So, I have managed to complete two weeks of boot camp...and I am THRILLED. I am convinced that signing up for this camp has (to a certain extent) changed my life within a short period of time.
Getting up at 5:30 in the morning has not been easy, but it's been well worth it. I can't describe the feeling of finishing a class, heading home, and enjoying time for MYSELF in the morning, before I go to work. In the past two weeks I have used this "self window" to accomplish a laundry list of things, including dishes, cleaning my home, journaling, taking Lucy to the dog park, and more. I feel productive, energized, confident, and happy. I get to work earlier, and do not feel stressed out (like I used to), rushing off to work in a frenzy, worrying about a list of to-do items unaccomplished.
My instructor, Kimae, is wonderful. She is kind, enthusiastic, and radiates positive energy 24/7. She gives 100% each class and gives great individual coaching despite having 30 or more clients to work with at once. Thank you, Kimae!
When I began this camp, I also decided to give up coffee and sweets during the four weeks. It's been challenging, but also well worth it. Without my daily dose of coffee, I am calmer, less stressed, and I sleep better. I also save money each week without the usual trips to coffee shops. I also feel way better without sweets. It's less crap in your system and (I believe) keeps your blood sugar more stable.
Stay tuned for more updates along the way!
