Blah, blah, blah!!

This morning I met with a personal trainer at my gym. It was just an assessment and he did a lot of weird tests. Basically I have a lot of % body fat. HELLO.... I didn't need a test to tell me that! LOL. I don't think the PT did a lot of good so I am not going to continue with the next 3 sessions. He wants me to sign up for a session which is $600. Ummmm, I don't think so. Not this time around at least. He did show me some neat exercises to do some deep pressure point massaging. I didn't realize I was that stiff!

I got on my Wii Fit this morning and it said I have lost another 3.1 pounds since last Thursday. I have lost a total of 10.2 pounds on there since 2 weeks before Christmas. I was soooo sick during the Christmas break that I lost a few pounds. When I started up this challenge on January 5th I wasn't back up to my normal weight. I think it was better for me to just keep losing weight instead of trying to gain it back just so I could lose more. Doesn't really make sense!

My DH told me to go ahead and buy a flat screen TV / DVD player to put in front of the treadmill. I think that will really help me not to get so bored. I tried it out yesterday afternoon and walked another 1/2 mile without even realizing it. I think I was in my fuzzy socks, too. :)

Today I am just feeling BLAH. It's still my "woman" time so I am going to take it easy. I didn't get to do the treadmill this morning because of my meeting so I am going to hop on it during naps and just walk a mile or two.

This morning I had oatmeal, 1 cup of cantaloups, and 1 cup non fat milk for breakfast. I am still stuffed and BLOATED!!! Hopefully this feeling will pass really soon!


  1. Hey Robyn,

    We have a flat screen tv on the wall in front of the treadmill and it's great...I hate the treadmill and prefer to listen to my iPod if I do go on the silly thing, but hubby watched sports on the tv while on the tredmill this great!

  2. Awesome! I also just ordered some wireless headphones to plug into it and wear. I workout so early that I don't want the TV to wake them all up. :)
