I had my first private session with my new trainer tonight. I really like him. He explains each exercise and is really firm on making sure of the right form. He is very encouraging. I talked with him a little after the session about what I have been doing and my frustrations. He said with my low thyroid I shouldn't get my heart rate above 130 and he preferred it @125. My old trainer always wanted me between 140-150 and many times I pushed it a little higher because I thought it would help me burn the fat. I might have been overtraining -- Maybe that is why I hit the wall last Fall - I don't know.
Another thing he strongly suggested was to do my cardio first thing in the morning or since I work out in the afternoon to only eat a light lunch of just protein -- both times are when my blood sugar is at the lowest and exercising then will burn more fat. Then after exercise have some carbs. He had a client before that had a low thyroid and wasn't losing weight until she started to do that. I am going to start that tomorrow.
I started working on sorting out our 2003 pictures and memorabilia to get ready to put in an album. One goal I have this year is to get caught up to the present with all our pictures. One year a month and I will get it done.
