Fitness Goals

1 Apr

Today was the last day of my 21-day boot camp. This was a half hour class that was offered at my work during lunch. We were also supposed to work out on the weekends to reach the target 21 days of working out in a row.

Was I able to do it? For the most part, yes.

I took 4 of the 21 days off to rest. I personally don’t feel that it’s good for your body to not have at least one rest day per week. So, I took what was necessary for me and my body. The purpose of the 21 days was to build a habit. I think it worked because I am kind of sad that there is no boot camp class tomorrow. I will miss the structured class with others around for motivation. I am one that needs that extra umph from a motivating instructor and other class members. I am looking for other work outs to replace the class. My friend and I are going to try to go for a jog during our lunch breaks now. I hate running, but it’s something. And, I need to stay active. Also, I am going to go for a bike ride next week during my lunch break. I haven’t ridden in forever, so I will have to ease back into it, but I’m excited!

As for progress from boot camp, I took some before and after pictures, but there isn’t much to see, so I won’t be posting them. My abs have a tiny bit more definition and my legs definitely feel stronger, but I will have to continue on with my fitness goals to see some real results. My goals are to feel better and have more energy, most importantly, and I would also like to gain more muscle. Unfortunately, I re-injured my right shoulder on the 4th day of the boot camp class, so I was unable to do many of the arm exercises. I am working on healing it again so I can ease into strengthening it and building muscle in my arms.

I have never been one for working out much, but now is the time. I’m about to be chasing a crazy little boy around all the time! He needs a mommy who can keep up and play with him. 🙂
