Sunday is a tough day for me to exercise, it is usually my day off for the week, but with bootcamp and watching the neighbor's dog... I got more exercise today than I do sometimes on the weekdays! A 30 minute walk with the dog, and 10 minute kickboxing, plus everything I was running around doing today with church and planning for a meal for a funeral tomorrow... WHEW!
The first week is done, and I must say it went faster than I thought it would! I am not sore like I thought I would be too since some exercises are new to me, so that is very encouraging! I really look forward to the new week, but since all the exercise routines are the same this week, I may just post one blog at the end of the week.
I have a very busy week ahead of me! Monday my husband preaches a funeral and I will be cooking and serving the meal to the family and friends (with the help of some church ladies of course), plus we have piano lessons on Monday and I babysit too!! Tuesday and Wednesday will be cleaning days since I have my mom and dad, plus 3 older college kids coming home on Sunday night. Thursday I walk at the mall with friends and clean the church and pack to go to see my kids. Friday we leave to go to see my college kids sing in a concert at their college, Saturday is a big picnic with the college faculty, staff, students and parents, and Sunday two of my kids graduate... WOW... what a busy week it will be!!! My parents will be coming to the graduation and will be coming to stay with us for a week or two afterwards... so much to clean and plan for... but I can't wait!!
If you think of me, pray that I will NOT gain weight over the weekend... I always struggle when I am away from home on a trip!

WOW, yesterday was a busy day... I didn't get to my workouts until 8:30 at night... UGH... It was hard, and I know if I was not doing the bootcamp, I would not have worked out at all!! I would have used the excuse that I was too busy and got plenty of exercise doing all the other things I did today. So, I can see another benefit from doing the bootcamp this month!
This morning I already got up, walked the neighbors dog and did my workouts... now to shower and do all the other things I have planned for today... cleaning the church, grocery shopping, cooking, finish up my laundry, cleaning my house too, etc... whew...
Also... We put a new goal on Conservative Christian Ladies Tea Time Team... "Stay within your calorie range goal each day" - wow... I must say this goal has been harder than I thought it would be! Every night I am tempted to go over my goal! So it makes me wonder... have I been going over in the past... and just not realizing it??
So many things I am still learning about myself, my eating habits, exercise habits, etc.. I am very excited!!

I walked 36 minutes this morning, then went to do my bootcamp exercises... WOW... I found muscles that I didn't know I had! She had a few exercises that actually hurt! I guess we get used the the same old crunches, etc... and don't realize we are actually missing a lot of other important muscles... I definitely need to look into new exercises or pick that as my focus more on My Fitness Coach!!! Now for the challenge, I have to eat 3 servings of veggies, which should be easy!! WOO HOO!!! I have lost 1 1/2 pounds since starting bootcamp!

Well, I have done all exercise routines and challenges for the first three days of bootcamp! WOO HOO... plus most of my regular exercising too! I am excited that this morning I had lost a half pound, but seeing I hadn't lost any for a week, I guess it was about time!
I am really enjoying it so far, and look forward each day to what we are going to be challenged with. The 3 fruits yesterday was easy... I LOVE FRUIT!! The push ups today were hard... I can do any arm exercises, but I HATE push ups... I enjoy the exercise routines with Nichole, although too short personally!
I hope I win one of the weekly prizes or the BIG prize!

Today I did my first ever kickboxing workout... and although I do aerobics about 5 days a week, I can see how this small 10 minute video pulled on some muscles a little more than what I am used to!! I really enjoyed the kicking and punching and look forward to seeing what else we will do!
If you have not joined the bootcamp challenge, I do encourage you to try it! It might be worth it, if you win the $500!! Today is the first day, so you are not far behind! It is only for 4 weeks... GO FOR IT!!
