It’s been almost 4 weeks since I started BootyCamp, and I am loving it! I always leave camp feeling lighter and more clear-headed than when I went in, even if my legs and arms feel as heavy as lead. You may remember that I was particularly worn our after my first session, but it’s slowly getting better every time I go. I can do more push-ups than I could before, and I can hold a squat for at least a minute now! I have noticed a small difference in my body, (this may be TMI!) including feeling perkier in the boobs, and a definite enhancement in the booty area. I find myself looking forward to my next session, and even wishing that there were more sessions per week so I could go more often! I really like the group atmosphere, everyone gives high-fives and cheers each other on.
Now if you were to say “You can’t possibly love everything about it!” you would be correct. What don’t I love about BootyCamp? Burpees. Burpees = suck and hate. If you’ve ever done one, you will know that you’re moving your body down to the ground and back up very rapidly. Well, moving 6’1” of person down to the floor and back takes a bit of time, and moving up and down that quickly tends to make me feel very light headed and nauseated. Thank goodness we haven’t done that many so far, but I plan on asking our instructor Raluca for an alternative to burpees at tomorrow’s class.
Speaking of tomorrow’s class, I’m doing 2 in a row to make up for the session I missed last Monday. If you don’t hear from me by Tuesday, send Gatorade and a wheelchair ok?
