So I finished my 3-month program working with a personal trainer and I could not be more pleased with the results. I feel like the money I spent was a lifelong investment. I now know exactly how to eat and work out in order to achieve and maintain the body I desire. I lost 11% body fat so now I’m down to 20% body fat which means I’m in the “athletic zone” and we reached the initial goal we set. 🙂 I’m 16lbs lighter but also gained a good deal of muscle mass. I went down from a size 10 to a size 4 in clothing.
Previously I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough and I tended to do the same workouts over and over. I didn’t do the right combination of cardio and weight resistance training and I’m sure I had pretty bad form on some of the moves I used to do. As for nutrition, I surprisingly learned a lot even though I read a lot of nutrition articles and books. My skin cleared up and I almost never get any pimples now except a few around that awful time of the month. I’d like to post my before/after pictures but I don’t have them back yet from my trainer. SOON!
Because it’s nearing the holidays I’ll probably have a few cheat meals here and there but I’m otherwise going to continue to do exactly what I’ve been doing as I’d like to lose a little more weight and get uber-toned. This is a lifestyle change so I will never go back to my old eating habits. Once I get down to where I want then I can adjust my workout regimen a little bit and stay in maintenance mode. I am so amazed though at how much my legs have shrunk. I didn’t even think it was possible!
I have some other exciting news to share as well, but not until my next post.
Until next time…here’s a cat photo for you:
