Sorry I have not updated you all with the bikini bootcamp thing. I can tell you that it ended very well and all of my numbers for sit ups, push ups, squats, lunges, etc all increased and I got a lot stronger. As for weight, I actually gained which really was discouraging but I figured I had probably gained muscle. I felt really good about it and I am going to do the next four week session which starts soon.
As for keeping it up my workout routine and eating right I feel like I have majorly failed. I really have to get myself back on track so I can get healthy. It just seems like when school gets stressful I start eating very unhealthily and I stop working out. Do you have any tips for me?
Also, I think I am going to start the 365 picture thing. Some other beauty gurus are doing it and I thought it would be fun. Anyways, it's basically like you take a picture everyday for one year and upload it to your blog. The picture just has to represent you or your life so it allows you to get creative.
Love you all,
P.S. Please share any weight-loss tips for me in the comment section :) Thank you

Day 4 (04/01/10): Alright so I quit, no more working out for me!
Hahaha April Fools!
Anyway, today felt really good. We did a little bit of cardio to get our hearts pumping, did some squats, some chest and arm exercises with weights and some ab and leg stuff laying down. It seemed so short.
I didn't feel like I was going to die today though.... I told my instructor after that I just didn't feel like I was going to die. I asked if I just was not working hard enough. She said that I was slacking a little bit and it is because I am doing the same amount of work that I am used to doing but my body is getting used to it. Since my body is getting used to it, I really need to pick it up and really push my self more and more each time. I asked the instructor to call me out if she really sees that I am slacking because I guess at the time I am doing it I really don't notice.
I honestly do feel like my endurance is really getting better! I'm not dead after a little bit of running! I really, really want to keep up with this working out think after my bootcamp is done. I am really looooooooving this healthy lifestyle :) It feels sooo good! I really hope by this time next year I am at least 9 sizes smaller! If I calculate that right... Alright, I'm gonna put myself out there. Currently I am a size 18 in American Eagle brand jeans. I hope to be a size 9 by this time next year! I really hope I can do this! I'm also gonna put myself out there and tell you my weight! The last time I weighed myself (about a week or two ago) I weighed between 217 and 215, the scale kept changing. My goal weight is 150! As of right now I don't really care about losing pounds, right now I am just concerned with shedding the fat (GROSS)! I am hoping to gain sexy muscle and not man muscle. I hope look good in a swimsuit (it doesn't have to be a bikini) around next summer because I think I am going to start saving up with the FH to go on a CRUISE! It is something I have always wanted to do and I think that will be my big reward for getting healthy and looking good! I really feel like I am on a great track to the rest of my life!
I can't wait for the day that I can wear shorts and a tank top and not feel like a flubber whale! I know that one day I will be the person I want to be and I will be healthy for my children (when I decide if I will even have any or not) and I will live my exquisite life to the fullest!
By the way, this is my post workout snack:
These are soooo delicious! They are an enhanced protein shake and they come in all different flavors. They have 15g of whey protein isolate, 23 vitamins and minerals, 3 servings of fruits and veggies from antioxidants, antioxidant = to 4 cups of green tea and they are free of lactose, gluten, soy and caffeine! They are 200 calories a bottle and they are all naturally. You can find more info at www.mix1life.com. Also they are made here in Colorado, in Boulder actually :)
I started drinking these because my instructor said for us to drink something with carbs or protein to replenish our muscles :) They are so yummy and not even chalky!
Love you all!
