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?
