today was my health evaluation and my meeting with the nutrionist. Very eye opening. My BMI is 33 :( my blood pressure was 147/95. NOT good. But I think it was more from stress and nervousness. I came home and it was 111/86. Much better. Aerobic fitness was great and bicep strength was pretty good too but back flexibility. Yeah that was almost none but with this back what do you!

The nutritionist was great. She gave me a food menu to follow along with going over the food groups and portion sizes. She bumped my calorie intake from 1200 to 1400/1500. I was like WHAT??? I can't eat 1200 as it is. So we will see how this goes. She firmly believes I don't eat enough. I know Rachel :) You've told me that for a while and I promise I will do better.

Tomorrow is Day 2. I still pretty worn out from yesterday and really sore. My back is what hurts the most but hoping after another good nights sleep we will be ready to go tomorrow. OH and I found out our instructor is the boot camp instructor. oh man are we in trouble!

on the scrapping homefront...yeah it sucks. I have not felt like scrapping in forever. I hate it. I don't like anything I make. I don't like any of my pictures. None of the paper. Nothing. No ideas. I just can't do it. I don't know what the problem is. Maybe I got away from it for to long. It really bothers me cause I want to be able to scrap and have fun. I just need to find some challenges and try to do what I can I guess. We will see what happens

Hang in there Becky! It sounds like you're in very good hands. The doc tells me I don't eat enough either and that is my biggest problem. Yeah right!! LOL I know....I know.....we should listen to those who know best! As for scrapping...I've got a scrapping block right now too so maybe we should give each other a good challenge to give us a kick start! ~HUGS~
