For years I’ve been doing the Bootcamp thing – it used to be SO tough, but you know what, it’s now a habit. Josh Woods is our Bootcamp Boy, (or some days we like to call him a B******D…no wait…that’s what we call him all the time!!), he has something called Awaken Your Fitness, now an online body transformational fitness programme, which has also become a habit. I’m more likely to feel motivated to run or do yoga after I’ve dropped the girls off to school – not sure why I didn’t do this in my 30’s! But then I had two small people who rarely slept…yeah…that’s probably why!
We’re a dedicated bunch of Bootcampers, and we’d much rather be outside in the freezing cold than a sweaty gym class – we do this most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays – clearly we have some fantastic excuses when it’s freezing AND raining, but apart from that, we’re mostly there at 6.30am beating the crap out of each other, or just generally moaning about how many burpees we’re told to do! We love it really…no really…we do!!
I know it seems like a long journey to find the motivation to be fit again, but it literally is taking each day at a time, adding some form of exercise in that day is better than nothing at all – for me, it’s not about losing weight, but being able to do more and having more motivation to tackle everything with the same vigour and avoiding illnesses where possible. But yes, if you’re wondering, I have lost weight, and my body has changed!
