Week 2… Well it’s been a tough week on my journey from Fat To Fit especially food wise as there have been birthday celebrations and there was a bit, well maybe more than a bit of cake going round. So eating wise hasn’t really been great this week and when you’re wanting to lose weight diet is 90% the key to losing it.
Have there been trips to the gym, there sure has. Armed with a new playlist on my iPod which I want to thank you for the suggestions for, it’s been fab although I do find I have to stop myself from singing out loud. I found myself dancing a little while on the treadmill when a song came on. I quickly realised what I was doing and stopped and had a little chuckle to myself. Maybe I should book myself in to the Zumba class next week.
I have noticed that I am able to do more at the gym and for longer which is great and showing that my fitness has improved a little since starting back at the gym. Which I am really happy about.
My gym has also started doing personal training sessions and are running taster sessions. I have thought about using a personal trainer but the cost comes into it, it’s not cheap. I booked a taster to see what it would be like. I went along and was met by a really nice guy, he filled out a form and asked about my goals, I felt a bit nervous when I told him about how much I wanted to lose. Thinking he would judge me or something, even though I know he wasn’t thinking that.
With forms filled in we had a quick warm up with some cardio and then some leg weights to loosen my legs. He bought over some equipment that I had never used before so I was a little nervous and also nervous that I wouldn’t be able to do what he wanted me to do. We used a bar with weights on I quite liked this one, he said I had good form. We also did some kettle bell work and then ropes which looked like fun but oh my it was hard. Heres a video I found on YouTube to give you and idea.
We put all the bit together and did a circuit and OH MY! it was hard and got the heart pounding, my legs were shaking at one point but I got nothing but positivity and encouragement from the PT when I was finding it hard he was like come on just 2 more. I even got to use a power plate to do some of the work out on. If you don’t know what a power plate is here’s a video.
Now I loved the power plate but it vibrates the whole body and I think I had drunk a bit too much water and felt like it was bubbling away inside me.
Over all I really enjoyed the PT session I just need to decide if I want to go down the route of having a PT to help me or just do it by myself.. Do you have any experience of using a PT???
I took this photo as I came out of the gym and was sat in the car it was getting dark.
This a good work out face, I found hard to drive home as my legs we well worked and felt a bit like jelly, so changing gear was a bit iffy haha.
So my goals for this week is to fit the gym in now that I am back at work and to look more at what I’m eating and to make sure I take on more water.
I’m open to any tips on food or exercises, leave them in the comments below.
