It's the second week of the Burst into Summer Challenge hosted by The Sisterhood. I've been very determined about this challenge since hearing about it a couple of weeks ago.
I have three other awesome team mates...supposed to be four, but haven't heard from one of them. They have been giving me encouragement and support...and I really like the "team spirit" that's building from this challenge.
Yesterday, I did my confession post and let out some of the confessions about my past week...and my slight lack of "team dedication". I hadn't worked out as much as I'd like, I hadn't participated in the first boot camp, I had even seen a gain on the scale....all true, and all had to be gotten off my chest.
There's something about doing those confession posts that always make me feel better. They give me a swift kick in the rear to fix them..so I'm not confessing the same thing week after week.
After writing my post yesterday, I did a 30 minute work-out with my Supreme 90 Day...it was Ultimate Ball. The whole work-out was on my stability ball. I made the mistake of not inflating it all the way (cause blowing the dang thing up with a hand pump is a work-out in it's self!!). I paid for that mistake....I was in pain by the time it was all over.
Then, I decided to do the parts of the boot camp that I knew how to do. I still can't get the videos to load... I found out my modem is on it's way out, a new one should be here today, so hopefully by tonight - I'll be back on track. Holy Cheese Balls!! This morning, I'm feeling it. My hips are sore, my arms are sore...and I feel FANTASTIC!!
I'm also happy with what I saw on the scale this morning. Yesterday morning, I stood on the scale and saw 215.6 - a 1.8lbs gain since my last weigh-in. I was so scared I was going to have to report a gain this morning. Well, the weight loss gods were apparently happy with my confessions...cause they rewarded me with a second chance this morning....here are the results...
Challenge Start Weight: 214.8lbs
Today's Weight: 214lbs
Loss of 0.8lbs
OK, so it's not huge loss... but by golly, it's a loss - and I'll take it!!
This week's mini-challenge was to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water...and that I did for the most part. There were a couple of days - mostly this weekend - where I could have drunk more... but the rest of the days I was chugging between 60-80ozs of water.
Today is my "rest day" for Supreme 90 Day - but it's the 2nd session of boot camp. I had originally intended to do the boot camp Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday this week... but if my modem is here today, and I can watch the videos, I will be out doing the second session tonight. Even if it's not here - I will be out tonight doing what I can.
Today, I'm going to be pretty laid back (until tonight). I'm going to be reading about everyone elses experience with the first week, catching up on responding to my commenters, and later I have to take Jelly to Wal-Mart to buy her a "work-out ball".
Jelly has been my work-out partner every day...and for a 3 year old, she's a dang good motivator. She wasn't happy yesterday when Momma got to work-out on a cool ball, and she didn't have one. I swear, I have a personal trainer in the making with her. She has already informed me this morning that she wants to do Yoga...and who am I to deprive her of something like that??
Alright - time to get busy....what are your plans for today?
Till next time. ;)
