Today has been an interesting day. Mostly because my 8AM class started of like this:
I watched the man eat a guinea pig, A GUINEA PIG. WHY. Actually, I didn’t watch it happen I glued my eyes to my laptop in an attempt to not puke or cry. Each would have been equally embarrassing.
Oh it gets better.
FYI my 8AM is a Leadership in Technology class, I’m pretty sure that has nothing to do with eating bull reproductive parts. Unless I skipped that section of the syllabus.
What a great way to start of the morning. Or something.

Best Body Bootcamp Goals Week 2
Monday started week 2 of Best Body Bootcamp, which I’m absolutely loving – my muscles hurt so good and it’s actually making me enjoy strength training again, miraculous.
Last weeks goals actually went pretty well. Tina has a check-in sheet for us to check off daily if we achieved our goals, typing in that little ‘x’ gives me enough satisfaction to try really hard to achieve my goals everyday. Who knew a little ‘x’ was all it took?
- Stretching – I was really good about this one, I think I only missed one day. Stretching is pretty ingrained in me after so many years of dance, as long as I remember to do it I’m pretty good about it.
- Sleep – I’m making progress! There were a 5 and 6 hour night that were not so great, but I made a much better effort at actually trying to get enough sleep. But sometimes procrastination happens and you are up until 1:00AM writing a speech for your public speaking class. Whoops.
A new week means new(ish) goals:
- Drink 60 oz of water everyday – I suck at drinking water. I don’t hold a lot of liquid and I hate having to get up every 20 minutes to pee, but I definitely see a huge difference in my workouts and energy when I’m well hydrated. I know 64 oz is usually the norm for water goals but I have my trusty 30 oz Eddie Bauer water bottle, so I’m aiming to drink two of those everyday. So far so good, and my bladder is getting a nice workout.
- Sleep – okay this one isn’t new, but it’s something I really need to work on so I’m giving it a second week, actually I’m giving it the whole month but I think I’ll add a different goal next week. I’ve been so much better about it this past week, I’m just hoping to keep it up!
How do you stay motivated towards achieving your goals?
Are you a Bizarre Foods fan? What’s the weird thing you’ve ever eaten? I eat a lot of weird combinations on a regular basis, but nothing that comes close to bull testicles or guinea pigs.
