Fitness Challenge: Days 20 – 27

I have to make a confession–I failed at the challenge in the past few days, but it wasn’t for a lack of effort. I have really sensitive skin. I don’t talk about this much because I find it embarrassing when it flares up. What happens is that my skin reacts to underwire on my bra, pants edges, underwear edges, etc. I get pimples on a good flare-up and huge, painful boils when it’s bad. This was a bad flare up, on my stomach, along the edge of where my pants sit. It got to the point where I couldn’t wear pants all weekend, only skirts with elastic edges. I would cry out in pain as I sat down at times. It sucked. I worked out hard on Thursday before all the Thanksgiving eating. But the next day it went from somewhat sore to wearing no pants and I couldn’t jump or bend over without being in horrible, horrible pain. So I had to take a few days off to heal. Only today did it finally break, get smaller, start to itch and stuff. Even then, when I was working out, it was sore doing some stuff and I had to modify. Boo!

Today though, was good. I went to my evening boot camp and worked out with Jana. She had us do a mix of arms and legs and a mix of Insanity thrown in there for good measure! I know I will be sore tomorrow, just in time to go again tomorrow night. Today’s food wasn’t amazing…there were a lot of leftovers from the weekend that I finished off. Tomorrow will be better.


Toast and peanut butter. 2 cups of water.


Sprinkles cupcake–chocolate w vanilla icing. 4 cups of water.


Baked ziti and broccoli. 2 cups of water.


Skinny vanilla latte and banana bread.


Chicken roast with asparagus, potato, and carrots. 4 cups of water. 1 glass of wine. Pumpkin pie.

Yup, lots of pie in the house. Made my sister and her family eat lots of it tonight!! Will be disposing of the rest, can’t have it in the house as I am the only one left who eats it.
