Big Bummed Boot Camp Week 5

     Wow, that week  was a complete loss. I exercised Monday only. At least I ran on that day. Then I got sick--really, really sick. The kind of sick that makes you not want to get out of bed for days on end.
     Needless to say, I was celebrating Saturday when I finally got to move around again without worrying that my head would fall off. So, for all of those days when I wasn't exercising, just lying in bed bemoaning my fate, I made plans. Lots of plans.
    First off, I decided to stick to a calorie counting diet. It worked for me before, I'll do it again. I thought about doing the Weight Watcher thing, but honestly, it seemed just like more work trying to figure out the whole points thing. I'm a simple person, I hate figuring things out. Calories are easy, I can do that. 
    Now, I will be a good girl and try to still eat more veggies and less carbs. I know my weaknesses, carbs adore me, they cling to my thighs.
     Ooh, another thing. I got my running shoes. Aren't they spiffy.

You will be able to see them a mile away. I hope the pain in the side of my legs will go away now that I have these puppies.
     Another exciting thing to mention. Hubby has started dismantling my bike. He is stripping it all down so it can be painted. I am leaning towards a peach color. Here is what my bike looks like right now. Isn't that pathetic looking.
     I can't wait to see what the finished product will look like!
     I am eager to work hard this next week and make up for my non-exercise icky week. Take care everyone, and get moving.
