I went to a brewer game and DIDN'T have the nachos in the baseball cap, or the beer and peanuts or the long licorice rope. I ate before I went and was content with a diet coke. Don't get me wrong, I had my days where I had my red vines or my cappuccino but the true reality is that "I gotta Live!" If this is a lifestyle change instead of a diet, I will have those those things in my life,. The key is to own those moments just like I own the good days and... Thu, 6 Aug 2009 22:11:32 EST The difference is me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2254773 Things are going well. Boot camp isn't getting any easier but I'm starting to accept what I already knew.... Losing weight isn't easy. <BR> <BR> My boot camp instructor was looking at my food log and noticed I seem to be having a love affair with Paul Newman. Not the good, healthy, light italian dressing Paul Newman, the other one...you know the one, the rich, tasty, full fat Creamy Caesar Paul Newman. I know it goes against what I'm trying to accomplish but I feel that if this is suppose... Thu, 23 Jul 2009 23:17:21 EST 2 Down 14 To Go http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2248747 I survived and actually thrived today. My day was as follows: 5am-30 day Shred- I was sore in my core and arms from yesterday and so I did the first level. I had my Yoga class over my lunch hour and then did boot camp at 6pm. Today was hard but not as crazy as yesterday. I love that they mix it up. I made a point of taking an allergy pill and NOT spraying myself down with bug spray....I think one of those two things (or both) may have contributed to my shortness of breath yesterday. ... Tue, 21 Jul 2009 22:19:46 EST Reality Check http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2245672 Today was day one of exercise bootcamp....WOW....I guess I thought because I've been exercising it would be....not easy, but easier. NOPE. It was harsh. During the suicide drills, I was wondering how I was going to make myself come back the next day. Running was an effort, very different from my treadmill runs but I was also having a little tightness in my chest, similar to when I'm around cats...tomorrow, I will take an allergy pill and see if that makes a difference. I find logging the ... Mon, 20 Jul 2009 22:14:02 EST Do you bootcamp? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2240355 I had been working out for the last month doing the 30 day Shred video and the couch potato to 5K program. I was doing the exercise part but not being great about the food part. Anyone knows, food and exercise go hand in hand but I wasn't ready to go all in. I was invited by a friend to attend bring a friend night at her workout bootcamp. I am heavy but consider myself in pretty good shape for at fat chick <em>41</em> . I should add I put myself through college by being in the national... Sun, 19 Jul 2009 00:48:00 EST
