Bootcamp Day 8

Today was an emotional day. Good thing I had bootcamp to look forward too. It was another intense workout. We ran, no we jogged around the block carrying a big weighted ball. Then we ran stairs. Stairs are the hardest for me because going down scares me. Then we did a lot of work with tires. Oh and as always we ended with a 1:45 minute plank. 
:-) anyone living in the Santa Maria area should give the bootcamp at Griffin Fitness a try. Just do it. Seriously worth it. 

Bootcamp Day 7

Well more weights. I like lifting weights. I feel powerful. Today we used two sets of weights, 5 and 8 lbs. I ended up using 8lbs most of the time. It was a crazy workout but pushed through. At the end we did a 1:40 plank. Killer! 

Bootcamp Day 6

So I was not feeling it. It could have been just tired from the crazy weekend or being lazy from being on vacation. 
We did arm work with weights. I used 8 lbs cuz my sister used my 5s. We also did more ab work. Seriously pushed myself. There was this one move that was killer. It was a push-up variation. So you went down, paused, lay on the floor, then push yourself up. Let's just say moddy push-ups didn't even help me.

Bootcamp Day 5

Thursday was such a long time ago. All I remember thinking is how all the lunges and squats were going to make me sore. I signed up to do some roofing. Ladders that's it ladders. 
On a side note I want to be an action actor. Look at these men. Still kicking butt.

Bootcamp Day 4

Today we did sprints, high knees and grapevine shuffles as a warm up. There were a few girls that were late so we had to keep going. Then after we did jumping moves. It's super hard but it helps me build endurance. 
I think it is going pretty well. I would totally go for an AM class but this one is only a month long.

Bootcamp Day 3

We jogged around the block as a warmup. I believe we did 2 laps. The only thing was we had to stay in a line and pass this log overhead. Then we did workouts with tires. Guess who had the biggest tire. My shoulders and neck are kind of in a knot. It was a good workout although different from anything I've ever done.

Bootcamp Day 2

I was super sore from the day before. We did insanity type exercises which at first I was doing good but by the end I couldn't move. It's 3 days later and my muscles still ache. The last thing we did was a minute plank. Really challenged myself to hold it. 
I couldn't run on Friday as I planned because I was so tired but got it in on Saturday. 
I go again tomorrow so let's see what is in store for us.

Bootcamp Day 1

A friend of mine recently opened up a fitness studio. In support I went to his grand opening. Since I haven't had a car all I could do was check things out. However my sister wanted to start working out so we signed up for a month long bootcamp.

The first day the instructor was late so Russ, the owner had us start with a Tabata type workout. At first it was easy and by the 4th rep I was losing my strength. Then the Mayra showed up and we began bootcamp. Day 1 consisted of measurements. We took our weight and did a bunch of 1 minute exercises then ran stairs. 

The next day I woke up and was feeling fine. However as the day went forth the sore spots started appearing. 
I knew I had to go to class at the end if the day. 

The instructor says we can modify things but I go all out... Until I can't. It is only a month long so I figure gotta put in the work. Stay tune for a post about day 2.

Sick and Tired

You know when you are overweight and you come to a point when you are sick and tired of being sick and tired.  Then you start working out and eat better and over time you are feeling amazing.

Well what if you are sick and tried of life? Seriously I don't think we were designed to sit behind a desk for 8 hours a day and then go home.  No I am not suicidal and going on a life diet. 

I am what you would call a complainer.  I like things to go a certain way and if I don't get my way I complain. Sometimes I hear myself talk and I just want to punch myself. 

So I am taking a timeout to figure out what my plan is.  Maybe I will drive myself insane by *blah blah blahing*

If I didn't care about incurring more debt I would just hop a plane to Ireland for two week and hang out on a cliff drinking and staring at the ocean. Roll down the hill, face plant in manure, and run in the cold water to wash it all off.

But in all seriousness I had a plan; and it turns out you can only control so much of the plan.  Maybe I am just having a midlife crisis....women get those too right....and yeah I don't think I will make it past 60.

Let's see what do they do..... they go and buy a red fast sports car, get divorced and find a 24 year old, dye their hair, and play golf. 

Well for sure more blogging.  My doctor says I need to journal for my health.
