I got my hair done last night. It took 9 hours, I didn’t get home till 2am. I absolutely LOVE it, it makes me feel glamorous and like a “diva”. I hope I can maintain it, I’m not good at maintaining my hair
Today was my second day of training with Mike at Az Pro Physiques . We did full body circuit training, I hate pushups and lunges just in case anyone was wondering. For some reason the pushups don’t hurt my knees on the mat at az pro physiques so now I’m thinking its the mat at LA Fitness that is causing that particular knee issue with pushups.
Mike tweaked my diet just a little. He wants me to try not to eat those “after workout carbs” I bought (rice cakes, low fat cookies) saying carbs and sugar are the enemy in this case. He said he’s not trying to get me to go on a low carb diet or atkins or anything, he just wants to limit the sugar. There are better carb choices. I haven’t been eating them much anyway cause I don’t think I strength train hard enough to deserve them, lol. I keep them in my car and there has been a couple times that I ate them because I was starving and not near any food though. He also wants me to add veggies to my breakfast. He said my greek yogurt with fruit is ok for now, so I’m guessing in the future he’s going to have me cut it. My protein shake is ok as long as its only after a workout, he said its better to get my protein from real food sources for digestion purposes. I’m really glad he didn’t tell me to lower my calories because that is the only thing I would have disagreed with. I do NOT intend to starve myself, sorry, just not going to happen. I have to preserve my mental sanity and hunger is one of the quickest ways to drive me insane.
As far as training goes he wants me to do a low intensity cardio EVERY DAY. I’ve been taking a rest day once or twice a week but he says EVERY day. He also said to keep up with my group exercise classes on the days I don’t train with him and try to do a variety of them. So I may alternate between yoga and Bodyworks. Thank Goodness LA Fitness has that new iphone app so I can see what classes are going on at any time.
I will be very compliant with anything he suggests. He knows me and my goals and he has a plan for my body and results. So I will take advice from my trainer and no one else to keep down the confusion. I am satisfied with this plan. I think this will help me get a good base to start with and then maybe we will ramp it up a bit.
