So…it has been a little while since I have updated on My Camp Gladiator Experience…and there are a few reasons for that…number 1 is that four letter word…FEAR! It is funny if you look back at my posts it stops after week 3 of camp 3. Guess what happened during week 4? It’s this horrible thing that my dear trainers Kevin and Jessie Richardson like to call Fight Gone Bad. If you remember, I completed it at the end of my first camp here. I was SUPER excited about completing it at the end of Camp 3 to see how much progress I had made. If you don’t remember, it is going through 1 minute of 5 different exercises with NO BREAK and then a 1 minute break between the 5 different rounds…so it adds up to 25 minutes of hard work with about 5 minutes of break in between. It is TOUGH!
We began our FGB and I pushed HARD on the first round…at the beginning of the second round my body started feeling SO strange…so I slowed down, drank some water and tried to catch my breath. I tried to keep working through my rounds, but just got really distracted by how weird I was feeling. Something that I haven’t mentioned much is that I struggle with a little health anxiety and kinda freak out when my body starts feeling really weird. So…instead of just calming down, taking a break, finding some shade…I got all freaked out and just packed up my stuff and left 🙁 I know it sounds so crazy…but I was afraid something was wrong and didn’t want to be embarrassed in front of everyone…so I just left. The crazy thing is that after talking to my trainer Jessie, she informed me it is a natural reaction when you work hard and lose the sugar in your body…on top of that I hadn’t drank enough water and it was the first hot day of the year that we had worked out.
After that day I had trouble finishing the end of camp and honestly the 4th camp was a me battling through my anxiety and just trying to push through. I didn’t make it more than 3 times each week of camp and just kind of lost my fire and hope. But I had signed up for Total Transformation in May…Camp 5…and knew I had to come in order to get results. After much prayer, conversations and just doing it…I feel like I am getting back to a routine in Camp 5!
Although Camp 3 and 4 didn’t go as planned, I do have to highlight that I did have changes that wouldn’t have happened without Camp Gladiator in my life. In the picture it shows my sister and nephew that came to try out Camp and most of all, my kiddos leading their own work out:) Such great signs of things ahead!
