I had another great session with my personal trainer at the gym today. I worked really freaking hard, and loved every minute of it! (Well, almost lol.) I am proud of myself every week that I show up again and do my best.
I had a great session at the gym yesterday. 30 minutes cardio on the treadmill, followed by an hour of practicing strike combos: hammerfists, elbows and knees. It felt so good to be pounding the pads again!
I think I can...I think I can...I think I can...I DID!
Today is the day that I meet with my trainer for our weekly session of DEATH AND DESTRUCTION (aka personal training session.) I've haven't been performing at my peak the last few weeks, so I was prepping for today. I've been taking my iron pills, got 8 hours of sleep, made a lunch with the perfect balance of carbs and protein to be eaten at exactly the right amount ahead of time for optimal digestion- all to promote the best possible fitness experience. THEN I twisted my ankle at work this morning...argh!
Nothing major, just turned my foot the wrong way while wearing heeled shoes. I've done it before. (In those same shoes, as a matter of fact.) But for once I was SO READY to exercise. I thought about canceling, but then figured maybe we could just work around it, so drove over to the gym anyway. My trainer wasn't even there! Apparently he was running late from the airport. Oh, I was so tempted to turn around and leave. But I did no such thing. I stayed! I stayed and I worked out- all on my own! 45 minutes of cardio and strength training broken down into reps based on the circuits he usually puts me through. It's amazing how much you can do even with a sore ankle. Yay me!
Next step, I'm throwing out those damn shoes. Too bad, they are super cute. But a girl's gotta set priorities. ;)
I had a pretty good workout session yesterday with my trainer. Last week was a total bust as I was still getting over being sick, so I've been extremely frustrated with myself. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to make it through this week's session as well...but I did. I keep hoping it's going to get easier someday. I don't know when though.
My trainer says not to get frustrated. He says it's his job to make me miserable. So apparently we are doing things the right way haha.
