Negativity surrounded my life, and I was depressed. After a long day at work, I would sit on the couch, eat junk food, watch television, and barely move. I was sad, unconfident, had no energy, and was always asking myself, “Why am I alive?” One day eating bad fast food landed me in the hospital, on the verge of kidney failure, with the worst infection they’d ever seen. I was scared out of my mind. Fortunately my boyfriend took care of me, but when I got out of the hospital on his birthday, we couldn’t celebrate the way we’d planned because I was hooked up to an IV.
That changed my life forever. My boyfriend had already lost his mother, and I realized it scared him to see how sick I was. I decided that was the last day he would ever see me like that. I chose P90X because so many people were doing it and getting in the best shape of their lives.
The greatest challenge I faced was Pushing Play and sticking to the 90-day program. Being in a Challenge Group taught me what healthy eating was, and motivated me to work out. I felt if I didn’t work out or eat healthy meals, then I would get kicked out of the group—even though that wasn’t really the case. Logging in my workouts in the SuperGym made it easier to coordinate my daily plans, because then I knew which workout was next and how long it was. I liked that P90X switched the workouts constantly, using Muscle Confusion to get me the best results possible.
