Boot Camp News!

Congratulations to Erin and her husband on having their 3rd boy! Lucas is 8 lbs, 2 oz, 20″ long. Erin is a boot camper who attended right up to the very end. Can’t wait to see pictures and then to have you back at boot camp.

Nice work to all of the boot campers who ran in yesterday’s 100 on 100. Lisa S., Samantha G., and Kelly L.

The 100 on 100 Relay is a team based distance running experience. The event starts early in the morning and most participants finish between 8:30 PM-10:30 PM. The total distance is 100 miles and the course follows scenic route 100 the entire way. Our course displays all the angles Vermont has to offer from small towns and farms, to mountains and lakes. This event serves as a charity fundraiser for Vermont based youth charities that promote active and healthy lifestyles in support of self-esteem development.

Congratulations to Emma D. for coming in 3rd in her age group and 7th overall at the Smuggs Race Series last weekend. There’s one more race left. It’s on a Sunday in October. Many of us should be able to do that.

 Challenge Reunion

Are you coming?

It’s 100 Day Challenger Reunion and Celebration time!!! We will be gathering at Anita Lotto‘s home (thanks Anita!) on Wednesday August 27th at 6pm! Her address is 221 South Main Street in Cambridge Village. It is located right next to the Cambridge 360 Building which is next to Kinney Drug. Potluck if you can but no stress! Maybe more appetizer/finger food style so as to make it easy for folks…but do whatever! I’ll supply plates/bowels and utensils. Let’s do this! I am so excited to see you all again, to check in and to catch up!!!–Megan

Have the case of the droopies? This person did, but Boot Camp fixed that 🙂

Look at those sweat marks . . . this was a memorable workout for sure!

At our family reunion. We wanted to put a 4th one on, but decided otherwise. I’m the oldest, followed by my brother, then my sister Jennifer who has her hair pulled back and is leaning on my sister doing the plan, then comes Rachel (who’s on me) and then our baby-sister, Hannah! We had a great time together!

What’s the answer to these questions? 1. On avg it takes about ___ weeks to see measurable changes in your body after starting a regular exercise routine. 2. Do you burn more calories watching TV or sleeping?

These are addicting for some. We need to work our brain as much as our body. How many can you get?


Back to School-Time to Get Organized

Busy schedules will heat up again. Make sure you still make time for yourself. Too many Moms and Dads say they don’t have to get/stay in shape due to their children’s schedules. However, it’s us, the parents, not the kids who are in control of what you can do for yourself, of the food choices that are made, etc.

One way to take the pressure off and fuel everyone’s body with good food choices is to embrace the crock pot–put it on your counter and use it A LOT!

Homemade Larabars-4 Recipes



  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon water
  1. Combine dates, cashews, peanut butter and water in a food processor and puree until mixture starts to stick together. Add a little more water if necessary to help mixture come together.
  2. Pick up date mixture and using your hands work to squeeze it together into one big clump. Mash it down on a cutting board or sheet of wax paper to form into one even rectangle shape using the sides of your hands (or a knife) to make the edges straight.
  3. Slice into 12 even squares. For best results store in the fridge, although bars can be kept at room temperature.

You definitely have to try some of these recipes. I made the banana breakfast cookies (added muesli) and the peanut butter jelly bars (w/out the jelly). The kids tested them, gave them thumbs up and now they’re in the freezer. There are 31 recipes.
