I arrived at the gym around 9:45 ish and of course, I bumped into my trainer, Yeah, I absolutely was trying to hide from him. Well he started me off with the elliptical great so he noticed that it was to easy for me. I got off and we waited for like 20 minutes for him to check my resting heart rate before it was 144 low and high 166. He said he could change me but he wants me to remain within these realms. So we decided to play around with the elliptical, fine, so we up the resistance to about 80, I believe that is all it would go and we did and inclince of 20. Great just what I needed cause this made me lift my legs up higher and I just went to work. Instead of 60 minutes I ended up staying on the Elleptical for 95 minutes which included the cool down. I didn't even realize I did that...wow. So we move onto the strenght training and right away he notice that I have gain great strength in my legs. I am now lifting 55 pounds on the leg curl and extension way to go for me. I still feel the burn but I am now able to work through that burn and get at least 3 sets in before I rest and restart. I move on to the seated press extension, I am now lifting 75/80 pounds with my legs, I was amazed myself at how I was able to perform my goals with out being weak, I notice the difference from when I first started and how I have developed now. My arms are now firm and not flabby. I can actually see the cuts and the MUSCLES...YAY, this is awesome. I finished my circuit for Strenght Training, I now move to the treadmill, I was reading a SP article about treadmills and how to burn 500 calories, oh boy, did the incline and the speed interval work, I ran and jogged on the treadmill for 95 minutes including the cool down and boy was my trainer surprised at my performance. I was too. I didn't know what the hell have overcome me, I wasn't tired. I took in plenty of water, and had a few pieces of fruit with me. I then now go and get on the Abdominal Rotation and did a set of 5 /12 reps and I continue to focus on the Abs for a while. I then moved to the Stationary bike where I also did 95 minutes including a cool down. I was on a roll. I was doing so much today that I had to finally leave the gym because I smelt like who done it and why they killed it. I was very energetic and I walked home from the gym. I had a lot of energy today and I burned a total of 8510 calories, my all time best and my trainer told me to go home because I was trying to sign up for an abdominal class and a 30 minute circuit class. He literally put me out of the gym and told me he will see me tomorrow. I really don't know what was going on with me. I am not SORE, I am full of energy right now. I did not take anything but a multivitamin and my meal replacement. I had an awesome day. I challenged myself to the core and I prevailed and I am PROUD OF MYSELF. My motivation is REAL and NO ONE CAN TAKE THIS FROM ME!!! I had an awesome day today! I ROCK!

I was on the elliptical minding my business because I like to tune everyone out and just jam to my music..anyone this lady came beside me and started to use the elliptical next to me, I was like cool, she kept nugging me asking how to operate the machine, fine, I helped her as I still continue to pedal my way through my workout.
The lady says to me oh you only burned 239 Calories, you're not doing nothing. At this point I was already on the elliptical for about 5 minutes burning 239 calories in 5 minutes is excellent. I was doing a workout on my elliptical that my trainer showed me how to program so I would flip back and forth to a resistance of 40/80 which was awesome, it was a challenge.
I looked over and this lady was doing nothing but pushing the machine, no resistance and on level 0 so of course if you are not training then you can push an elliptical anyway you want; unfortunately, I'm training so your 500 calories with no resistance is great.
So this lady continued on with her negativity about my incompetence on the elliptical, I started to get annoyed with her, but I ended up pushing further and harder with my routine and at the end of my routine I prevailed because I did what I was instructed to do by my trainer and she got off and got on the treadmill and by all means she got slapped by this lady and I walked away and just looked and shake my head and said "Do unto to others as you want others to do onto you".
The moral of this is that you will have negativity everywhere, and it is up to you to ignore or engage. I chose to help ignore and not engage. I know what I was there for and I did what I was suppose to do and that is what I did.
Whoooo Hoooo for me.

Well I am married, and this is a choice that I made. I often feel now that I have made the wrong choice. My husband is very vial and nasty with his mouth. He feels that I must do as he say and not have a voice. I support him the best way that I possibly can and that is never good enough. I often wonder when will I ever get support. Last night, I finally realized that I would not get any support from him. We had a very heated argument over the phone and I hung up on him and turned off my phone. Do I regret what I have done!! Excuse my expression "HELL NO!" I don't. He must realize that it's not a choice for me to be in his corner. It's not an obligation; it's because I want to. I must say that I went to be feeling really upset, but woke up this morning feeling ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! I get tired of being walked all over. I take care of the kids, clean the house, pay the bills, make sure everyone is OKAY! and I have to hear from my husband all the time oh somebody said you said this and that and this. I'm to old for this. I don't have a life and now I will because I see that I needed to set myself free and do something for me. He is upset because I am going to the gym. Since I started January 2, 2013, I have lost 8 pounds; this is due to my hard work and dedication, not because of his support. The more he ridicules me the more MOTIVATION is set forth for me to prove to myself that I can do it. I realize that I don't need a man in my life like that. He has his own issues in which, I have been so supportive of and now Springbaby has broken free from the CHAINS and NEGATIVITY. I know marriage is a union where disagreement go ups and downs; but I'm NO ONE'S DOOR MAT!

I am a person who likes to be alone and stay away from problematic situations. I know people who like to put people down because of their weight or how they look. I feel that is very horrible. I knew at some point I would have to lose some weight but I had to be ready not because of someone wanting me to be ready or pushing me. My feelings were often hurt and I had to deal with my problems on my own. I realized that I had to make a change. I looked at myself from within and I decided to change and I am happy that I have made the first step.
