In about 4 months time I will be on a beach somewhere in Thailand feeling like a piece of wobbly cooked spaghetti... yes this means I'll be all relaxed, but it also means I'll be all wobbly and self conscious...
With that thought I decided to join a boot camp, Adventure Boot Camp for Women.
Its affordable, forces me to get fit and allows me to buy a mat and dumbells in matching colours like a real girl.
So my first session was last night, not too sure what I was expecting, but I was really excited to get going, meet new people and FEEL THE BUUUUURN.
Ten minutes in I had a stitch, lost the ability to stand up straight and had a tomato for a face... I honestly thought I was going to faint and couldn't believe I had paid money to torture myself!
But once I got half way through the session I felt amazing, I ran faster than when I started, my lungs opened up and I giggled (guys don't giggle while you jog around a parking lot, its weird, I felt stupid, very stupid).
Its strange going into a situation like boot camp with complete strangers, all lined up on mats, lifting your butt in each others faces... so I entered into an unspoken buddy agreement with the girl next to me, just by putting my mat near hers, our brains had a bluetooth chat and decided to do everything together without me even getting her name or speaking one word, I don't think we even looked at each other, but thank you buddy, it was good to have someone next to me going at the same pace, I hope your legs are as stiff as mine today. Jeepers.
