Day Zero……….here we go!!!!!!!!!!
Here we are at day zero. The last three months have built up to this day. Damn sandbags. I have a feeling that I will hate those little things more than. I guess the saying….what does not kill you will make you stronger…holds true for this program. This is a hard, crazy, and intense program.
I am starting to track my calories more because I need to make sure that I get enough. I need to eat at least 1400 calories a day. Which seems like a lot to me, but I don’t want to have any issues during the bootcamp. I will be eating a lot of quest bars. They don’t always taste the best but they have carbs, fiber, and tons of protein which should provide with enough energy to get through this. I will be posting my weekly calorie and calorie goal in the next post.
My Grad School started yesterday as well. I am not sure how both the bootcamp and classes are going to complement each other. I am going to have to work extra hard and may have to miss some things in order to get everything done.
Sometimes it is hard for me realize what I have accomplished. I still see someone who is 90 pounds heavier. I lost 90 pounds…that is teenager. I have changed who I am and what I stand for. I have changed what I am willing to accept from others. Things that would have made me upset in the past don’t bother me anymore.
My goal is not quit the bootcamp (or school). I may miss out on a few days because of my birthday but my goal is to finish the next 8 weeks …and finish strong. I may not be able to do everything that is asked of me but I will at least try. I know my body and my limitations. I will have to work past those limitations and try to be better. I can only be better than what I was yesterday……
