I had my first personal trainer meeting on Friday morning at 5:30 AM. I was ready! I pushed hard. So hard taht 25 minutes into I had to sit down and then open the door b/c I got light headed. I did not think this would happen to me but I was breathing so hard and my heart was pumping so fast. You now those times when you think it is going to pop out of your chest. Well, after about 5 minutes I recovered and then got going again for 30 more minutes.

IT WAS TOUGH!!!! I did a circuit workout where I did 5 sets of exercises and then repeated it 3 times and then did another circuit with 4 sets of exercises and reapeated it 4 times.

The BIG NEWS is that I did 12 pushup without stopping. WHAT!! Yes, I thought I could do 3 but I did 10 the first time around and rested for 10 sec then did 5 more. The 2nd time around I did 12 in a row then the 3rd time I did 8 in a row. Now, my nose was not touching the ground by any means but my PT was calling them good so I was fine with however far I was going down. She did not expect me to go to the bottom for now. I will get there. I am SO PLEASED with what I did though. One of those times that you just underestimate your own strength.

So my homework is to do the circuits 2 more times this week before I go again on Friday.

Oh, I forgot the most important part. I WAS SO SORE on Saturday and Sunday and it is still lingering into this morning. Every single muscle in my upper leg was in total discomfort this weekend. It was bad. I was moving VERY VERY SLOW!! It has improved thank goodness so hopefully tomorrow I will be almost better so that I can just do it all over again.
