Not that I was expecting anything less, but bootcamp is definitely kicking my butt. Today is day 3, and I’ve actually stuck to things amazingly well so far. The meal plans are adjustable (I’m substituting the meat for vegetarian friendly proteins and subbing in a snack here and there), so that’s been nice.
The hardest parts so far?
– Drinking 120 oz of water a day. I feel like I’m constantly chugging water!
– No candy/cookies/anything with added sugar or white flour. I generally don’t eat very much of that stuff, but every afternoon between the hours of 2 and 4, I REALLY want something sweet to help get me through the end of the day
The workouts have been extremely difficult too. Day 1 was a fitness test that you take at the beginning and end of the program to assess your progress. I certainly hop I come a long, long way from where I started! The fitness test alone completely wore out my legs and arms. Day 2 was very muscle-specific and I’m feeling it like crazy today in all my muscles.
This morning’s workout included tabata intervals, and after yesterday, my body just wasn’t having it. My thighs were NOT HAPPY about the jump squats, among other things. I wasn’t able to do all of the tabata intervals as a result.
After all that, I declared that tomorrow will be a rest day! My muscles need to repair themselves and my body needs to recover.
I’m hoping I can stick to it and see some results here soon! I’ll keep updating the blog as the weeks go on with how things are going.
