Progress (my journal for 28 day boot camp)

Saturday, August 22, 2015

Aug. 22 2015 - back from vacation of 10 days in the islands. Emotionally and physically exhausted.

Aug. 29, 2015 - started boot camp for 28 days. On day three but feeling good about it. Made my first recipe of my own yesterday and even tracked it. I will try to enter it, it's hard.

Doing aerobic and strength training. Will weigh in when it has been a week. Really overdid it yesterday. Rest day today!!!

Day 4 - Must say my rest day was a bit boring, but I made up for it today.
I went swimming for 40 minutes and now I feel wobbly! Can't believe it's day 4 already. I can see week one ending in sight and enjoying my new goals.

Maybe Kayaking tomorrow. Or gym...we'll see.

Day 5 - without energy at all. Made it a point to eat breakfast and feel better. I had a very bad dizzy problem yesterday. I'm still so glad for that refreshing morning swim. Plan another one today with my husband around six pm. Want to feel like a super-star again!

I'm sad that my eldest is leaving for London for his Master's. He leaves in 3 days. I hate these last days, I'm full of emotion (and ironing). :-) I wish the heat would break. It's unbearable and keeps me from enjoying life OUTSIDE the house. I couldn't even go swimming now (we swim in sea) as it's just too hot. Headache hot. Gotta go hang out the laundry. DAY FIVE - way to go me. Heading for Day 7 baby. That will be the same day Kyriakos leaves. He is leaving at night so will exercise during the day. Such fun!

Day 6 - tuesday. I weighed in a day early. Not to happy but I feel better for all the exercise I've done and the healthy eating. I'm also making sure I mix up my workouts for variety. So far I mix recumbent bike with treadmill and swimming and kayaking. I do feel like eating a lot today but will use my will power to stay within healthy food, and maybe a cookie for dessert.
I know I can do this and I was saying to myself today, "God made me like I am, so enjoy the journey." It was just a thought I was having.....

Wow, day 10. I'm doing it. My tracking is so hard. Just don't know what to put down for all our Greek foods. I feel I will have to "wing it." I have lost no weight. My clothes feel the same. I did treat myself to a mani/pedi yesterday as it was my relax day.

The heat is really hard to deal with. 100 today and 103 tomorrow. Then cooler into the high eighties. That should be easier on my body as I have a very hard time with the heat. Don't understand the weight loss issue, but will keep going. Feel better and if you can believe it, already stronger. My siblings are coming and we have all kinds of activities planned. Want to be in good shape for that. Tomorrow swimming - and 2 videos and a bonus video!!! YEAH.
