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....
