first visit with my fitness trainer

May 28, 2008

i went to bed last night feeling a bit anxious about this new committment that I have made. i started to second guess myself and wondered if i could really keep up with this VERY NEW lifestyle. i finally went to sleep, it was after 12:00 and for me that is very very late.

when morning broke, anxiety was gone and i went to the gym. there is something so soothing about the morning sun that makes me feel renewed and joyful. i met with my new trainer, she preformed a fitness evaluation on me. my BP, endurance, strength and flexibility were all in the “good” range. by BMI was 24.7 which falls within normal. she weighed me: 137…my first training session will be Monday June 2.

so after our evaluation i decided to get on the treadmill and run. i ran 23 minutes, actually a combo walking and running and probably more walking than running. then i went on the elliptical machine for 8 minutes. i did sweat and my heart-rate was up to about 155…was that enough? i figure – 30 or so minutes in the beginning can’t be too bad…? (i forgot to wear my heart monitor)

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
