OHS Day 5: Week 2 Begins (Ryno)

Ryno finally seems to have figured out his body clock and a workable routine that led to his best workout of Boot Camp, so far. If you have trouble eating before a workout, maybe you should do like Ryno and hold off on eating(only hydrate well) before working out.

OHS Day 5: What’s golf got to do with it? (Dawn)

Coach Kilgore is pretty sneaky. He’s been training us using movements that we use in everyday life. It became clear to me last week as I played in a golf tournament for Millsaps College. Today was also not just #MotivationMonday, it was #MotownMonday  

OHS Day 4: Last Day of Week 1 (Ryno)

Ryno survived the first week of Boot Camp, and after getting a full night’s rest, he had a better time of the workout this morning. That didn’t stop him from losing out to Dawn in the Cardio Competition, and his attempt at a little “smack talk” fell short of the mark.

OHS Day 3: Sleep is important (Ryno)

OHS Day 2: Little by little (Dawn)

Nothing is more frustrating when you’re trying to get in shape than seeing those reality shows or fitness magazines where people have these ridiculous 12-pack abs. They didn’t get that way overnight… it took time. And when starting something like this, you must make peace with the fact that you get healthier, one step at … Continue reading “OHS Day 2: Little by little (Dawn)”

OHS Day 1: Getting Started (Dawn)

Day one of the fitness portion of Operation: Healthy State was a little rough. Coach Kilgore wanted to give us an “easy” workout, but as you might imagine – after months of inactivity, “easy” is a relative term. It was challenging simply because you’re using your own body weight against you. But for your #MotivationMonday … Continue reading “OHS Day 1: Getting Started (Dawn)”
