I have a personal trainer!
Okay, so we all know that I'm on a quest to lose weight. Well, my sister just happens to be in the midst of a career change from RN to personal trainer. So I thought "Hmmmm" and approached her with an idea. You be my personal trainer for free and I'll be your study guide/guinea pig. I didn't think she'd agree, but she jumped on it, so that's cool.
She had me log my food for a week and today came over and went over some changes I need to make. Evidently, I was throwing my body into starvation mode, because I wasn't eating enough calories. I thought that I was doing the right thing, but I guess not. She also gave me some ideas for meals and ways to up my protein, because I wasn't getting enough.
So basically, I can have more calories and I can eat peanut butter. Score points for this fat girl.
After that, she gave me my workout plan. She's taking it easy on me because I'm so out of shape. Upper body, lower body and core. In 3 months, we will re-evaluate my strength and bump it if needed. But my 3 month goal is to lose 12 pounds.
I think I can do that. In addition to eating more calories and things and my workouts, I'll also still be walking a mile or so every day, doing Zumba on Thursdays (so long as baseball and softball for the kids doesn't interfere), and I'm trying to work in some yoga. I think I got this licked....I can TOTALLY do this.
Evidently my weight loss is already showing, although I don't see it. I'll let you judge.
Both my sister and my husband has said they can tell a difference. I'm not sure, but whatever.
Tomorrow, I weigh in and I measure myself. Wednesdays are my new weigh in/measurement days. I'm not sure how I'll do tomorrow, because I've kinda slacked off, but I guess I won't do that anymore, huh?
Here's to me really getting this done.....
