Awesome Day Today
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
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!
