Since Jan. 15th, two weeks, I've been working out and tracking. I'm doing the 28 day Bootcamp Workout Challenge and I feel pretty good. I'm really proud of myself for sticking with it for two weeks. I love the strength training videos that are done once a day. I did skip out on working out and a video yesterday, Monday, but I'm making up for it and giving myself an "extra" day 7 tomorrow for week 2. I could not find the energy to do much of anything after work yesterday but I have to start slow. I'm only 12 weeks this Sunday out from having brain surgery.
I myself on Tuesdays, today I didn't gain but I didn't lose either, normally I would be too frustrated to continue but I'm not giving up this time. I'm going to take the positive and run with it, I didn't gain.
I want to make some short term goals for myself to maybe help motivate me or to help keep me going. Week three is 5 servings a day for fruits and veggies , always a hard one for me but I'm thinking with some planning I can do it. I also want to start getting those 8 glasses of water in daily.
I'm 5.6 pounds from a 10 pound loss, I want to reward myself, new pair of workout pants when complete.

Hello. I've been through a lot these past couple of weeks and I thought it was blog worthy. It all started with the wrost headache of my life. I thought it was a sinus infection, it was so bad I was off work all week. Friday my husband and I headed to Target but he said my speech started to slur and it made him so nervous he took me to the ER. The ER gave me a CT scan and found bleeding in my brain. I was admitted to the ICU that night. Come to find out I suffered from a brain aneurysm, I'm only 29, so this can happen at any given time. I was then transferred to a hospital more equipped to take care of this type of issue. I was transported on a bumpy ambulance ride to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo, MI, where they proceeded with brain sugergy (yes, brain surgery, scary, I know). I now have about 34 staples in my head going down the right side of my face. The doctor told me he was nervous after surgery because I kept having brain spasms but kept saying I was a poster child for this short of condition since I was doing so well afterwards, no double vision, no headahces, just a lot of swelling from surgery. I'm so Thankful to be here today and finally at home. I believe that I had a guardian angel watching out for me, otherwise I'm not sure how I made it. Just note to self, get those headaches checked out, no matter what. :) Happy Thanksgiving!!!

My summer break plan from BLC is to work hard with the SAC group. I want to start the new BLC challenge with more motivation and less pounds on the scale! I plan on hitting my BLC goal that I did not meet this round. I plan to blog more often of my struggles and triumphs!

I think I'm going to add another Goal to my list. Write a blog entry everyday. I'm hoping if I write a blog about my day, what I've accomplished or didn't accomplish, it will help keep me more accountable. Also, I think I'll learn what works and what doesn't by writing it all out.
To start off Day 1, I did not join the gym today. I called the gym a couple of times this morning but was unable to get ahold of anyone. I was hoping to avoid spending my lunch hour going in there to sign up, since I like going home for lunch. I'll either suck it up and stop on my lunch tomorrow or since I now have Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off, I'll stop in on Monday!
I ate half a chocolate chip cookie today, so I've had my intake of sweets for the week, boo! I kind of forgot! Hopefully I can stay true to my goal and not have any sweets for the rest of the week. No pop today for me, which isn't usually a big concern of mine. I can usually stay away from pop, it's not something I have to drink everyday. I only drank 32 oz of water today, blah. However, I did track my food . I stayed within my range but I think I had waaayy too much sodium. So note to self, watch the sodium!!! No dollar store or Walgreens today.
I went for a walk after work, it was only 35 minutes but I still went. I was on my way back towards home and decided to run, starting at 1.75 miles on my nike +. I told myself I needed to to my street, granted it felt like a big distance from where I was starting, I'm not a runner nor do I ever run. I started off slow, trying to concentrate on my breathing and not so much on anything else. Before I knew it I made it to my street and kept on going!!! I made it all the way to my apartment with no stopping. I only ran .55 miles in 6 or 7 minutes but for me that's !!! I can't wait to try it again!!
I'm signing off for the night but will blog again tomorrow!!! I need to complete TNT tomorrow!!! Good Night!!!
