June 27 Bootcamp

I decided to sign up for the June 27 Bright Line Eating Bootcamp!   This will be my fourth time!   I am doing very well right now and am at my goal weight.  But I have some exciting events coming up and I'm superstitious that I will jinx myself and totally blow it and ruin everything.  Yep, I sometimes lack confidence.  My overriding goal this summer is to train for a backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon.  This is the 3rd year in a row I signed up for this and I had to cancel the 2 previous years for various reason, in the first year definiltey related to my eating being out of control.   I want to do this trip!  I also have a high school reunion to go to.  Okay, I don't care how much I weigh for that.   In fact, I'm sure I'll be liked more if I weigh more, right?   But it will be stressful and scary and I'll be under pressure to drink and party; and I just wouldn't mind some extra strength from my BLE community to get me through it all.   If you want to join me, or just learn more about BLE, you can pretty much learn it all from these videos:
video 1
video 2
video 3
And the upcoming webinar on June 21 and 22.
And here is the link to the susceptibility scale.
You can do the program yourself with the info in these videos.  But the bootcamps are really great.

New BLE bootcamp starting June 27

The best part about the BLE program is the bootcamp, and a new one starts in a few weeks.  I'm almost tempted to do it again even though I have access to all the video modules and coaching calls from previous bootcamps.  If you are interested to learn more, you can watch the 4-part video series, that starts tomorrow.  Here is the link to video 1, which opens tomorrow.   The video series is very educational.  In video 4 is where you get the big sell to join the bootcamp and I can't remember if that has content as well, but certainly in the first 3, you'll get lots of useful info and not much sell.  Also here is a link to the susceptibility quiz, which she refers to right away.  I'm a 10 on the scale, which goes from 1-10, ha!  BLE was definitely made for me.  

By the way, I'm on day 17 of my Squeaky Clean BLE Challenge (SQBLE) (see previous posts).  It's going great!  but soon I return home from my peaceful vacation and that will be a challenge.   I should post about my re-emersion into regular life and how that goes.

This is going to get boring fast.  But next week I travel and I'm not sure I can get that much fresh produce every day while traveling so I'm wondering if I should swap some veggies for a grain or something--oats are easy.  Stay tuned.
