A blow to the ego...

Bikini Boot Camp (hereafter to be known as BBC) officially started tonight, but they also scheduled the nutrition night this evening as well. I skipped the workout in favor of going to the nutrition night, and I'll get to go to a makeup class on Saturday morning instead. The nutritionist talked about a lot of interesting stuff, and points I took away:
  • Drink lots of water, and add trace mineral drops to help keep you hydrated. (OK, I already knew to drink lots of water. And I do.)
  • Flax oil is good for you. (Hmm, haven't tried that one...)
  • Eat 5 - 6 small meals a day, spaced 3 to 3.5 hours apart. (OK, I know that, but don't really practice it per se...) And be sure to eat a good balance of proteins, carbs, fats and fiber.
  • Make sure to take calcium, magnesium and vitamin C supplements when you are working out. (Oh good, I do that already!)
  • Sleep is really important. (Hmm, I could improve here.)
So what is this blow to the ego that I speak of? Before the session started all the gals were chatting, finding out what boot camp classes everyone was in (beginner deep south, intermediate north west, etc).
A gal asked me if I was in the post natal boot camp.
Post natal...me?
No.
The only children I have are of the canine variety.
Sigh...

Heh, good luck with BBC. I do some of the things suggested. I drink lots of water, but I only do 4 meals.

I could likely use BBC after all the Stampede Breakfasts and parties this week...lol.

Did you pop the inquiring lady? It always amazes me all of the stuff we already know and sometimes don’t do (mine is drinking fluids).
