Kim Kardashian’s marriage could have been saved with Boot Camp

Big news last week was that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce. I really can’t say I was surprised, but I was shocked.  Shocked that everyone was talking about it.  Honestly, who cares?!

It took her longer to plan her wedding than her 72 day marriage lasted….yikes!

Actually, it made me think about how this relates to weight loss and fitness.  Seriously, there is a connection, stay with me here.

Everyday people start a weight loss or fitness program, but don’t ever really give it a full commitment.  A bump in the road, a little challenge, a temptation and in goes the towel!  You might be one of those people…..hmmmmmm??!

We have had a lot of people come to boot camp and not give it a full commitment.  Is it tough?  YES, it can be.  Is it worth it?  Hellz yeah it’s worth it!!

Weight loss is like a relationship.  It takes, and requires, focus, patience, sacrifice, dedication, passion and love.  Yes, I said love.

You have to actually love yourself enough to make the commitment.

You also have to love your exercise program. Hang on before you scoff.  I know y’all might not love boot camp, but you love the feeling, you love the group support, you may even love (but probably only like) my lame jokes.  You love the energy you feel after you have completed a tough workout.  If you don’t love your program you are going to break up, dissolve the plan and file it under irreconcilable differences.

So how do you fall in love with your exercise and nutrition program?

YOU WORK ON IT.  

YOU COMMIT TO IT.

YOU NURTURE IT.

Make adjustments daily. Focus on being better, not perfect, just better. Better = stronger, fitter, happier, committed!

Kim should have taken our commitment lessons to help her marriage.

  1. Who gives a flying leap what Kim K does in her life~not me! Yes, bootcamp is hard but think of how you feel once you’ve completed a session. I never compare myself to others because if I did, I’d never return. I challenge myself by running a little more~even though I’m slow. I just was able to do real jumping jacks and ski jumps last week (My own personal triumphs). I came home last night and was exhausted ( a combination of Sunday & Monday’s class & the time change) What a GREAT FEELING and accomplishment. I love bootcamp and try my best~ though some days are better than others I have made a committment to ME. Working around a family is not always easy but guess what I AM JUST AS IMPORTANT! I am most definitely on board for the Christmas Chrunch- count me in!!

  2. Count me in too! Saying that I’ve lost over the Christmas Season!!! That’s the best gift I could ever give myself, AND it’s soooo worth it!

  3. Ok so I am totally with you on loving the effects of the execise program…love the feeling after, love the support and love the group…and Carrie, I specially love the corky jokes- wouldn’t call them lame, just corky! 🙂

  4. I am in for Project Zero! We can all do it. We all work hard at boot camp.

    Don’t give up what you want the most(healthy, lean, slimmer body,more energy) for what you want at the moment (junk food) I just repeat this to myself when I get tempted. Loving boot camp!
