I hate blisters!

Blisters suck! But, I think I found a way to keep going on. I went to the gift shop here and bought a "Blister Pack" and put it on my little toe. I managed going on a 5 mile (2 hour) hike today as well as working out 5 more hours with that in classes like Toning, Treading, Ball Workout, Pool (twice)! I've burned 4100 calories today. So, I'm still going strong! Here's the day's schedule:

6:00 am Total Body Conditioning or Open Gym (optional)
7:00 am BREAKFAST (PB & J Panini)
8:30 am Hike (5 miles!)
11:15 am Pool or Open Gym (I did pool)
12:30 pm LUNCH (Hawaiian Pizza and Tortilla Soup)
*** I went on an off campus cooking demo and it rocked! We ate Zucchini Soup & Chicken Parm over Whole Wheat Egg Noodles! 310 calories! We were full! We didn't get back until 2:15 so missed the Lecture on campus.
1:15 pm Lecture: Cooking Demo by Chef Cameron
2:30 pm Ball Works
3:30 pm Treading
4:30 pm Pool
5:30 pm DINNER (Stuffed Chicken w/ Wild Rice and for dessert 2 Choc Dipped Strawberries!) Awesome dinner tonight!

For those of you coming here ... bring 2 bathing suits! Regular clothes are minimal. Workout clothes ... bring a lot! Bring a lot of bras & underwear as you'll sweat them up! Sports bras recommended. You don't need a beach towel as they provide towels here. Bring adhesive tape (or the front desk has some along with duct tape) as you sometimes need to wrap those toes and heels. I HIGHLY ADVISE BUYING a Polar Heart Rate Monitor/Watch!!! The Body Buggs are nice but you can't wear them in the pool! :)

Okay ... I have a massage appointment in 20 minutes ... gotta run! I'm in need of some pampering since my muscles ache really bad! :)


  1. Dee Dee,

    Love your post. Thanks for sharing your expierences. It seems as if you and roomie are having a great time.

    Roomie's husband,

  2. So glad for your updates, Dee!
    This may sound like a silly question but do you put the duct tape directly on your feet or on the outside of your socks so it's slippery?

    3 more days!!!!!!

  3. Enjoy your massage you deserve it! I have enjoyed reading your blog as I will be there Feb 7 for a month. Why do you think you got blisters? I have been trying to walk for about 3 hours with my wright socks to try and avoid them, I've had them before, I know how painful they are. Good Luck and I'm happy they haven't slowed you down.

  4. The information you are providing is fabulous. Thanks.

  5. Thanks for the awesome tips. Keep up the great work!

  6. I agree! This blog is the BOMB!! I love all the tips and will be referring to it often as the time draws closer for me to go! :)

  7. You are doing so great and it looks like you and your roomie are having a good (if not exhausting) time. Keep the pictures coming and I miss you.

  8. I miss you too honey bunny! :) Kisses! Muah!
