Day 26 of Bootcamp

Friday, May 13, 2011

Two more days after today and I'm down to just one bootcamp and a Biggest Loser Challenge. No pressure or anything, right? lol

I skipped cardio today. I still did the videos, but I'm a little sore still from yesterday so I'm giving it another day before I try to do cardio. Walking and light jogging are okay, but that jump rope one yesterday, wow! Even without a jump rope, its hard. Not so much because of the exercises, but because its me doing them. This is a whole lot of person bouncing up and down. lol I swear I need to get full body Spanx in order to do it. I start jumping, and fat starts bouncing up and down! You know, you expect it with the boobs, all women learn to just live with that. But the stomach and butt! I'm surprised I'm not one big ring of black and blue around my body. lol Here I thought I didn't have much butt (its flat as a board lol), but there's something there because it felt like it was slamming into my shoulder blades. lol

Okay, getting away from jiggly body parts. Tomorrow's an 11 1/2 hour day, so I'm going to have a hard time getting all my workout in. Fridays drive me nuts sometimes. I'm taking a resistance band to work with me so I can do strength training there. I'll do the videos and cardio when I get home tomorrow night. I'll probably have to blog before my workout, because it may run into Saturday morning before I finish everything I want to get done.

Oh, then I have to get a cake for Austin's birthday Saturday. I think I'll check out SparkRecipes and see if I can find a healthier version. I'd rather have a cake made with egg whites and applesauce anyway, because its so much more moist. If I find a good recipe, I'll be sure and post it so everyone else can try it.

I'm working on my vision collage. I've been putting it off, not sure where to begin. I think I know what direction I want to go in now. Terri posted a blog about choices. It stuck in my head, so I think that's the theme I'm going with. Right now I'm just going through old magazines, clipping out words and letters, whatever screams out at me. We'll see how it goes.

I'm off to bed now. But I want to send a little love first.

Bridget. I can't believe I was crying at the front counter at work! lol Your support means the world to me. I know it sounds cheesy, but it feels like we've been friends forever, not just a little over a month. I cherish you, and I BELIEVE IN YOU, even when you don't believe in yourself.

Tisha, you are so sweet and so supportive. I can always count on you to make me feel good and put a smile on my face. I'm glad you're here, and I'm glad we found each other.

I just wanted you to know that both of you hold a special place in my heart.

Now go burn some calories and make yourselves proud! :D

Night everyone!

    LOL You make me smile, too, especially this blog. Your talk about body parts bouncing made me laugh, because I know exactly what you mean! It makes it very challenging to do some of those videos. I still like to do the jump start one, though. I haven't ever tried the jump rope video, but I have a workout dvd that has some jumping rope in it. I try to do those when no one is around to see me. LOL I would hate to see what I look like. It seems that since I've lost some weight, things bounce more than before. I guess it's because of extra skin. :( I don't like it, but it's better than being unhealthy.

    You make me tired just thinking about all the working out that you do. LOL I have to get my butt in gear. I've really been slacking for weeks, now. You are a huge motivator, but I'm not online enough, anymore. I need to make little signs and put them around my house that say, "Amy works out every day.", "Amy does two boot camps at once.", and "Amy works out even when she's tired and sick!" :) LOL I know I can do it. Things have just been crazy, and I haven't put forth the effort. I never work 11.5 hrs and I don't have a husband or kids. I don't have a good excuse, and I'm trying not to use excuses. I just haven't done it. I'm still doing okay. I've still lost weight. I just need to step things up again, and I REALLY need to quit saying that and just do it! :)

    I hope you have a great weekend celebrating your son's birthday! Please do share the cake recipe if you find a good one. :)

    I'd love to see your vision collage when you are done. I did one awhile ago, but I think I should make a new one. I'm so used to seeing the one I have, that I don't pay attention to it anymore.

    I'm so glad we found each other, too! You are one of my best SparkFriends. I can always count on you to be supportive and motivational. You are absolutely awesome, and I hope you know it! :) I'm sorry I haven't been around as much lately, but I hope I've still given you all the support you need.

    Have an amazing weekend!
