Boot Camp Day 1
I am so blessed that there is a FREE boot camp offered at my church for the next two weeks. Five days a week! I am so lucky because we just are not in a financial position to be joining a gym (just yet...;o) I went this morning for 3 hours. We did regular stretching, we wogged around our gym, played volleyball, used an exercise ball (for the first time ever!), got weighed in, measured, and ended with yoga... and felt so loved while doing all of these things.
I didn't think I would ever do yoga again after a mishap at a yoga class in my early twenties....(yoga class was such a 'gas'...i am still embarrassed) But I did, and I liked it. I think what I like about this class so much is that it encompasses a lot of different elements, and keeps you busy. It did not feel like we were there for three hours, that is for sure!
Sooo...it's time to be accountable. I weighed 221.8lbs today when I went in. My measurments were taken of the following areas:
(I will post them later tonight along with a "before" picture!)
I was able to do 37 crunches in a minute
I was able to do 31 wall push ups
It's not easy to see those numbers. It's not easy to realize that I have had so much time to make this "weight" thing right. But I can't worry about that anymore. My kids deserve to have me at their 30th birthday parties. Something that my parents will not able to do for me in February. I would love to be under 200 for my birthday, but that is not going to happen for me I am sure. But 210 by 2/10 might!
If you too, are on a journey of your own, whether it be for weight loss or financial, I hope that you are able to find something that works for you to get through. I am praying that this boot camp will give me the "push" go get over the 33lb weight loss that I have had since I had my son in June of 09. I just can't do anymore on my own.
