OMGosh, I hurt so bad that I'm almost in tears. I did my yoga this morning, well actually only 20 minutes of it. I was sore but not in pain. I did my bootcamp challenges (see below) and felt ok but shoulders were sore then I did 40 min. of kickboxing. Just a couple min. into it I began wondering if I would be able to finish it. I did, but not without PAIN. I'm not just sore ... I'm actually in pain in my lower back. I don't know if I pulled something or what's going on but I know that I'm gonna have to take some motrin and a long steaming hot shower. I hope I wake up feeling better tomorrow cause right now I don't want to do anything else.

Ok ... read next paragraph with caution or just skip over.
Poopie Pump!
Well, we've lived in this house since the end of 2004 ... we have a septic tank & that bad boy has never been pumped until today. Whoa, that sucker was full ... ewww. The guy who did the pumping thought I would like to see how full it was ... ha, I wasn't interested at all but I guess I had to look to make for sure he did his job or what not. That stupid thing had the whole house smelly for a good hour. Even my candles couldn't cut that stink. The only good thing about it is at least it wasn't over flowing like the neighbors was doing a year or so back. I wish they would just put us on city sewer, I mean we do live in the city limits.

Boot Camp Challenges

Bonus move;
Starting Position
Start facing wall, arms-length away, feet slightly apart, legs straight with weight on toes. Place hands on wall with pointer fingers and thumbs forming a triangle. Keep arms in line with shoulders/chest (not above or below this region).

INHALE: Bend elbows about 90 degrees and lower body toward the wall without touching it.

EXHALE: Straighten arms and return to starting position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions
The further your feet are away from the wall, the more difficult this exercise will be. Also be sure not to lock knees or elbows.

Muscles Worked: Chest, Triceps, Shoulders


  1. I think you need to take a few days off from exercising.

  2. You should get some rest, maybe your over working yourself or you pulled something... You are really getting it though! Good for you!

  3. I probably should take a day off but to be honest I'm scared to take a day off. Scared that one day will put the weight back on me. So far this morning I'm feeling ok. Maybe I'll just do a really long walk video!
