The final Stretch of Fitcamp or Should I Say Last Chance Workouts Anyone?

Hey Everyone....

Is there anyone still out there in blog land checking in on me?  If your watching the videos, what do you think? I have heard everything from we need psychiatric help to we are working out too hard.   Give me a holla if you can as I have two more days to go and I fly back Sunday.  I have one more day of actual "camp" meaning lots of exercise tomorrow morning and then we go to the "Grand Old Opery" in our new outfits! We weigh in on Sunday.   I have been kinda homesick the last couple of days. I miss my cat and creature comforts. Don't get me wrong, this is one of the best decisions I have made for myself, aside from quitting cigarettes and have learned a ton about fitness, weight loss and accepting who you are wherever you are in your fitness journey  (or whatever place your in.)   I guess I am ready to go back to life and take what I have learned with me.  I have met some amazing people and it is the jump start I needed for the "Diva Reinvention."  

Anyway, I gotta run and eat.... Its funny, since starting this food plan I get to eat so much lean protein, fruits and veggies with some pure grain that sometimes its hard getting to the caloric amount I am assigned. When we are working out a lot, skipping meals is a HUGE no, no!  I feel way better when I eat six small meals as opposed to two HUGE meals. I am glad I am making the commitment to change my lifestyle; particularly this bad habit.  I am sure I will write a ton about this experience when I get home but for now, I am just checking in.


PS:  I am still off cigarettes and its amazing to be able to do things I NEVER would have though of doing. I mean spin class with a lit cigarettte? I think not! Its funny, you don't see too many people running with a lit cigarette either....unless they are being chased by the police. Just something to think about....or at least its something for me to think about!

i'm so proud of you!! man, you're working hard, it's amazing! you're so right about not skipping meals, that's a big one i forget a lot lately and i'm sure that's part of why i'm not seeing any change on the scale. anyway, keep up the good work! trust me i know how hard doing the work is, but it's soooo worth it. just turn on the music in your head and sweat real good! high five!
