Week Two Complete! 

Well, week two of fitness boot camp is complete and I'm ready for a nice relaxing weekend!

At the end of week one, I ran my first mile (I think ever), last Friday. My official time: 12minutes and 22seconds. I now know what it feels like to be nauseous from exercising.

This second week has been noticiably easier. The crunches are flying by, leg lifts are semi easier, and, god help me, the running is even easier.

Yesterday, we ran through a mini-obstacle course and then came back to our mats and did exercises in between. At one point, as I was sailing through the crunches, I had a huge grin on my face. Of course, that dissipated when we were told we were going to run another mile! This time up-hill. I took a short detour and picked up Clementine at the house and rejoined the group! And I still didn't come in last!

Today was our first hike. It was nice to take a break from all of the normal exercises. We brought Clementine and Buckley with us who joined Clover and Nomar. They all had a blast and are now sleeping quietly!

So how do I feel? Tired, but today, people started noticing a change in my body. Audrey mentioned my chest was much smaller and I've definitely noticed my stomach and inner thighs.
Sooooo, I did a little re-measuring from two weeks ago.

I have lost 6lbs, 1.5 inches in my chest, half an inch in my hips, and a good couple of inches in my waist! Not to mention, my stamina is up so I should be in good shape to get in some SCUBA diving when this first one is complete.

I am far from my goals, but I am certainly headed in the right direction! Woo-hoo!
