Keeping Up With Bootcamp Again...

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Now that I'm back on track, I'm keeping up again! emoticon emoticon

I can't wait to see how my "ab roll" feels tomorrow after the bonus ab challenge today. It was definitely a HUGE ab focus day. I'm anxious for weigh-in again already and can't wait to see where I'm at at the end of the month.

I've gotten a lot of self-confidence from my participation so far in Bootcamp, but we all know that external motivation is still worth a lot...

Let me digress for a second... I'm not one to put a lot of time/effort into my appearance. I work with adult male inmates in a maximum security prison. I don't do the makeup and "pretty hair" because it would draw unnecessary attention to myself. I don't want the inmates to see me as "female" necessarily. I want them to strictly focus on me as the position/title/etc that I hold instead. It's a lot better that way for everyone involved... Well, I made a deal with some of my girlfriends from work that I would put forth a little more effort and straighten my hair every once in a while. One of my co-workers saw my hair "done" for the first time last week... And she said that my hair looked really great! Well, the next day, I went back to my normal routine and she said... "Wow, you weren't lying when you said you weren't going to put effort into your appearance all the time." WHAT?! Who says that?

Anyway, back to the present... This same woman who blurts out exactly how she feels (very bluntly I might add) looked at me today and said... "You look great! I can tell you've been firming up I can tell."

I felt amazing just by having her say that to me. Having other people notice your hard work and accomplishments really does provide motivation and give you the extra motivation that keeps you moving in a positive direction!

    YOU GO GIRL!!! You are creating a body that is strong and balanced! Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a great person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals! "Having other people notice your hard work and accomplishments really does provide motivation and give you the extra motivation that keeps you moving in a positive direction!" That is a wonderful quote I just read somewhere (by you) lol, but is so very true. Keep up the great work!!! Everyone will notice!
God bless you.
Love and hugs,

Bootcamp Update!!!

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

I used my "unscheduled day off" yesterday when I went to the doctor with Momma to get myself back on track. The Steeler game and my "slice and dice" mishap with my fingers really got me behind on the bootcamp videos. I kept up with my other workouts, but I needed to do the Coach Nicole videos. I did 4 days worth yesterday!!! This meant I was back on track for today... I feel great. Today's workout is one of my favorites... I always REALLY feel it in my butt afterwards, and I had fun with My Fitness Coach. All in all, a very productive day!

Welcome Corry-Lee!!!

Monday, January 12, 2009

I have to give a shout out today to one of my oldest (as in had the longest not age) friends... Corry, I'm so glad you decided to join the Spark Family! I hope this site is able to help you as it has helped me. I wish you many successes in the new year! I love you lots!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

To keep a record... I am up .5 lb. That actually makes me happy since this is my "bad week," and I may have also gained some muscle this week... I'm keeping at it and not weighing in again until next week. We'll see what that brings.

Keep Sparkin' everyone!

    I am so excited Corry has joined also! Water weight gain happens to the best of us girls. Hopefully soon I will be too old for that schmuck though...I mean, enough is enough already!! emoticon
You are working hard and I am sure you will see a loss at your next weigh-in.
God bless you, sweetie.
Love and hugs,
Mom

SUPER STEELER SUNDAY!!!

Sunday, January 11, 2009

I'm worn out from yelling!!! Just got back from the game! WOW! That opening score had me scared, but we came back and BEAT the BOLTS!!! The game had it's share of excitement... Right after our second score (near the end of the first half), my DH dumped an entire hot chocolate all over me from the waist down. I have to admit I was more than a little upset. I was wet and cold and irritated. My fingers still hurt and were throbbing like crazy. I got back in the game fast though, and it took my mind off of everything else but my STEELERS!!! Now to decide whether or not to got to next week's game against the ratbirds... We can get seats again, and who doesn't want to watch the Steelers beat up on the dirty birds again!?!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Weigh in is tomorrow... Fingers crossed that my hard work pays off at the scale!
