Three out of four days at the gym this week so far. Not bad. :o
Sunday was yoga, Tuesday was lower body, and Wednesday was upper body. I think Thursday will be both.

I'll be sure to post details later.

Thanks. :)

I'm taking my break on Friday. Saturday will probably be racquet ball or just cardio, and Sunday will definitely be yoga. Monday through Thursday is butt-kicking cardio and weight training. Or at least that's how the schedule looks right now.

awesome! Great job. This kind of stuff really gets me motivated. I am huge on goals, and goal setting, etc. This is great to see.

Best of luck and you know where to come if you ever need questions answered, support, or anything else. It seems like you are kicking butt!

Thanks so much Robert. I'm trying really hard. Yesterday's workout was a bit slow. I just did twenty-one minutes on the eliptical, as well as few sets on the ab crunch and torso rotary. I'm thinking today I'll do lower body again because I'm banking on my trainer attacking those areas later this week.

Your persistence and determination are inspiring, teanyrican :D. What does your nutritional intake look like? Are you following any program?

Keep up the great work; you have such a great attitude, Woman ;)!

_raVen_, thanks so much. :)

Right now I'm just trying to increase my vegetable and fruit intake. I'm eating less [white] rice, but other than that, nothing's really set in stone yet. I'm waiting to see what my trainer says. I'm very worried that he's going to push the whole fish and lean meats thing on me.

Trainer Pros & Cons

#41 Postby teanyrican » Sat Sep 09, 2006 6:31 am

Pros
1. I've got the best trainer in the gym.
2. He was patient and positive.
3. He's got years of experience.
5. He actually had me work on my back, but was pretty careful about it.

Cons
1. He didn't take my measurements or body composition!!!
2. He didn't have me warm up before our short-ass session!
3. He made me work out my lower body despite the fact I mentioned working on it the day before. My quads feel burned out.
6. He kept calling Racine instead of Rachael. And after explaining to him that it's pronounced "Ray-Shell" he insisted on pronouncing it "Ray-Chul". I know that seems petty, but wtf, it's my name for cryin' out loud!!!
7. I HAD TO SHARE MY SESSION WITH SOME OTHER CHICK!!! This, by far, was what pissed me off the most. She was nice and all, but we paid for a PERSONAL trainer. If I want to do group sessions, I'll take a class at the gym.

Though part of me wants to give it one more shot, I'm thinking of just going to the gym I frequent on the weekdays and just going to the North Brunswick one for my friend's yoga class during the weekend because yesterday just felt silly.

Summer Shape Up Ending

Just a bit of a preview...

Before.

After.

Still have so much work to do. Just like last contest, I didn't get the opportunity to start most of my work until the last few weeks. It's pretty depressing, but next summer, I'll look back at this point and smile.
