New Cycle-New Faces

I remember my 1st day of BAM. Walking in feeling nervous, excited, and asking myself just what had I done. Wondering if I would be able to keep up, not pass out or throw up, and not knowing exactly what to expect. 

There were several women who had the same look on their face as I did, several I knew and some I didn't. Ladies said Hi, welcomed me to class, that helped...A LOT. Music started, and I struggled. Just kept moving and trying to keep up with the Trainer.

 Had a few moments where I thought to myself "You aren't doing that bad", and then a few when I thought "Who are you kidding?", but...I kept moving. Kept showing up. Told my co-workers, "I've joined a cult and they are trying to kill me." Now that "cult" is my BAM Fam, and I love them. It's a sisterhood, and I love it.

Now, four years later, it's my normal...can't go without it or I feel lost. I am stronger, healthier, and feel so much better about myself. I have lots more energy.  If I can do it, you can too! Just have to take that 1st step and then keep stepping. Am I where I want to be? No, but I get closer every day.  B.A.M. has changed me for the better, and it can you too....just say yes!

Are You Crazy? You work out at 5 am?

The alarm goes off at 4:15 am. I roll out of bed, throw on some clothes and my hair up into a pony tail. It's reflex now...(the first 2 weeks were a little rough), and it doesn't even require much thought. Mix up and drink my pre-workout, and hit the door.
Why? Why would you get up that early every morning...let me tell you my reasons...
1. I have no other commitments at that time
2. No One (husband,kids + Grandkids) needs me at that time (usually that is) (less excuses to not go then at the end of my day when everything is going on)
3. I have put my work in on the front end of the day so I eat better ;)
4. I am dead tired come 6 am, but I hit the shower and then I have tons of energy all day plus the calorie burn keeps going.
5. The Ladies that I work out with, they count on me just like I count on them for accountability, encouragement, and just the knowing "Hey, I'm not in this alone"!

Maybe 5 am doesn't work for you, MAKE the time for YOU whenever it is! YOU are so worth it!
