Not Really a PX90 Kind of Girl

My husband came home yesterday with a genius idea (and by "genius" I really mean "something only a man can come up with and not see why it could be a bad idea"). He had a stack of DVDs a mile high and a huge grin on his face. I'll give you a synopsis of the conversation that followed:
Me: What is that? The entire Lost series on DVD?
Daniel: No. It's the BEST. THING. EVER!! We're going to get into the best shape of our lives. You are going to love this.
 Me (sipping on my third iced coffee of the day):  Interesting... so they are work out videos? Like Billy Blanks or Denise Austin? I can definitely kick your butt in some Tae Bo action.
Daniel: EVEN BETTER! It's PX90. (He pauses... waiting for a response. Like I'm supposed to know what PX90 is.) It's a 90 day workout plan that is really intense. I was thinking we could do it every night after Paige goes to sleep.
Me: What exactly do you mean by "intense?" Like, do I need a to wear a sweatband and sneakers? 'Cuz you know I'm not really into sweating...
Daniel: (Completely ignoring my questions...) So each day we're going to do a different workout, but we may need to get some of the special gear like the chin-up bar, weights, resistance cords... We're going to be soooo ripped.
Me: I don't do chin-ups. I'm not really liking the sound of this. You know I'm pretty exhausted by the time Paige goes down at night...
Daniel: Cool! I'm glad you're excited too. We'll start tomorrow night. Maybe pick up some yoga mats while you're out tomorrow. This is going to be GREAT!!
 Me: (see expression below)
So, ummm... yeah. I guess I'm starting PX90 tonight? Fun times! Did I mention I'm not really into sweating?: )

Here is a link to PX90 if you are as clueless as I was.
