I haven’t written anything here for awhile, because to be honest, I wasn’t sure what tactic I wanted to take. What focus I wanted to put on this blog vs any others.
Now I know.
I’ve spent the past several months dealing with a broken heart. And I think we all know what comes from that? Eating poorly, sleeping poorly, taking care of ourselves poorly. All of those things happened. As hard as I have worked over the past year and a half, I think it would be safe to say there was a moment when I was ready to throw in the towel and just go back to what I knew.
But what I knew, no longer worked for me. That no longer served me. To be that person. And I knew it wouldn’t work for the people who knew me either.
So several weeks ago, I decided that it was time to take my health to a whole new level. I don’t even really know what that means to be honest. But more than what I had been doing. And what I had been doing, with a slight hiccup from June thru August, was boxing/kickboxing, 4-5x a week with the occasional spin class thrown in for good measure. However, given I’d been doing relatively the same work out for the past 15 or so months, I think my body was getting used to it. I’ll also admit that for awhile there, I didn’t care. As long as I could go to the gym and punch something, it didn’t matter that it was effective in any other way. So several weeks ago, I contacted a woman I know who runs a pretty fantastic well rounded fitness centre, about a program she created called the Biggest Winner. Obviously, modeled after the Biggest Loser, with a pretty great track record.
I have attended a number of the bootcamps so far, and I’m not going to lie…I have cried at the last 2. It’s really hard. Talk about a whole new level. I’ve definitely got that covered. I don’t know that I’ve ever worked out this hard. Which I suppose is the point. I am not going to lie. It’s really hard. My body aches all the time. Four days last week I had to take ibuprophen to sleep because my biceps and triceps were so strained. That was my fault mind you, because I was boxing in between bootcamps. It was too much. This morning, after the Sunday morning class, I woke up feeling like I’d been hit by a truck. Something tells me I’ll be confronting a lot in this program.
They do some great before and after photos, there’s goal setting, food tracking, coaching, and of course, the intense fitness.
I’ll be sharing all about it here.
Whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger…right?
