My group personal training new session started on Tuesday. Because of illnesses I had to miss the last one, so it's been five weeks since I did a gym workout.
I was honestly pretty nervous that everyone would be way more advanced now, that I wouldn't be able to keep up, etc. Sometimes I get anxious about thing I shouldn't be. I put that aside and was like, even if they are all way better than me now, and I weaker and less healthy than I was before, that's even MORE reason to go back now.
I'm proud of being able to do that. :)
It turned out, there was actually one person I recognized in the class! Beyond him, there was one girl who took it last session, and then three brand new people, who are actually clearly VERY new to the concept of working out at all, so they will be needing a lot of help to get started.
SO, my fears were not very founded, it turned out. What he ended up doing was basically splitting us into two groups, the new people in one, the three of us in the other. We didn't need much instruction so we basically were able to work on our own and go a lot faster. That was nice. Since I hadn't worked out in so long I could see that it was plenty challenging enough to use smaller weights than I would have in the past.
Everything is a good workout again, lol.
I'll tell you what, it was all lower body work out, and I am SO. FREAKING. SORE.
I knew I would be, its inevitable after a long break that I get super sore the first time, and this is seriously no exception. It's hard to sit down, lol!!!
Today will be the second day and it will be upper body.
In other news,
Things with my brother have been a little stressful for me. He's acting pretty crazy with trying to talk to girls wherever we go. Beyond the annoyance factor, it's pretty clear this is a type of reaction to this life crisis, I just wish he could take a MINUTE....
And, he asked me how I'd feel about him approaching my friends to date, and I was like, um well, the issue is that you aren't actually trying to DATE anyone at all right now, he's just like, on a rampage. In no way would he be looking for a relationship....
So, I worry this is causing strain between us.
In HAPPIER news, tomorrow we are having a dinner for my grandfather's 80th birthday. I had been very excited because I was going to make my favorite dish, but it was decided that it didn't go with the paella, so it got nixed. I was very disappointed about that but I've moved on.
Afterward we have a karaoke set up with our friends.
I'm really looking forward to Saturday because we are finally going to use a groupon that I bought to used around my birthday, but keeps getting postponed to this really fancy and delicious restaurant in town.
FANCY DATE NIGHT!!! :D
Okay, so none of those weekend plans are low cal/healthy persay, but I'm very excited for all of it, and I'm gonna keep on keepin' on! :D
