2nd Personal Trainer workout...

Friday, March 11, 2011

I just realized that I hadn't posted a blog since my last personal trainer workout... so I figured what better time than now to write another one about the same thing.

Over the weekend, I hit the gym w/ my son and "re-created" the workout that she had me do last week at my first session. Even without her supervision, I managed to get in another really good workout!

So, today I had my second session w/ her, and she totally changed up my routine... which pushed my body even farther than last week. I found muscles that I didn't even realize I had! LoL She threw in a couple that would strengthen my inner thigh muscles, which have been extremely weak since my hip surgery. I'm hoping to hit the gym again this weekend and "repeat" this week's workout.

Again... I just have to tell anyone who is even contemplating a personal trainer to "just do it"... you won't regret it! (well, you might right afterwards when you're kinda sore, but that goes away pretty quickly! LoL)

Oh... and while I'm blogging... let me just throw out that after my last reported weigh-in, I had bounced back into the 200's and I was hoping it was sodium-related... BUT, today I'm happy to report that I'm back down to 199.3... WooHoo!!!

    I'm glad your workouts with your personal trainer are going well! I had a bad experience with the one personal trainer I ever used. Perhaps I should reconsider and try it again.

    Way to go!

    Congratulations on being able to recreate your workout! Being able to absorb and remember all the information you get from your trainer is more than half the battle.

    Hoping your scale is now ready to stay in One-derland.
