Feel The Burn
Before I talk about my first session with a personal trainer lets go over the eats.
For breakfast I switched things up a little and had a Peach Chobani, with a honey crisp apple on the side.
I wasn’t really that hungry so this did a great job of keeping me satisfied until lunch time rolled around.
For lunch I had some of the leftover chicken tacos but in a salad, it contained, romaine, spinach, onions, chicken, and salsa for a dressing. This was so good!
That little container is from duck sauce or something one night from a while ago while eating at my parents house. I’ve saved them and I use them for dressings, pb, and mustard for dipping. Keeps the salad from getting soggy.
With my lunch I also had some grapes.
For a mid-afternoon snack I had Kashi crackers and another orange.
Before I went to the gym I had a Carrot Cake Clif Bar.
So I met with my trainer and he certainly kicked my butt. He had me doing so much that I never though I’d be able to do. A couple minutes before the end of my session I started to get dizzy, too much for my body for the first day. He took me outside to get some fresh air, and that certainly calmed me down. I felt stupid until he told me that he really pushed me and I didn’t give up on any of the exercises, I did them all really well and he was impressed he never had to correct me or urge me to keep going. So that made me feel better. I found out I only had one more exercise to do with him though, and I wished I had pushed through but I didn’t realize how late into the session it was. I scheduled an appointment for the same time and then attempted to do some cardio. I didn’t last long before I started to get dizzy again so we left the gym.
After resting we went into Subway and got subs. I didn’t think I’d be able to eat much because of the way I felt so we got them to go and we took them home to eat.
I got a veggie delight again, lettuce, onions, cucs, green bell peppers, banana peppers, and vinegar, all on the 9-grain wheat bread.
I wound up eating about 2/3 of it but that was it. Now I’m ready to go to bed! It was an exhausting but fun day. I can’t wait to go back to the gym tomorrow to practice all the things we did tonight. My goal is to next week accomplish everything we did tonight, and whatever else he throws at me without feeling sick. I’m already feeling sore and I imagine I’ll be even more so tomorrow. But I love that feeling!
