Holy sheet.

The weigh-in for boot camp was yesterday morning. They take your measurements and all that, so you can see how much progress you've made at the end of the month.

Total weight lost on the juice cleanse?

11.5 lbs.

Wow. Bring on another one!

I can definitely tell already that this early-morning bootcamp thing is going to be brutal. Aside from the obvious 5:30, she makes us do push-ups with your weight rocked forward onto your toes, and your butt up in the air. Your shoulders take your full body weight instead of your lower back. Yikes. And she ends every session with burpees. I apparently slept on my wrist wrong, so those were incredibly unenjoyable for me.

In other news, my sister and I went out to lunch today, and she asked me to be her maid of honor! I am simultaneously thrilled, shocked, and nervous. We don't really talk that often. I feel like I don't really know her that well anymore, and yet now I'm the one whose shoulders it falls on to plan her bridal shower and bachelorette party. I am hoping this will strengthen our not-super-close relationship.

I'm going to attempt to get five hours of sleep before boot camp again in the morning. Ciao!!


  1. Bootcamps are awesome. I attended one two years ago and after visiting it like eight times I was super boosted. Do you have it outside or inside? Mine was in a park outside so everybody was staring at as while walking to work. I loved it but what I couldn't stand was the waking up at 5:20 :-/

  2. Veru - Mine is mostly inside. We have to run around the building a few times in the beginning, but the rest of the hour is spent inside. I definitely prefer it that way. I'm too self-conscious to have everyone else watching!

    Definitely feel you on the early morning thing, too. I woke up 15 minutes before it started this morning (much later than I'd planned) and was still super tired.
