Boot Camp Update - Week 1

We just finished the first week of boot camp… at this moment I am wondering why in the world I let Jennifer talk me into joining it… but I am at least getting my money’s worth! I have never worked out this hard in my entire life! My whole body is aching today!!

The first day I started seeing spots and the green grass looked yellow to me… apparently I was dehydrated and had to sit for a second. The trainer grabbed my wrist and waited until my pulse went down to 120…

The second time I made sure I drank lots of water during the day… and YAY – I didn’t get lightheaded or anything… but I did work so hard that I vomited… a lot… I think some of that was caused by my acid reflux…

So my lessons learned:
1. Make sure I drink lots of water and
2. Take my acid reflux medicine before I work out!

Hopefully next week will go more smoothly… although our trainer did say that it gets harder and harder each time, so who knows!!

I am ever more thankful I did not sign up for this. Thanks for sharing all that info - I'm very glad that I had already finished my breakfast.

Hope next week is better for you!
