Whoops, I didn't do it again!!

Thursday, October 28, 2010


I have been really slacking with this boot camp challenge. I started with every intention of finishing. When I had a workout buddy, it made a huge difference. She would push me ( like sisters do) and I would do the same for her. But since her health is not the best she can't workout for now. So I am without a buddy and am left to push myself. I do and I don't push myself. I do push myself out of bed when I would much rather sleep that extra hour. I have pushed myself this week when today I ran a full mile for the first time ever!! High Five me!!.

Now though, I know most of my block is in my head, like my brother who is 3yrs older than me and runs 5 miles everyday tells me its all in your head. I truly believe that statement. I went out today and just did after building up doing a little more of a run etch day till I could run the full distance today. I want to do more though, but...I am old fashioned and need that proverbial kick in the pants to keep me on track.

I do enjoy Sparkpeople and the website is fun to visit. I do get too busy though and forget I need to visit everyday. Now that my daughter is all grown up I actually have a life, go figure! Anyway, I will put in for a Sparkbuddy with some muscle to "spark" me forward and I will do the same for her.

    well, one step at a time, or in your case one PUSH at a time,
you will get there and it gets to be a need to exercise after a while hang in there.

Day 2: Boot Camp Challenge - WOW

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Feeling pretty good today with this bootcamp challenge. slow getting this morning but once I got going felt really good, stronger in my mind for doing something past my own theshold of mind over matter.

I also ran for a much farther distance today; again thank you God so much for that. I recite The Lords Prayer when I run so I can keep my breathing even. Its just short of a miracle really. I haven't run since high school. I am so loving this. Can't wait for what's up next for the challenge, stay tuned.

Day 1: Boot Camp Challenge

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Made it through day 1 of the Boot Camp Challenge. I see now why its called bootcamp; you are doing things in the workout that you would not normally do! Which for me is good. I have been needing a change. I have hit a plateau so now I had to do somethings differently.

What I like most about the challenge is how focused and orgainized. I don't have to go to another site for the workout, everything is all in one spot.

My start weight is 170 lbs with my goal at 150 lbs. I know this challenge will kick start my weight loss to the next level. Coupled with my other life style changes in eating, sleeping and stress management, I see clearly meeting my goal weight. This challenge will get me started on the way there.
