Project D1

I start a brand new journey tomorrow. It is one that I know is going to change my life, and I'm so excited and scared all at the same time! It is a Boot Camp program that really is meant to kick my butt and get me into tip top shape. D1 is a training facility that is geared to training collegiate athletes and pro-sports players that was started by Will Bartholomew an ex-Broncos player, and is co-owned with Peyton Manning of the Colts and Philip Rivers of the Chargers. (you can click on their logo below for their website)
So why go to this extent? Well, I am one of those people who gets super duper motivated, works like crazy for a few days and then I either get hurt or I fall from exhaustion because I did too much too fast. It has been a very vicious cycle with me. I have never been good about pacing myself or being consistent. So I have joined D1 for help to get me on track so that I can look great in time for the wedding and fingers crossed, wear a two piece (for the first time in my life) on the honeymoon. Gotta wear a two piece if you are in Hawaii, right?? kenyit I can't think of anyone better to help me than some big 'ole football players and trainers?! I'm hoping that during this next year, I am set on the right track so that I can break this ugly cycle and start being a consistent "athlete". From there, I would love to get involved in running marathons (1/2 of course) and just being a healthy person.

These next 365 days are going to be crazy, not just for this new change with me but also because of the wedding and the new house. I am a very lucky girl for all of these wonderful things and for this great opportunity. I am treating it like my very own Biggest Loser competition.

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes on the house! You guys are truly awesome, and I absolutely love your support! I will let you guys know tomorrow how my first boot camp session went, but I am preparing to be one very sore puppy this week!

Hope you all had a great Halloween!


  1. Good luck on your boot camp! I checked it out and they don't have any locations near me (dang!). :D Hope you keep us informed of how it's going!

  2. WoW!!! I wish I had even a tiny fraction of your courage and determination!!! Best of luck and I am looking forward to hearing how things are going!!! Maybe it will inspire me?!? :-)

    We went to Hawaii on our honeymoon, too!!! You will LOVE it, two piece or not! I most assuredly did NOT wear a 2-piece and we had an AMAZING time!!! We went to Kauai, Maui, and Oahu!!! Best vacation ever!!!

  3. You are so inspiring! Hope you're not too sore after bootcamp. You are going to be the fittest bride and you'll look great on your honeymoon!
    Looking forward to hearing how the training goes.
    Ps. I've got your button too!


    You've got some serious motivation working... i can hear in your words! ;) Can't wait to hear about your progress....

  5. Boot camps are the best and props to you for giving it your best shot! It will for sure get you in the best shape, I went to one one summer and it was the best thing I could have done. Please let me know how it goes! :)

  6. My friend did a boot camp and lost 75 pounds. I never thought he'd stick with it, but he's been going strong and it's been almost a year.

  7. Good for you! That will be an awesome experience.
    I definitely just lack in the motivation department when it comes to working out... I guess I need someone to kick my butt.
    Thanks for coming by my blog today.

  8. That is a great goal. I hope you succeede and post a great photo in your two piece!
