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 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 [...]

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

Whoa Mama! That’s what I have to say about today’s Kraze Boot Camp class! “PUSHUPS, JUMPING JACKS, PUSHUPS PLANKS, INCHWORMS, DIPS, DUMBELL ROWS, BAND LATERAL RAISES, JUMP ROPE, BICEP CURLS, JUST TO NAME A FEW OF THE EXERCISES FROM TODAYS UPPER BODY WORKOUT!” This is a direct quote from my trainer’s Facebook page. I had [...]

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

Back home. Back to the daily Dance. Back to Kraze Boot Camp classes. I missed the first week of this session, but I’m jumping back in with both feet. Thank goodness I kept moving while I was on vacation! I’m thankful to Aaron for sending a suggested daily workout to keep me from getting totally [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Make-up Day 2…LAST DAY!

I DID IT! I know I’m totally blowing my own horn, but I’m REALLY proud of myself! Come on, I’ve got a million and one excuses, Um-reasons, to NOT get my behind to a 6am workout. But I tucked all those lil reasons into an envelope and moved forward one day at a time. Pushing [...]

Mommy of Many™ Goes to Boot Camp-Make-up Day 1

Here I am at the first of 2 make-up days, then I will have officially completed everyday of the 4 week Kraze Boot Camp! Yea! Today’s trail was my right shoulder and forearm. Seems I’ve overworked it a little. I had it massaged and it hurt like crazy! But it will get the rest it [...]
