Give me death.

Night one is complete. To say it was harder than I expected--a slight understatement. Is this a testimony to the difficulty of the program or my extreme lack of fitness...who can say. What I can say is that it kicked me to the CURB. I returned to my car after an hour and cried a little. Just a little. And just for a minute. I think I didn't realize just how out-of-shape I really am!

We did our fitness test --a mile run, sit-ups, push-ups, tricep presses--and then some other calisthenics and stretching with running in between. (add in my sprint to find a bathroom when we started doing jumping jacks. baby=weak bladder.)

All I can say is, it can only get better from here!

My favorite part of the night was getting our log book that we have to write down our food in every meal and our goals, workouts, etc. It has lots of instructions and tips. For instance, no sweets, fried foods, or alcohol---period. Gulp. I was good until the last one. We eat six small meals a day which is actually fun. I feel like I'm constantly eating and the food is what I like to eat anyway. Restaurants are supposed to be avoided...

The best part of the guidebook are the statements we are supposed to use with family/friends to keep us on track. Although true, they are LAUGHABLE. Don't make me use them on you!

If someone does not honor your wishes, avoid them. Here are some talking points.

'Please don't ask me to blow off my workout to do something with you.'

'Please don't offer me anything to eat that I'm not supposed to have.'

'Please don't ask me to go somewhere where I'll be tempted to eat or drink the wrong things.'

'Please don't keep me out too late if I need the rest.'

'Please don't question the validity of what I'm doing or give me unsolicited advice.'

Consider yourself warned!!! (that part is mine...ha ha.)

you have inspired me to eat better - check out vegan again on my blog. I am not sure I am up for exercise extreme - but you will look even more AWESOME when you are done. You already look like an "after" picture - so I can't wait to see the results.

Wow...I really like those statements and I'll stop talking about cake around you.

In case you hadn't gathered by my millions of comments and statemens, you have me SCARED TO DEATH, but at the same time, I am so excited to start. I ran for 20 minutes yesterday...the whole time thinking 'i am going to have to do so much worse at boot camp!'

The food thing may be my biggest challenge...especially with a Father's Day and an Anniversary stuck in there right after I start (egads!)...just glad we celebrated my birthday BEFORE you started!!!

Andrea, best of luck during boot camp. I did one here in Wichita last summer. After the first night, I crawled up our apartment stairs (really I did!) collapsed on our floor and cried for a good 30 minutes. The next day I could barely lift my arms. So I totally understand the crying in your car!
