I'm in Boot Camp Hell 

Okay, so I'm not in the Army's boot camp, but the NH Adventure Boot Camp for Women is already kicking my (fat) ass in gear. Did I mention, it just started this morning!

Amanda and I are attending boot camp at 7:30AM, 5 days a week, for an hour of hell. I really didn't know that I had muscles in some places. I know it will show by the end of it all.

All fun aside, I'm very excited. I tried losing weight back in January (our month long stint at the gym), but it really wasn't convenient - 30 minute drive each way. So then, my bad eating habits and lack of exercise took hold and I gained another 10lbs.

I am not quite at the heaviest I have been in my life, but I don't want to get any heavier, that's for damn sure.

As I've been trying to figure out what I want to do for fun this summer (yes, I realize it's half gone), I knew that I wouldn't be able to handle anything that involved exercise. Especially Scuba Diving. In general, you don't have to be in great shape for diving, but you do need to be able to breath well. Huffing and puffing, up the stairs just wasn't gonna cut it.

Anyhow, Amanda's co-worker came to me about a month ago and asked, "Can you build me a website in 4 days?" Of course I can, and I did. And then Amanda called me up and said, "We're doing boot camp, baby"! So here we are at day one and I'm already complaining (I mean raving about it).
Lose weight with The Daily Plate
And, to help me eat better (or rather be accountable), I'm using TheDailyPlate to track all of my calories, etc. If you haven't checked out the site, it's pretty cool. It's free for all the basic, calorie counting, fitness tracking, basic body measurements, calorie goals, etc. It also does a calculation on how many calories you can eat in a given day based on your weight loss (or gain) goals and your fitness routine. It's a no-brainer.

So, please, keep your fingers crossed for me. I need all the motivation I can get!
