Today I had my first of 4 personal training sessions. The point of the sessions are to get me to lift heavier weight. So today we focused just on upper body. We did some warm up sets with lighter weights and then kept going up until I got to a weight where I can do 8-12 reps. So I needed to max out at 12 but it was OK if I maxed out at 8 reps. There were a few times that my arms got weak and I didn't think that I was going to make it through. The next time I hit the gym, I'm supposed to start at the heavy weight. I think that will make a difference because the time I got to the heavy weight my muscles were already fatigued.
As for the long Labor Day weekend, I was doing great with my food choices until we had a family BBQ. I'm happy to report that my WI I was up only 0.2lbs but then on Thursday I was down 0.8lbs. That was the first time in a long time that the scale was lower on Thursday.
I'm happy to report that I've run 3 days in a row. The weather has been so beautiful here that I can even run at noon time.
Until next week, my goal is to get back to 149lbs before the start of BLC23.
