Sitting on a conference call

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

and decided to blog....lol!!!! This is truly a call I don't need to be on but since I was requested for it, here I sit...gotta love WORK!!!!

I didn't make it to bootcamp this morning...I just wasn't in the mood for it...so I rested in bed and it felt GREAT to do that....I will be at bootcamp in the morning though...I have never missed 2 days in a row...but during lunch I went up there and did 45 mins of intervals on the treadmill...it was a little more crowded than the last time I was there during the day...Scott (Amanda's hubby) was there with his bootcamp class working them out....

I also plan to hit the gym again tonight for Body Pump and MAYBE some more treadmill stuff....we'll see how that goes because right now, I only have Body Pump in me....lol!!!

Oh well, back to work!!!!!!

The sled is not my friend....

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Well, it was no one's friend this morning at bootcamp...we all were grunting, huffing and puffing with it....lol....today was cardio/abs and my thighs are on fire!! Pushing and pulling that sled up and down wears you out!!!!

I have to hit the gym today to do more cardio so I am going tonight...I want to get some more running in if I can and going at lunch isn't going to happen today...I should really TRY to make it happen though...I have a tendency to stray in the evening and not get to the gym...something about this nice weather and longer days makes me lazy!!!!

I am glad that I come workout in the morning and get it over with so I don't feel "too" guilty for skipping the evening sessions but I know I need to be doing them....the more cardio I do the better..I have goals in mind that I need to be working towards....it's just a constant debate in my mind...good vs. evil....lol!

Tomorrow we will do legs at bootcamp...I'll have to keep that in mind when I go do cardio this evening....if I go...just kidding...lol!!!

Enjoy your day!

A winner is......

Monday, April 12, 2010

Whew...it's Monday and it took EVERYTHING in me to make it to bootcamp this morning...but I DID make it....since I was the lone ranger for about 20 minutes I spent that time on the elliptical talking to Amanda...

She had her competition this weekend and she didn't place....she wasn't bummed out or anything and was quite glad for the learning experience...she only had 5 weeks of hard training whereas it normally requires a 12-20 week commitment because of the phases they go through (muscle build up, etc.)...there is another competition in August that she is going to do...she starts training this week and Big Sexy will be helping her out....(I swear he should be in the competition himself...he could hold his own I'm sure up there)....

Kendra (another trainer at the gym) won her competition and she came in this morning and brought her trophy up there...she is leaving it at the gym because of all the support and encouragement she got.....and there were a LOT of gym members that came out to the competition and supported everyone....I believe there were 4 people from the gym total in the competition and they all placed...except Amanda....but that's ok...she is a winner in our book!!!

She said she knows she needs to put on some more muscle (she is small) and she said she knew she wasn't going to win or place because all the women they selected to move on to the final round had fake boobs....lol!!! I don't think they should be allowed to really "compete" because they aren't building up their natural muscles/body but hey, I guess that's why I'm not a judge....Kendra was in the "figure" competition and she is built.....I thought that was her first competition but she is classified as a "pro".....

But everyone should be proud of themselves...it takes courage and a lot of confidence to get up on a stage in a roomful of people and strut your stuff for judgment!!!

Bootcamp was biceps/back this morning and we finished up with a couple of interval sets....a good, steady workout...I plan to hit Body Pump tonight...

Enjoy your day!

The week begins....

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Not much going on today...just a nice, relaxing and lazy Sunday...my mom is still in Chicago and everyone else was off doing their thing...so I just hung out, cleaned up and got ready for this week....

I also got up and went to the gym....I did 75 minutes on the treadmill...I did intervals and burned 560 calories(according to the treadmill)....I need to invest in a HRM that counts calories....the one that I have is the base model so it just shows my HR.....I'll look into the different one that Polar has and see what works for me...I don't want to spend a lot of money on one though...

This week I plan to do bootcamp (of course) and also I want to do 3 days of cardio (intervals on the treadmill/elliptical)...that sounds like a whole lot of "gym" time....so we'll see...maybe I can get to the gym a couple of times during my lunch....hmmmm....

Enjoy the rest of the weekend......

    You never can trust what the machines say, : /. I never have - really. I just workout hard and long and that's good enough for me. Of course though, I just track what they say usually, haha.
