Back to bootcamp!

Just got home from bootcamp a little while ago. There was a 2 week hiatus and then I went to Dallas for a week so now I’m back in the game. Oh my god. I want to die. 

I started at a new location and it’s SO much better than the other. This one is not full of size 2-4’s with a kinda hot instructor. This one has more real size women and a female instructor. 

We ran a short lap and I actually wasn’t the last one! Amazing!!

We did a circuit… 10 squat presses, 7 push ups, 10 jump rope, 5 lunges on each side, rinse, repeat. Eugh.

Anyway, I feel good. Legs are jelly… but good! 

Pounds!

So a friend of mine was around 230 lbs and is now around 200 and went from a size 16-18 to now squeezing into a size 12. This makes me sick. Don’t get me wrong I am SO happy for her. She worked her ass off! (this is the friend I’ve told you about that can run!) But even when I was 60 lbs lighter? I was only in a 15 and right now I am wearing 18’s and 20’s. 

Now I know I know… everyone is built differently, etc. But it’s still frustrating. She always complains about her fat thighs and arm upper arms but they’re like half the size of mine. She was just carrying the weight in her stomach which she is now losing. 

So… this morning in bootcamp? We had to do some jogging. a LOT of jogging. But I did the majority of it. I felt like I was going to die most of the time… but I did it! I DID IT! It was an amazing feeling. 

During one of the MANY jogging sessions… I heard someone behind me say “Move it skank” I was appalled and just flabbergasted! Then the girl in front of me turned around and started talking to her. I was about to say “What the fuuuuuck!?” but obviously they were friends.

The sessions are from 5:30 to 6:30 and you better believe the trainer makes EVERY second count. Also… the trainer I had last week wasn’t there today. It was another guy that’s even harder. BUT! This one doesn’t know my name. Haaaaa. 

Oh and yesterday? About halfway through the workout someone farted during crunches. HAHAHA, I would have laughed because I think farting is hilarious, but I was too out of breath. 

I feel so much better lately… and just from looking at my disgusting picture that I posted a while back? I really think I look a bit smaller! yaaayyy! Get it done!

Bootcamp this week

So, you’ll all be happy to know that I’m the largest and most out of shape person there. *tear

And today we had to sign in and my name wasn’t on the list so one of the trainers wrote it in. Then during one of the exercises I hear him say my name then “kick higher!” I looked at him like “Are you kidding?” Then he said “Yea, I know your name now! Haha!”…. Oh Joy! 

Whenever it gets really hard? I just tell myself “Yup, you did this to yourself. You even PAID to have this done to you.” -.-

Need to get some sleep.. have to wake up at 4:30. Eugh!

Also, I have heard a little about this No Weigh In April thing? I don’t know if I should do that… although, how awesome would it be to wait for so long and see how much you’ve lost! Although, on the other hand… if I didn’t lose a lot I would be PISSED that I hadn’t been looking at the scale and trying to change something to improve the numbers. Hmmph. I’m ponder on this a wee bit more before making a decision. Anyway, bed time! 

Sleep tight! Don’t let the bed bugs bite! Napping tomorrow will be AMAZING!

This morning sucked

Woke up early and went to bootcamp this morning. When doing one of the exercises on my mat, we had to stretch our arms out whilst laying on our stomachs. Then I felt it. ow. oW. Ow. OW! My arms had gone straight into an area full of ants. My right forearm is swollen from all the bites. 

Then towards the end I noticed that my knee was hurting again so I asked the trainer about it. He said that I probably sprained it. GREAT! So he said to elevate it, put ice on it, take ibuprofen and it should be better. Also he said not to do the jumping jacks we do in the class. 

Maybe I should get a brace. 

I’m still confused on if I want to sign up for a month of bootcamp. Waking up early is really killing me. 

Nap time!

Bootcamp… Day 2.

So I am getting ready for my second day of bootcamp and I am scared. 

Yesterday was terrible (and awesome)

but today will surely be worse. My whole body is aching and I feel exhausted. I don’t think I will be going to the track this morning like yesterday. I think I will be coming home to shower and take a nap. 

ow.

No pain, no gain. 

This is gonna suck. 

March 19 Weigh In

So my fears were confirmed. I lost 1.2 pound this week. Now it could just be my ‘time’ if you know what I mean or it could just be because I didn’t do as much this week.

I’m not discouraged. As I said, I didn’t work out as much this past week. How can I sit here and be pissed that I didn’t have the same weight loss as last week when I sweat balls last week and didn’t work out as much this week? Also I had a bit of a bad meal yesterday. So ah well. You know what? I didn’t GAIN! So let us yay for that!

Someone just told me that warm water helps with bloating - honey with a slice of lime/lemon, green/white tea, tea with honey.. all with warm water

This morning I started the day with my bootcamp. It kicked my ASS. It was so hard. And surprisingly? The majority of the people were thin and fit. I was definitely one of the biggest people there. I just thought it would be more people that were a bit out of shape. 

It was an hour long class that is trying to kill my outer fat girl. I’m appreciative.

The hardest part was when I was supposed to do 10 jumping jacks then 10 push ups, 9 jumping jacks then 9 push ups, 8 jumping jacks then 8 push ups, etc. We were allowed 3 seconds to get down/up to do the next exercise. Let me just say, on the second round of that (this time with cross ski exercises and crunches) I got up and down a few times then just laid on my mat for a second and just did crunches for the duration. 

On my way home I dropped off my friend then went to the track by my house and did my walk/jog/run thing. I was still riding on that high you get after working out and thought… why not? Lets do this! Of course by my third lap (4 is a mile) I wanted to die. But I finished up the mile regardless.

So, moral of the story? Don’t be angry if you don’t lose weight when you know you didn’t work for it OR when it could be caused by something you can not control. 

I am EXHAUSTED. I’m about to head to Sam’s for my weekly fruit and veggie shopping. 

Stay motivated! We can do it!

This past week

So I am a bit scared about my weigh in tomorrow. I was kinda crampy and bloated (we all know what that means!) So I might in fact GAIN up to 10 lbs this week. >.>

I went to a friends house for a few days which I was also worried about, but I brought my mini blender, fruit, veggies and ate healthy food the whole time I was there. I didn’t work out as much as I usually do though. 

Tomorrow morning is the first day of my boot camp. 5:30 in the morning is really going to suck. I am really happy that one of the other bridesmaids is doing it with me! 

I will post again after my weigh in tomorrow! Hopefully I at least lost a couple of pounds! Wish me luck!!!

Boot caaaaaamp!

A friend and I signed up for a one week boot camp starting Monday at 5:30am. It’s every day for a week. It’s usually $300ish for a month but they’re doing a week class for $37. This is a great way for me to test it and see if I like it before investing. Or I could just do the exercises I learn at home. Either way? It’s a win! I’m so out is shape though so I really worry about what I’ll be doing. I’m scared but excited! So when you wake up this week(at any time past 6:30am) just remember that I’ve already worked out so you should too!
