Day 1

This blog is going to be short because I am about to DROP!  I am so tired, I can hardly type this.  I'm happy to report though, that I made it to the top of the stop sign hike.  This is something everyone does on Monday and Saturday and each time your try to improve your distance and time (2 hour limit).  It is 4.5 miles, but it is incline and it is hard.  The last 1.5 miles is the hardest, and the last 3/4 mile is brutal.  Other classes today were stretch, step and pump, pool, and circuit.  I was in an extremely foul mood by the time we went to dinner, but felt a lot better after we got to eat.  We had a lecture on using your calories wisely, and then Tara (from the BL) talked to us for a while about life on and off the show.  Here are the stats and info for today (I use the BodyBugg for calorie burn and steps).
