ab cramp...

If you are of the female population, you most likely have a skinny picture. :) Yes, you know it well...that one photo that you run across (sometimes on purpose, sometimes not) that jumps out at you, slaps you in the face, and makes you feel like total crap about your current physical self. Well, those pictures slapped Maili and I so hard that we are now in a food and exercise boot camp. Consisting of...clean eating (as natural of foods as possible...eating for fuel), weights 4 days a week, and loads of cardio.  Oh yeah, and with this comes way-early wake up calls...boo, no fun. We've made it 3 days...and we are alive. We are both looking forward to that 21st day when it is know to officially be a habit, and is supposed to not be as difficult. We shall see if this is really true. Today we did legs...which I haven't lifted in probably 4 months...and they quickly turned into jello. Romester and I have so much fun...we laugh a lot...even through the grunts of pain. :) We were doing abs at the end and the right side of my stomach (right next to the belly button) coiled up like it was just about to go into full cramp mode...owie.  Total weakness. Anywhoo...i'm scared of what my legs will feel like tomorrow. Let me just say that if anyone is thinking of starting back up exercising, eating right, or just hoping back on the heathy wagon...word of advice-find someone that will hop on board with you.  It's so much easier when you know someone is exactly where you are...suffering, sweating, depriving themselves of yummy food, waking up early...all of it.  Knowing you aren't alone is such an amazing feeling when it comes to working towards a goal.  More funny stories i'm sure are to come as Maili and I are pretty delirious in the mornings :).  Happy hump-day to all!

You know I'm on board! Errr, kind of. I HATE early mornings, and I live far away, so no morning motivation from you two.

Keep up the good work!

Colorado summers aren't made for hitting the gym! Go do the incline in the morning, that'll solve all your problems.

Kudos to CRC for finally getting Laughing Lab!
