A minor meltdown and an amazing workout.

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I woke up yesterday feeling angry and over it - Day 4 of Fat Camp and I was pissed at every one and probably also feeling the affects of a few days with out ciggies.

Did our 45 minute high intensity walk at 7:00 a.m., had breakfast and then met at 8:30 for our challenge - I was NOT in the mood so when we were told 7 of us had to complete the following in 90 minutes - not EACH but as a group e.g. around 110 push ups each on average:

800 pushups
800 step ups
800 sit ups
30 circuits of the park - walk or run

plus a few other things

SO when I heard that I just about lost it and decided to start on situps first and get some out of the way. The harder I worked the more upset I was getting so when I starting to do my walk around the park circuits I had tears and sweat streaming down my face and the harder I pushed the harder I was crying.

I guess 4 hours a day of exercising as taking its toll and emotionally I was hitting the wall - my "inner" just wanted to be at home on the couch and doing ANYTHING but this!

I stopped and had the rest of the day off apart from some stretching and tai chi and woke up this morning much better but still a LITTLE tense and was hoping it would disappear, which it did by the end of our morning walk.

After that we had boxing at the beach and then had to stand in a tidal pool up to our waists and box and balance with partners and THEN had to do 20 lunges, walk through the tidal pool to the other side, do 19 star jumps, walk back through the waist high water, 18 lunges, walk back get the idea!

Morning tea and then a modified game of basket ball. About 3/4 of the way through I had to stop to puke...I didn't quite have to but got close BUT was really proud of myself for pushing through to the end.

Almost 1/4 of the way through and just starting to really enjoy it!

P.S. I am trying to get around and read my awesome Sparkfriends blogs but time is kind of tight until our free day on Sunday:)
