Okay.. so after asking my trainer friends a million questions about over consumption, drinking too much water and blah blah blah, I decided to ask if she does consults. I felt kind of guilty taking her expertise for free when she deserves to be paid. ;o) So, today I went over to her gym/house to get my consult/butt kicked! (She did a consult WITH a training session!) I learned so many new things. Stuff I had never thought of, or never really understood. #1 rule... Stick your boobs out! It 's a posture thing... check out her blog about it: http://www.crazibeautiful.com/GirlfriendToGirlfriend/ExpertHome.aspx?postID=128 This is something I am going to work on! I know that the shape of my mid section would be very different if I walked with my shoulders back and my chest out... so that's one thing I'm going to really think about this week!
Another thing she told me that I thought was interesting was that there is no way to be TOO small when you are losing weight the healthy way. I guess I was so worried that there was a healthy number and that beyond that made me crazy! So it was good to hear that as long as I am losing weight the healthy way, with diet and exercise and not depriving myself of ANYTHING, it would be OKAY if I weighed less than 115 lbs... or even if I weighed 125 if my body fat % was good. SO... I'm not limiting my weight loss, but not insisting on a small number either. This means... if I get below 115 lbs, you will all have to deal with me! ;o) LOL!!
I ALSO got my butt kicked and LOVED it! I'm going to be working out with her once a week. I'm so excited to have an extra boost.. wish I could go everyday lol! But once a week is all I can do right now and I'm so thrilled for the opportunity.
My goal is really just to be healthy/fit/learn how to eat right. So... I'm ready to get some muscle tone and lose the little doughnut tire around my belly! YAY!!
