Slow Motion

So it’s been a week since my fit test and here’s what’s happened:

Went in for my personal training session. . .and my trainer had to cancel because he was feeling ill. . .

I mean, it’s not the first time professional help has canceled on me. I’ve had several shrinks skip out once they learned what the were dealing with!!

Needless to say, I have my next appointment this Wednesday.

I stuck to my meal plan all week & did some “celebrating” over the weekend. I’ll be honest, even though I enjoyed it & didn’t feel guilty, I think I’ll be less inclined to wile out again. It totally screwed with my appetite for the following 2 days!

I’ve been diligent to log my food. I’ve found the easiest way to track my food is to use My Fitness Pal. You can scan the bar code of what you consume. . .even type in the places you go out to eat!

Feel free to check out my little profile & add me. I made everything public so you can see exactly what I’m eating (unless I under eat. . .the app won’t allow those posts to show. . .which I think is a good thing!)

Hope to have some updates on my first session as well as before pics for y’all on Wednesday! Until then ✌

Fit Test Day 1

Where: Gold’s Gym
Time: 7:00am (can you say brain dead!?)
Trainer: Mario

Height: 5ft
Weight: 134

Step Test: ❤rate @ 170 BPM, test stopped at 2min23sec
Pushups: 10 knee
Sit ups: 7

I got very emotional after the step test. As I lay there in the “recovery” position, I told Mario that this is what happens every time I try to work out. I go as hard as I can, but before I can even hit 3 minutes, my body shuts down.

He told me not to worry and that he can help me. Do you know how good it felt to hear that. . .and BELIEVE it?

My body is unique and has very specific needs. To know that I have 3x’s a week for a solid year with a professional that knows exactly how to help my individual issues scientifically. . .yeah, I feel pretty good.
