Booty Camp

Phew...i have been doing Boot Camp -Josh calls it Booty Camp- and it has been awesome! 2 days a week I work out with Stoney Eskew from Eskew Fitness. I was really scared at first, I thought she was going to be scary tough kind of like Jillian from Biggest Loser. Thankfully she is not this way- she is encouraging yet motivational. She is tough yet understanding. I love it!

I had a metabolic testing first. She tested my calorie burning when I am resting and also when I am working out. This way it I know what target heart rate I should be working out at and I know how many calories I should be eating each day.

I have always been good at cardio, I have always run, played sports etc. However, I haven't ever really lifted weights, done push ups, sit ups, planks, pull ups, you name it. It is good to have someone else push me to do lunges, or shoulder presses. As I sit here my arms feel like Jello- which I am glad because I know I am working hard. :)
