Today completed 6.5 mins on elliptical (remember that I add another 30 secs each time) - did not need to push myself to stay the time, that being said I worked hard but not to the point of pushing past my limit!! This is HUGE for me!
Tried to do a push up today with my trainer! Hilarious! Could not even do one - does half count?? I told her that I do the SP wall push ups, so that is what we did, she is sure that eventually I will have the strength for floor ones, but for now I am happy with the wall :) She showed me how to do narrow wall push ups and ohhhhh! I felt the difference.
Tried some chest presses today too! My trainer was right there helping me! Have I mentioned how much I love her??!! She knows just what I need and she is so supportive! She is always coming up with new ways for me to workout, I love the variety!
Ended with 10mins on treadmill, then 3 mins cool down. Did great! Sweat was dripping from my hair! But I did it!!! Was not too hard either :) Kayla (my trainer) was thrilled with my progress and said that 2 weeks ago I could not of done this!
Also when I was exercising, she said that she saw my bicep for the first time!!
Had a great workout with my trainer today! Started with beating my record on the elliptical! For those that have been following my training sessions, I had been struggling to get one min on the elliptical! That first time I pushed myself to 5 mins, but was really done at 1 min! Well today I easily did 3.5 mins and my goal was 6 mins :) Each time I am trying to increase by 30 seconds
After that I worked with my trainer for an hour, working with weights, medicine ball finishing up with jumping jacks with the medicine ball and step ups.
Then when I got home, I decided to do some squats and lunges! Crazy, I know! Lately I am turning everything into an exercise, I think I am addicted! My butt already is feeling it!
I am away working, I have limited internet access when I am away and it makes me miss all my SP buddies!
I am feeling so saddened by the death of the hotshots in the AZ fire. I am from a small town and our hotshots are back from a fire but then are heading off to this deadly fire! I have a friend that is a hotshot so we are all feeling a little apprehensive, therefore I am asking for prayer for all the firefighters out there fighting wild fires all over.
I will be back home on Wednesday and am looking forward to being able to spark properly!
