Sexy By Christmas Bootcamp - Day 7

Monday, December 07, 2009

FIRST WEEK SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED! I am SO proud of myself. It has been so easy this time. I get no cravings, I'm more than willing to work out, I'm being active, I'm meeting my calorie limits and eating lots of healthy foods... I feel the change already. Today when me and my sister went shopping I tried on a few things and I felt so beautiful and sexy, I can already see that my hard work is paying off. And on top of everything else I feel much more confident and so much happier to be me than I did before. I'm so glad I decided to do this. Two more weeks and a few days and it's Christmas already. My bootcamp might stop there but I won't! I'll keep on working out and making sure I make healthy food choices in the future as well. I'm so ready to start losing weight again. I think that the time is finally right for this.

Here's how I did:

- 1200-1550 calories
- 12+ glasses of water
- 6+ servings of fruit and veggies
- 60+ minutes of cardio
- no candy/junk food
- strength training; core; 30 minutes

Met all my goals today!

And I walked two hours again today with my sis. I feel pretty exhausted now! I'm ready for bed. Hope you're all doing well, I'm still reading your blogs even though I haven't been commenting that much. I think it's about time I start doing that again! Anyway, I'm sending you lots of love and hugs all the way from Finland!

    And sending love and hugs and a big thumbs up from Michigan, USA right back at you! One of the wonderful things about the internet is making friends all over the world.

Congratulations on a very successful first week! That's awesome that you haven't had to struggle to stay on target, too. That's very encouraging--especially since you also said you have a lot more energy and everything because you're eating right and working out. Fantastic!

Sexy By Christmas Bootcamp - Day 6

Sunday, December 06, 2009

Hey everyone!

Today was such a fun day and I'm glad I got to spend it with my sister (and my best friend) Amanda. I don't have time to write much tonight (I have a test tomorrow and I need to study) but I just wanted to give you guys a little update on how I did today.

- 12+ glasses of water emoticon
- 6+ servings of fruit & veggies emoticon
- no candy/junk food emoticon
- 60+ mins of cardio emoticon

I met all my goals except for having 6+ servings of fruit & veggies - and I have an explanation for it! I was supposed to go grocery shopping today but I had forgotten that all stores are closed today as it is Independence Day here in Finland. So I had to settle for the fruit and vegetables I had at home, which wasn't much: some kiwis and tomatoes. I got three servings of fresh produce, which wasn't enough for me to meet my goal. But it's okay anyway, and I'll do better tomorrow.

No exercise today by the way, Sunday is my day off. I've been doing strength training every day this week so I think it's only fair to give my muscles some time to rest. But my sister and I walked for two hours around the town today, and I burned 600 calories!

Tomorrow it's been a week since I started my bootcamp and I'm still going strong. The best part is that I don't have any cravings, and I'm so happy for it. I think I can finally do this for myself!

Hope you all had a great, relaxing weekend! Hugs!

Now it's time for me to get back to studying before going to bed. Until tomorrow! :)

    I'm glad that you had a good day with your sister. Sounds like you had fun. *grin*

I've read that it's really important to give your muscles some time to rest between work outs--that's why sparks recommends either working out at least every other day for strength training or concentrating on different muscle groups if you strength train every day. I take weekends off my "official" schedule, though Saturday I usually do yoga anyway. But Sundays are my sloth days.

Congrats on meeting most of your goals yet again! I can sympathize on the shopping issue--that's one of the things that trip us up a lot. We don't buy a lot of canned veggies (I don't like canned veggies for the most part, and my husband can't eat any of them) and we have a small fridge/freezer here, so we only buy limited amounts of perishables and fridge foods at a time--but that means we have to go shopping every few days. If we miss, because something comes up, or someone gets sick or something, we usually have back up foods in the house, but it's usually not as healthy.

Best of luck on your exam tomorrow!!!

Sexy by Christmas Bootcamp - Day 5

Saturday, December 05, 2009

Hello everyone!

What a great day. I went shopping in the afternoon and ended up buying new leggings and a clutch bag. I tried on a bunch of shoes as well, but couldn't really decide which ones would be the best so I decided to sleep on it and hit the stores again tomorrow! Haha.

I did really well today and met all my goals (again!)!

- 1200-1550 calories
- 12+ glasses of water
- 60+ mins of cardio
- 6+ servings of fruit and veggies
- no candy/junk food
- strength training; full body; 25 mins

And to make a great day even better, I just got a call from my sister Amanda saying she's coming over for a couple of days! I'm so happy! It's so good to have some company. We can do all kinds of fun girly stuff that I never do with Tommi! I've been feeling like going out for a while now, maybe we'll do just that next week. It would be so much fun!

I rented PS. I Love You today, and I just finished watching it. I cried through the whole thing, it was so beautiful and touching. And besides, Gerard Butler and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are two of my favorite actors. (And yes, they ARE hot!)

It's time for me to get ready for bed. I have a lot to do tomorrow before Amanda gets here, so I better get some sleep.

Hope you're all enjoying your Saturday!

Sexy by Christmas Bootcamp - Day 4

Friday, December 04, 2009

Woohoo, day 4 successfully completed!

Here's how I did today:

- 1200-1500 calories emoticon
- 12+ glasses of water emoticon
- 6+ servings of fruit and veggies emoticon
- no candy/junk food emoticon
- 60+ mins of cardio emoticon
- strength training; lower body; 20 mins emoticon

I met all my goals again today and I couldn't be happier! I also got some great news today saying that not only did I pass yesterday's test but I also got an excellent grade to boot (I got 4; 5 is the highest you can get). I'm so happy! I never expected to get such a high grade, I wasn't even sure if I'd pass. But I did!

I'm spending this weekend in Turku alone, and I miss Tommi. We usually spend the weekends together even though we don't live together anymore. It feels a little strange, but I'm trying not to think about it too much. At least I'll now have a little 'me time'! I can do the stuff I enjoy doing. Tomorrow, I'm going shopping with a friend. I refuse to feel lonely today. After all, I'm seeing him again on Thursday - that's right around the corner!

Have a great Friday everyone - relax, unwind and enjoy the beginning of the weekend!

Sexy by Christmas Bootcamp - Day 3

Thursday, December 03, 2009

Still going strong! Day three, everyone. I'm telling you, I can already feel the difference. My energy level is through the roof (although I'm a little tired physically - but mentally, I feel so great and motivated!). My clothes ALREADY fit a lot better since I'm not overeating. I'm gaining momentum every day and I feel confident that I can finally jump start my weight loss and get rid of these extra pounds!

Here's how I did today:

- 1200-1500 calories emoticon
- 6 servings of fruit and veggies emoticon
- 12+ glasses of water emoticon
- no candy/junk food emoticon
- 60+ mins of cardio emoticon
- strength training; full body; 30 mins emoticon

Good for me!

Now I can just relax for today and study for tomorrow linguistics exam. Today's grammar exam went pretty well in my opinion - at least I know I did my best and that's all I can do. You have to get 75 % of the answers correct in order to pass the exam, which I think is just brutal. And on top of that, there was also this one exercise where you weren't allowed to make ANY mistakes or you would not be able to pass the exam (even if every other answer on the test was correct). Crazy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though.

And now for some inspirational pictures:









Working out pays off! ;) (Don't know why she's drinking coffee while she's working out though.. Haha!)

Until tomorrow!

Keep on sparkling!
