Okay, it isn't real boot camp, but it sure feels like it! About a year ago, I began slacking in my work-out routine. Where I once would not let more than a week or two go by without working out, soon turned into months. Life got busy, I got stressed, lazy and a little out of sorts. I have struggled to get back to the gym after so many years of hard work and commitment. It has been hard. Been there? Then you know what I mean. Anyway, my former trainer and friend, invited me to join his Boot Camp training a few weeks ago and I agreed. During the first session, I was mulling over in my mind how I was going to break the news to him that I was a wimp and didn't think I could live through another session. Thank goodness we had a four day break before session two. For three of those days, I could hardly bend my legs and my arms would not bend out straight. UGH! This is what I deserved for not keeping in shape. I discovered, however, in session two that everyone else felt the same!
Enter four sessions later and I am doing better! I don't feel quite as sore and I am actually having fun. I didn't realize how much I had been missing the social aspects of working out and I am feeling better mentally and physically as well.
I wasn't sure I wanted to share this because when you put it out there, you are accountable. I don't talk about riding my bike or boxing or any of that because I haven't been doing it. I want that to change, so I am sharing that I am working toward changing my mindset and getting back to my commitment to being healthy!
Have a blessed day!
