Training with my new trainer, Alex, went great yesterday! He hit my lower body and core pretty hard! I was expecting my legs to be very sore. They weren't bad today. Now my core is pretty sore!
Alex wants me to weigh less often. I weigh almost daily in order to keep myself accountable. He suggested only weighing with him. I think I might give this a try. I think I'll attempt this next week.
He is also requesting several diet adjustments. Nothing too drastic, he has a sample diet that I will start out with. I have guidelines for each meal. One major difference is that he has me avoiding flour. I'm trying a new bread called Ezekiel bread. It is flourless.
Below is a picture of my bring home from the grocery tonight. Some things I've had before, some things are new to me.
I ran today. First run since my 5 miles on Friday. It was COLD!!! I ran with Vetria my co worker, Marnie ran too. Vetria and I were nervous about 38* with a windchill of 31*. Oh and don't forget the mist in the air that often changed to drizzle!
When we warmed up my body went numb on the outside. So when I started running I couldn't feel my rear end. Lol. We laughed about that forever. After about 5 min we were "warm" and felt good. We did intervals today. It went well. I use my new neck gator and my new iPhone arm ban today. I love new gadgets!
Picture below of Vetria and I running. You can see Marnie in the background. She lapped us several times. She is a seasoned runner.
All in all a great day.
