Challenge: Week 3

getwellnessforlife.blogspot.com

Ok, so last week my goal was to go to the gym 4 times, including my Personal Assessment I had with a personal trainer. Unfortunately this is another week in the red I only spent two days sweating it up on the treadmill. And, to add insult to injury, I am sad to say my Personal Assessment was shockingly terrible. Holy out of shape!!! (I was serious about the injury part. Fell at the gym and busted my knee.. ew)

We started the assessment with a simple 5 minute warm up on the treadmill and a light job for another 5 minutes. I was being an over achiever and I actually started running at 4 minutes. There’s only so much walking this girl can do. By the time the trainer got back I think he was pleasantly surprised that I was going good at a steady pace. I was pretty impressed myself since I am not, and never have been a runner. But that’s where it turned around.

Once he brought me over to start working on my body sculpting and weight training I thought I was going to die. No literally, peel over and end my 26 years right then and there. Workouts that had been easy for me in the past were now a struggle. I felt like a 90 year old women lifting those 10 pound weights. This did nothing but confirm to me, I need to need to be coming much more regularly and doing something more than just my nice little run on the treadmill.

Next week’s goal is to stick with going 4 times a week but to add some strength training in there as well.

What are some good workouts you guys suggest?
