I had Ant (husband) take a picture of this one because it is SPECIAL! It was one of the stretches and I didn't think I would be able to do it! Weird I know, it is really easy! So, it made me excited that I am trying NEW things and accomplishing them! Even if it is just a squating stretch! We all have to start somewhere!!!


Ok, so there you have it!!!! Awful pictures of my wonderful workout!!!!

Have a GREAT day ya'll!!!

Kim said...

That is awesome you are doing P90X!! You look great doing it! I am so excited for you and your decision to get this surgery. It has been the best decision I have ever made. I cannot wait until I get this stupid cast off so I can get out there and start exercising again.

I only did one day of P90x and gave up so you're doing GREAT! Keep it up Mary!

Amy said...

I do not have knees either. No worries! They'll resurface some day.

I have skin worries as well, but I finally realized that what will be, will be. I'd still rather be flabby and thin than smooth and fat!

Maria said...

I want to try the P90X but scared to not be able to handle it, but I think I am going to do what you do and just tryit a couple minutes at a time!

congrats on your progress of sticking with it!

Robin said...

Look at you go, girl!

Mary said...

Well ladies, I am trying!! I really can't do all the moves and stuff but I just do what I can do and everytime I do it I try to do it a little longer!!!! Thanks guys!!!!

DB said...

I have double knees!!!!! You go girlfriend :)

amandakiska said...

You're so cute! Keep at it!

Jennifer said...

Way to go Mary! I loved the pics! You rock - P90X is hardcore. Keep up the great work. From 6 minutes to 20 is HUGE progress. Woot!

River said...

First thing I noticed was you're freaking adorable! Don't get defensive saying you wanna be beautiful, cos people can only look cute or ugly during a workout!!! I'm just being honest.
I don't think the shorts are small really. Are you uncomfortable in them?
You have some guts girl! You can only do great things! Soon that tshirt will be too large and you will have to go shopping! Better start saving up already :)

Gilly said...

Love the kick ass pictures! These are going to be SO cool when they are your BEFORE kick ass pictures!

Mary said...

Haha.....Thanks Gilly! I hope they will one day be before pictures! For now they are "right now Mary needs to do some exercise" pictures! :)

River - No they are not uncomfortable! I am used to wearing tight clothing :) I had just never taken a full body picture with these shorts on! I have this problem, when I look into the mirror I see this really hot beautiful girl! I always think I look good when I buy things or get ready to go out!!! It's opposite mirror syndrome!!!! It is a terrible thing to have to deal with :) Oh, and I will take freaking adorable any day of the week! :)

Joey said...

Good for you! I'm scared of P90X! I do Jillian Micheals instead...but she's scary too.

Jenny said...

You are going to be killing it in no time! 6 minutes to 20 minutes! Those clothes are going to be falling off you sooner than you think.

Cindylew said...

Nice job Mary...6 minutes the first time...20 minutes this time...at this rate, next time you're going to finish it.

Gail said...

That is awesome. Way to go!! Keep up the good work.

Kristen said...
