Still doing the bootcamp

Monday, April 12, 2010

I'm on day 10 of the Sweatsuit to Swimsuit bootcamp. I'm doing this mostly by myself but posting the exercises and daily challenges on 3 teams I lead/co-lead. So I've done them all. I did this bootcamp last year and wanted to repeat it. I also joined the SparkPeople's Official Plateau Buster Challenge team. Still nothing is working to delete these pounds. All I can say is only 40 some more days until I get HOME to the USA and can talk to a Dr. to see if my thyroid is out of whack again.

Been reading blogs today too, came across one persons blog. All I can say is this is one sad person, this person has 5 aliases she uses to talk to herself and she begged people to read her blog and leave comments and be her friend, then nominate her for motivator of the day/week/month. Her 5 aliases belong to 1 main team but 1 screen name belongs to 43 teams. I couldn't really read what she was talking about because of the spelling/grammer thing and the "text" language thing. I moved on to a really inspiring blog and a couple of hilarious blogs. I hope that lady gets some help.

    Glad to hear about the Plateau Busting team for my team members needing it. This SP site is so full of opportunities, I sometimes forget or haven't gotten to them yet.

Glad you will be home to check with Dr. soon. emoticon

This is the 5th time I've tried to upload this.
We had a sandstorm on Easter Sunday. Here is some of what it looked like.

    Very nice video. It probably was not much fun to experience a sand storm because blowing sand hurts when it hits your skin.

    Very cool! Looks so normal!

Bootcamp revisited

Monday, April 05, 2010

Today is day 3 of Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Bootcamp revisited. I am doing this bootcamp to help boost my exercise a bit. I am doing this bootcamp on 3 teams that I lead to help keep me accountable and do the exercise. So far I've done 3 days and the challenge exercises.

4 times now I have tried to upload a video clip of our sandstorm yesterday but it says it's 100% done and sits there for 2 hours and does nothing so I gave up. I walked over to our little store about 10:30AM to get a couple of things. CAme home and started cooking. I looked up around 11 and the sky was that eerie orange. You couldn't see the villas across the street, it was miserable. The sandstorm died down about 4PM but everything is a mess. It was 104 in the afternoon. It's like a blast furnace when you open the door.

On to day 4............

    Sounds so fun! emoticon Cooking? Want a job?
I have not been able to upload anything onto the website from here. Don't know what the problem is so there are no photos for others to look at.

Baseball season starts today! Woo Hoo.
I'm not going to be like the rude, obnoxious "OTHER team" fans and talk snot about any other team but mine. Hope it's a GREAT season!

The SparkPeople 2010 daily desk Calendar note for this weekend is:
You can enjoy a handful of small jelly beans (about 25) for 100 calories. Remember that one handful can easily turn into two or three, so enjoy your portion and then keep your hands out of the candy basket.

That's easy for me today, there is NO Easter baskets or candy here.

    I'm not into baseball (even though I was raised in a Mets family) but I know how people can get with this sport.


As for the jelly beans - I think I am going to stop at the store and pick up Jelly Bellies. They are all natural with no high fructose corn syrup... not only better for your "diet" but also the flavors ROCK!

Happy Easter!

Starting a Bootcamp Challenge today

Saturday, April 03, 2010

Today I am starting a bootcamp challenge on three of my teams. I liked the Sweatsuit to Swimsuit bootcamp from last May so I am going to do that one. I am doing it as a challenge to keep me motivated and accountable to do the exercises. This bootcamp workout will be in addition to the cardio and strength training workouts I already do, I just want someone to do this with me.

Due to the new enlightenment of the lack of privacy policy with SparkPeople, I am not going to publish my stats here. Unless you have a private page, try a google search of your SparkPeople name and see what comes up!

    It is a shame that they don't have a privacy policy. It shouldn't matter that the site is free, so is FB, but you can't just get information about anyone.

Good luck with the boot camp.

    Wow. Robin...you are right. What a shame that Spark sold out. I was hoping it was private...Weight Watchers is...it is because it is free. I better watch what I say and post then.


I googled and was shocked!
