Day 14 of Bootcamp Challenge

Saturday, January 17, 2009

I did my bootcamp workout video but had to modify it since I couldn't use the ball. I did manage to do all of the exercises and did some extra crunches afterwards. I only walked 30 minutes today, rather the term should be waddled and found out that my mile point was the same as before I took the last reading so I'm confused now. I know they didn't move the roads and I didn't take any short cuts either. It was 78 when I walked but it seemed warmer.

Well I weighed myself & took measurements, I gained a pound and didn't loose any inches. Well at least I am getting a workout. Kind of sucks that I haven't lost any weight or lost inches though.

I tried to tape my stability ball with duct tape but it didn't work, I hope DH can find another one.

It is really overcast today, my weather page says it's supposed to rain tomorrow. We'll see.

    Don't forget you maybe gaining muscle with all that exercise and it weighs more than fat. Thats what happened to me. I just kept gaining muscle and I didn't lose inches at first either. I know you're making progress just keep it up.

Husband + cat + stability ball don't mix

Friday, January 16, 2009

I was out of the room when DH asks the cat, "Can you balance on this stability ball?" I heard the collar bell jingle and a mad dash, came into the room to see the ball deflating on the floor. I told DH no and he poked a hole in it. DH says how? I thought it was heavy duty. Well it is but you can't put a cat on a stability ball. Geeze, I really hope he can find me another one in this god forsaken country. I am not a happy camper right now, I was having fun with the bootcamp challenge.

    I wish I could Hope, it's got a huge tear in it, I'll have to see if duct tape will work.

    Maybe you could air it up and put super glue on the hole or holes. You can put it in water to find the holes.

Day 13 of Bootcamp workout

Friday, January 16, 2009

Woo Hoo! Even though it's our "Sunday" here, I did my walk and my day 13 bootcamp workout. I only did a 30 minute walk but did the day 1 cardio kickboxing workout video and then did the day 13 again from yesterday. I DO feel good. And since today is laundry day, I do stretching and bending when I switch over laundry since I can't easily reach in the bottom of the wash machine to get that blasted sock on the bottom in the back. Also did stretching when I empited my dishwasher today too.
Think I'm on day 5 of 8 cups of water a day.

I have also tried to spread the spark today! I posted Spark messages on my cross stitch message boards and on my blog.

  


Day 12 of Boot camp

Thursday, January 15, 2009

It's my weekend here, I got bored so I did the bootcamp videos for day 11, 12 & 13 plus the bonus videos. Wow, that was a work out and I feel good! I don't do cardio on the weekends but I did find my jump rope so I will have to do that later.

DH went and got supper from the Turkish restaurant tonight! The first time in 2 1/2 months that I haven't cooked!! WOO HOO. Lamb chops, turkish bread, & salad.

    at least the exercise hasn't stopped your appetite. Sounds good. We ate in a turkish restaurant in Epcot at Disney World when we went there. Good Food.

Day 11 of Boot Camp

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

I did my 2 mile 45 minute walk this morning, then did the Day 11 ab video then did the bonus ab video. That was a workout but I do feel better.
2 miles is 3 .25 circuits on the main road of the compound here and this morning it was cool and VERY windy, I had a head wind for a 1/4 mile each time I rounded 1 particular bend.

For 5 days in a row now I've been able to get down those 8 cups of water a day. Some days are easy and some days not so easy. I'm just not a water drinker.

    You're doing great drinking your water. I didn't like it at first either but I got accosstuned to it. Now I drink it in the morning and that leaves the afternoon for tea, green tea, and pop whenever I indulge. I also drink more water at times. I was told by my doctor not to go over the limit too much. 10 or 11 is sufficien if drinking more.
