BootCamp Beatdown

Hello all! As I mentioned yesterday, I began a boot camp last night. It's called Camp Gladiator, and super fit friend referred me to it. (I can only assume that it is a hilarious nod to the American Gladiators, one of the biggest triumphs in the history of American television.) So, last week, a little posse got together and we resolved to skinny-ize ourselves together. The way the camp works is pretty cool. It's 4 weeks long. There are multiple locations and times all around town. You pay up front and then for the 4 weeks can go to as many as you like, at anytime, at any of the locations. Talk about a "no excuses" format. It's convenient, but makes it hard to validate a skip day. So last night we went to our first session. It was "weights" day, so the whole hour revolved around a variety of strengthening exercises with a few cardio spurts sprinkled in. Oh holy heck. It was honestly the hardest thing I've done in a long time. My muscles shook so much it looked like I was attempting some kind of dance move. I'm so weak and realized how far I have to go. Nuts. Anyways, this morning I awoke high from dreams of my future body...which will look something like this: So I woke up and went to another session this morning at 5:30 a.m.! I'm so proud of myself for doing it. Something doesn't quite feel right about setting my alarm for 4:55 a.m., but something definitely feels great about being done with my workout for the day! Today was the "cardio" day. Due to rain, we did exercises in a parking garage. Most of it revolved around running up copious amounts of ramps. I seriously saw my life flash before my eyes at one point. There wasn't a single tiny bit of air movement. It was like being on a hamster wheel in the amazon jungle. The amount of sweat that poured from me was just downright inappropriate. But, I feel great! Like Wonder Woman! I'm excited to mix up my routine and get in some QT with three of my favorite pals. There is a skinnier, happier me in the future...I hope. In the meantime, my legs are so sore they're useless and towel trying my hair feels like someone is ripping of my arms....


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
