I’m using the old-school program I have at work to do this post so please forgive the format. I cant crop or adjust any pictures, so… oh well!
I’m at the office this morning after my 7th day of working out. Its been a total of 2 and 1/2 weeks!
Here are my thoughts on the training so far:
I’ve spent many many many dollars on crazy fad diets, diet pills, gym memberships, and everything else they can think of to get you fit. So far, nothing has worked… until I hit the gym with a personal trainer. I know it’s only been 2.5 weeks in and only 7 training days, but, I swear I can already feel the difference. My body aches in all the right ways (even my tushie is aching!), I feel better, stronger, and as if I’ll get results sooner and finally reach my fitness goals. Even though I’m recording all these workouts, I know I’d never get the same results without proper instruction. Having someone watch you while you do each work out is great because you may think you’re doing the move perfectly, when you are actually off just a smidgen, and man, does that smidgen count. “Push your butt out a little further, spread you feet an inch wider, lower your butt an inch closer to the ground.” THOSE INCHES COUNT and make a world of difference, You Can FEEL it!! lol! I think I’ll have “Pull your abs in, back straight, belly button in!” drilled into my head forever by the end of the month. There is nothing like having someone pushing you to do better, just when you think you can’t do anymore. And nothing feels more amazing then when you actually do that extra rep that you thought you’d have to give up on. Even if i dont drop a pound this whole month, I’ll be sticking around for many months with Lauren. I feel so much better and full of energy!
Here’s to a better version of me!!!
I wanted to post a link to Lauren’s website, just in case anyone was interested and wanted to check it out:
