HOLY MOLY! I can’t believe we already made it through week 1 of our New Year’s Weight Loss Boot Camp! How are you holding up? I’m sure wherever you are (if you’re in the US) it’s probably cold. Unless of course you live in SoCal. And then we really don’t like you right now! Ha!
Seriously though, it’s been a FANTASTIC WEEK! I cannot believe how many wonderful people we have participating in our #WLBootcamp, DietBet, and hanging out in our private Facebook Group (have you joined? If not, you are totally missing out). Seriously, keeping up with all of you has been a full time job………THAT I LOVE! The support everyone is passing around makes me want to try to so much harder, because hello, constant virtual high fives and hugs.
So check in below. Leave a comment telling us about your first week. Did you weigh in this morning and see a shiny new (***lower***) number? I sure hope so. Are you sore? Have you been squatting and doing your push-ups? What about the bootcamp? I know so many people are doing our 6-week online bootcamp and loving it (okay, they hate it in a loving way!).
Did you feel like this at any point this week?
If you’re a blogger, please leave a link to your post today so we can come smother you with motivation and support!
This Week’s Mini-Challenge
I want you to say, write, type, paint, or WHATEVER medium you choose, THREE NICE THINGS about yourself every.single.day this week. Starting today and ending next Tuesday. That would equal 21 nicey-nice things about you. You can share them with the world, or keep them to yourself. But honestly, you probably should share them, because it will make you feel so much better, and then we can agree with you and make you feel even more spectacular. So do it, m’kay?
So that’s it! We’ll see you here, same time next week for another check-in! MWAH!
All the other good stuff:
It’s a FREE online 6-week burst training bootcamp class that requires nothing but you in your workout clothes! No equipment necessary, for real! And, it’s guaranteed to whip your butt into shape.
Are you ready for the luckiest race of the year? One filled with rainbows and gold and clovers? We are going IRISH with our Shamrock Shuffle 5K/10K/Fun Run! Who knows… Maybe you will find a pot of gold at the finish line! We thought it would be pretty golden to donate a portion of our proceeds to support our heroes and through the Wounded Warrior Project! The virtual race will be held on March 16, 2013, and can be run anywhere! Click the badge below for more details!
You can also download the Charity Miles app and earn even more money for the Wounded Warrior Project, or one of several other great charities, with every mile you walk, run, or bike.

WOW. That’s sure a lot of awesome tools to help you get started on your weight loss journey. Heck, I think I just lost 5 pounds writing all about it! But in all seriousness, losing weight isn’t easy, and sometimes it really sucks. But I promise if you hang out around here with us, it will suck a little less and be a whole helluva lot more FUN.
We’re so glad you’ve joined us for this journey. Good luck, and get shrinking!
