|Old me vs New me|
Now onto other things...........
I had my first personal training session this weekend! WOW what an eye opener!! That's pretty much how I would sum up my first session. Let's first start by saying how excited I was to start with Trish! That is the AMAZING Wednesday night zumba instructor that I alwayssssss rave about. I love her!!! She is so damn awesome. I was super excited to start with her because I knew she would be an amazing trainer...and she is/was! We met at the gym at 11am Saturday morning. I was pumped. Everything started out great. Just talking about my background and my goals. We started a warmup on the treadmill and then went into an empty aerobics room. This is where the nightmare started hahaha.
Back story: YES I have been working out consistently (minus when I had surgery and stuff) for the past 2.5 years. So even though I weigh like 270lbs...I am in fair shape for my size. However, I do not really weight train. I do a few machines when I'm at the gym but def not anything like weight cardio stuff. And that is what killllled me Saturday. Like using the stepper with 10lb weights and doing circuit training with different weight cardio activities. I had to stop a few times because I felt nauseous. So embarrassing. My trainer is so awesome and she kept encouraging me saying the first time is the hardest but I was still really ashamed. I couldn't even do a sit up. Like...I wanted to cry I was so ashamed of myself about that. It was totally embarrassing and awful. It is def motivation to keep trying and try harder. It was def an eye opener as to how badly I suck and how out of shape I am. Sad. :( But...everyone has to start somewhere I guess. I am really looking forward to this weeks session! Prob on Saturday. I am so glad I started up with this trainer. She is amazing.....
This is exactly why I wanted her and only her to train me. She cares about the people she trains. She doesn't look at me as a "job". She wants me to succeed. Just this post workout text made me feel so great! I see other trainers at the gym and they are always on their phones or talking to other people while they are training with clients. I didn't want that. I wanted someone to actually care about my progress and be there for me as support and help me on this journey. I def found that in Trish! So excited! Love her!

It was a pretty good workout week last week but I am not going to weigh in for a few days. I plan on going to the gym more often now...maybe 5 days a week instead of 4. I want this so bad and now that I have the extra help I am even more determined to get results.
P.s.- My whole body hurts SO bad! I can barely move...lol. But I'm still going to the gym tonight!!! yesssss
