NOTHING can ever prepare you for a session with a personal trainer. NOTHING. My arms feel dead and useless. When I got home and took a shower they’d tremble as I washed my upper body. I’m getting my trainer to do a meal plan for me to help me to be more disciplined, so I have to do a food journal for a week so she sees how I eat as well as a list of what I don’t eat. I’m going to do a list of what I actually eat as it’s easier than what I don’t eat – I’m a very picky eater. The good thing about the gym though is I drink way more water throughout the day when I’m going regularly than usual. *yay*
I think I’ll head there tomorrow just to hop on the elliptical for half an hour and then we have another session Saturday morning, the one that proceeds go to a charity. I was excited that I’ll be getting back in shape but I am in no way excited about the workouts that I will be doing. My husband will be training with me (*happy dance*) and this morning we really got it going. The friendly competition definitely adds a little fun to it.
Since I don’t use my mp3 player when I’m with a trainer I’m going to use it when I’m working out on my own. It’s good to have music that gets you going. When we were warming up on the treadmills this morning, we heard Take Over Control and it was very hard not to try to dance while walking/running when the beat was just coursing through us lol. I wasn’t about to fall though so I kept some slight head movements going so I didn’t lose balance :D.
Well that is just a little update. I’m praying we don’t do legs on Saturday as I can’t afford to have jelly legs all weekend. Will let you know how the event goes :).
