Friday Fitness

Extremely depressing evaluation at the fitnesss training session. I’ve gained weight and inches! I have a bodyfat percentage of 31. That is way too high. I definitely need to get serious. This is not healthy.

The workout was intense. My legs were  quivering at the end. I thought it would be my arms that would be sore but they did okay. We worked with free weights, machines, medicine balls and exercise balls.

We talked a little bit about nutrition and will be getting a diet plan to follow next week. The sample plan doesn’t look very good. No ice cream or chocolate! How will I survive without my sugar??

There are 2 other women – one who has been going to the gym for awhile and one who did this fitness session once before. Lisa. our trainer, is very good about individualizing the exercises for our different abilities.

Hopefully I’ll be less sore next week and see some progress on the scale.

Fitness Friday

Another week of the same. No movement on the scale, a little walking, no exercising and too much junk food. But there is only one more week of this because I did it – I registered for the course at the gym.

 I will start strength training on November 7th. 2 mornings a week for 4 weeks. I hope I don’t embarass myself too much. Working out with weights has never been a big draw for me but I need to do something and the price is right.

Since it is the last Friday of the month, I took my measurements. There was a quarter of an inch difference in a couple of spots. Hopefully there will be more this time next month. I just keep thinking “baby steps” and push onward. Eventually I will get there.

see you next time
