    I rejoined bootcamp. I'm on a 12 week program, and it's no joke. I'm tired. Sore. Tired. and here are some hilights.

  • We have to wear all black. Because the instructor likes it. Anything you wear that isn't black, including under garments if they show, is $5.

  • You have to track all your food. If you don't bring your meal tracker, $10.

  • You weigh in once a week, for every pound you gain? $5.

  • If someone in the class stops any given exercise, we start all over. If anyone doesn't do the exercise right, they are called out over the speaker system, and we are all made to do them over again "this one is for soo and soooooooo"

  • They don't care if you can't do a push up. You will do them, or the whole class has to keep trying until you succeed. I can't express how badly my arms hurt from this.

  • Not counting out loud, and LOUD results in starting back at 10. If someone isn't counting you want to punch them in the face. This is suppose to promote teamwork.

  • Can't do 1,000 jumping jacks? You'd be suprised what you can do when the whole class is pissed at you.

  • No bread, or even whole grains. (sob)

  • And the worst most horrid thing ever. No alchohol. I am sure I'll sneak a vodka soda here or there, with fifteen limes. But it will be straight vodka. No delicious cherry or chocolate vodka. And only after I've been on a consistent weight loss for a few weeks.
You can bet your bottom dollar that I am going to meet my May 31st goal of losing 30 lbs, or 2 sizes whichever comes first.

I'm sorry --- bootcamp, or Hell? I admire your strength, because even though my fluffy frame desperately needs something like this, I would undoubtedly be the one cowering in the corner in the fetal position, screaming for her mother. Good luck!

Sounds hard core but it will be effective.
