Personal trainer

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Well I signed up for 5 x 30 min sessions with the girl who takes my Body Combat class as there was a half price deal on.
Went yesterday for consultation/goal setting meeting.
Took my food diary for the week. Unsurprisingly came to conclusion I don't consume enough calories for the amount of exercise I do. Also though my diet low in fat it's high in sugar. This results in peaks and lows in my energy levels during the day. And affecting my sleep patterns. Falling asleep quickly but waking up several times during night and waking up consistently hours before my alarm goes off at 6.15am. Also I need to increase my protein.
So I'm off to the grocery store for some provisions. Almonds, chickpeas, quinoa, fat free Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, no sugar added peanut butter and unsweetened almond milk.
I've been eating the same set of meals for 2 years in my journey and I'm stuck in a rut food wise.
Start the exercise sessions next Saturday. To firm up my tummy and thighs going to do resistance weight stuff and interval training.
Excited to be changing things up and hopefully feeling better by 11th July when I jet off to USA for my friend's wedding.

    I pretty much eat the same thing everyday too. I had a personal trainer for a while, I was pretty disappointed with it and found I could do as good on my own, for free. Hopefully you will have better luck with it than I did.

    I tend to eat the same meals for breakfast and lunch almost everyday. Try adding chia seeds into the mix as well- complete protein with Omega-3 fats and they keep you full and helps with hydration.

    me too.. If you are interested in food then tracking is needed. If your diet is balanced and tolerable. it seems that just accepting it works... (I see this in other successful people here) .. I get quality of life out of things that are not is after all only fuel..
