How I Survived Zico’s “Banging Body Bootcamp”

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 1.22.18 PM.jpg

I am not known generally as a “morning person,” unless, of course, being a morning person means being irritable, slow, and angry at said morning. That’s why when I was invited to a bootcamp this morning at 8 AM, sponsored by ZICO chilled juices, I was like hellllll no.

After the jump, pics of our meal.
