I haven't posted an update in a while, so I thought I would.
Mike and I have now moved to Phase 2. We are doing well!
We decided to join a gym - we both have personal trainers (PT) as well. I don't mind spending the money - that's actually a motivator for me! Yesterday I walked 2 miles on the treadmill at about a 3.2 mph clip. Not bad for just starting. :lol:
My blood sugar got REALLY low though - so I crashed pretty bad and had to have a bottle of OJ at the gym on the way out. :shock:
I thought I'd be sore today (when I've walked in the past I was sore) but things are good. I'm not really sore at all. :P
Today I go back and work with Donna my PT at 5pm. 3 weeks of cardio to build up, then onto weight training. I guess it'll be a mix of treadmill, elliptical trainer and then this esalator type stair stepper... $10 bucks says I'll be hurting tomorrow. :roll:
I'm excited though - dropping a lot of weight (almost 20lbs now) - and working out should help that - not to mention improving overall fitness.
After only one day - I'd highly recommend the motivation of a good club. The staff knows me by name (and a little joke nickname) and are very encouraging, thinking every little achievement is a victory... definately what I need!
