I’ve signed up for my 3rd round of Best Body Bootcamp! It started yesterday and so far I’ve done a run and done the first strength workout. Go me!
Pre-kids, I did a weight workout 3 days per week in the gym at my office. My staff knew they could find me there pretty much every day at 11:00am. (The other two days I’d do an easy cardio – I wanted a workout but not the “red face that won’t quit” look.) Once Jones came along, I needed to run for the endorphins. It was also a quick and easy workout I could do with him in the stroller or in the basement while he napped. It’s been almost 12 years since I had a regular strength routine.
Best Body Bootcamp is awesome because I don’t have to think. I just do it. Moves are planned for me, reps are recommended, heck, she even has a video for us to watch to see how to do them correctly. In the two rounds I’ve completed so far, I have yet to have a problem doing all the exercises with the small amount of space and equipment in my basement. I also love that there is a Facebook group for support. I’ve squeezed in a number of workouts in the past just so I can participate in roll call. (Don’t worry, I still take rest days. We all know I love my rest days.)
What I have had trouble with so far is completing the program. The first session I did great until near the end when life got in the way. The second session I missed out on some middle weeks because we were on vacation. Now, I did manage to stay on track with my goals and stayed active, but I missed a fair number of strength workouts.
So, my big goal this time? Hit every.single.strength workout. My reward? Something new from Athleta or Skirt Sports.
