When I changed my status to "CeeGee is really back this time," I had no idea what I was in for. Part of my new commitment was to join a gym. Saturday was my first appointment with a personal trainer. He is a really nice young man, previous college football player, and is still extremely fit! Saturday he showed me the type of workout I was going to be doing. All of the exercises are for my core. They didn't seem too difficult, but I was still stiff in a few unusual places on Sunday. Today, Monday, I was back for another personal training session. Oh my goodness, all those exercises that didn't seem too difficult, completely wiped me out. It was a bit embarrassing. I was sweating profusely. and I do mean profusely. My hair was drenched, from the top of my head to dripping off the ends. I honestly don't think I have ever sweat that much. I was rolling around on the floor, practically grunting as I struggled to do a few leg lifts. When I finally staggered into the locker room and looked in the mirror, I was really taken aback. My face was so red, it looked like I was about to explode. How humiliating. It all just goes to show me how badly out of shape I am. I am determined to keep this up and get stronger and more fit. It helps having a personal trainer there telling me what to do, correcting my posture, and not letting me give up. I bought a package of 8 personal training sessions. I know I won't be done at that point, so I hope that I will be able to afford more sessions.
It was a good feeling to exert myself to such an extent.
