OTHER COOL STUFF!!!
Went to the gym tonight and worked out with my trainer. She set me up on this contraption, I really need to find out what it's called - it looks like a torture device to me and sometimes it feels like one, anyway it has adjustable arms and you can do all kinds of weight lifting with it.
So my trainer sets it all up, gets the weights ready so she can show me how to do it. She gives the handle a pull and she could not budge the weights. She tries again and fails and then she puts her whole weight into it and finally she was able to get the weights moving.
After her demonstration, she says, "Get to it", and I say "Yes, Jillian". So I approach the the thing, grab the handles and easily do the exercise. You should have seen her eyes. She just looks at me with her Jillian smile, which cannot be good for me!! (Jillian is the trainer on The Biggest Loser TV Show)
Guess I'm getting strong ~ really strong!!!
I spoke to my trainer about my weight loss. I have only lost 1 pound in the past couple of weeks, but my clothes are getting too big and I'm into size 14-16's, down from 18-20's.
She said at this point of my journey, I will start seeing inches lost, then a week or so later I will see weight loss. I told her this had already happened a couple of weeks ago. She assured me this is normal for me. Said to relax and don't pay as much attention to the scale, but more on how my clothes fit. She said the weight will eventually catch up. (I wish I could remember all of the technical things she told me about how the body works ~ just don't remember) I guess what I get out of what she said is, I need to just keep focused on my plan and everything will work out how it's supposed to. RELAX!!! Whew ~ takes the pressure off!
I think that's all I've got for now. Just wanted to let you know that I feel like I've overcome a huge thing by posting my picture. Can't believe I did it.
What fear have you tackled recently?
