I've been MIA

Hola Peeps!

I've been bad about blogging but I have been doing Bootsie. Giggles McGhee confessed the other night she doesn't like the name Bootsie...she prefers Boot Camp. I really don't care either way.

I do like this Bootsie group. I do miss those from last class that aren't with us but my girl Donna is with me and that is all that matters. Three Stooges are in full effect as usual. Rusty is meaner than ever. He was more like Bob with his first class and now he is just straight up Jillian the majority of the time which is what I need.

We did a class that I really liked the other night, strength circuit. Lots of free weight work and push ups. I think push ups have made a difference in my arms so I will do them without bitching.

Life is great outside of Bootsie. There is a boy in the picture and he is very supportive of me being healthy. The other night he said "what are your goals for this boot camp?" I hadn't even thought about goals. I just focus on living through the next class. I guess it is time to get with my Jillian and discuss what I should be focusing on as a goal.

Hope all is well!

Bootsie began last night and as you can see by the previous post I was dreading it but it was fine. It was a little different because some of the peeps from the past class weren't there but we had new ones that I am sure I will bond with while inducing pain on my body.

So I was dreading it and I walked in and all of the sudden got so excited to see Molly and Rusty. Remember the first day back to school when you were little you were uncertain about things but the minute you saw a friend or found your classroom you were fine...that was me last night. RedHead almost needed CPR because during introductions I said "Hi, I'm Robin and this is my second boot camp and I love it." It just popped out of my mouth and Red almost fell off his stability ball. It is a love/hate thing but clearly I do believe it is the best thing for me.

So the veterans (why do I feel like I am part of the MTV Road Rules Challenge) decided to keep our fitness and measurements and we went on a 2.5 mile walk. It was such nice weather and BCMama kept us entertained the whole time. Later at my house we threw out the question of whether we could hire her as a private walker/runner because she makes the time fly by but here is the best thing.....I felt amazing after wards. I had missed it because in Cancun all I did was walk to the pool or beach....I did swim up to the bar for refreshers.

I was really dreading Bootsie because I knew I would have to weigh and while I was pretty good in Cancun with food I was a nightmare with drinking. All inclusive and making friends with everybody was a train wreck for me but get we get back from our walk and we have to get body fat and weigh....vomit. I get on the scale and I lost 2.3 while I was in Cancun so I scream to RedHead "oh my god I lost 2.3 while in Cancun. I will drink everyday." Rusty, who was writing all my numbers down and was leaning down sounded like Satan "you will do no such thing." Poor Rusty has his hands full with the 3 Amigos!

Bootsie starts tonight!

This is a conversation with me and Dawn a few moments ago. I love Bootsie but after a few days on my own I am over being fit and just want to drink everything since the weather is so nice.

i am dreading class

i want to be skinny and drink everything


me too. any idea how we make that happen?


who knows


i'm pretty sure i'll never be skinny but i am also confident that i can drink everything:-)


i love that quote

Thank God I return back to Rusty tonight at 6pm. Life will suck and he will punish me I am sure because he hasn't tortured me in 10 days but oh well. Seriously if I didn't have a trainer and hadn't paid for Bootsie I would be on a patio or pool right now with a cooler full of beer. I know me...I do a program and I do great and then I go back to old ways. I wonder if I will always have to have a trainer???????
