First Day of Boot Camp

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Feeling rather productive and inspired today, which is always good. I picked up some fitness equipment: a balance ball, a medicine ball, some resistance bands, and a jump rope. Cleaned out my work locker and car and got rid of all the junk food and replaced all the junk with healthy snacks.

Despite my depressing BEFORE pics, I'm totally ready to do this! My partner and my friends has been really supportive of the idea of me losing weight, which helps.

I would write more, but I'm running out of steam. All the errands plus 8 hours of work, an organizing meeting in the am, and then working out has me wanting to relax. The workout kicked my ass, which made me realize how out of shape I am. I thought, 10 minutes ain't nothing and tried to stay high intensity but it just wasn't happening.

Oh well, gotta start somewhere, right?

Woah, I finished. Yeah!

    Thanks for the words of encouragement!

    I too love ab work with the ball. It really makes you feel it.

    Good luck with your gym membership! I'm sure you'll do well!

    I am right with you!! i am afraid of the more intense work outs at the gym! i just signed up for the 2 week free trial today....so here i go!

    You are doing such great things to clean out your car and work locker AND replace with healthy snacks!

    The fitness equipment sounds so nice! i wish i could use the bands, but am allergic. I LOVE my exercise ball:) Abs are so much easier on the thing, but the stomach muscles (and all around my back) are being worked out so much better than any floor abs i've ever done. And i had googled ab exercises to find the most and least effective, which confirms what i am feeling in my tummy:)

    my friend just told me that abs are the one muscle group you can't overwork. i started doing 3 reps, this week every day, and am up to 6 reps. i love being aware of those muscles, as this is a new feeling to me.
