Boot Camp? I can’t believe I’m considering this!

Posted in Crazy Wisdom,Workout on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 9:03 pm by flerly.

Well, Miss Pam wants me to join her in a boot camp courtesy of these guys: http://www.atlantaadventurebootcamp.com

The next class is:
Camp 3A – Starts: 4/16 Ends: 5/11 – 4 week class
5:15 a.m. – 6:15 a.m. – Nesbit El. S. Norcross Tucker Rd
5 days/week $299 or 3 days/week $199

The testimonials on the site are encouraging, but as the girls pointed out when I put out the feeler to see who else might want in, it’s 5. effen. am.

SO, it seems when we tried to sign up today that the last class just finished on the 16th and the instructor for this particular class is taking a vacation before starting the next series on the 16th of next month. Thus, we really can’t sign up until at least the first of April, or so sayeth the person answering at their number.

Well, since it is 5 in the morning we’re talking about, which would be more like 4:30 if I wanted to get dressed, get up there and be on time so I don’t get “penalty pushups”…. I figured this week with JT away is a good time to test myself on this schedule.

So, since I have to get up at 5 tomorrow ANYWAY to drop off JT with his Dad for his trip, I thought, I’ll just come home and workout, shower and try to get my day started earlier. Then, Monday – Friday of next week, I’ll leave that alarm set for 5 am and see if I can make myself JUST GO DOWNSTAIRS and do a DVD for an hour all five days.

Now, I realize there isn’t a lot of motivation to get up and do a DVD, so I might revise that to go to our gym and do the treadmill for an hour cardio-coach session, but the bigger question is… WILL I GET UP 5 days in a row and achieve this.

If I am hating life, dragging ass at work, a functional-zombie during the day because I can’t adjust to the schedule, then well, perhaps the 5am boot camp needs to be reconsidered. There were other locations that offered other times, just none starting so soon and we were both afraid we’d lose the will to try this if we had to wait until May or June to enroll.

And thus is the state of the Flerly_Diet. Still counting those calories, too.

    I think you will be fine if you can just push yourself to not watch late night TV or WOW or whatever. I mean if you don’t go to bed till 2 you are going to be hurting in the morning. You are going to have to go to bed with the sun. Nothing wrong with that, it’s just a matter of if the house will let you with JT and the mad making noise and what not.

    Picturing this sentence in my head, it’s already the funniest thing ever…. I wanted to say “No worries since we haven’t WoW’d since the Wii.” Ben & Maggie are hating us I’m sure. We haven’t even Wii’d for weeks, due to JT playing Zelda, which is a solo game.

    And, Tivo can handle late night TV. I never get to watch my shows anyway, I’m already recording them and watching them later so the boys can watch their stupid shit.

    The noise is going to be the issue, but not JT, since his domain is the way downstairs. It’s Bradley I have to convince to lower the music at about… what.. 9pm for the old lady to get some zzzzzzzzz’s.
