Well everyone it was day one of my six month journey to a healthy lifestyle! I will admit that I was really nervous to get out there and do it. Mainly because I am not in any means in physical shape and this is way out of my comfort zone. I've also never worked with a personal trainer or really in public at all. I've done a few classes at school here and there but I was always too worried that people would look at me and just be like "ew gross, look at her." But I have come to find that that isn't the case.
Everyone else working out is focused on their workout. How do I know this? Because I was so concentrated on how I was moving and what my body was doing that it didn't even occur to me that people were around. So, if that's what's holding YOU back...don't let it!!
When I first met with my trainer, Beau he made me think of goals for myself that had nothing to do with loosing weight. Which is genius. I've always focused on loosing weight and that's it. I never thought things like wanting to be able to run or be able to not be out of breath walking up a huge flight of stairs or something like that. One of my goals is that I want to be able to run a 5K. I've always wanted to do it, and there are so many fun ones out there to do, but I just never have the patience to be able to run. I always want fast results (I blame that problem on being AOL instant massage).
With that being one of my goals, day one Beau threw me into it. I ran/walked a 5K on the treadmill. I don't run. I'm not a runner. The last time I can remember doing any sort of running was laps around the gym in 8th grade basketball. At first I was thinking that I would be on there for hours and I would be able only run for maybe 30 seconds. Turns out I proved myself wrong and pushed myself to run more and not let my head tell me to stop. And about 50 minutes later and a gallon of sweat, I was finished!
It may not sound like much, but it was a great way to start this journey off showing that if I push myself, I can reach my goals. For me, it's more mental than anything.
