ok .... i thought i would share this all with you...
My new gym has the 2 sessions with a personal trainer free...I usually dont take gyms up on this but i wanted to see where iI am in the process of getting fit and healthy and keep going...
So today was the assesment spent 40 minutes with her asking and answering questions and setting some goals for me...
I told her i have a few things i can and cant do so .. my goals i told her i want a stronger core... get my hamstrings stronger... and i explained the when you do double knee lifts and try to travel left or right i cant move left or right.. so she wrote this all down...
so.. then we did the bmi crap aand the heartrate and pushup test(how many you can do in a minute)
So bmi i am 30% suppose to be around 26% ok i am not far off from that.. not gonna worry about it...the heart rate test on the treadmill.. i did excellent it climbed up nicely and the went even lover then my starting heart rate to recover after a minute.. so heart is healthy.... and the last thing was how many push ups can you do in a minute and you could top and start as much as you need to..... well my friends... I did 36 push ups in one minute and didnt stop once and I was stoked when she said in my age group most women cant even do 15 pushups and have to stop frequently too get there!!
So i see her one more time Aug21st and we workout together for an hour and she give me a plan on what to work on...
I will also share that once i get it :)
She said there are not many women in the club that is as hardcore as I am LOL... she says i see you at all the classes do you work out every day I said i do 13 classes a week and i do it in 5 days and take sat and sun day off :) Her eyes bugged ot she was like YOU really are hardcore lol... and with fibromyalgia to boot ... lol
So I want to thank each and everyone of you for encouranging me on.... you all motivate me to be my best.. and to put my best foot forward every day!! and I thank you fo rthat... I have had many accomplishments this past year and half and i have many more goals to smash by the years end... and togeher we will reach all our goals!!
Hugs and love!!
This is the kind of stuff l live for... the day you know you you are getting stronger and stronger... I am so glad I have changed gyms! ILove my Les mills teachers and the classes are pure torture and I love it!!! you see results quickly... and oe of them was tonight... I sang the whole song that played while we PLanked on our elbows and toes..... turned to a side plank held it ..went back to the center plank.held it.... then did the other side held it and back to center and held it to the end like it was nothing !!!! and that was after pushups and tricep push ups..... The weight is finally back to accurate with the ticker now... 5 more pounds to get back to the 50 pounds lost... minor set back... but i think with the hot weather (triple digits) and being on antiboitics to fight an infection in my molar that is being taken out monday and my body fighting a wasp sting on my toe (yes i fell apart right before 4th of july LOL) that my body just retained everything.. but i still went to my classes.. and fell over afterwards....... keep at it Stay strong.. you will accomplish the little things!!!Roar!
