I’m going to regret this in the coming days.
I did two workouts today on Saturday.
My friend from work invited me and the girls to a free workout from 9-11. The first hour was Zumba the second hour was bootcamp.
Yeah I know…
But it’s a free workout and because ALL of the girls agreed to go, I figured, I’ll commit.
Well low and behold only the friend who invited me showed.
The first hour wasn’t difficult because I know how to Zumba. The biggest thing was learning the sequences and the instructor made the moves more fun than difficult so I found that part easy. I even learned a few twerking moves! lol
The second hour I cursed more than I have probably cursed all week. Why why why did I sign up for this???? Somehow I was able to make it thru the burpees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, jumping lunges, wall sits and suicides oh and planks, lets not forget all of the planks!!! And I don’t run…so imagine my surprise at how much running was involved. I have no desire to do jumping jacks anytime soon either.
But by the end…I was proud of myself for sticking it out. I knew that I could never go into the Armed Forces for one reason and one reason only: Boot Camp. Yeah Aria doesn’t get down with being yelled at. I almost had a Biggest Loser moment there at the end…but I kept myself from hurling thankfully.
I also couldn’t quit because there was a heavier girl there who wasn’t quitting. I said to myself, if she can hang I can hang. I modified what I needed to modify. But I refused to quit. I won’t be signing up for anybody’s bootcamp anytime soon. I definitely need to be in better shape and then we’ll see.
At the end of the day I’m glad I got a lot of calories burned. I pushed past my comfort zones. And I ran and I was able to keep up. Guess that just killed all of my excuses I made in high school for not running. Smh.
