My Trainer is Awesome......

Hi again,

I wanted to let you all know how my first day of training went. Well IT WAS GREAT!! I feel pumped and ready to go.
On my way to the training studio, I felt so nervous. Would I be able to do the exercises? Could I really do this??? WELL YES I CAN AND YES I WILL DO THIS!!

I met with my trainer Rob today and my goodness, I've never seen such muscles!! He was so friendly and approachable and I actually felt/sensed that he was excited to do this with me. He really knows his stuff and displayed such a passion for it, that it was almost infectious. We went through my entire training program, one exercise at a time. We actually did them - they were killer hard but the hurt was good. I had such a sweat on, it was insane. I have never, ever seen some of those excercises and at times, I felt things in places I never knew I could or would ...IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!

This program he put together fits me perfectly and I can't wait to do them and see how I progress in a few weeks! I'm very excited!! I am on such a high and just so pumped. Anyway, he was so helpful, taking the time to explain everything thouroughly, checking that I had proper form, giving me tips and such. I got only good vibes from him, so trainer is awesome!

Then it was time to go over the meal plan - this was what I was worried about most, because I LOVE TO EAT....I didn't want to be eating weird foods like things I couldn't pronounce...I didn't want to have to weigh food etc., etc. Well, this meal plan consists of real foods that I can find at any grocery store, that I am familiar with. The majority of the stuff, I already have at home, it's just now I know how to properly combine these foods, using healthy portions. It looks very do-able to me. After looking at the list, I sighed a huge sigh of relief and said, "I can do this, and I WILL do this!"

So, what will I be doing??
In addition to following the customized eating plan, I will be weight training (using the program Rob developped for me) 3 days a week and doing cardio (20 minute sessions in the beginning) 3 days a week. So working out 6 days a week alternating my weight training and cardio. I'm very excited.

Everything just seems to be falling into place. I'm in such a good place right now. I'm ready to get this done, one day and one step at a time. I can't wait for tomorrow!!

Good for you Joania, At first, it's not going to be easy, but keep with it. Just keep saying to yourself that the words, "I can't" are not in your vocabulary. Best of luck with the program and I will keep checking on your progress.
