BootCamp a.k.a. "Shock Therapy"
Sunday, January 03, 2010
After being "dormant" for over a month...no excuses here...and a weight gain of 2.8 pounds...still no excuses...I knew exactly what I was doing...making choices and living with the consequences...I got a reality check today. I did the first BootCamp cardio video. I know they said it was only 10 minutes, but my body said it was at least 60 - rofl.
I signed up on this team almost a month ago because I had participated in the summer one which I really found quite simple. Of course, during the summer I was clocking in almost 2000 fitness minutes a month so a 10 minute video added to my daily regime was really nothing. Now, look at my fitness minutes for December...hmmmmm...did I have any? Oh, yeah, I think I did go for a walk one day. Yes, it was a very bad month on top of a semi-bad month in November. 'Nuff said. You get the picture.
Well, I turned on my computer, clicked on the cardio video and was shocked into reality. I could not believe how hard it was for me. Of course, I can't jump...no really, I can't jump...it's a brain thing...so I was having to modify as I went along. It was strongly suggested to review the video prior to having to do it for just those reasons. But did I heed that warning. Noooo!!! My bad. Lesson learned. Won't be caught unprepared again.
I very proud of everyone who is participating. I've seen many blogs today that have had before pictures. I applaud you. I didn't get my photo taken today, but I will soon since I am starting a new Battle on the 12th. I will post my measurements today.
Under Bust 40.0
Arms R-13.5 L 13.5

Here's to a great start for what I think is going to be an awesome year.
