Things are looking UP!

BOOT CAMP: 60minutes (hills)
Calories: 1000

Straight up a ridiculously STEEP hill!

Last night at BOOT CAMP we started 'Hills'. This means a brand new BOOT CAMP location... in a valley surrounded by the scariest, tallest, steepest hills I have ever seen.

And as the names suggests... you run UP the hill and DOWN the hill. You take a BRIEF break to run UP the stairs and DOWN the stairs. All of that mixed with squats, lunges, burpies, mountain climbers, push-ups, knuckle squats, jumping jacks and calve raises.

My legs were burning... sweat was pouring off of me and I though at one point I was going to die. It was awesome. Carrie is VERY motivational and incredible quick... she always has the perfect comeback to ANY complaint. She makes working out FUN. I am going to miss BOOT CAMP. I don't know whether I will continue and to what capacity, but I hope to do it again in the future.

She also asked me a perplexing question... "Why do you run?" the build up to this question was me asking for help with the the BAD bra ouchies... I have discussed them in the past, but to prevent you from back tracking... they are severe burns I get just under my chest from my bra. Anyways... I explained that I run almost 30k a week... and she asked 'why?'. I thought about it a lot on the drive home. And honestly I run because I don't know what else to do. I am fat and I hate it. I run because it makes me sweat and makes me feel like I am doing something about being fat. I don't know if it works... or how well, but I simply don't know what else to do. So I run.

On the upside... Carrie recommend Aveeno calming lotion with Oatmeal... it stings at first, but feels better in the long run. I am also going to take a break from running to let them heal... once they do. I am going to try Vaseline... that should be fun. I will let you know how it goes.

Today also marks DAY ONE on my Nivea 'Good Bye Cellulite' regime... in 2 weeks I should have noticeably smoother skin. Interesting concept... and worth the 12 dollars. I saw the test done on Tyra... it seemed successful in all cases and I thought I would give it a try. With all this hard work I need to have some perks.

I also read my 150 things I hate list to Richard last night and had a GOOD laugh at myself. Hope you did too.
