Today kicks off Best Body Bootcamp, and I’m both excited and scared.
As my fit test showed, it’s been a long time since I did any strength training — I was going to the gym right up until I went into labor with BabyBug, but that’s nearly six months ago. And I see it in my squishy muscles and I feel it in my wall squats (more like wall sink to the floor).
I have pretty reasonable goals for this project. First of all, as much as I’d like to stick to the schedule 100%, I will need to move some things around because of my schedule (and to Tina’s credit, the Bootcamp completely supports that). Secondly, timing sucks and my gym membership is ending this month and I’m not renewing it. So I’m going to be working with equipment I have at home. And third, I’m not looking to lose weight.
That’s kind of a big statement, and the first time I’ve been able to say that in a few years. I’m not at my lowest weight, marked back in my Weight Watchers days, but I am close. That’s probably a testament to the fact that I am breastfeeding, I am back to running, and I have followed a relatively clean diet since having a baby.
However, I’m at my lowest fitness in a long time. And I miss looking and feeling strong.
So, my goals are to get back into a strength training routine, and to learn a few new moves that I can do at home. I’d like to stay on track and be accountable, as much as I can with my new lifestyle. And I’m hoping to bond with my fellow campers, and find even more inspiration in our community.
WISH ME LUCK!
