Welp, I have finished Prevention Magazine’s Ballet Boot Camp. I feel like I made progress to becoming
fitter even if I didn’t lose any weight. I have still been doing walking and swimming. Sadly, the other day I while walking I wound up getting a combo of heat and fat rash. One of my friends shared an interesting on how to prevent it. Rub some deodorant on the spots where it is prone to happen. I shall try this next time I go walking after my rash has healed and I’ll let you know if it works.
One thing I really liked about the ballet boot camp was the working out plan which laid out a solid plan for alternating work outs with cardio. I think that it is a plan which I will keep even if I am doing other toning exercises. One I am planning on doing is one from the magazine Cosmopolitan which I just started randomly getting. Also, I have been working on the healthy eating idea and hope to share that with you in a couple of days.
Let me know if you have any ideas about plans I should try next.

I’m actually not really sure if it is in fact day 12. I have kind of gotten my days mixed up lately. I have been keeping up and pushing harder with both cardio and Prevention’s Ballet Boot Camp. My feet have started to kink up during some of the exercises which rather hurts the flow of them. My balance is still pretty bad and I often wobble. I don’t have a barre to stand with so I use chairs and walls to steady myself. I do however feel that my balance is getting better.
For my cardio, I have been swimming like crazy. I have been hitting the pool for an hour to an hour and a half. I did find one swim workout that I have enjoyed. It includes some fun exercises like spider manning, where you run up the wall. The only hard part is that it tells you to run back down the wall, but each step up pushes you away from the wall. So, when you reach the top you are floating several inches away and when you try to run back down you wind up awkwardly failing in the water.
