Boot Camp

Adam and I decided to sign up for boot camp this summer at the local gym. Holy schmoley, let me say we did NOT belong there but we kept going back and I don’t know why. Well, I do….because we paid. ha ha

I got lapped running bleachers one day. Lapped. She had us doing things that I’ve never heard of but I think are probably common everyday moves for most people. Adam and I have been hibernating for too long I guess. Mountain climbers, skaters, jump squats, jump lunges, jump (well if you can do it while jumping you just should, okay), pulling one another (literally),  burpees (well I call them  mudruckers….not sure why but that is the only way I remember them), oh and the plank. By golly…..that is THE THING TO DO! Don’t you dare forget the plank. And, I will say at first there was no planking happening in this body but now there is…..for almost two minutes straight. Phew. Each class ended with 100 sit-ups of different types. She alternates in increments of 10-20 of each type and by the time I hit 100, well, nevermind.

Sadly, after each 45 minute session I was so full of nausea and gross fatigue that all I could do was go home and barely make it into bed and that is it. For the entire first week I had to log-roll to get out of bed!

All I can say is she is absolutely amazing. In incredible shape. AND, I love the quote she put on the back of our shirts because it is perfect:

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”

  1. uhhhh, yeah…..I’ll mention it to him (and you should, too) but honestly I think we are both so glad it is over and that we are still alive!!!! I am so serious about that comment, too. Very very sad. I think we had several near death experiences each time!!!!

  2. Well, I for one am totally impressed. I just canNOT get into gym type exercise, even though it would do me good, no doubt. How great that you did it together and stuck with it!
