Boot Camp Blog

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

The bonus challenge for the Boot Camp today was to write a blog about the challenge. Unfortunately, I'm a little disillusioned today. The workouts are short and not too difficult. You can tailor them to your fitness level. That being said, I think I expected them to be a little bit harder, more of a challenge. My vision of Boot Camp is like basic training. Hard!

I do like the Bonus Challenges. They are often things that I would not have done without being "challenged" to do it.

Two weeks down, two to go (roughly). I'll stick with it because I said I would. But today, the excitement is gone.

  


Running

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

The gym was still full, even though DH and I got there later than normal. Instead of using the elliptical, I got on a treadmill. My carpool partner mentioned that he had run a half mile over the weekend, a quarter of a mile at a time. I tend to be a little bit competitive (OK, REALLY competitive!) and I decided that I could run a half mile all at once. By the time I got to the half mile, I had decided to just keep going. I ended up jogging for 28.5 minutes at 5.0 mph alternating between an incline of 1.0 and 3.0. My thighs are going to screech at me tomorrow, but it feels good tonight!

Good, better anyway.

Each member of the family had to (yes, right now, it's still a force) to choose one type of vegetable to eat with their dinner. Two had celery, one had carrots. I let them know that this was a new thing in our house, so if they wanted a particular kind of veggie, to speak up. I will do what I can to keep it up.

Right now, they have their choice of carrots, celery, red/yellow/orange peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes. Plus there is lettuce for a salad. That should be enough to keep them interested for at least a week...I hope!

Later!

  


Grocery shopping

Saturday, January 17, 2009

Today was my bi-weekly grocery trip. After having the family make the menu (sort of), I made the grocery list. I even added extra veggies. And, to top it off, I spent less than normal! Yippee!!

After I relax for a minute or two, I'll clean up some of the veggies so I can just put them out at dinner tonight. Planning to have the family eat a few veggies for every dinner. Get some nutrients in there! Hee hee.

Later taters.
