My Camp Gladiator Experience – Things I Couldn’t Do Before Camp Gladiator

My Camp Gladiator Experience - Things I Couldn't Do Before Camp Gladiator - Not So Crunchy Mom

I am almost finished with my 5th Camp in My Camp Gladiator Experience.  Although the scale doesn’t show a huge change, there have been things that have changed.  I remember reading somewhere that one small victory can cause you to have more belief to accomplish or even try other things.  To keep myself motivated, I decided to make a list of some of things that I couldn’t or wouldn’t have done or even tried before Camp Gladiator:

  1. Jog (I use that lightly) a complete warm up lap
  2. More than 5 push-ups (modified)
  3. Not cringe (as much) when the trainer says burpee
  4. Playing soccer with my boys in the back yard
  5. Riding a bike with my family
  6. Riding a bike to town on our trip in California (what?)
  7. Trying to hit the baseball with a bat with my kiddos
  8. Take pictures / Post pictures of myself in a sweaty mess
  9. Don’t dread walking or climbing stairs in places because I know I can do it
  10. Wear “active wear” out…and really be active 🙂
  11. Run up my stairs faster than before
  12. Wear shorts and tank tops without being so self conscious (still working on it)
  13. Actually show up and work out 3 to 5 times a week.
  14. Enjoy working out (most of the time)
  15. Feel stronger and like I can accomplish so much more
  16. Jump in a jump house with my kiddos
  17. Feel like I am getting healthier
  18. Have more endurance than when I started
  19. See muscles showing up on my arms and legs??  wut, wut!!
  20. Believe in myself more

I know that there are so many more, but some of these are SO big for me!  The changes may be slower than I would like…but I have to remember that it took me 37 years to get this way…and I am not going to change it in 5 months!

Good news!  You can join me this month!!  I have a few codes available to try out your very own 4 weeks of Camp Gladiator starting June 27.  Are you ready to start?  Send me an email at notsocrunchymom@gmail.com and I will let you know if I have any codes left for you to join!!

  1. I love reading your progress and witness it along the way. I know you can do this and are getting stronger by the minute! Kuddos on you and your hubby for keeping it up! ❤️

  2. I’m on camp 4 and just noticed last week that I can do 10+ push-ups without modification. When I started in July, I could do maybe 3 push-ups before going into modified push-ups. I haven’t lost much weight, but I feel stronger. I still struggle with the warm-up jog, but I think that is due to shin splints, crunchy knees, and improper breathing. My pulse is close to 170 just doing the warm-up jog and I’m only about 25 lbs overweight.
