I've been working out with a small group of ladies and its has been little over a month now. In my group, It's only me and 2 other ladies, and a fantastic trainer. So far our trainer is working us pretty good. I like the style of her exercise regiment and program for us. She focuses on strength training and some cardio in between. It's like a circuit style work out which strength our muscle and burning fat calories same time. She is also teaching us the proper forms and how to do it, how much we should do it. Also she talks about nutrition value and healthy eating suggestions at the end of work out. Since I've lost 60 pounds on my weight with in a year or so, I really needed to get better for my Strength training, so I can tightening up some loose skin and get firmer and healthy looking body. But the same time, it was my weakest exercise of all. I always said in the past, I'll do my best for my ST. But never happened.
First, I wasn't sure if I am doing right and also didn't like the feel of muscle burned. I felt as pain in my muscle. And I couldn't seems tolerated it. But I now believe "No pain, No gain." And since I've started working out with this group, I've been doing my ST in the morning and the evening as well almost every day. This is a part of the assignment we were told to do. I'll be with them exercising next month and a half or so an hour each time in the gym for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I was so lucky to be selected with this project which suggest a healthy diet and exercise, plus a garment and special stimulation cream for trying out this program. There were 2 groups to be chosen. One with healthy eating with exercise and one with out exercise. I was selected with exercise group. This project has given us a week worth of sample menu and organic grocery foods to started off. They like me to follow healthy life style, which is no problem as I've already eating healthy, doing regular exercise and living healthy life style.
I am happy they've chosen me out of many applicants and that they've given me this opportunity for me to work extra hard. The free gym membership and a trainer to work with in the duration of this project is a true benefit for me. At the moment, I am focusing on my legs, thighs and butt. I really hope to get some good results while working out with this group. Matter fact, I've already seen and feel my muscle is getting firmer and I like my personal ST session in the morning and evening. Now, I actually enjoy doing my ST as part of my daily life rather then painful ordeal or chore. This is very different and for me, it is a progress. I have "Taking action and so glad I did." I am very excited for this experience. And for sure, giving me a boost I needed. I have few lessons learned, "When opportunity knock the door, you can not be hesitate it. You've got to jump on it." "Sometime you must push yourself from your comfort zone." "To get different result, do something different." (*^^*)
And last but not least, "You can't out exercise a bad diet." I've been working out doing my ST till the point I like it, but this past week I've kinda fell off the wagon with emotional stressful reason and also with friends birthday party. I felt sabotaging myself with few bad diets. To appreciate and get maximum benefit of my hard work, I must learn to control my emotions with out extra calories or foods I know I should not have to jeopardize my efforts.
I've learned these lessons and ready to move forwards. Keep up the keeping on!!
