First off--let me start by saying I LOVE THIS SITE!! I signed-up about 2 years ago, but never reallly took full advantage of what all SparkPeople has to offer...my mistake. I used to belong to another site, but the challenge wasn't there anymore, and the cost/month was getting expensive.
This morning I decieded to work out before I went to work (let me say I need to get up at 3:45 am to be semi-awake and dressed by 4am to do this...then into the shower by 4:30am). UUUUGGGGHHHH...that alarm goes off and I don't wanna get up. I am all about exercise dvd's--I teach a varity of classes for the Y, so I am always looking for new ideas, so this morning I tried the Sparkpeople 28 Day Bootcamp 30 minute challenge. Coach Nicole looks so serene--how difficult could this REALLY be???? OMG---since I have kettlebells (doesn't everyone??), and my weights were downstairs, I went straight kettlebell on this morning. I can do this---I do these moves all the time in class-right??? W R O N G !!. Granted--this was the 1st time I tried this dvd--never really previewe, but I actually had do some of the moves without weight!!
I love the challenge of new classes and instructors--but the thing I love the MOST is when a class/instrucotor kicks my butt and mentally and physically humbles me back to where I started as a participant in a class--a newbie--awestruck by what I accomplished, Thank you Coach Nicole!
