At a loss for a topic this week I’m going to bore you with….wait for it….me. Total yawner I know right? Feel free to stop reading right now promise I won’t look. ;)
I’ve recently begun attending a womens Bootcamp. What and why?
Why: Because it was a great deal I found on offer. $20 for 20 classes (and yes I had to call and ensure it wasn’t a scam) Lol But it’s the REAL deal alright. Just ask my body anywhere from below my eyebrows. It all hurts, but the GOOD hurt.
What: It’s circuit training essentially, but with a twist. We get to drag tires, flip tires, climb ladders, and all kinds of ‘fun’ stuff. The one thing I’ve noticed about this particular camp that is different from anything else I’ve done is that there is no curve to the training. Most places start easy, build up, and slow down. His just gets harder. Did you do sprints with squats at every station for 30secs? Now it’s a minute. Did you do it for a minute? Now it’s a minute with 10lbs of weight. That sort of thing.
After 3 classes I still look alot like this (not really me but easily could be);
But I FEEL like this (definitely not me);
The most valuable thing of all is that I’m learning good things I do later on my own at home. That is always the best part of any class. Next week I’m taking a hot yoga class (hot cause they crank the heat to add misery) Personally I’ve never been a fan of yoga, I’m a hockey girl dammit! I always thought of yoga as sissy new-age crap. Um, ya, I’m a freaking idiot. You can say it. This is an 83 year old woman I would never want to try and steal a purse from…just sayin’. *runs to yoga class*
I have two new addicions to share with you!
One is motivational fitness pictures with quotes. I post at least one a day on my FB page. It REALLY works to do this. Start the habit yourselves. If you post it, you must do it, right? It adds accountability and keeps me going. Here’s a couple of my favs. :)
The second one is Pinterest. Omigod I love this site! (once I figured out how to use it, TY Shannon!). It’s free, and so awesome! Now whenever I’m surfing and see things I like, books, clothes, paint and décor, I just click the ‘pin it’ button and add it to a board. I’m planning on finishing our basement, I have a whole board full of things that inspire me, and it’s also where I keep all these cool fitness posters that I find. Find something on Etsy you like? Pin it. Check this site out, you’ll love it I swear!
HOT TIP: Join lots of deal sites like Groupon, Dealfind, Kijiji deals, Social Network etc, you just never know what you’ll find! Just be sure to call the ACTUAL companies/stores to verify, and don’t forget to read the fine print!
I hope you found something here today to take away with you, thank you for stopping in! :)
