That's right! I finally reached my first goal of 10 pounds lost! I'm so happy! I lost 5 pounds this week! I had lost 8, but then gained back 3. So instead of losing 13 pounds, I'm only counting ten. I'm not going to count weight I had to lose twice. Maybe now, even when injured or busy, I will try harder not to gain any back! Anyhow, I am pleased and am excited for my next goal of 16 total pounds lost, because it has special meaning. I am focusing on how much I have lost, and NOT how far I have to go...must think positive!
I had my free consultation with a personal trainer last night, and that went well. He showed me a 30-40 minute routine I can do without weights. So that way, if I can't make it to the gym, I have something very effective that I can do at home, or anywhere. That was nice. He also let me know my exact target heartrate range for my age. I know where I need to keep my heartrate to concentrate on fat burn or cardio. (focusing on fat burn!) So, now it's up to me. Personal training is not in the budget! Hehe Although, he did say that if I got stuck in a month or wanted a new routine, I could pay for just one session and I bet that would really be helpful. So, I had a great week, I'm really enjoying the gym, as I knew I would...I've always loved gyms....and I'm looking forward to another great week!
