I was a whiny boot camper this morning. We ran 400 meters and then did as many railing pull-ups as possible and repeated as many times as we could for 20 minutes. I was okay with the running part, but the rail pullups, I just couldn’t really do. I was getting frustrated with myself and vented to Mike, the instructor. He kept saying that I needed to do all of the homeworks and that the people who do all of the homeworks are the strongest boot campers. Let me explain, we have class 4 days a week and 2 of the non-class days, we have a homework. The homeworks are something like do 100 squats, 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups and 100 rail pullups. They’re little things like that. Sometimes I do them and sometimes I don’t. The main reason that I don’t is because I feel like if I’m not at boot camp, I should be running and then when I finish my run, I don’t feel like doing more work.
Mike’s right in a way. I’m sure I would get stronger if I did the homework. BUT, I feel like there are some things (push-ups and rail pull-ups for example) that have just not gotten easier in the three months that I’ve been doing boot camp. I mean, even without the homework, these should get easier, right? Or I should be able to do more. I don’t understand why they aren’t and that is frustrating.
Whine. Whine. Wine? Nah. By the way, thanks to everyone who gave me photographer advice. I do have a certain style in mind and I think the one that I found is exactly what I am thinking of. Only problem is she is a bit more expensive than was budgeted. But I think we could cut back on certain things and it would even out. I hope so. The photography is so important to me.
Speaking of photography, here’s a random picture of my baby.
And I leave you with a question, yet again. I have been growing some backyard tomatoes in a pot and slugs have gotten to them. Gross, huh? I’ve been looking up what to do as I do not want to spray any chemicals. I’ve read that you can put a glass of beer by the plant and the slugs will be attracted to that instead of the tomatoes. Any expertise in the subject? I do not have a green thumb.
