Boot Camp Challenge Day 1

Today, we tackled the 10 minute workout with Coach Nicole. My main complaint is that it isn't 10 minutes long. It's more like 7 minutes long with a two minute cool down. That really disappointed me because by minute seven I was working up a good sweat, and she cut it short. Ugh! So, I did a Walk Away the Pounds video to keep my momentum going for at least a half hour.

My suggestion on the Spark People non-music issue? Pull up pandora.com, set the "station" to a workout song you like (for me, it's Britney's Womanizer) and they'll play a whole bunch of songs that are similar to that song. On the Womanizer station, I hear a lot of Kanye, Christina, Lady Gaga, Pussycat Dolls, etc. Helps me move rather than hearing the tapping of Coach Nicole's feet.

So, I bought a balance ball at TJ Maxx and it was a complete bust. The damn thing wouldn't inflate. I'm returning it later today and hitting up Walmart instead. Saving $10 vs. having an inflatable ball? Hmm, no contest there.

How are YOU doing with the first Boot Camp workout? Ready for some cardio tomorrow?

OK. I did my first day, and I agree with you about the cool down coming too soon. I think I will save that workout for days when I dont work out, at all. I would have much rather had a little strength training today.

I did a hour of softball and man I am sore! Especially my arms from batting practice. It felt really good to run around the field and use my body functionally though.

I forgot about Pandora. Used to listen to it a couple years ago, then just got out of the habit...

I have to admit I didn't do the video..felt like I needed a little more push yesterday, so I did some cardio at the gym instead.

I did the first day along with the 15 minute ab workout and the 20 minute stability ball workout! The 1st day workout was too short. The ab workout was great and really kicked me!
