And what a grueling week this has been. I am sore I am in pain. I need to find some more sleep in my day... I could not be happier.
Today's fun filled activities involved a lot of upper body exercises along with some bicep work. Also plenty of running and running and more running. MOST exercises involved animal names. Inch worms, bear crawls, and crab walks. Yeah I think I hate worms and bears and crabs.
When I was a yungin' I hurt my right wrist. I'm not sure what happened but I have a small scar and I have some limited flexibility. I can use it most of the time but my wrist gets tired. And the crab walk definitely takes it's toll on my wrist. I'll survive but I think I will make a point of wrapping that wrist in the future.
I see a little progress in myself everyday. My legs truly hurt but they hurt a little less everyday. I also need to work on core exercises. Exercises that work the muscles in our lower torso, abs and obligues and lower back. I admit I am week in this department. I will add some additional ab work to my day outside of Boot Camp to improve my core and get that 2 pack... and then maybe a 4 and then... I can dream of a 6...na I'm not going there...YET!!!
There is an optional workout Saturday mornings at the late hour of 830. Weekends are homework days. I have not decided if I'll go to Boot Camp Saturday or do my normal upper body routine at the gym. If I go in the morning I will move my upper body routine to Sunday.
The food plan is going well. However, I do not agree with some of the basic ideas that the Instructors are taught. Iceberg lettuce seems to be hated. And you know Iceberg has nutritional value but it also has no calories. Well there are 15 to 20 in a 1/4 wedge. Some things I eat are for filler. So I won't be hungry. I do feel that my knowledge of food and nutritional values makes me much better in tuned that the average camper. I have to remind most people that lettuce in general has little value. Iceberg, Romain, Red Leaf--- Very little value. It's a filler. I eat it to keep from being overly hungry. Green beans are pretty empty as well.
I'll let you know what I decide about Saturday's workout.
Thanks for your support.
