Well the weekend is upon us again. We will be going to Sharbot Lake for three days and we can't wait. There is so much to do there, so I should get tons of exercise.
Took a break from the gym on Wednesday and I am not so sure it was a very good idea. Bottom line is that I managed to do thirty minutes and I had to stop. I wasn't out of breath, but my body felt like it was trying to work through tar. It was brutal. Colin says that I need to take a day off, but I hated the way i felt after. Doesn't bode well for when I get back to personal training on Monday!
So back to the gym tonight. I plan on trying to do my sixty minutes, plus some weights. But we have a lot to do before we leave tomorrow, so I have to be sure I don't hang out there all night chatting with Marlene! She is such a great distraction. I like knowing someone and having a "workout" buddy....well sort of. She runs and I do elliptical training.
Gotta go and try to eat lunch while the little buddy is playing. He is so CUTE!
Down 3.1 Pounds this week. Fabulous. And how I managed that with the Superbowl party, I will never know lol!
I have gone to the gym everyday this week and worked with Emma, my personal trainer every second day. I am currently doing 15 sets 2 reps of crunches x3 and working on the universal weight machines. And sixty minutes of cardio on the elliptical.
But today is a rest day. Connor is getting his needles today, so I am not going to get a chance to go. But that's ok, everyone needs to rest.
It is so cold. I am whipping up something healthy but suitable for today's weather for dinner. But shhhhh, it's a surprise!
Hello! I hope that everyone is feeling as great as I am this morning!
I have been to the gym everyday since I joined and it feels fabulous. I can't begin to tell you how great it feels to be exercising again. I didn't realize just how much I missed it. I also began my personal training sessions. My trainers name is Emma and she says that I am a very good student. So I am hoping that my next class on Saturday is good.
Last night I got a body composite done. Basically it sends a shock wave through your body and comes back with a whole bunch of information for you. So this is the verdict:
Weight-240.1 pounds (keep in mind, I had just worked out, was fully clothed with shoes and it was six at night! Normally I weigh myself naked, first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.) Fat - 101.1 Pounds Lean Muscle Mass - 54% Water - 43.3% BMI - 39
My water was lower than it should have been. It needed to be above 50%. So I have to drink more water! Like that is going to be possible......
The Biggest Loser Competition starts at the gym today. Tomorrow I go in to have my measurements taken. The person that has lost the most at the beginning of April WINS! So I am more than determined to do it.
