Today was the first day of Outer Banks Bootcamps Plus! What an incredible morning it was. Yes, surgery is in my future for my back. I need to have a spinal fusion in my l5 – s1, but due to timing and money I have to hold off till the fall. My doctor gave me the okay to join back up. He did tell me there are certain exercises I needed to be cautious of, such as full on sit-ups.
I woke up this morning excited! Granted, it was 4:30 in the morning which is a crazy time to wake up. Not my favorite time of day, but heading to boot camp will help! This is my first boot-camp where I have seen such a large crowd. Over 60 people were signed up this morning. Nothing like having 60 eager folks to join you in a quest of health. The motivation was felt in the air and nothing could be more inspiring then that! We had a morning of jogging, sit-ups, push-ups, jumping jacks and a dip in the ocean. Once I got over the initial shock of the cold water, it wasn’t that bad! The most inspiring activity was a line of people doing sit-ups in the water. Talk about team work!
I look forward to this journey with all my friends and new friends. I can’t wait to see what the next 6 weeks bring, but after today I am excited about the changes coming my way!
Wish me luck on my journey of starting again!
