Day 2-Boot Camp

Well today was day 2 of boot camp. I was expecting to literally about die. To be honest...I thought it was easier...maybe because I knew what to expect I dont know. We did more than we did Tuesday but we did a lot more things like pushups, ab stuff, legs, etc instead of running as much..maybe thats what it was..I dont know, but I know whatever I do Ill be sore..haha as out of shape as Im in! We were going to run 1 1/2 miles outside but it was raining and lightning so that will be for Tuesday. I do find it funny that a few women dropped out because Tuesday was too "hard".

I made it 2 days Im so proud of myself, Ive pushed myself more than I EVER have and it feels awesome, I just love the burn and feeling like Im doing something with my body for the good. Next Boot camp is Tuesday for black day (supposed to be the toughest!)

Food for today
Breakfast: blueberry muffin, water
Lunch: chicken salad sandwich with rosemary olive oil bread, red grapes, banana chips, water
Dinner: chicken corn dog, baked fries (tsp of olive oil, cajun seasoning), BBQ sauce, water
Water: 80 oz
Exercise: 1 hr boot camp

Tomorrow is weigh in Im hoping for a good one, Ive been 183.2 for 1 month, no gain, no loss. Im ready to move on and Im hoping maybe I can even be in the 170's, well see.

Boot Camp day 1

Well today was day 1 of boot camp and wow was it more than I ever thought. I have never sweated and felt like I was going to literally die. It was 45 minutes of boot camp + 15 minute warmup/cooldown = 1 hr. We worked parts of my body I never knew existed either. This is a military guy who knows what he is doing. Today was a red day which was supposedly easy (maybe for him), Thursday is blue day, and then Tuesday is black day (supposedly the toughest of all). Each 3 of these days are different workouts. If I can just keep this up and tough it out wow I may lose this weight! Its tough but what part of losing weight is easy?? He reminds me of those trainers on Biggest Loser (if you try to quit..give me more), its just what I needed honestly.

Then like I havent had enough I went to run for 15 minutes because on Thursday we start running and yeah Im not in running shape. I havent ever ran more than a few steps or so.

Food for today (Tuesday-Sept. 15)
Breakfast: blueberry muffin, water
Lunch: chicken salad sandwich with rosemary olive oil bread, TGIFriday chips, 1/2 slice homemade pizza (student made it..I couldnt resisit), 1 slice of pound cake (again student made), water
dinner: chicken pot pie with biscuits, water
Water: 96 oz (do you know how long its been since I had that much water..Im so proud of myself I must admit!)
Exercise: 45 min boot camp + 15 min warmup/cooldown, 15 min run/walk (1 hr 15 min total)

Changes Ahead

Does anyone else have a Brita pitcher? My cousin has convinced me to get one this weekend and we got one this weekend and I love it along with my thermos cooler that marks the oz on it. Water has always been a big thing that I used to do but have gotten away from it. It has helped big time, well see if it keeps up Also, my husband got one as well (thermos) and he has never really drank water and he said its much easier to do it that way too and to see how many oz and such you are drinking.

My cousin has also given me some good recipes (she is a major health guru-has her degree in it too-so she knows her stuff).

Also, they have an ex military guy that is a teacher at our school and he has agreed to do a boot camp for all the faculty that are interested. Its 2 days a week (Tues & Thurs) for 45 min to 1 hr. Im looking forward to it and doing something different. I might die tomorrow but hopefully Ill survive

Up next, Im going to start putting down my food to help keep me accountable!

Last week we didnt weigh in and today I weighed in with a maintain at 183.2. I was thinking I was going to have a gain so I was glad of at least a maintain. I thought it would motivate me but it really hasnt done anything maybe its just the tough things.

I think we may join a gym and may do the trial to see which one we like best.
