So I’ve had a busy weekend and therefore a busy week playing catch-up, but I am finally sitting down to recap week 3 of the Bootcamp and also talk a little bit about Ren-Faire.
As you may know, I am part of a pirate guild called the Northstar Penguins. We participate in renaissance faires throughout the year, dressing up in pirate garb, selling ice to other vendors, and just generally having a great time.
I love to dress up in costume, so this is one of my favorite activities…not to mention the rum drinking, camping, and general entertainment of hanging out with my guild for a weekend of pirating
Here are a couple of other pictures with guild members to give you an idea of the scene:
Overall it was a great faire except it was pretty cold the whole time. We got rained out on Sunday, but it only added to the entertainment, in my opinion…I mean think about it: One big pavilion, pirates in garb, rum, more rum, music, Elizabethan wordplay, more rum, a pillow palace complete with stuffed penguins, food, more rum, and more rum…how could that not be fun?
Needless to say, I took a recovery day on Monday off of work and off of the Bootcamp. BUT I started right back in on Tuesday with life as I knew it before Faire.
Which brings me to my next subject:
Week 3 Best Body Bootcamp Recap
This week, the hardest thing to accomplish was Friday’s workout. I was getting everything ready for Faire, shopping, packing, etc and I really wanted to just skip my workout, but I persevered, got through it, and i’m glad I did
2) what was the easiest thing to accomplish this week?
I think Monday’s workout was easiest, because I was able to workout at home. I ran around the block between sets for the cardio bursts, and since my legs are strong it was easier for me to accomplish…still felt it the next day though!
3) What moment am I most proud of?
I am most proud of the fact that I managed to fit in all of my workouts and goals this week, despite attending Faire on the weekend.
4) What would I like to do differently next week?
I have been going to bed too late, and also not eating enough fruits and veggies (still!) so I want to try to be better about that.
5) What would I like to do the same next week?
I would like to once again make it through all my goals. Since Monday was a rest day, I gotta make sure I get that last cardio set in on Saturday.
And there you have it folks, my week in a nutshell. So far so good with my Bootcamp this week, looking forward to a pretty relaxed weekend and also looking forward to going to LAS VEGAS the following week! (more on that later)
