It takes a village.....

......to help Katie lose weight!!!! Thanks to all for the spark support!!!! I worked with my trainer Friday night and it was amazing! He started working on HIIT with me.... High Intensity Interval Training. Basically he would boost my bpm in intervals. So I would walk for 20 seconds, run for 20 seconds, walk for 20 seconds etc. I did that for 25 minutes!!! I couldn't believe it because I was getting over a cold... Not to mention the fact that I have never been a runner at all! It felt so good. Then I did a series of "burn out" sets that included abs, squats, toe taps, jumping jacks etc. He kept my heart rate up for the entire hour!

He also gave me a diet. It was really interesting because the foods he wants me to eat varies depending on whether the day is a HIIT workout day, or a "low intensity" workout day (walking, slow jog, biking etc.) On the HIIT I deplete my body of all starchy carbs and stick to lean proteins for the most part. On the low intensity days I can eat more healthy carbs. He also told me that "whole grain" is way better than "whole wheat." Of course I had no idea!

So now I feel like the last piece of the puzzel is in place, a healthy diet with a purpose! Can't wait to weigh myself (going to wait a week until my cycle is over). Once again thanks to spark people for keeping me motivated and keeping me positive!!! emoticon
