The Graduate Goes To Bootcamp

Good Morning and Happy Thursday!

Yesterday I took an unplanned day off from blogging. I was completely preoccupied with work, and putting some final touches on YOUtrition.

For more information visit my Health Coaching tab or email me:

Last night I had physical therapy for the first time in over a week, and since I have returned to my workouts.
Little did I know it was also my last time.

After speaking with my PT,whom I love, ( if you live on Long Island ABC PT in West Babylon is the best!) we discussed how I felt after returning to kickboxing and interval training classes. I told her I was still making slight modifications but even without them I wasn't feeling pain like I was two months ago.
With that she replied "Okay then this is your last session, you've graduated."

I was kind of shocked. I wasn't expecting to be finished this soon.
Especially because the Orthopedic office I went to told me surgery, surgery, surgery.

I am so happy I can return to my normal, crazy-insane workout schedule. 
I asked her if I can run again and she said to do anything that feels right, and if there is pain to take it slow/rest. 

So I will be running my first 5k since I tore my meniscus in August, NEXT Saturday.
I am a little nervous because I haven't been running or doing much cardio since my diagnosis, and it shows.
I was dying during Jump & Drill last Saturday. I left there feeling as if I was going to throw up...sorry TMI.

However, I am doing this race to have fun, not to PR. I want to get back into the swing of things because I may have some plans in the works for races next spring.
::cue suspicious music::
Not to mention I have Jump & Drill before the actual 5k, so I'll be pretty tired.
I'm hardcore, what can I say.

Sorry I am just rambling on and on, that's what happens when you take a day off from blogging mid-week.

In other news..

That's right I signed up for Tina's Bootcamp! This is the third session she has held and I am really excited to be a part of it.
If you want to sign up do it now! Registration closes on October 15th

Bootcamp runs from October 22-December 17th and only costs $25!
Perfect to get your body in shape by and through the holiday season.

Lauren and I are doing it together, I am also going to try and recruit my mom as well.
It helps working out with friends and family, a little competition never hurt anyone ;)

So I will be taking measurements and posting them on October 21, this way I can do an accurate comparison before/after.

Speaking of measurements. 
I went on the scale this morning for the first time in three months, and I am happy to report
Man did that put an extra pep in my step today.

I think bootcamp is going to push me in a different way and continue to transform my body. I hope I am right! I have heard nothing but fantastic things about the program.

Okay enough rambling on and on....have a great day sweaties!
