started Bootcamp

Recommended Posts

Today was my first day of bootcamp. We meet at the local beach/track and field at 5:30 am and run, push up sit up and kettle ball our way into shape. I have always kept active (sort of) I am always doing yoga or pilates or dancing... I don't think I have run around a track though in 18 years (OMG)

I am proud to say I lasted the 12 mintues required of us today, although I couldn't do a sit up to save my life. One of my team mates coudn't believe it. She kept saying "what do you mean you didn't do any?? Not even one?? Well I can't mark that" I felt like crying, but i kept it together and said, "well I know what I need to work on" and "I can only get better from here" SHe wasn't very supportive. I do have to say that I could crunch my way into tomorrow, just not full sit up. My goal is to be able to do one by the end of the week. And maybe by the end of the camp I can keep up with them.

Just though I would share and see how others are doing at their exercise programs?

Is ther one thing that you can't do no matter how hard you try?

Good for you! What always got me when I did a bootcamp was continuous push ups. No matter how string I get I eventually have to drop down to "girl push ups".

 

Don't you just love those unsupportive people? I will bet money that you will be able to out sit-up her by the end.

Good for you!! Full situps get easier if you practice soon you'll be doing them better than that unsupporative girl.

I really want to try bootcamp but I am just not that dedicated to working out and I'm kinda lazy but I work 2 jobs one of which is very physical so that might be wht I just want to lay on the couch when get home.

Bootcamp words to live by "IF YOU THINK YOU'RE STRONG YOU'LL BE STRONG"

 

It's more mental than anything. Take the pain and fight it, sometimes getting angry helps. Don't be shy "Grunt, scream, cry...whatever gets you though it"

 

You'll find everytime you do another class you'll be able to do a little more and last a little longer!!!

 

Good Luck and Don't Give Up!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
