How Did I Ever Get Through the Week?! Plus Weigh-In!

Hello lovely people!

While I'm sitting here downing my ice cold chocolate (sugar free!) skim milk, I figured I should also check in with you all. =)

Well it is the start of Week 9 of Boot camp! Hooray!

However, I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning. I mean, literally I couldn't move. It has been 2 weeks since I last worked out with W and the girls of Boot Camp! (Last week was the off week and the week prior I was sick all but one day).

As you can tell by now, I decided to join for another cycle, the price was right AND I could always just go 3 days a week if it was raining or too cold downtown. As suggested by one of the lovely ladies of BC!

Today was hard. There were a ton of new girls (like 5 I think) and that is always a really great push! For our morning run/jog I actually came in 5th! It was amazing. I didn't smoke before I went, that always helps, and although I came in last in our regular group of girls, the new girls were behind me. It felt good. Let's hope I can keep that alive. I was SO out of breath by the end of it though.

We then moved on to doing core workouts, leg workouts and butt workouts (which I LIVE FOR because I sadly am a no-booty girl). I rated myself a 4 out of a 5 today for effort and I'm cool with that.

I forgot what I was missing. I love boot camp. I love being pushed, I love feeling energized afterward, hell...I even love the way my stomach muscles are hurting like hell right now. Because I KNOW that I DID something. It feels amazing. I wish I had an alarm clock shouting this at me when I don't feel like waking up!

Now time for the Weigh-In. I was NOT looking forward to this. I knew that the two weeks off of boot camp weren't really helping AND when I go to boot camp, I pay extra attention to what I am putting in my body because I don't want to have negative effects on the hard ass work out I just did. Needless to say it wasn't a great lost.

I lost another 0.4 this week. Which brings my total weight loss to 25.4 in ten weeks. It's really kind of a bummer. I was hoping to be down 27lbs total this week and now I know that I CAN do this. I have to. So, with the girls and trainer of boot camp behind me, and D at my side and all of you reading and supporting me, I KNOW I can get down two pounds this week! And I WILL. In fact, I may try for 3 =) Why not?

Tomorrow I will be posting before and after pictures so be on the look out for them!
