How I'm Doing So Far

what have i done?!?

I just signed up for a six week boot camp.

11 months and 2 weeks after i waddled into my first appointment to look into getting lap band surgery, I am going to boot camp. Wow.

A former colleague and a friend's hubby are running it. They. are. going. to. kick. my. ass.

I think i'm in denial though because I'm honestly more worried about the wake up time than about anything they could possibly do to me.

This evening was sign up and a weight/body fat, measurement session. monday evening is fitness evaluation. They don't need to evaluate me.... i can tell them they have lots of work to do.

but starting Wednesday, every M, W, F for 2 weeks we meet at 5am... at a location roughly a half hour drive from my house. which means i'll be getting up @4am. WTF?!?!

After week 2 we move to 4x a week but they have 5am or 6pm sessions. I have a feeling I'll be making the switch!!! you know... for gas saving reasons.... because I could change after work and drive to the location which is actually on my way home.

I've been inspired to do this by Catherine of Chronicles from Band Land. She rocked boot camp and I intend to do the same.

Ouch! 4am really is terrible!! However, I know that you are going to ROCK this boot camp. Cannot wait to hear all about it in September!

I did a boot camp class about a year ago (or a year and a half)? It's well worth the challenge of doing it! I found it was a big challenge, but not quite as hard as I was afraid it would be. Very do-able. However, the 5 a.m. time killed me, so I couldn't continue with it. I was tired ALL. The. Time. I wish you lots of luck! Enjoy the experience!

GO you! That's awesome. I find the wakeup time harder than the rest - it's challenging, but having someone screaming at you to keep going is a pretty good incentive to not stop. That 6 pm session may be the perfection solution.

Good luck, keep us updated!
