Feel the burn

I told my trainer to “murder my arms” at tonight’s workout and he really listened….

I can’t believe that I have done 51 personal training sessions, and am averaging 4x/week at the gym (two with the trainer and two by myself). I’ve been meaning to blog about it, but haven’t. Its hard to talk about – its a challenge each day but I’m very … proud about it. And I’m trying to not be arrogant or weird but this is a HUGE step for me, and I’m glad that it has happened.

5 months, 51 sessions. I’ve lost over 10 pounds (the over part varies but the first ten is really, truly gone. This is way below my goal, which was 25lbs less by December, but I’m still happy). And I am so much stronger.

My trainer is great (go see Andrew at the 24 Hour Fitness in Pacifica!) – he pushes me hard, but isn’t an ass or patronizing. I lucked out, since, I think, it was basically randomly assigned.

I have a lot more thoughts on the whole process, but for now, this will be a more simple and personal post – one I think that is important, as this has become a major part of my life in the last few months. I also just finished AJ Jacob’s new book Drop Dead Healthy so working out and diet is really on my mind….
