So I got up again at 4:30 a.m. again today and went to boot camp.
Day two – check. Yay.
But I’m starting to believe that the challenge in completing this month will be less about the “getting up early” and more about “the intense workout”. Maybe it’s because it’s only five hours since I finished this morning’s 50-minute exercise and I’m having trouble walking.
And exerting any kind of energy. It hurts to type this, for pete’s sake. And I don’t remember working out my fingertips specifically.
So I’m starting to worry a little. But I’m not giving up. I even purchased a new pair of running shoes yesterday since my previous pair were about four years old and made my arches hurt. (By the way – when did running shoes get so expensive?!) Anyways I was really happy to have them this morning when I was one of the first to fall out of the plank position and had to “run” a lap as punishment. Yes – I used quotes around “run”. Because I’m not sure you could call what I did a “run”. But I made it around a full lap. And I didn’t puke.
That was “fun”.
Day two of boot camp is also day one of summer vacation, by the way. So needless to say we haven’t had a chance to fall into our summer schedule/rhythm yet. I’ve only had to put out three fights between my almost first-grader and almost fifth-grader.
Thankfully they don’t know that I can’t chase them yet. If they find out…I’m toast. Please don’t tell them.
How’s your summer going so far?! Moving any mountains? Making any progress towards your goals?
Day-by-day, my friends. Day-by-day.
