Boot Camp Week 3

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

I didn't get much time in during week 2 because of the holiday. I was only able to go once. Monday evening is the beginning of week 3. I will be going again Wednesday and Friday this week. I was able to get one on one training, because nobody else showed up for the class. A couple of the exercises where extremely challenging. I did my best for a starter. The mountain climber with the gliders, and modified push up with a medicine ball. I was still on the tired side, because I went to the gym in the morning. I started off with the stationery bike followed by Zumba after work. I'm not going to get weighed again, until my doctor's visit next week. I can say is that my body is certainly confused about my workouts. emoticon Keep it moving! Keep on losing!

Boot Camp Day 3

Friday, June 27, 2014

Last night I was still struggling with the shoulder pain. I end up taking some Motrin. When I woke up this morning I felt like a whole new person. However, before I went to bed last night I was thinking about not attending Boot Camp Class in the morning. I was up early and went to class and he want me to start off with 2 -3 minutes of walking on the treadmill. I told him I just want to jump right in with the jogging. So, for starters 6 laps and inside we did circuits on the machines, weighed ropes, bent presses, squats, back extensions, just to name a few of our rotations. The hardest ones was pushing a 25lb weight down one end and back and one minute step off from a bench. Overall, I still feel like Wednesday session was the toughest thus far. I thought about going to Zumba this morning, but I will had to pass until next week. I need to allow my body to adjust to new workout. I like to keep it injury free. Keep it moving! Keep on losing! emoticon

    The Motrin must have brought down some swellng in your shoulder and is allowing it to heal better! Maybe a few more nights like that will have you good as new in no time!!!

Good for you for making your fitness a priority despite not wanting to do it! We are made of what we do most consistently!

I can't wait for you to attend Zumba class! lol My FAVE emoticon

    Good for you for going even when you didn't feel like it. It is days like those that give me the most satisfaction because I overcame the "I don't wannas." As far as the shoulder is concerned, keep an eye on it and if it starts to bother you during a work out make sure to back off or even get a modified or different exercise from your trainer. There is no shame in making sure you stay healthy!

Boot Camp Day 2

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

This morning I went to the 6 o'clock session. Let me tell you it was much harder than day one. It was six of us this morning, and he started us off by running 6 laps around the building. After we got back inside we were instructed to get a mat, kettlebell, free weights, medicine ball, and a step platform. OMG! I hate being on the floor doing exercises. One of the exercises was walking push ups on the step platform. So many different challenging exercises this morning. At the end he didn't give us a break in between, but went right into the next exercise. Followed by one last run around the building. So, we did a total of 8 laps in all this morning. I am pooped! Next session is Friday same time. Still happy with the decision in signing up for the class. I can't wait to see how my body have changed when it's all over. Looking forward to side by side snap shots to share. Keep it moving! Keep on losing!

Boot Camp Day 1

Monday, June 23, 2014

Well this evening was my first every true Boot Camp class. Nobody else showed up for the 6 o'clock class, so I was able to get a one on one personal training session. He started me out with lap around the building, followed by several planks, sit ups, kettlebell swings, and many other weighted moves. I must say it was challenging, because I have done strength training in months. In the beginning I was doing it 4 times a week, but after I had a injury I had to put it on hold and have physical therapy. It was a good session, and I'm looking forward to going back tomorrow night. I will be doing Boot Camp classes 3 days a week. I signed up for 3 month classes. I will be taking a before pictures and measurements to compare. The trainer was very impress with my endurance and said I did a very excellent job today. I just need the extra guided to get me back in the right direction, and the extra money I must say will be worth it. I usually go all out for others, but not myself. Well, I made that change and that commitment to myself. Keep it moving! Keep on losing!

More Changes

Thursday, June 12, 2014

I'm so excited for my daughter. She called me yesterday after visiting this gym. She had a membership before where my son and I are members, but she didn't feel comfortable at all. One day we all were at the gym and I was doing strength training, and after she did some cardio she came over to where I was with tears in her eyes. Soon after that she left and cancelled her membership. She absolutely hated there. But, at this location is small and not overwhelming. I went to visit the location this morning. The minute that I step in I know it was the right fit for her. They offer Boot Camp classes, and I made a promise to her; when she is ready to get fit I will be there right with her. So, we will be starting our Boot Camp classes before this month ends. I was talking and asking the owner lots of questions. And, come to find out not only is he a former Body Building, but a amputee as well. The vive is great at this gym. I can't wait to she my daughter body take shape into a even more beauty young lady. Keep it moving! Keep on losing!
