Day 17

I had a diet Pepsi today!!!  It was so delicious!  A group of us that are in our third week were taken out to lunch, in a "real world" environment, with the program director.  We went to Quizno's.  I got the beef, bacon, and cheddar torpedo because it sounded so "bad" but was only 385 calories.  It was very good.  Paige said we could have a diet pop if we wanted to because that is what will likely happen in the real world.  So I got the diet Pepsi and it was like drops of fizz from heaven.  I will likely dream of it tonight.

While I was stretching at a bike in the gym getting ready for our mountain class, one of the new people for this week came up to me and said "You never change, do you?".  I had no idea what he meant, so I said "what?".  He then said something like "You're just always going and hard core and kicking ass in every class!".  I was SO excited.  No on has ever told me that I was one of "those people" in a work out or a class.  It really made me feel like I'm working as hard as I think I am, because others are noticing it.  So, that made my day.

We had step 'n pump (aka step 'n puke) with John today.  He is just insane in those classes.  My entire shirt was soaked and I really did feel like I was going to throw up at one point, but he just doesn't even stop for that.  But thats what I'm here for, a whoopin', and he's good at it.

I went on another hike today and it was AWESOME.  We went to "Fern Gully" and it was beautiful.  We had to walk through about a mile and a half of sand which was exhausting, and then we climbs and scaled rocks to get to the top.  Next we got over and went down the other side of get to this Fern Gully and since it's been raining here there was a bit of a waterfall, which made a little stream we had to hike through.  When we got to the place we were working toward, it was so worth it.  It was amazing.  It was just this small area where two big high up pieces of the mountains create this secret kind of location where the water runs down and forms a pool.  It seemed like we were on a tour of the tropics in Hawaii or something, not Utah.  It was a very hard hike though.  Had I known there would be 3 miles round trip of sand to walk through, I probably would have said no.  But I'm glad I did get to see it.  I hope you can tell what I've talked about when you look at the pics.
