Day 3

Another day that started with a 2 mile beach walk. There is just something so calming about the ocean. I am looking for dolphins. We saw some last year while visiting St. Simons island.

We have seen an alligator it was sunning on the golf course outside the lodges dining room window! His friends are turtles. They aren't scared of him/her and he/she doesn't eat them!

This morning after breakfast and my thermal walk, I attended a seminar on Stress Eating since I do that so well. Since the class was full there was more than just me that emotionally eats. Gotta quit that!!

Then I did a class call treading. Yes that is treadmill work. You climb two mountains and run two races. Doesn't that sound like fun? So your first mountain is slowing getting your incline up to 15 and then back down. And then you run a race with 2 minutes slow and 1 minute race (repeat, repeat, repeat). Then we climb the next mountain same as before and then slowly come down. And then run our finally race. Yes that kicked my butt too.

Next I needed to chill down so I went to nautical noodle which was a good class that I can incorporate at home as well.

We went to lunch after that and then got to see the showing of heavy with Mark Evans. It was good and he truly is an inspiration. He has finished two half mile marathons Cindy and he weighs over 300 pounds so yes I am quite impressed! And he brought both of his medals so he is proud of them too.

This afternoon I took a break for an hour and just read email and relaxed. Went back to a session on goal planning from 4:00-5:30. Dinner, thermal walk, and blogging. Busy days.

Keep doing a great job in my absence. I really appreciate all of you!!!

Day 2

Sorry everyone but I was too pooped to blog after my first full day at H3. It was a day that started with a 2 mile beach walk which was gorgeous. I will take pics and show y'all when I get home. Then we headed for breakfast. Breakfast food is always good (hard to mess up breakfast). After each meal we go for a mile walk which is called thermal walk. I think I might incorporate a walk after dinner each night. Plus it helps you sneak in an extra mile!!

Then we went to a class called Nutrition for Health. There we got introduced to a phrase - unwise - better - best. So if you are in the airport and there isn't a "best" option don't just jump to the unwise option for the heck of it. Well I was going to have a salad but couldn't find one so I had a burger with fries instead. Maybe they have a grilled chicken sandwich or something like that.

Body sculpting was next with a lot of squats. Boy my legs and arms were tired after that. After body sculpting was lunch followed by the mile thermal walk. So, now I am up to 4 miles (whew).

Then off to an intro to fitness equipment class. We were shown all the equipment we would be using and the proper way to use them.

After that I headed to the pool for water fitness. Wow - she kicked our butts. We swam lap after lap and jogged and kicked. I was worn out.

Went to get my metabo meal which is a 100 calorie snack (fruit or veggie sticks). Then off to class on planning healthy meals. Good class with good information.

Then it was off to dinner and another thermal walk. After that there was a presentation by Mark Evans. They were hoping to show the video but they didn't get it in before last night.

Got to room around 7:45 and got to talk to Coleman. He talked to me for exactly 1 minute and 12 seconds so I can tell he is really missing his Mommy!! Lol.

I miss everyone!
