Every summer has a story

This summer my story is going to be entitled:  Sleeveless Shirt.  Why?  Because I'm gonna work my ass off until I can wear one and not think twice about how I have old lady swinging arms.  You know what I'm talking about. 

I completed 3 weeks of my bootcamp and missed the 4th due to our Boston trip (which I'll blog about next!).  For 3 weeks I was hardcore consistent with the nutrition of clean eating and water drinking.  I worked out 3 days a week at boot camp and 2 days a week of 45 min. cardio at my gym.  I lost 6.5 inches and 10.4 pounds.  It's not noticeable because I have so much further to go but it's a damn good start and therefore I'm sold and I'm continuing. 

Boot camp #2 starts tomorrow.  I'm starting another 14 day detox tomorrow which I found to be pretty easy with boot camp #1 four weeks ago.  It SUCKS BIG TIME but it's not hard.  It's just clean eating.  It's not complicated, there are very few rules, it's just clean eating.  Rid the toxins then don't introduce them back in in any great quantity.  And yes, that includes caffeine.  I know.  That bites the big one.  

Clean eating and regular exercise.  I'm not gonna lie to say I'm kinda bummed it works but I'm pretty sure that's the magic secret everyone searches for in a pill.  Swallowing a pill would just be so much easier.  This, however, is the real deal and so for now it's a new way of life.  I have so much further to go and I'm committed.  

Operation Sleeveless Summer may become Operation Sleeveless Fall but that's ok.  I'll be with it as long as it takes.  And if you see me in November in a tank top, please don't ask me if I'm cold.  Just notice the old lady swinging arms aren't following me around anymore.  I may even order one of those shirts.  You know the ones I'm talking about.

Oh, yeah.

  1. I'm really proud of you Ashley. I'm scared of attempting to designate this much time to myself. I'm too used to giving all my time to the other people and then I have no one to blame.
