So I stumbled into Boot Camp…

I am tired of my morning workouts at home.  I bought a BUNCH of DVDs on sale at the first of the year and they are great.  But I’m not motivated to do them anymore.  I have been bored, which means I haven’t been working out in the mornings.

So I decided to try going to the gym.  This takes a bit more planning (taking a bag to get ready for work at the gym, sleeping in my workout clothes, packing lunch the night before)….but I am enjoying it.

On Monday, I was planning on doing some treadmill running and then some weights.  Well, I left my headphones at home…and there was NO WAY I was going to make it through a run without listening to music or a podcast.  So I stumbled into the boot camp class.

It. Was. Awesome.

If you would have told me a few years ago that I would get up at 4:30, drive to the gym, and workout for an hour before work, and like it, I would have laughed in your face. But I totally did!

The first morning, it was like Jillian Michaels Live.  We did one minute of weights, and then ran a lap around the track.  By the end of the class, we had run a mile…did about 25 minutes of weights, 10 minutes of abs, and stretched.  I LOVED it.

This morning was a bit tougher.  It was a circuit that was more “on your own.”  Sure, we were all working out together, but you could go at your own pace.  A little more mental and a LOT harder physically. But I like it.  I like the challenge. 

I’m planning on hitting boot camp up a couple times a week.  They offer it three mornings a week…but I might save Fridays for running only.  I dunno.  Or I might get addicted and go three times a week.  Not like its bad for me!

So yeah. I stumbled into boot camp and fell in love.  Who woulda thunk it?


  1. You GO GIRL! So proud of you and all you are accomplishing for your health!!! I just wish some of your exercise addiction would rub off on me! ***JUST A LITTLE!!!*** (wink)

    You’ll be teaching that class before you know it!!! Wahoo!

  2. You go girl!!

  3. Was the class at Marvin Altman? My friend Sarah teaches a morning bootcamp class there on Mondays and Wednesdays. I go to the bootcamp class at lunch. LOVE IT!!!

    • Yup! That’s the one! I am LOVING it! I teach Zumba there in the evenings…come by sometime! I would love to know who this is…. 🙂

    • My name is Misty. I don’t have a blog, just a blog stalker 🙂 I keep telling myself I’m going to start a blog for just journaling life. I stumbled across your blog through Kelly’s Korner. I was excited to find a local gal to follow. You’ve given me many ideas where to eat. And I also had a bad experience with Hank’s. Hope you finally got that resolved. Unfortunately I cannot work out in the evenings. I have 2 kiddos at home. With hubby’s schedule and school activities for my son (since when do 2nd graders have so many activities?!?!), evenings just don’t work for me. So, I have to go at lunch time. I told Sarah that you blogged about her class. She’s going to check it out 🙂

    • Well hello there Misty! 🙂 Thanks for following! Yeah, I have to workout because we love to eat! ha! Well, if you ever get a free night…I’d love to meet you! 🙂 Thanks for reading!

    • Hey Brittney!!
      My gf, Miss Anonymous, just texted me and was like I think this girl is blogging about you!! HAHA!! So, glad it’s all positive..I was scared at first!
      Happy you’ve joined our rise & shine group!!
      🙂 Sarah

    • And we finally resolved with Hanks. The whole situation makes me so mad I can’t even write about it without raising my blood pressure…so I just let it go. ha!

    • Hey Sarah! Glad to have found you! OF COURSE it was all positive! 🙂 You kicked my butt in the best way! 🙂 Thanks!

    • Yeah..I’m glad!! Remember I won’t be there Friday so I’ll see you Monday! Have a great weekend 🙂
