On boot camp and goals

Posted March 21st, 2007 under Healthy me, Life by MicheleP.

I continue to work out with Chip two mornings (and by mornings, I do mean mornings… we meet at 5 AM… yes, I am a little crazy) a week. In addition to personal training, he offers a group class on Saturday mornings (thankfully at a more respectable time of 8 AM). I’ve declined his invitation to class each week but last week decided to give it a try.

He doesn’t have a name for the class, but I do now… Boot Camp. Exercises such as “suicides”, “prisoner squats”, “fire drills”, etc filled the morning. And since you are working out with other people, you have that whole peer pressure thing – which was complicated by the fact that I was one of the youngest in the class and was clearly outmatched by my “peers”. How sad is it that a 50 year old woman can outrun me in line drills? Very sad indeed.

But – on a positive note, I told myself that once I lost 10 pounds I would treat myself to new workout clothes – guess who is going shopping this weekend? :)
