Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Thank you, bed head.

Have you ever woken up in the morning and thought, “Dang girl, you lookin’ good!” ¬†I’m rocking some serious bed head and some how it’s working for me. Who needs a brush, flat-iron or blow dryer when every morning we wake to the magical creation of hair that’s flattened in some places, bushy in others, maybe a few kinks for good measure. Natures miracle, if you ask me.

Good news! I just signed up for another month of boot camp. I’ve been thinking seriously about it for the last few days and decided to go for it. It’s such a hard decision because booty is over 20o bucks per month but it makes me feel really good. To me, confidence is priceless. That and I’m expecting a small tax return so in my twisted brain it all makes sense.

These are some of the perks listed on the Ultimate Boot camp website.

Results-driven workouts with a major calorie burn (500-700 calories) —I’ve been wearing my heart rate monitor and it reads anywhere between 520 calories to 650. That’s freaking kick ass.

Tone and tighten with a wide variety of full-body muscle conditioning exercise –I didn’t take any measurements prior to starting so I’m unsure about any changes. Maybe after month two I’ll see a difference. I feel better though.

Motivating Trainers will push you to the next level –Part of the reason why I signed up is because the same trainers that taught us this month are teaching next class. I really enjoyed both of them. I’ve had some not so fabulous trainers at times but John and Craig are the shit.

Stay accountable with the non-intimidating group environment –When people hear boot camp they think hardcore, scream in your face workout. This is not at all the case. The trainers push us in a manner that’s helpful not hurtful.

Pretty cool, right? Gotta run and finish up some last-minute edits before class. Three more weeks of  graduate school and I am done FOREVER!!
