Week 1 Day 2: Lower Body Day

“Let’s get started today is Tabata Tuesday.”

Our trainer yelled out as was trying to pump us up.

I never heard of this word and I was intrigued. He went to explain that we will be doing each station for 20 seconds as hard as you can and then rest for 10.  We would be doing 6 set.

That didn’t sound so bad.  How bad could 20 seconds be?

OMG, did I found out.  Those were the longest 20 seconds of my life!!!!

I never knew how hard 20 seconds could be.

I am going to be one sore girl tomorrow.

Week 1 Day 1: Upper Body Day

Yesterday was my first day.  I recently moved and decided to check out this new place.   I was so nervous but determined.
This Camp is smaller than the one I previously attended and when I walked in there I was greeted so warmly.   They all knew it was my first time there and I felt so bashful.

That quickly went out the door as soon as he started our “warm-up” – I put warm-up in quotations marks because I was huffing and puffing by the end of it. It was a work-out.

As the title said today was upper body day and by the end of the workout I had noodle arms.

 

I was tired and sore but still I left smiling — I had forgotten how good it felt to workout.

 


Total Calories: 1200/1400

Total Steps: 8,098 (my Fitbit died during my workout 😭)

The Camp’s 21-Day Detox

Feel 100% in body, mind & spirit as you get toned, lose weight, and gain energy back
From our experience it takes an understanding of the emotional ups and downs and the mindset behind the strategies to lose weight and keep it off. Mindset is everything.

Each of us went through part of our lives being toxic, and almost losing it all. But all of us had a rebirth by getting healthy. Now, we want to help you achieve your own miraculous rebirth and turnaround – with a body, mind and spirit transformation which can and will produce real results, and help you feel like “you” again.

You’ll look and feel at your best, and enjoy more self-confidence and energy. You’ll be healthy, and you’ll learn how to maintain your new lifestyle over the long haul.

FORGET ABOUT INFORMATION – TAKE ACTION & CREATE RESULTS!

Information can be found anywhere. So can misinformation, for that matter. That’s why we’re not just about information. We’re about taking action and creating results!

You’re not getting a “diet plan” – you’re being led through a transformation process and a live 21-day event which will change your life!

It starts May 8th. I am so happy I came across this.

Eat Run Drink

eatrundrink

That’s me in a nutshell and what this blog will be about — eating, drinking (two of my favorite activities) and exercising (not one of my favorite activities) –striving for harmony.

Women and wine, in my opinion, it’s probably the closest and most fun relationship out there.
My affinity with wine is stable, strong and reliable.
Wine is always here to comfort me in the toughest of times and the most exciting of celebrations.
Whether you are drowning your sorrows from yet another miserable day at the office or celebrating your most recent promotion, you know exactly what you are doing at the end of the day — that’s right, cracking open (or twisting off the cap of) a fresh bottle of vino.

The same goes for my love affair for food. Good food is healthy food. Food is supposed to sustain you so you can live better, not so you can eat more but while in theory that makes sense to me I am not the type to want to eat to live.  You could say that I live to eat but not for the reason you might think.  I rather skip a meal or even starve for many hours than having to succumb myself to eating horrible tasting food.

Overindulging or not eating aren’t good things and I am going to try my hardest to overcome these shortcomings and strive to have a better relationship with food.
