Fit Club Tuesday - P90X!!

It is Tuesday and that means it is time for Fit Club!  Whoo-hoo!!!

Fit Club Workout:

Today's workout is P90X.  Over the weekend, I got to workout with Tony Horton.  He is so amazing and fun!  He looks great!  He is just as goofy in person as he is in his videos.  We tried some of the new moves that are in his new P90X MC2 videos that will be coming out in 2011.  All I can say is OUCH!  I am still sore this morning from Saturday's workout!

I was requested to do Kenpo X.  This is one of my favorite workouts and I certainly don't mind hosting it tonight!  If you are in the area, please come by the Community Center at 7 PM and workout with us and taste Shakeology!!!  You'll have fun and get to hear all the great news that came out this weekend!

Shakeology tonight will be German Chocolate!  YUM.  Check out this cool video about Shakeology:

Discussion:  What is your favorite fall food?  I love soups.  So easy to make and filling and usually less calories.  Add in a salad and a good crusty bread and I am in!!
