I'm super sore today from yesterday's bootcamp. Shoulders thru my mid back, and then definitely my thighs from all the squats. But it's good stuff :)

Not much activity today, just SlimFast for breakfast, work, then off at noon. Picked up some LeanCuisines at Safeway, then headed home. A TON of rain today. It looks like a tropical storm over California right now. Pretty insane.

boot camp

Today was one of my "late" days to work; Tuesdays and Thursdays I don't have to be there until 10am. So I woke up an hour later than normal, and went to the boot camp class at UltimateFitness.

I got in a couple minute late, and they were in the middle of getting the heartrate up with jumping jacks and jump rope exercises. When I got all my stuff together, we went started quick many as we could do in 20sec intervals. 8 of them. and we had to hold the squat in the 10sec rest.

Then more squats and triceps work with the weights, 3 reps of different arm/squat exercises with sprints in between. Interchanging reps of mountain climbers and tri-dips, ab work with the medicine ball (which was REALLY fun!) and finished everything off with crunches and pushups across the room from one another, with crab running between each station.

It was a TON of fun. I mean, drum corps PT is pretty much boot-camp based, with some balance and Pilates thrown in.

The best part of the workout?

When I was sprinting, the trainer was right next to me, and said I looked like an athlete. :D She wasn't a itty-bitty skinny-mini, she was a buff woman, so her telling me I looked, and worked out, like an athlete, meant a whole lot to me.

Still fat, but on my way there!

Okay, better.

I ate well yesterday, until dinner at Chevy's, dessert at ColdStone, and two glasses of champagne at home. Although, dinner at Chevy's wasn't too bad, the fajitas are pretty decent, calorie wise, if I stay away from the beans and rice.

Once work starts this week, it'll be easier to get in gym and trumpet time. Camp is in TWO weekends, and I still need to get a recording somehow. I really want to do this, and I know if I don't give it my all, I'll regret it for life.

I'm using The Daily Plate to track my exercise, calories, and weight. It's like all those websites I used to use, into one. They have a blog feature, but I'll still write here, I think.

I had a really bad night last night. I got on the scale after dinner, clothes and all, and the scale read "181.6". I just flipped out. I worked WAY too hard and sacrificed way too much this year to gain almost 10lbs in a WEEK.

I'm really disgusted with myself. I started purging the house of bad stuff by giving my sister two sleeves of un-diet soda that Boyfriend's mom brought over. Unfortunately, the families gave a us a ton of good stuff that they know we love to eat, and it's filling up my pantry. I don't want to get rid of absolutely everything, because Boyfriend likes that stuff too.

He's another thing. He says he hates how he looks right now, but won't do anything about it. Time for me to start making dinner again, I think.
