Day-One of Bootcamp Challenge is a Victory!

Sunday, January 09, 2011

I joined the 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge today because I thought some accountability would be good for me. Boy, did it get the ball rolling.

Today's challenge was to do a 10-minute cardio video. When I got dressed this morning, I dressed in my workout clothes to make it especially easy to get my workout in. I did the video and it was more challenging than I'd expected, but I felt energized when I finished. Why stop there? I got a new beginning belly dancing video for Christmas that I haven't looked at yet, so I popped it in the DVR player and practiced basic belly dancing moves for over 30 minutes. How challenging! Each exercise works a particular group of muscles in isolation. I can already tell that I'll be at least a little sore tomorrow, because I exercised muscles that haven't been used for a long time. But it was fun and challenging and I was sweating and I felt REALLY GOOD! I exercised, I completed my challenge for the day, and enjoyed it. What a sense of accomplishment. So, why stop there?

I tracked everything I ate today. That's saying something, because I haven't tracked consistently for a while. Two down, what else can I do?

This evening I was feeling munchy. I crocheted for a while, then I made some Good Earth tea, which I'm sipping right now. My craving have subsided.

All in all, today feels like a complete victory!

    You can do it! Keep on keeping on! Let's challenge each other on something...maybe track food consistently from Monday 1/10-Sunday 1/16? What do you think? Other ideas? I wanted to do the 28 day challenge, but I can't do the videos on dial up.
