Hey ladies, just lurking! I'm in desperate need for some workout motivation and I must say, your reviews on p90x have me intrigued! I've heard nothing but good about it so far, and here it sounds like you're all sticking it out... which is so great.

I need to tone my body so bad, but so far have only been able to drag myself to a few yoga classes here and there and do the odd ab-workout in my basement. Before the baby, i was an avid runner and in great shape for the most part. How depressing that now all I want to do in my spare time is sit on my couch and eat sweets. Sigh!

Good luck in your p90x endeavors and thanks for sharing!

Hi Ladies. I am considering P90X, but have a few questions. My DH was very encouraging when I talked to him about starting the program, but he asked if it would effect bf'ing. Have any of you done the program while bf'ing? I'm only about 3 weeks pp. Should I wait to start a program like this? Thanks for any input or advise.

I'm no doctor, but I would think it's ok to do while BFing. It makes you want to drink a ton of water, which is good. And there are no dietary restrictions.

I would say that P90x wouldn't be too big of an issue. Especially if you do the lean version b/c that schedule doesn't require a crazy amount of cardio.
I didn't notice any drops in supply but I was already weaning my son when I started P90x about 2 weeks ago so...
...like most things baby related it'll probably vary person to person.

If you ever have anymore ?'s, want a free "coach" to help you meet your goals or decide to buy P90x check out my site www.teambeachbody.com/stephaniescott

and/or you can email me at coastiechick@live.com for some reason I'm not being notified of new posts anymore???

Also wanted to add (b/c I was so nervous about the pull ups), he give you substitute moves with resistance bands to help work you up to pull up level!!!

Turbo fire is more cardio based P90x is more bootcamp style. I actually like it better b/c you can set your own pace...
