BBB Week 1 Recap
Even though it's only been a week, and I am LOVING Best Body Bootcamp! The workouts that Tina gives us are challenging but doable, and some of the new-to-me moves are some of my new favorite exercises! I also love that there are different things that each phase focuses on, and this phase focuses on controlled movements and balance. I really need to work on balance, so I really enjoyed Core Workout B that included lots of balance moves.
As far as Activity goes, I got in 4 days of activity (Strength Workouts A and B, Cardio Workout A, and Cardio of Choice day). I'm pleased with that, although I didn't earn an entry toward the weekly prize. I'd only been having about 3 days a week of activity, so that's an improvement!
There are also two Goals to set for the week to improve your health, and I met those goals 6/7 days for Goal 1, and 5/7 days for Goal 2, each earning me prize entries.
My goal for the upcoming week: get at least 5 out of 7 days of activity! I also hope to meet each of my goals for the week, as well.
I have to tell y'all something.
I am obsessed with manatees.
It started in 4th grade with my teacher who loved dolphins. She had us do projects on anything that interested us, and I decided to do one on manatees. I thought they were the cutest marine animal, and after my project, I knew I wanted to see one in the wild. Any time I've been in Florida and I've seen a "Manatee Area" sign, I've been on the look-out.
Well, today, I got to see one!!!
Joe and I went to Blue Springs State Park, which is a manatee refuge during the winter. The water is always 73 degrees, so the manatees come there for warmer water from November to April.
The first thing we saw was a gator. Joe is a native Floridian, and told us at first that it was a 6-foot gator. Then it moved out of the water and on to the bank.

When we got back, Joe and I took the dog for a 2.2 mile run. I didn't get in my long run for the week (thanks to Workout B of BBB...super sore hamstrings!!!), but we did run under a 10-minute mile pace.
Hope everyone had a great weekend, and have a great start to the week! See y'all tomorrow with a recap of my day/the start of BBB Week 2.
