Thursday, I did walking in place. Since it cannot be measured on MyFitness (I didn’t go anywhere) it doesn’t count toward my 90 miles in 1 month goal. Walking in place actually was quite uncomfortable on my back. Friday I was stiff and sore and it was cold and so, I did wall push ups and ab crunches today. This was a big mistake.
Saturday, had work out with trainer. YAY I’m down 2 pounds! Boo, she really kicked my butt today. We did super sets. Ab crunches (see Friday, explains why that was a bad idea) for 1 min, leg curls at 50# for a min, elliptical as fast as possible for 1 min on resistance 5. 2nd set, crunch, curl, elliptical at 10. 3rd set, crunch, curl, elliptical at 15. Next super set. Chest presses at 10# for a min, lat pulls at 60# for a min, back to elliptical at 5, chest, lat, elliptical at 10, chest, lat, elliptical at 15. I thought I was gonna die. The cardio is making a difference though. All that walking I did, even if it was a mile or so instead of the 3 miles I should be at by now, made me strong enough to do 20 strides/min faster than I was doing the last time we did these sets. I have a goal in mind, but it doesn’t consume me. I don’t feel bad if I miss a day. This is not good. I have a picture in my mind of Walnut Creek trail. It is so beautiful! I want to walk that, with water so I don’t get another kidney stone, over the summer.
Considering going on the Metabolic diet. It seems to be working for my friend, and If I could just get a jumpstart, maybe I could do more and feel better. I don’t know however. Prescribed meals until you get to a certain weight does not change the life style that got me to this weight in the 1st place. Need to think about this some more.
