Oh, and I'm still taking yoga on Saturdays. I convinced Todd to go with me once, he loved it! He actually uses the breathing techniques when work gets stressful. He even went back with me a second time and insisted we find time in our day to make it to class. I love that he loves yoga! I love my yoga man!!

It’s a Hate-Hate Relationship
One of the things Dr. Bundren’s nurse said would help me with my Lupron side effects was working out every day. Man, am I trying! I have a friend, Elizabeth Taylor (no, not the famous one), that lost something like 30 pounds doing boot camp five days a week. So, I joined. They actually had a Groupon going, so I’m still under that window. However, I went ahead and signed up for my yearly membership with the gym because I enjoy it so much. I have been five days a week for the last 3 weeks and twice this week (it’s only Tuesday).
At the end of every week that you go for at least five days, you get to sign and date the wall. I love that part! (I have three dates next to my name.) AND, at the end of two consecutive weeks that you’ve gone five days each week, you get a coupon for a $25 hour-long massage. I love that part even more!! (I have earned one coupon. Yay!) If you check-in on Facebook 10 times in one month while at the gym, you get a prize at the end of the month. Last month, it was a water bottle. I know that in the past, it has been tshirts. (I have already done my 10 check-ins, so I’ll get my prize on Thursday, I hope.) I just love these little motivations.
I started out going at 5:35am (which means I’m getting up at 5am, and for those that know me well know that this is a huge deal for me to do this). However, I’ve had a few evenings free, so I have started rotating between going in the morning and after work. I actually feel like I get a better workout if I wait until after work, but I know you burn more calories in a morning workout. Plus, some nights, I just can’t go.
So it sounds like I really love it though, right? And I do. Well, most of it. Except the burpees. I hate burpees, and burpees hate me; no hurt feelings. If you don’t know what a burpee is, google it up. They are no fun whatsoever! However, if they will help me reach my goal weight, I’ll keep doing them.
I do love my bootcamp gym!!!
