Well I went along for my hour session with a personal trainer and I am pleased I did - I have strained my shoulder on the multi gym by doing an exercise that I shouldn't be doing. I have a course of tummy strengthening pilates to do as well as continue with my ski/walker thing.
I had a machine taped to me and I have too much body fat (like I didn't know that!!). I do not take in enough water - so I am slightly dehydrated - but I do have a problem with water, the first problem is I dislike it and have to force even a glass down most of the time and secondly when I have had a few glasses of water I end up going to the bathroom all night.
My fat has settled in my abdomen (I knew that too) my butt is too flat and have no muscle content - my calves are the hardest he has ever felt
So the good news is he said he will fix me up - that I can't wait to see
I will go back and have some lessons with him over the next few weeks as I really do need some help with the exercises and once he is confident that I have mastered the technique I can just go and see him now and then.
The funniest part of the session today was that I fell off the ball (three times
!!). I had no sense of balance at all - it was quite funny...
Oh and i have a hollow in the small of my back that needs working on - geez I came outa there feeling like an old crock!
But I am pleased I made the decision and one that I am certainly going to follow through on...time will tell if it will work for me I guess. But I am positive about it and one way or another I will lose this extra weight.
