Bonus - Done - 3 sets (10 reps) reverse crunch

Day 8 - 5/11/08 - Skipped video - cardio = 4 hr kayak/hike/snorkel trip - I estimate at least 2.5 to 3 hours of activity - FABULOUS! Also did a ton of stretching yoga holds at home to prevent stiff and sore muscles.

Bonus - Done - Eat whole grains - whole grain multi bagel w/ bkfst; whole multigrain bread w/ lunch; granola bar snack; 100% semolina pasta with dinner (okay, white, but I have 37 gr of fiber, so I figured regular pasta with tartufo salsa would be a splurge).



BOOTCAMP UPDATE 5.20.08

Despite taking 3 days off due to a severe allergic reaction to mango, I'm finding the bootcamp exercises easier, and I can do more reps per set, and complete 2 sets without resting.

And - best - I can feel a difference as I exercise, particularly in my thighs (which need help).

I don't see much difference in my abs, though.

Thinking out loud - maybe I'll keep these routines, put them in the tracker, alternate through them for my ST. Would be good for the summer travelling ST.

    Doing a great job. I do a lot of cardio, walking, stepping etc but these short videos are really something else. Yesterday I managed all but the push ups and just could not get my body to work it on out. (lol) but didn't give up. I want this to jump start my body again. God bless, and keep up the good work, Ginny
