Weight Training

Sunday, April 26, 2009

Today is Sunday April 26, 2009 this is my very first blog so I'm not sure where to start.
Well as of Monday April 20, I have been weight training with a friend from high school and her trainer. I have been doing the same routine for the last few months with no new results including weight loss and it was just getting old so I thought I would try something new.
The first day I was really scared that i would not be able to really lift or do anything. I would always use the elliptical, tread mill and bike downstairs cause I was too shy and didn't think I belonged upstairs with the free weights. Oh how I was soo wrong. I lifted lots of things and done a lot more of things I never realized I could actually do with no problems, of course the next day I was very sore but I kept going working different muscle groups of course and each day I was a little sore however it was a good sore crazy yes I know but it gave me a sense of accomplishment NO PAIN NO GAIN.
I have been going everyday with them except Saturday which was really scary for me, so I went to the ymca as usual and done my cardio and when it was time to go upstairs I just went with no hesitation. Yeah I was a little nervous that I wouldn't know what to do but when I opened the door to the free weight room and seen nobody was there but me I just took a bite out of my protein bar, turned up my Mp3 player, took a big drink of my water, and went at it doing everything I had learned in just the short week prior.
Before I knew it the time had passed so quickly, I had been there for 2hrs. all by my self and yes I did everything I had learned and then some things I had seen some other members doing that I wanted to try when I was by myself just in case I looked crazy doing
I am sooo proud of my self and I can't wait to tell my friend and my trainer.

One of the most important things I have noticed this week is my muscles are actually showing already in just 1 week of working out and I have lost 3 lbs.....I can't wait to see what muscles will be showing up next week!!
