Bootie Update

I've actually been sick with a bad chest cold the last 1 1/2 weeks or so, sick enough that I haven't been able to really do any exercise cuz my lungs are full of other stuff besides air...

...but I wanted to share my successes in my bootcamp so far...I am down 14 pounds! Half way to my goal! I am so excited! I really think the water and weights have made the biggest difference for me. In my opinion, I think I look like I've lost more than 14 pounds when I look at myself, and I think this is because I have definitely gained muscle tone. I'm am supposed to get measured and analyzed next week, so I will know exactly how much my body composition has changed.

I'm a little bummed I have been off track for the past week with exercise due to illness, and I haven't been diligent with my food and water...but I know I haven't been horrible either. The whole time I was sick I kept thinking I would wake up the next day with all 14 pounds plus back on my body, just cuz I hadn't worked out that day...irrational I know. But it is frustrating to think I could be even closer to my goal if I hadn't gotten sick. I've been having a hard time gettin back on the motivated track...until...

Yesterday I started looking at swimsuits and decided this is the year I WILL wear a bikini again. Haven't done that in over 5 years...I won't be going Brazilian or anything, but something cute for sure. Not skankalishious, but definitely not a full body suit that has to suck in and cover all my bodyparts and screams "I'm a Mom, and I never want to have sex again!"

I'm sure you'll be back at it sooner than you think. I've felt the same way (about weight suddenly springing back on) since I was banned from running.

You are doing soo good girl. I'm so nervous about running tomorrow. Silly i know. I know what you mean about feeling like the weight will just pile back on because you've had to take a break from exercise. And no matter how irrational we know it is. It is a REAL fear. But you know it takes 3500 cal to make us go up or down on the scale so we should just chill , work on feeling better then hit it like the bad ass runners we know we are! Jinx! LOL!

woo hoo. You're too skinny already. And yes, you can wear hair extentensions. They have changed my life.

I have the removable variety. They clip on. I bought one (1) once of hair.

They made them for me on the spot and then cut them into my hair. The cost was around 150 bucks.

REAL extensions are permanent and can cost 700.00 big ones.

You'll have to come out here and visit me. They pick the hair that matches yours. It's takes five minutes. This is one of the benefits to living in Southern California. People are really THAT vain.
