I almost didn't try today.... And it ended up being one of my favorite days. The good thing about bootcamp is that its different every day. If you really hate something, maybe you don't see so much of it the next day. I'm happy to see the t... Read more

Okay, today I made the decision regarding bootcamp. I will complete my final week, but will not sign up for another month. I think the people are great, but my body is very weary. I feel that the intensity is something I can work up to, but I wa... Read more

I'm in the third week of bootcamp, and I don't feel like I've progressed as much as I did the first time around. It might be that the group I am with this time is much more fit (seems that way), and they are raising the bar higher to ensure that... Read more

I thought I gained some weight last week, which was really frustrating. This is just a blog to remind myself that going up and down is part of the game.. and that it goes as quickly as it comes sometimes. Today, I weighed in a solid 175. I even ... Read more

OK.. so this has been a thrilling month. All in all, I'm ending the month a pound lighter than I started. I was giving myself a hard time today because I actually gained two pounds since last week. But, when I look at the month, I still have a n... Read more

A few weeks ago, I wondered if I would ever start to lose weight.. and now, I'm only 20 pounds away from my goal!! OMG!! I'm sooooo very excited. I've lost 12 pound since re-starting my Spark People in April. Arguably, I hadn't learned the value... Read more

Tuesday, April 29, 2008      4 comments

News flash to me: if you eat a lot of food late at night, you won't care about breakfast. If you slow down your eating in the evening, you will be more than ready for breakfast! This morning, I woke up thirsty and ready to eat. Its amazing how q... Read more
