I’m feeling a little blah. Nothing to write home and complain about, but enough that I feel like just laying in bed all day.
It doesn’t help that I managed to forget my blood pressure meds on Sunday night and have been battling the water retention that comes from that error ever since. I gained about 8 lbs in water weight and it is *so* uncomfortable.
I am someone who has a naturally optimistic outlook on life on the inside, but can be quite sarcastic and a *smidge* pessimistic on the outside. Sometimes that *smidge* gets inside my brain and can really bring me down. I’m feeling a little Eeyore today.
I’m trying to pump myself up though because tonight is the start of ULTIMATE BOOTCAMP! About a month or so ago I got an email from Groupon that had a fantastic deal for a 4-week bootcamp that I had tried once before. I forwarded the email to a few friends and then signed up.
Then it hit me. I HATED bootcamp! Seriously. It was hard. There were high school kids involved. There was running. And most awkwardly, there was scampering.
As I started to prepare for the week on Sunday I started to get a little hivey at the thought of bootcamp. I called my Mom, who I call any time I am starting to freak out about something, and she reminded me that I’m at such a different fitness level than I was in April.
So tonight I am busting out the outdoor workout gear, a raincoat (boooo to bad weather!) and a little bit of courage. Fingers crossed!
Adding bootcamp to my workout schedule is the perfect shake-up that I needed and also satisfies my need for routine. I wanted to make sure I planned appropriately for the week to make sure I had food ready to go when I got home and my other workouts wouldn’t totally wipe me out.
Thursday- Ultimate Bootcamp
Friday-Nothing. Nada. Not a single thing.
Saturday-Total Body Shred/Running
I’m also trying out a few new meals including a few attempts at perfecting the stuffing for these Zucchini Pockets.
I’m off to work on turning the frown upside-down and hopefully peeing like a racehorse to get rid of this extra water. Fun times ahead!
PS. Animated gifs are the best thing on the internet. You know, next to celebrity gossip and this blog.
