I guess it's working! - Bootcamp update

Saturday, May 24, 2008

Within the last week, three different people have commented that I've lost weight.

The scale says I haven't.

Which must mean that either A. three different people have seen the same wrong thing about me, or B. I've lost inches.

I'm guessing it's the inches. I'm guessing the swimsuit bootcamp has toned and tightened a bunch of my body parts.

Actually, I wore a dress on Thursday, and barely recognized myself in the mirror.

I AM looking smaller! Woohooooooo! Thank you bootcamp, thank you Coach Nicole, and thank you SparkPeople!

Bootcamp update - 5/21/08

I can do tricep dips with a chair!!!!!!!! Two sets of 10!!!!!!!!!! Woohooooooo!!!!!

Even if I can't do plank (due to my foot injury) and no way no how side plank (just can't) and my floor pushups leave a lot to be desired - I can now do tricep dips!!!!!!! Without killing my shoulder, without stopping in the middle!

And that is my measure of success with the bootcamp!

  


SO MUCH FUN!!!!

Monday, May 12, 2008


We went out for bkfst, then went over to the Eco-tour place - got suited up with lifejackets, climbed into the kayaks (watching DH do this was worth it!), paddled about a mile in a lagoon lined with mangroves, beached the kayaks, hiked about 20 minutes on this deserted cay to the far end where there were bizarre rock formations from volcanic activity (you could even see the vein of rock where the lava shot up the chute). Saw cool stuff in the tide pool - baby urchins, a chiton, a brittle or spiny star. And there was a blow hole in the rocks, so when the waves hit it was like a geyser shooting up!!!!! Then hiked back to the beach, and snorkeled for about 45 minutes, saw lots of juvenile fish, some huge fish, a mama and baby barracuda, and several Casseopia jellyfish, which are totally weird looking (like pulsating bubbles!). Then kayaked back.

Then went out for a big lunch, we were both famished after all of that exercise.

It was about a 4 hour trip - just totally FUN!!!!!! - and I'm estimating (based on SP's fitness tracker) I burned about 1800 cals. Wooohoooooooooooo!

    Oh My Gosh Phebes, that sounds like so much fun ! How awesome that you had the opportunity to do that. I would love to do something like that. I love water and to watch sealife. My ex and I had a boat and we actually got to see and interact with a small school of dolphins, here in Florida.That was really cool. I would have loved to swim with them.

I know with all of that action, you definately worked off your breakfast, plus some,lol.

I have walked 429.79 miles since 1/10/08

Thursday, May 08, 2008

How far is that?

Well, according to the Google map distance calculator, that's pretty close to walking from Sacremento to San Francisco to Los Angeles.

New York City to Quebec.

New York City to somewhere in mid-North Carolina.

St. Thomas to the middle of the Dominican Republic, almost to the border with Haiti.

Monrovia, Liberia, to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire.

Rome to Zurich.

Madrid to Montpellier, France.

Paris to Bremen, Germany.

London to Edinburgh to Belfast.

It is EXACTLY the miles from Austin TX to Vicksburg, MS!!!!


I could play with this map all day. But WOW, that's a good distance!!! Especially since I'm supposedly cutting back on my walking due to a foot injury. Huh. Wonder what it will be by the end of the year!!!!!!
