I know i normally tell you all about my latest make but today i wanted to tell you about my weekend away.
My hubby got me one of those KGD deals for christmas. It was for a weekend away at GI jane bootcamp.
Yes i did type that correctly - BOOT CAMP!
Me, the sofa surfing queen of lazy doing excersize!!!!!!
Well off I went on friday, trainers and jog bottoms packed. My train journey down was exciting as train journeys generally are. On the train was a lady, with a bag and i wondered if she was bootcamping too. At the station i went out side to wait and lo and behold she joined me and we got chatting. As we did andother 5 ladies joined us and then we all piled in a taxi and set off.
The place where the bootcamp is held is beautiful and the view out of the room i shared with 2 other lovely ladies was magnificent (but i failed to take pictures so you'll have to take my word for it!)
We got started once we had all been weighed and measured, situps, pressups and a 1.2mile run!
The next 2 days were packed with strenuous activities, hard work but utter fun . Our trainers were fantastic, pushing us to achieve everything we could. The sunday afternoon assult course (complete with wooden guns) was tough but even i kept going for the sake of the brown hens (our team, named after one of the hens that was wondering about and i kept eyeing up for dinner).
In the evenings we had salsa dancing and a body image talk. I also ventured into the 'ice bath' (big blue barrel filled with really cold water, and i mean really!) We also had a presentation from the nutritionalist.I lost a little weight and some inches but more importantly i had the most fantastic weekend and have made some fantastic friends. I'd go again but not straight away, i need my muscles to recover first!
