Leanness Lifestyle Bootcamp Intensive III Week III

Yesterday marked the beginning of Week 3 of the Bootcamp III.

I'm down 4 pounds. I did have the Blizzard extravaganza the weekend prior to BCI-III so I've mainly lost gain from that episode. I'm working on an additional few pounds to lose over the next two weeks. I'll get there too.

Last night we had the conference call with Coach Dave. There are 32 members of this Bootcamp and together we have lost over 100 pounds. WooHoo!

We spoke about the addiction to foods; sugar mainly. Yes, I whole-heartedly know about that one. I have found that the only way I can stay away from sugar/processed foods/bakery is to view them as cigarettes and alcohol. Sounds crazy; but it works.

Today a co-worker brought in a pan of home made Special K bars. She melted one bag of butterscotch chips with one bag of chocolate chips for the frosting on top. Do you know how that smells? Very, very good. I had the gals cover them up with a sheet of saran wrap so I didn't have to smell them all day long.

Then I walked into the lunch area. There in a big bowl sits a mixture of dry roasted peanuts (shelled) with halloween candy corn! Can you imagine how good the sweet/salt must taste? It must be like a Salted Nut Roll.

I ran away from the bowl. I hope it is gone tomorrow. I don't know how much more I can take!

Tonight: 1 hour run during fb practice

M1: Oat pancake
M2: Banana/All The Whey Protein Powder
M3: Tuna pouch, 1 bag frozen veggies, apple
M4: EFL Taco Salad
M5: FF Cool whip/FF Pudding :)

Julie,

I'm doing the Ed Fitz also - only 6 days! I was inspired by your 100 mile race report from McNaughton, and want to do the 50 mile next year in prep for my first 100 at the Kettle Moraine. For the Ed Fitz, I'm also thinking 11 hours would be great. Maybe I'll see you there! - Brent

Brent-are you taking the 5AM start? Will you have a crew? I did Ed Fitz 100K two years ago and had a blast. Last year I had bronchitis so didn't start. If I don't get into Western States I'll be at Kettle too. And I'm hoping to be at McNaughton 100 this APril. I just wish it wasn't Easter Weekend. I don't know how that will go over...

Was hoping I could maybe 'sleep in' for the 7am start, but after emailing the RD, decided I better get out there at 5am. So... lets see - that means I'll catch the 3am bus, need to leave the hotel at 2:45, so set the alarm for 2:15? 2:30?? Kinda crazy to get up in the middle of the night to go run 62 miles... I guess that's why we do this, to be crazy? I know it will be great- in the dark and all! I'll look for you at the packet pickup or start, as we may be close to the same pace. If my wife and kids make the trip from Milwaukee, I'll have a crew. If not, I'll be in the same boat as you. Good luck! Glad to hear your recovery is going well. Rest up this week and we'll go for 11 hours on Sat! -Brent
