Daily Diary: I’m Really Out Of Shape

Still loving the gym. Gone 4x this week and am happy with my commitment level. It’s easy when you have friends and family laughing besides you. I took yesterday off because I was in the city all day working with Pediasure. By the time I got home with traffic, I was spent. So, I barely made it into my pajamas and then passed out.

Today, I headed in for a 9:30 class. Boot Camp.

Yes, you heard me. A boot camp class. Who the hell do I think I am?

Anyway, I get into the class and at first it’s ok. The warmup part…. 😉 Well, 30 minutes in I can hardly breath and I go to sit down because I was THIS CLOSE to passing out. The instructor runs over to me and tells me to stand up – head above my knees because it’s better for circulation. I catch my breath, drink a ton of water and finish the class.

I am the least in-shape person there. There are many other women in the class heavier than me – but it’s not about weight when it comes to cardio. It’s how FIT you are and I am…. just…. not.

But I’m not upset about it. At least I’m doing something – right?

But holy hell this is hard.

Anyway, I met my friend for lunch after a quick shower at my favorite Japanese spot and I felt really happy with myself. It’s the first time in my life where I am actually taking control of this issue. My legs were shaking. It was hard to move my shoulder around… but it’s good pain. So, I’m excited.

    Have you checked out the C25K thing? (Couch to 5K program by Cool Running) It might help since it’s so gradual! I have so many friends who’ve done it and rave about it! Actually I think Jennie Garth was just talking about it recently, too! 🙂
