Boot Camp Buddy

On Saturday morning I brought my hubby to Boot Camp for bring a buddy day! I'm happy to report my hubby that works out all the time and is in decent shape got his butt kicked! I was so happy he came and took the class with me. Sometimes it's hard to explain to people what the class is about and how hard it is. Especially when I feel like they look at me and don't see results like on the Biggest Loser! I'm trying to keep in my mind that I didn't put this weight on over night so it's not coming off over night!

I think we are all motivated by quick success and when you don't have it, it's hard to stay motivated! I'm heading on vacation tomorrow to SLC, Utah the land of awesome Mexican Food and cupcake bakeries and basically all my favorite foods. But I'm also packing my workout clothes, my Dad has a treadmill and I plan on starting my days on that. My vacation goal is no weight gain!

When we get back I'm hitting the diet hard and stepping up the exercise....Spring Break is around the corner and I'd like to go somewhere warm and possibly put on a swim suit!

One of my Face book friends posted this yesterday. I'm not sure if they are her words or someone else's but they spoke to me.

"Each time you are honest and conduct yourself with honesty, a success force will drive you toward greater success. Each time you lie, even with a little white lie, there are strong forces pushing you toward failure".

In this journey of mine I'm trying to improve on my lifestyle making it a healthy one. It's a tough one....lots of steps forward and many steps backwards...some success and lots of failure. 

I'm finding for me after many years doing weight watchers, calorie counting and various other means of losing weight looking back to what worked. I think tracking is the only way to keep me in check and make sure I'm eating the right stuff, plus my Boot Camp trainer can look and pick apart my journal. With this said, the FB quote spoke to me. On Monday I thought okay back to My Fitness and track, track,track! So I input my exercise and my water intake and tracked my meals! Woo Hoo by the looks of it I was having a successful day! Or was I? I totally had 4 cookies and only tracked 2 I know...big fat liar! But I didn't need to hear my trainer tell me cookies are a no no! Hello I freaking know my mind I knew I had banked to calories and was still in check....but seriously who am I fooling! 

Being honest with yourself and others plus being real is what this journey is all about....! 

So yea Monday I thought I did good but in the back of my mind I knew 4 cookies....were in my belly! Yesterday I tracked an honest cookies! All good choices and it felt good to be honest and truthful to myself.
