Saturday, May 16, 2009      6 comments

So today I woke up again not feeling good. That has been going on all week. I really think it is allergies since it happens only in the morning. I had a class at the gym and really did not feel like going. But I went. After my 15 min warmup... Read more

Friday, May 15, 2009      0 comments

Boot camp at the gym last night did not seem too bad. Was it actually easier??? I did not jog for my warm up instead I walked. My legs were a little sore from the 6 mile jog yesterday so I thought I would give them a little rest and walk. Th... Read more

Last night I felt like my cold had gone away. It never hit hard to begin with. So I decided to go to the gym and get some running in. I started out strong and wish I would have timed my 1st mile because I think it was my quickest ever. I... Read more

Sore today - again
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      1 comments

I did some pretty heavy lower body and back strength exercises. I think I did too much weight on the deadlift or was not paying too much attention to my form. Either way my back is pretty sore today. I really want to jog tonight but I'm not s... Read more
swimsuit challenge and becoming a SP motivator :)
Monday, May 04, 2009      3 comments

1st 2 days of boot camp exercises are done. I wonder if they will all be like this. I never did a SP boot camp before. I already do a ton of exercise so this seemed pretty easy so far. I am adding this in addition to what I already do instea... Read more

Sore today but well worth it and a good stretch is great
Saturday, April 25, 2009      2 comments

Not sure why my legs were sore today. Could it be that I have worked out every day this week. Could it be all of the jogging and incline walking? Could it be doing the 30 day shred video every day this week? Could it be from the boot camp cl... Read more
