Day 38 - 7 Month Focus

Yesterday was a tough day!! Too much stress and pressure at work and I was super tired and hungry!! I pushed through the day and even fought off eating too much. I did go over 172 calories, but by the time I was done with my workout with my trainer, I don't think that's too bad. She kick my hiney!! I needed the nourishment!

We did 15 minutes on the treadmill and then my weight routine. She increased the weights on most everything! I am lifting about 12.5 pounds for shoulder work, 15 pounds for triceps and 20 pounds for biceps. WOW I can't even believe I can do that. Don't tell her this, but some of the things we do, the weight are too light!! Shhh!! It kind of freaks me out. Do you know how big 20 pound weights are? We have two racks of weights in my gym. The "girl" rack and the "guy" rack. The 20 pound weights are the last ones on the girl rack. The next size up is in their rack!!! YIKES!!!  Yep, I'm headed for the "Big" Boys!! Then after the weight session, it was 30 minutes on the bike.

It was kind of fun, even though I was super tired when I went in, I left that place floating on a cloud. It feels great to be strong and fit. I love being able to do what she asks me to do, even if it scares the pants right off me!!
