Meeting with my trainer

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

My zumba instructor is a personal trainer. I feel like she has become my therapist. Poor woman! I usually see her about 4 x a year just for a little check in, she does a fitness assessment to see where I am at cardiovascular wise, strength (push ups) and flexibility wise too. She also weighs and measures me. I am usually looking forward to seeing my progress. That came to a screeching halt this summer and my progress has stopped and gone backwards over the fall and winter. It really sucks! I have really been trying to figure out what is going on. I know I am not tracking my points like I used to. I have been winging it. I haven't been as consistent with my activity. I am in a lot better place than I was a couple of years ago for sure but I am not happy where I am at now. I want to lose more weight so my knees don't hurt and so I am not so out of breath at certain times. I am sure my heart would appreciate being at a better more healthy weight.

So I am doing this for me. I need to lose this weight and be done with that part of my life. I need to eat great foods- fruits and veggies, lean protein and whole grains. I like eating that way. Yes, I can have a treat now and then just not every day and at every meal. I love being active. Today I did a zumba class this morning and then this afternoon I took my dog on a nice walk in the woods at the trail on my street. It is so peaceful up there. I want to do that every day!

I have decided that I am going to have Angela weigh me in every week. We will talk about the week and make some small goals and build up a spark! This week I am going to track everything and measure everything. As Angela said the battle is done in the kitchen! I am also going to class 5 x this week. If I miss one I need to make it up at another time.

So that's the plan!

    My rule of thumb is this, there are 7 days a week, and if you can commit to three of them, you're golden. However, i am a gym junkie so I prefer to go at least 4 days for 1 1/2 - 2hours each time. I also like to walk with the kids at the park so, that's a little extra right there. Anyway, you can do this! and there is so much out there and always try new things to keep it interesting! Good luck!
