Revived

I met with Kristy, my student trainer, this morning because she decided I needed a new program. I forgot she reads my blog and so she found out that my eating hasn’t been going the best. She thought my workout should be amped up a bit so that I can start burning more calories. Plus, I think she thought I needed a little kick in the butt!

I liked her thinking.

We went over my program, which looked like it was going to be really awesome. However, I did notice there were quite a few squat-type exercises. Squat and do this, squat and do that. Squats, squats, squats! I even commented on it to her. "What’s with all the squats," I whined. In a very friendly, mild tone, Kristy said, "Well, they burn a lot of calories!" I accepted her answer with a smile.

After she was finished explaining everything to me, she left because she had to get to class. I started right in. OK, I didn’t. To tell the truth, I procrastinated for a bit, even taking a run out to Walmart…but it was to pick up a timer and a medicine ball for my workouts. So, the trip was needed. 

When I got back, after I fiddled on the computer for just a bit, I thought I better get started and so I went to it. Because it is Friday, I actually started Day 3 of my program. I LOVED IT!!!! Well, almost all of it. I had to do one-legged squats and my right leg creaked and cracked the whole time. Didn’t hurt, just sounded awful. All the rest of the exercises went really well. Oh, except I was little shaky on the side planks.

I was actually sweating when I got done, which was very cool because most of the time I do my strength training exercises, I don’t sweat – at least not that much. It wasn’t like the sweating I do when I run on the treadmill, but nonetheless, I was worn out, slightly sweaty and loving every minute of it.

I think I got my groove back. Thanks, Kristy. It was exactly what I need to get my motivation back! Now let’s see what the scale reads next Wednesday.
