Boot Camp Drill Instructor Job

Weighed in this morning at 168 pounds, up two from yesterday.

Yesterday was my non-diet day. But I still did some exercising, doing my 2-mile walk-n-jog in the morning, and two sets of sit-ups, crunches, and push-ups. I also did more yard work in the back.

As far as food is concerned, that afternoon I did the salad bar at Sizzler's, a plate of spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, topped with salsa, and a plate of strawberries and pineapple, and a Diet Coke, nothing else. But that evening, I hooked up with some friends at the local tavern and had a couple of beers, along with four slices of BBQ chicken pizza, and shared some shepherd's pie.

The demon of gluttony was plaguing me the whole time at the tavern. I actually found myself letting a friend advise me what to eat, hence the BBQ chicken pizza. Otherwise, the good angel was telling me to stick with the grilled chicken salad.

I still had a good time though, which is what it was all about.

It's funny how when I get myself focused on weight loss, that I find other people focused on weight loss also. Somehow when our minds are keyed into something specific, we tend to look for others keyed into the same thing. One gal was telling me about the boot camp she goes to every morning. Another guy said he's trying to get himself back on a diet. And I have a colleague who's lost 50 pounds over the past couple of years.

A boot camp drill instructor sounds like an interesting career. That gal said she pays $100.00 to this person for an 8-week course. Basically, the instructor tells people to run over there, and then "gimme 20 push-ups", and then go lift those weights, now do 30 sit-ups, etc. etc. How hard could that job be?
