    emoticonI'm so glad u got out of a bad marriage. U deserve to be happy & staying in a bad marriage isn't any good. It makes people sick from the STRESS.

Stay away from SCORPIO men, as you certainly will be lied to.

You can do fine being SINGLE until you find the RIGHT person, so give yourself time. TWO children take up a lot of time so you have yourself "booked" already.

    then hunnybun the song for your 2011 should be Letting Go by Janelle Monae. For me this song helps me realize my reality of not working so hard, trying to make every dime in Johnny's, working 17 hour days! in 2011 i'm taking a day off! the song is about a girl quitting her job(ME! ME! MEEE!) but actually it can be about quitting anything that holding you down or back from realizing freedom! so go check it out , turn it up and play it one time for me too virginia!! - emoticonbran

Day 5 of the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Had another sleepless day. Went with my dad to the cardiologist as follow to his recent hospitalization and then teaching my sisters and my mom his treatment plan. Then setting up the ton of meds he is on for the week. Very emotionally draining day.

I only got 10 minutes of cardio in and the day 5 video. Will do better tomorrow.

Day 4 of the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge (On a day that I was very tired!)

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

I was so super tired today, which made the work outs difficult to fit in today. It is freezing and extremely icy here in Michigan, so going to the gym was not an option for me today, so I choose to do videos.

How did I fit it in today?
I got off work at 8:30 am and went straight to the optometrist. I was back home by 10:30 a.m. and in bed by 11:00. No school today for the kids, so I was back up by 1:30pm to make lunch for them. Ran some errands, then back home by 4pm. Prepared dinner but while dinner was cooking I sneaked in a 10 minute cardio video. Fed the kids and then went into my room to do the Day 4 bootcamp video.
Got my daughter to bed by 8pm. Then I laid down for a couple hours, back up at 10pm. Did a 20 minute cardio video before getting ready for work. I was out the house by 11:15pm to be at work by midnight. Kinda chaotic, not well-planned out but I did it! emoticon

Day 3 of the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge/Dr's Visit

Monday, December 13, 2010

Success! I went to the doctor and she was very pleased with my weight loss over the past 3 weeks (8 lbs). On the previous visit, she was concerned both about my blood pressure and the fact that the labs showed that I was insulin-resistant (on the road to type 2 diabetes). I had to lose weight and I did!! She was impressed with how I was losing it: THE OLD FASHION WAY! Which includes WW, SP and working out. So my treatment plan is to CONTINUE TO HOLD OFF ON THE MEDICATIONS!! No pills for now because I've adjusted my lifestyle. Wonderful news.

So after the visit, I was super motivated to do my tasks for Day 3 of the challenge. My arms are sore, ouch! Coach Nicole is no joke, her workouts are really a workout! I also took before pictures of myself because I know those days will be long gone soon.

Still motivated, I ventured out to my Weight Watchers Meeting to find out that I lost 1.6 lbs!

A good day for me. I am very satisfied because it seems to all be coming together!

    Way to go! If getting in shape means saving money from medications you don't need to buy and a longer life down the road, you're on the right path!

Congrats on your lost! Keep up the fantastic work!

Day 2 of the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge

Sunday, December 12, 2010

I've completed my activities for day two of the bootcamp challenge. And I must admit that it was very hard getting started today. I had a boatload of excuses for the 3-4 inches of snow outside to "I'm trying to watch Sherlock Holmes". But my inner healthy girl forced me to haul my butt into gear.

So I did the Day 2 strength video focusing on the lower body. It was good but I am sore. I also did a high impact, intense kickboxing video. Took a nap and then shoveled snow at my home and then my parent's house. I AM POOPED!

I weigh in at Weight Watchers tomorrow, I hope that there continues to be lower numbers on the scale for me. I don't care if it is only 1/2 a lbs, I will take it.

Now I am going to go get in bed and watch Sherlock Holmes, I think I earned it!
