Holy heart failure Batman! I joined an exercise Boot Camp.
In case you don’t know, Boot Camps are a hardcore outdoor exercise program where they run you backwards up hills, and make you do backwards pushups and a ton of squats and other evil stuff. There’s also a strict diet plan that doesn’t include sweets. They’ve set me up to fail.
I don’t know why I signed up. Really. The only thing I can figure is I was under the influence of an overdose of cold/flu medicine at the time.
I believe being “under the influence of cold medicine” is grounds for temporary insanity. Not that I necessarily qualify for the “temporary” part.
This particular Booty Camp is ten weeks long, and it started this past weekend. (I’m calling it “Booty” camp because it’s all about getting my booty in shape.) Needless to say, my booty was bringing up the rear of the booty camp. Thank goodness I wasn’t the very last booty, like I was six months ago. This time there were about 200 people so my odds were better.
“Before” photos were required. Mine are really awful looking – which is why I joined the Booty Camp. If I do well, I may share the “after” photos. Maybe… but they might be awful, too.
One of the first things I did this year was take Checkers for a walk… this is my attempt at “enriching her environment”. I’m not sure if there is any enriching of environments happening, but it felt good to do the following for once. What? You thought I walked her? No, no, no. There may be a leash between us, but she decides where we go and I just follow. I would make a good dog.
I’m really looking forward this new year! I was trying to think of a list of resolutions, but I kind of make them all year long. Along with the aforementioned goal to get in shape and lose 20 pounds, there are several other things I want to accomplish:
Do what scares me. Take the leap, make the move, grab the brass ring.
Get that motorhome and travel the country. Travel the world.
Take care of myself. Spoil me. Lose the weight. Get in shape. Meditate.
Be a giver. Pay it forward. Do random acts of kindness.
Spend more time with friends and family.
The new year is upon us my dear Kernutties. What are you going to do with it? What are your plans for the New Year?
