Okay, so I had my first session with a trainer yesterday. It hurtsssssssss. Didn’t hurt yesterday at ALL. Left the gym feeling a little tired but otherwise feeling great. Was thinking to myself, psht…maybe this will be easier than I thought. I now hurt in places I frankly never knew were there. For instance, there are actually muscles on the top part of the back of my leg…wwwhhaaaattttt? It’s not unbearable, but noticeable. Ibuprofen is at the top of my gratitude list today. I was actually dreading going yesterday, not because of the activity but I knew they were going to try to sell me a training package and I was right about this. However, the more I thought about it, the more I decided that ya know, maybe I need it. I mean, really I’m not an activity guru at all unless making mac-n-cheese has made olympic level. I also thought, if I half-ass this thing, I’m going to get half-ass results. So, we started out with a once a month plan with a trainer. Then after I quit smoking (oh yeah, I smoke too…talk about a pillar of health here), bump it up to twice a month. I am limited by income, so there is that and beating myself up over that is pointless. We talked about diet, portion control (what’s that?). What IS that anyway? Portion control always meant for me, um how much is left?
We did do a basline body fat percentage. I’m not going to share the results just yet. It’s not that I’m ashamed of it or anything. It’s just that my next appointment is on Wednesday and they are actually going to measure my body…so I’m going to post all the numbers at the same time. I was kind of upset that they are waiting a week to do the body measurements as I am thinking….a whole week?!?!? I’m gonna lose several inches by then. And then my RATIONAL part of my mind goes…”bahahahahaha”! The only inches I’ll lose will be if I cut my hair. No gym today, but on schedule to go back tomorrow for straight cardio.
