DAY 2 BOOT CAMP: No Need for a Nap :-)

Monday, May 04, 2009

WHEW!!! I've really worked up a good sweat here, and just in 10 minutes; and that's includes a warm-up and cool-down stretch.

This morning I did water aerobics for cardio, did a little grocery shopping, had lunch and felt the old afternoon lul hit me. I wanted to take a nap so bad I could hardly keep my eyes opened. But I had told myself earlier that I would do the Boot Camp workout a little after I ate lunch. I knew if I went to sleep I wouldn't wake up until it was time to pick up my grandson for his Taekwon Do class at 4 (it's 3 now).

So, making that move to be committed and true to my word, I put on some "inspiritational music" - and wouldn't you know it? I woke up!!! I loaded the Boot Camp UTube Video and got busy. My legs may be a little wobbly because that was the focus for today's workout. But this is just what the doctor ordered: Build up the muscles in these thighs and hips (much needed after the hip replacements).

I am so optimistic about the results I will be getting from this Boot Camp. Already my mind and body's work is uplifting my spirits. I feel so refreshed and without a NAP emoticon

    Good for you! You may be in a bikini by the end. You are a machine when it comes to exercising. LOL You put me to shame. But I do what I can and get my heartbeat up and moving.
Take Care, Lainye

Day 1 of Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Boot Camp - MORE!!!

Sunday, May 03, 2009

Since joining SparkPeople on March 28, 2009 I have lost 9 lbs. emoticon

Tracking my nutrition and fitness program, moving through my diet stages, learning new habits, checking in daily, participating in team discussions, reading articles, and reading/responding to numerous blogs have all prepared me for what I feel is a major step, Coach Nicole's Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Boot Camp.

Am I ready? YES!!!
Am I nervous about completing the camp? YES!!!
Am I determined to follow the plan to completion? YES!!!

Are there any other questions?

Yes. Why do a Boot Camp? I've read the comments of those who have had amazing results. My goal is not to fit into a bikini when this is over, but to be stronger and have more stamina to go to the next level in my fitness program. I've been working on my upper body to get to the place where I can do a modified plank. Hopefully, by the time this Boot Camp ends I'll be able to do it for 60 seconds. Currently I can barely make it to 30 seconds.

Along the way I think I'll be challenged to set and meet other goals. I want to accept these challenges and become a more committed athlete.


OKAY!!! I just finished the most intense 10-minute workout I've ever done, and I lowered the intensity on the jumping jacks and tri-level kicks.

Do I want more? YES!!!

I've signed up for Coach Nicoles Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Boot Camp that starts this Sunday. Now granted, there have been many Springs that I went all out to look good in a swimsuit. When I read the info a couple of days ago and made the decision to take on the challenge my primary interest was to break the plateau I seemed to be in. Week before last I lost no weight, last week I lost one pound, and when I, with bated breath, weighed myself today, to my surprise and happiness, I am now two pounds lighter. Maybe the plateau is broken and maybe it isn't. I'm going ahead with my first ever Boot Camp Challenge and look forward to a rewarding experience.

I have not lost any weight this week. Neither have I gained any and that is a very good thing. I've done the work, following my nutrition plan, and exercising. I've even added cardio and strength training exercises this week. I feel really good about what I'm doing and am inspired to keep doing what I'm doing. I've read great articles and have received wonderful support from team members. So, I must say I'm a little amazed that I'm not bummed out at not reaching my 2 lbs a week goal. I'm in it for the long haul and my primary goal is to change the way I eat and be more physically fit. I've been doing that this past week and couldn't be more happy.

    Great attitude. There are weeks I have lost nothing. But if you keep going it will drop off. Stay focused on being healthy - the scale is only a number. Focus on the quality of your calories and fitness you couldn't do before.

    You certainly have a good attitude! You are right though, you are doing everything you need to and all of the sudden the weight will be gone. Keep going the way you are and you will make it! emoticon

99 cents Store :-)

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

I've been able to purchase much of my food from the 99 cents store. Fruit, vegies, frozen fish and chicken, dairy, can goods, herbs and spices, you name it, it's there. I stock up on the good stuff and then adapt my meal plans to what I have in the way of staple foods. Fresh stuff I restock every few days.

    I wish we had a 99 cent store like that. I have bought spices but we do not have fresh stuff at all. I do shop Aldi which has good prices as well as our local Little Market that has fabulous fruits and veggies and if you want meat, they trim it while you are standing there and then get it weighed.

  I didn't know that the 99cent store sold anything but processed (canned and packaged foods) The onein Mobile ALabama has never had fresh veggies and fruit--and I've never seen any frozen foods in there either.

where are you located?
