First Week Back to School & Work-Done!

What a week! We jumped back into the routine on Tuesday with a 1/2 day of school and a pool party afterward. Everyone did a GREAT job of getting up and getting going. Gabi was SUPER excited to put on her uniform and new shoes and become a kindergartner. I was really proud of everyone, [...]

Whoo Hoo! I am Lookin Forward to Starting Tomorrow off with Boot Camp!

2 weeks ago my second session of Kraze Boot Camps ended. In that time, my 3 high school age girls started back to school and my morning schedule no longer allowed for me to make it to the classes. The days have been filled with running back and forth to the school, entertaining the 4 [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 4/Day 5-My Last Day

Here it is, the last day of Kraze Boot Camps class for M.O.M. This is the last day of the session, then it’s a week off and when the new camp starts up, I’ll be knee-deep in back to school schedules. This means no more 6 am classes for me. I feel mixed emotions! I’m [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 4/Day 4

Today’s Kraze Boot Camps class was abs/Core/Cardio-my favorite day! Seriously! I think it’s because I get to lay on my mat to do a lot of the exercises. Not that there isn’t plenty of running happening, but I DO like the more stationary exercises (lazy me!). Plus you can really feel your abs working and [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 4/Day 3

Today’s lesson- Sometimes life gets in the way of your best intentions and well-laid plans. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to make this morning’s 6am Kraze Boot Camps class, so I had let Aaron know I’d be trying out the evening class. By 1pm, everything had changed. Mariah got called into work [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 4/Day 2

The focus of today’s Kraze Boot Camp class was upper body. Kristi guided today’s class, while Aaron walked amongst us, checking form and encouraging us through the exercises. Her style is definitely different than his, but it kept it interesting and new, which seems to keep us going. I felt like we ran more than [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 4/Day 1

It’s the last week of this session and the thing I was most looking forward to today was FINALLY trying out my post workout shake! I went to the Kraze Boot Camps/GNC Happy Hour event on Friday and finally found out exactly what I needed AND got a great discount on it! If you missed [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 3/Day 5

Today marked the end of week 3. I’m super excited about the end of this week because it means that tomorrow is the special event at GNC for all Kraze Boot Camp-ers and those who are thinking of becoming Kraze Boot Camp-ers. I’m finally going to get the RIGHT protein powder so that I can [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 3/Day 4

Only one more day left in Week 3 of this session of Kraze Boot Camps classes. I was thinking back to the first session and that around this time, my body was really fighting with me to give up. It’s good to look back, know I pushed through it and that I’m not having the [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 3/Day 3

It was bound to happen and today was the day that my Kraze Boot Camps world and my M.O.M. world collided. Last night Maddi asked me to wake her up before I headed to Boot Camp so that she could ride along, wait while I worked out and then I could drop her off at [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 3/Day 2

3 things about today- 1) Upper body/shaky arms/sore shoulder/new kinds of push-ups that I would NEVER have thought of! 2) My notebook is missing! This can only mean that the kiddos took it for lack of coloring paper. I will be purchasing a new notebook tomorrow. Seriously-I can’t find it! 3) Kraze Boot Camps and [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 3/Day 1

Today was the first time that there was something that kept me from getting to my 6am Kraze Boot Camp class. But even though I didn’t get to work out this morning, I still had healthy eating on my mind. While I cooked dinner (potstickers, brown rice and edamame), I was eating some of the [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 2/Day 5

This session is 1/2 over! I had a tough time getting out of bed and out to the 6am Kraze Boot Camp class this morn. It was the closest I’ve come to not going. At 5 I realized that my clothes were still in the washer. I grabbed some dry towels, put them into the [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 2/Day 4

Abs and Core That was the theme of today’s Kraze Boot Camp workout. Though my rear end and legs are still demanding attention from yesterday’s class! OUCH! I’m finding it difficult to write about today’s class because I’m preoccupied with my itchy eyes, throat, back and arms. Aaron had us run over to a grassy [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Session 2/Week 2/Day 3

Dear Aaron My knees are sore. My butt is sore. My legs are wobbly. If my children drop something on the ground I must tell them to pick it up themselves. I can not bend down because I will not be able to get back up. When I sit down (such as now), I pray [...]
