I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this at all on here, but three weeks ago, I started a bootcamp challenge. The challenge includes (3) one-hour crossfit classes per week and a paleo diet (no dairy, soy, wheat, sugar… Aka none of the good stuff).
I was really dreading the workouts because a) duh. B) I’m not the cross fit / weight lifting type (I have never lifted weights prior to my class) and C) it felt like a huge time commitment.
Well, let me say that I’ve been absolutely loving it. I’m signed up with my neighbor and it’s just become a fun little escape (during the peak of nighttime craziness) that feels great!
The diet… It’s fine. I can’t eat dairy or soy anyway because of Henry, so it’s not a huge change. I’ve cheated maybe 3 very small times (small bowl of cereal in almond milk, a bite of bread). However, I didn’t give up coffee or wine. That’s just nonsense.
All in all, I’ve dropped 7 lbs and am way more muscular than when I started. Still a ways to go, but I’m feeling good! Most importantly, it’s a little less frustrating getting dressed every day.
I would love to be able to do this. I’d have to hire a babysitter though and that is not cost effective. I have been working out at home but it’s much less Motivating!
I just suck at working out at home. What do you do?? I need ideas!
Jillian Michaels circuit training. Warm up and 6 circuits. I usually make it to circuit 3 and want to die. I also Zumba dance in
My living room. Completely unmotivated though.
That’s a good idea! I used to do JM… I should try again. But ugh I know. So hard to get motivated in the house. I think at least 30-40% of the fun of my classes is just getting to leave the house and be a grown up (and leave my title of momma at home for an hour).
For sure!!!! And it’s slightly embarrassing to leave a class so you stay for the whole hour. At home…so many distractions!
