Booty Camp Day One - Check!

So I have to be honest with you all.....

Booty camp
I had been looking forward to this for so long and it was definitely a hit!! I was SO glad to finally be able to meet some of the lovely Blogger ladies, who are nothing short of AMAZING!

I knew going into this I was not going to be able to keep up with a lot of the cardio stuffs, however I did my best even though my lungs felt like they were bursting out of my chest!! When we got into more of the strength moves I was feeling a little better. There is just a LOT of room for improvement (I honestly just spelled that as 'emprovement' btw....oh my) on the cardio side of things, which I will work up to in this 8 weeks.

There were TONNES of people in this class. The instructor was told there would be maybe 9 people but there were about 25ish people in the class. Holy moly!! I was happy to see a big turnout though!!

Most of the workout was done in the sand, minus some of the running we did, which proved to be challenging.. well...more awkward than anything. It's hard to keep your balance in the sand but it's a nice change of pace. It was nice getting down to the nitty gritty though. Going into today I'd hoped for the rain that we were having to continue so we could get REALLY dirty, but instead the sun came out for a 1/2hr or so while we were doing the cardio. Damn you sun!! lol I think we'll all be finding sand in unmentionable places for a while...ewww... just kidding btw! Hahah

After the workout we enjoyed some of Farmgirls' DELICIOUS strawberries!! MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmm sooo good!

Once the class was over we did the fitness assessment and got our weight taken and measurements done. Sure enough, I plugged in the numbers on their website and I have about 35.6% body fat and I am obese. go me!

I am very curious to see what, if anything, changes for me when we take our measurements again at week four...then eight.

I am sure I have left out tonnes of awesome details but I am pooped right now so I'll let the other girls fill ya in!

For now I leave you with some eye candy:

At home, enjoying a Protein packed Ripped Berry Booster Juice (I just checked and its calorie packed also...funnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.... dot dot dot....)

Edit - I should mention that as soon as I got home and told Dave about Booty Camp, he went straight to the gym in his hotel for an hr's workout. Go Dave!! He'd even mentioned *walking/running* while I take my bike out. How cool is that!?

Awwww . . . you look cute! So awsome that you have a great class to take - having to just be on the cardio machines all the time gets so old so fast. :-)
