You get me after two fairly solid workouts with my trainer! Holy cramole… I was sore after the first day. Like I waddled around because I had angry angry thighs!
My first workout was setting the bar and seeing where I was at in lifting. Yesterday we bumped it up a notch.
I told my trainer on my sign up sheet that I wanted to get into lifting weights again. Once I met him and explained that I lifted in high school, he understood. He’s given me two decent workouts where we spend about 10 minutes warming up, 40-50 minutes of weights, and about 10-15 minutes cooling down.
After the first day my arms and legs were jello but… I forgot how satisfying I found lifting weights. Even more so, on my second workout, we bumped up from 10lb dumbbells to 15lb and used a 20lb at one point! Ok, if you’re healthy, that is probably not that impressive but I set a goal on day one. By the time we have our last workout in December, I want to be able to curl the 35lb dumbbell at least once on each arm. Mainly because I want to prove to myself that I can.
In my mind – after only 2 workouts mind you, I see him as sort of a guide in getting my lifting groove back. I needed that push to walk with me into the gym, and into the weight room. I’m surprised that so far, only 2 times, I’ve been the only girl in the weight room. Thats silly! But I don’t mind hanging out with the boys – we are all there to accomplish the same things. Kick some ass!
I’ve also been battling a stupid head cold from Thursday-today. That really sucks the life out of me but I’m battling thru it and resting when I can.
As far as weight goes, for the first time in a few weeks, my weight stayed pretty much the same! I’m hoping that sweating my butt off twice a week doing weights will help put me back on a weight loss track. I’m also focusing more on eating in, and eating smarter, instead of eating out so much.
I hope you have a fantastic week loves, and I can’t wait to see how I feel next Tuesday night after my 4th workout! xo
