Bootcamp Addict

Hi Weight Loss Bloggers!

It's my third full week of boot camp and it was EXACTLY what I needed.
I feel refreshed and renewed.
My stress level is better than it has been in a long time.
I feel like I am getting physically and mentally healthier every day.

I really lack self-motivation to work out, so the trainer lead classes are perfect for me.

In addition to the gym, I'm tracking my nutrition every day.  I am actually doing really well.
The more I exercise, the more hungry I am.
As a weight loss surgery patient, that is SCARY.

But I recognize it is my metabolism speeding up.
I also know the importance of eating enough to produce milk for my baby, so I am letting my body lead me.  
Last week I was SO hungry.  I couldn't stop myself from eating.  So I ate a pack of TUNA.

But I figured if I was hungry enough to eat a 3rd lunch, it should be something I hate.
That proves it was body hunger and not head hunger.

Just wanted to stop in for a quick update.

If you've been thinking about getting back into working out but putting it off, STOP!

It isn't just good for your body, it's good for the mind.  <3

Until next time...

Back at it

The stress associated with breaking up, custody, and work is really starting to get to me. I got to a point that I wanted a drink every day after work, but I made the decision not to drink when alone in the company of my child, so that wasn't working out for me. So today I made the decision to go back to boot camp.

A new location of Burn Bootcamp opened closer to my house... About 15 minutes away. I used to go to a different location of this franchise prior to my revision surgery. If there's a Burn Bootcamp in your location, I recommend it highly. It's some of the most intense workout you can possibly fit into 45 minutes.

And I'm scared!

I'm terribly out of shape.

And let's be real, I'm lazy.

But I need to do something to help with my current stress level. Correction....i need to do something HEALTHY to deal with it. We all know there are plenty of unhealthy things I could do, so I'm proud of myself for choosing a healthy alternative to the daily glass of wine the minute my work day is done.

Tomorrow is day 1. Say a little prayer for me.
