Loving Life!!!

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Exercise makes me really excited about life!!! Today I met with one of the Trainers at the gym for an orientation. ( I have belonged to the gym for forever, have paid for it every month and have only gone sporadically). He kicked my butt. Today was part I, cardio. I actually loved it... He pushed me so hard on the elliptical machine (it wasn't actually the elliptical but something like one) and I had fun... Then we went to the treadmill which was boring and onto the recumbent bike which I thought would be easy but was really difficult. I did 15 minutes on each machine and there were times I thought I couldn't do it anymore but I did it!!! I finished with some stretching!!!
I made an appointment for Part II, weights for June 1st... Since Monday is a holiday it crowded his schedule for Tuesday. So I need to wait for Wednesday. He is having me warm up on the elliptical before heading downstairs to the weight room for some more fun!!! I am really looking forward to this!!!
My meal plan is coming along pretty well... I have become addicted to whey protein shakes... I read an article that you can add cooked oatmeal to them with almond milk ( i don't drink milk) and fruit ( I use blackberries) and I also add colon cleanse... I am going to try the oatmeal tonight, but if anyone has tried it with the oatmeal please let me know... don't forget the ice cubes to really make it a smoothie... other ideas are peanut butter, frozen bananas, low fat yogurt and any flavor whey protein mix. (i buy it at Wal Mart for less than 15 dollars for a month's worth)
I believe that since I am doing all of the right things... I have begun to believe in myself and have been "Loving Life" and really feel that I can reach the goal that my doctor has set for me... Exercise four days in a row really has helped my attitude and getting rid of the toxins in my body by eating healthy really makes me believe that I am on the right road to my goal!!!
So now I will continue to exercise, eat right and keep a positive attitude as I work toward my goal!!!
