Day One in the Bag

Whew, It's 8pm and I made it through the first day of boot camp.

We didn't have a workout scheduled today, just homework. Oh, didn't I tell you about homework????? Every day we are to do 20 sit ups, 8 negative pushups, a one minute plank, 10 wheels and do a wall sit when we brush our teeth. I am very proud to say I was able to do the sit ups tonight. I tucked my toes under a chair and used my arms for momentum but damn it, I got 20 of them under my belt. Each night I will get better and my abs will get stronger until I don't have to tuck my toes or use my arms. The other stuff is totally doable, just grunt a bit while doing it.

Food wise I did great. Stuck to the plan like glue. Just for fun, I calculated both my calories and points used today. I ended up eating 1400 calories which worked out to be 22 points. I've already got everything portioned and in the fridge to take to work tomorrow.

I also took Leia for a short 2 mile walk. She doesn't make a good walking partner, she always like to walk about 6 steps behind and I end up dragging her most of the way.

So great day one for boot camp.

Good for you! I wish we had something like that here. I took a boot camp class but it really should have been renamed to "morning exercise". I can't say that I would be brave enough to take on such a rigorous class. I'm super impressed! You'll be happy with the end results!
