Indi doesn't think I need a towel to work out on
I signed up to the gym last year, and I see a personal trainer once a week. My eating is still crap and I still don't really do much cardio so I haven't seen any progress in weight loss but mentally I am doing amazing. Instead of looking at something heavy thinking "nope, I can't do that", I give it a go. My trainer and I set some goals for the next month or so:
- I am going to start the C25K program, so between that and interval training at the gym I am hoping to be able to run/jog 5k.
- We set my 1 rep max for bench press, so the highest weight I can only achieve 1 rep of is 35kg (77lb) and then my goal is to work up my strength so in 4 - 6 weeks I can bench press 35kg more than once and set a new 1 rep max.
- Clean Eating!! This is the biggest one for me, after cardio (I hate cardio), and it will be helped by a nutritional eating class being helped at my gym on the 18th of this month. After that class, my trainer says I have to be 100% clean eating. By clean eating, I just mean healthy, cutting out junk food and avoiding as many processed foods as I can.
I am going to start tracking food again using MyFitnessPal, and will go back to using fitocracy to track work outs. I am also going to make myself a fitness planner, and stick to it. To achieve my bench press goal, I need to do weight training 3 times a week, and I then need to focus on cardio a 2-3 days a week too, I am going to be a busy girl! As long this damn heat waves end, but I am going to count going to the beach as cardio, swimming with some jogs up and down the beach is a pretty good work out!
Wish me luck!
