It has been four weeks since I have started my bootcamp classes. For the most part, I think it’s pretty awesome. I am constantly sore; back, arms, butt, abs, chest, everything! It’s nice being sore, it means that I have been working hard.
I have been able to stay pretty consistent with my days. I have been going Mondays through Wednesdays and have even picked up drop-in volleyball on Thursdays. Fridays have been sort of my “day off” and I try to go running on the weekends, which unfortunately has only been once on average for the weekends. But basically I’m working out five times a week and I feel pretty good about it.
I really am enjoying volleyball. I have only been once, but it was seriously the most fun working out I have had in a long time. I thought I was really going to suck at it since it’s been quite a few years since I have even touched a volleyball, but you know what? I’ve still got it! I can still pass, I can still set, and I can even hit! Serving, that’s a little bit of a different story, but for the most part, I can still play.
My bootcamp instructor, Jeff, asked me last week to come in for a diagnostics test. He took my weight, measurements, and BMI. The numbers were a little higher than I was hoping, but it just means I will have some pretty awesome results within a year…right? Along with that, he then asked me about my goals and my diet. Oh gosh. My diet. Okay, if you know me, you know I love to eat. I eat all the freakin’ time (no wonder I’m not in the best shape), but for the most part, I actually do know what’s good for me and what’s bad for me. I just choose to eat the bad things…too often. Oops. So Jeff asked me to keep a food log and…yeah…so I came back this week and gave it to him to look at and I didn’t do as bad as I thought, but not great either. He now wants me to be on the Paleo’s diet. It’s not too bad. Mostly fruits, veggies, proteins with a few good fats thrown in. I remember a doctor once told me, “If God didn’t make it, don’t eat it.”
I’m making changes in my life. And I’m not going to go into great detail, but I’m also working on some personal things other than fitness and health. I want to be better, so that takes change.
