28 Day Bootcamp Week Four- DONE!!!
Monday, May 16, 2011
I finished!!! Hooray for me!!! I'm so glad to have gotten through the 28 days of bootcamp! Here's my recap:
Day 22, Monday- I caught up on the exercises I needed to catch up on in order to still be doing well in the bootcamp. I did my day 6 & 7 workouts (upper body and core), plus the day 1 video, which is the 10 minute cardio, and then 30 minutes on the treadmill. That got me completely caught up. It also helped out with the stress of my granny being in the hospital, my uncle being a mega jerkface (that's the nicest thing I can call him), and impending tests I had for the week. I tracked 5 veggie/fruit servings!
Day 23, Tuesday- I did 40 minutes of cardio- 30 on the treadmill and 10 on the elliptical. Woo! I also doubled up my toning videos for the day. And I didn't track my meals that day, although I don't think I scheduled myself to. I only got in 4 servings of fruit/veg, but I probably ate more than that in actuality.
Day 24, Wednesday- My short workout day thanks to work. It was quite a challenge this day, too. My schedule was switched, so I worked in the morning instead of the afternoon. And then I had a national exam for ServSafe certification in the afternoon, so I didn't get to work out until much, much later in the day. But, I did my 10 minute cardio kickboxing and my doubled up toning videos. It helped relieve the stress of the test because I left it feeling less-than-confident. I also didn't eat terrifically healthy. Thanks to lunch, that my boss bought me, I went over my calories and whatnot. But, I did track all day! I only got 4 servings of fruit/veg in, though. Bummer.
Day 25, Thursday- Doubled up my toning videos, 10 minute elliptical and 30 minute treadmill workout. All week I was switching up what I did first- toning or cardio. Just to keep my body guessing. I had lunch leftovers for a meal this day, but modified it so it was less awful nutrient-wise. I didn't track every meal, but had a decent idea what I ate anyway. I went to dinner with a long-lost friend of mine from back in the day that I randomly ran into at Mission Bay. I had a great time and a super great burger- no mayo- and a Julian's Hard Cider to wash it down. It was a fun time catching up and enjoying a really amazing burger. Perfect day!
Day 26, Friday- I got screwed by that burger. It was delicious and I didn't get food poisoning or anything like that. But, thanks to medical issues, the beef hit my system pretty hard and all the next day I was in physical pain. I had a feeling I would be, but I was unable to do much of anything, so I didn't get to work out. I vowed to make it up to myself. And I only tracked 1 veg/fruit serving and no food. The food issue was no surprise, I was in too much pain to eat a whole lot.
Day 27, Saturday- I fulfilled most of my vow. I didn't get to my cardio, but I did both days of my doubled-up toning videos. I tried to track my food, but I couldn't locate nutrition info for what I ate, so I didn't get to track. And lunch was so filling, it was basically all I ate. I had a few marshmallows, 1 smore... and I think some fruit and toast, aside from lunch. Yup.
Day 28, Sunday- I was so excited today was the last day! I did my toning doubled up after my cardio workout, which was, of course, 10 minutes of elliptical and 30 minutes of treadmill. I had 3 fruit/veg servings today. And boy, oh boy, am I super full! I didn't even snack much between meals. Geez! Like I said, I need a juicer! I wish I had money so I could have rewarded myself with one at the end of this challenge. :-(
I'm ready for the next phase of fitness and health.
