Back to Bootcamp!

Today is day ten of my current streak!

February is off to a great start, and I hope I can keep this momentum going. But one thing I've learned is that you never know when life will throw you a curve ball. Like last month... I started doing the Coach Nicole 28 Day Bootcamp DVD, and I was really loving it. I even wrote a blog review of it. (If you're interested, here's the link to my blog; www.sparkpeople.com/mypa

)

So anyway, there I was, on track and making progress...and then my hubby got sick. For almost a week, he was in pain and unable to eat. Finally, I convinced him to go to the hospital, and we found out that he had a ruptured appendix. He had surgery and was in the hospital for 6 days. When he got home, he was pretty weak and I had to take care of him. During all of this, I stopped working out, so obviously I didn't finish doing the Bootcamp DVD.

But here we are in a new month, and hubby is recovering well...and I've started over with Bootcamp! Best of all, I'm not doing it alone. Several of my Sparkfriends are also doing the workout this month, and we are supporting each other on the Countdown to Spring team.


I am really looking forward to getting through the entire Bootcamp workout this month. Even though I only did two weeks of it in January, I was really enjoying it. And since I'm liking this DVD so much, I've gone ahead and bought Coach Nicole's Total Body Sculpting DVD, too! That one is going to be my workout in March!

As of today, there are 43 days until Spring, and I am determined to do my best day by day to make as much progress as possible. I know that not every day will be great. Life might throw another curveball at me...but for now I am on track and taking full advantage of the opportunities of each new day.

    It's the reality of life, those curve balls, being prepared is the only way to dodge them before we get hit. Glad it's all working out for you and your husband.

    I understand what you are going through. I had just signed up for the 28 day boot camp and my husband had some sort of heart attack or seizure. The doctor still doesn't know what happened. My husband was in the hospital for a few days so I didn't do the exercises and on top of that I went into the black pit of stress binging.

The good thing is that we don't have to write ourselves off. We are still in better condition that when we started sparking and we have so much to gain by picking ourselves up and starting again. LOL

    I love your positive attitude!! Every day is another opportunity to start again! I'm doing the bootcamp this month too, and it's been great for the first four days. Here's to keeping it going for the whole month!

Spark Cheers!!

    So glad that hubby is doing well. Men are sometimes great for getting our sympathy and we fall for it. :) Really Pixie I am glad it is all going better for you. You are on a roll and we are all cheering you on. You are young and able so do it while you can. The older you get the harder it gets to be and stay healthy. Hugs as always, Jude

    I loved all of your pictures of motivation and copied them for myself - thank you for all the great reminders of how to keep going no matter what! I REALLY needed that today ... everyday really ... but especially today. I haven't been on SPARK in months and I've missed it. I do better when I'm around such positive individuals who are always so encouraging and ready to lend words of support, insight and information. What a blessing.

I'm really thrilled for you and so happy to hear your husband is doing better, too! I wish you continued success! - Bliss!

    Glad to hear your husband is doing well now! And back to work for you! How long is the DVD? Each workout? I'm in support of you and the others trying to get in shape for Spring becuase that's my goal as well! I have set myself a shopping day for April 5th to hit the stores and re-vamp my wardrobe! And also get back into some clothes that are still good and haven't been worn in years! We Can Do It!
