Day three of boot camp took a pretty good shot at my confidence!
I am becoming increasingly aware that my previous workouts didn’t focus nearly enough on stability.
I felt like a no-talent ass clown (Office Space, anyone?) today as I attempted to do single leg split squats on the stability ball while holding two 15-pound dumbbells.
I wobbled all over the place looking like a looney… and then picked up the stability ball and punted it across the gym in frustration after I completed the final set. Just kidding about the punting (not the looking like a looney).
It was a humbling experience to say the least!
I think I may decrease the weight of the dumbbells I used or do the move with no weight at all as I raise and lower my body slowly to see if that helps me feel more secure next time.
I think I earned a tasty breakfast after this morning’s workout and fixed myself a delicious plate of two Van’s whole grain waffles after Ryan and I arrived home from the gym.
I topped my waffles with ricotta cheese, a sliced nectarine and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
I think Ryan was a little jealous of my breakfast this morning. It was a good one fo’ sho’!
Time to get to work! I have an afternoon meeting for my volunteer work with the Taste of Ocala and hope to check a bunch of things off my to-do list before heading out.
Question of the Morning
- What was the last humbling experience you had during a workout?
