Whew. Day 3. Helloooo Day 3. Today was my first session with my new trainer, Tyler. When I walked into the gym, I saw my Mestie, Ben. We hugged, high-fived and warmed up together on the treadmill. Ok, let’s clarify that. I warmed up. He took a break from lifting weights the size of me.
Tyler, much like Ben, is all about form. I love this. Bad Form = not just potential injuries, but the possibility of being “that guy”. You know..the dude that everyone looks at like, “What in the hell is he doing?” Note: you don’t want to be that guy.
Bent over Row, Lunges, Leg Lifts. Sounds pretty easy right? Well, tell that to my legs. I have the most restless legs in the world tonight. Stairs and I are fighting and I’m purchasing a parachute on Amazon Prime for my free falls to the toilet seat. Oh Leg Day, you son-of-a-bitch..you ol’ sailor you…I LOVE YOU.
Words cannot express how great I feel after a workout like that. My form was on point. Tyler mentioned on more than one occasion that he was excited to see I was not just practicing good form, but that I was strong.
Strong is what I want to be. Not skinny, not great in a bathing suit. I just want to be Strong, Healthy and Fit.
I made a new recipe tonight, Egg Roll in a Bowl. Pretty much all the good stuff from the inside of an egg roll. Find the Recipe here
Tomorrow’s goal? Power through another session, especially if it’s upper body. I’m gettin’ my hair did…so this girl won’t have to even try to wash her own! Oh, and drink more water. This one is big.
I’m off to bed, swearing with every step down the stairs as if calling my legs dirty names will make them hurt less. Nope. Magnesium will though. (yes I supplement)
