Hey Mamavation Peeps another week and I am still here. So this is the end of the official first week of Mamavation Boot Camp and I am proud to say I survived.
Boot Camp was easier than the hazing. Not to say that it is easy at all. I wake up in the morning with these things that are called energy and excitement for working out. I know can you believe it actually looking forward to working out.I love how Mark @MrBookieboo has made these workouts hard but not so hard that they can’t be done. I have found the push ups the most challenging of all the exercises. I have become friends with Mr. Burpee and his brothers Lunges, Squats and Crunches. I will conquer these push ups this week or die trying. I forbid to do wall push ups or the dreadful push ups on my knees ( girly ones) and why the heck are they called GIRL push ups because you are on your knees. First thing in the morning I like to hit the treadmill for a good 90 minutes at a 3.5 with an incline of 3 to get my 10,000 steps in.
After that whatever steps I do is just a bonus. I am not going to lie I was feeling like a ROCK STAR after all this working out then I got on that DEVIL called the scale. I will tell you I almost died right there so I took off every last inch of clothing and weighed myself again, well I’ll be damned I gained 3 lbs. Yes, I know my body is breaking down and rebuilding muscle and water weight and all that good stuff but tell it to the scale because when I got off it he started to laugh at me. I love all my Mamavation Sista’s but my other 2 partners in crime are such a blessing to me. We have come up with code names because everyone needs one. I have been crowned MACHETE it may be because I use one to open coconuts. Heck that is the only way I have ever seen it done blame it on my Cuban side of the family.
The three of us push each other and even have had Google+ walking dates. I think we balance each other Janae is our moral compass, Joanna is the reasonable one and I will take the bad girl title.This week Shannon mentioned that we should take a picture of our self in a sports bra & shorts or bathing suit just for our own to look back on I did just that in a bathing suit nothing like seeing all the goods in print and put it in a sealed envelope that I will open when I hit that goal weight. Next week I plan on screaming from the top of my lungs my weight loss. Until next week but before then tweet you later.
