Ok, there is a first time for everything and I have joined a local gym LOL - a special offer includes a personal trainer for 10 weeks so it is all booked and paid for......a snag arises......I got there yesterday and the PT did a health profile on me and told me my blood pressure was high! I gotta see a doctor before I can start! Grrr
We are still building this outdoor entertainment area, and last weekend I was lifting rocks and 25 kilo pavers all weekend and Monday I thought I would jump on the scales and I have gained 4 kilo's in a month!!!!! Hence the visit to the gym!!
My clothes are still loose fitting so buggered if I know....
Ok gotta go to the doctors today, so hope this raise in blood pressure does not affect me starting my programme tomorrow...if is does you will here me scream all the way from Tas! :-)

Cheers
Maria

Hi maria

best wishes at the dr's hope everything turns out ok. you might just need to go on some form of medication to help or it couldve been from being at the gym! i know a lot of people whose blood pressure rises when theyre put in awkward or scary situations! hope everything goes well with the PT!

you may just be building muscle or retaining fluid. take measurements to see where you are shrinking! take care of yourself!

Wow Maria 10 weeks with a PT that is a great offer.

Best of luck with your check up with the doc. The gym I went to never checked all that stuff and I would have been about 75kgs at the time. Although I had already been doing plenty of exercise before joining.

Hi
I am really enjoying the gym! It is actually fun!
I had to go to the doctor first because of headaches and a rise in blood pressure - apparently the headaches were tension ones. My blood pressure is now normal.
The PT was/is excellent, I see him at least once a week. He set out a routine for me and when I visit the gym (daily) I leave my records in a basket and he checks them daily. From there I have joined a couple of classes - the first one last Monday was, wait for it.... :lol: BOX AND BURN!!! I had a ball - I was knackered at the end of it but it was great fun.
The class comprised of some of the most athlete folk and some of the most unfit ones but you just go at your own pace. There was all different ages and fitness levels at the class. I loved the boxing!! What a fantastic release and NO more headaches either!
I look forward to going and every day I work my daily rountine (running a business and small hobby farm) around the gym!

Highly recommend it - in less than a week I have reduced my measurements but NO scale weight loss as yet - although I am not concerned about the scales.

I get my measurements taken in about 3 weeks time (30 days from start) - but I can all ready feel the difference in my clothes.

I should be down to 70 kilo's in about 6 months time (around July) but having a great time getting there.....

Cheers
Maria
