Boot Camp

Well, my neighbor, Carlos, owns a gym where he works with athletes on speed and agility.  He mentioned a while back about this class that he was teaching and I finally got the nerve up to go (I think it is called CoreFit 101, not boot camp, but that's kind of the idea).

I think it was my body pinching that occurred recently....saw that I have way too much fat and way too much weight to lose.  Seeing those numbers in print and on paper is a powerful thing.  The ladies that I've been meeting with who are losing weight had a great conversation last week and I know that what is going to help is some weight training in addition to the cardio.  I have not lifted or worked with weights in years.  I'm tired right now, but I know that I am going to be sore tomorrow or later tonight.

So, it was an hour class at 5:30 this morning.  We warmed up going back and forth across the gym...then used that big ball to do some reps with dumb bells.  After that there were some stations that included the elliptical, treadmill, bike, something for my legs, something for arms and then a weighted hammer that I swung around while standing on a huge tire....almost fell, but it was fun.  After that we moved to the floor with medicine balls for ab work.  What a crazy morning....needless to say, I have gotten nothing done today!  (cake baked, emptied dishwasher, made and ate lunch, and thought about laundry)

Anyway, if you are interested in the class, I put the link below.  I believe that you can try it for free.  I am right now....it's great...not sure what results I will have, but will let you know.
