Well, the time has come. We get a free gym membership as part of our job (and the gym is about 3 minutes away) so there's now absolutely no excuse for me to not go. Hence, the new exercise regime started yesterday morning.
Let's just say, if there's a fire drill today I will be one of the people waiting for the firemen to carry me down!! I'm in a fair bit of pain, but it's good pain. Mostly my exercise in the last couple of years has revolved around walking our boys and doing some kickboxing/martial arts. In the last few months, it's just been the walking as we've handled moving etc.
Last night the pain wasn't good, but to keep the muscles moving I was doing stretches etc. I'm dreading tomorrow when I go back for session 2. Please don't let them suggest more lunges!!!
It has taught me something really valuable though - other people can push me far harder than I can push myself. I wouldn't have pushed myself this far and having a trainer means that I need to be accountable to them. Just like from a food perspective, my body keeps me extremely accountable and I know when I've done the wrong thing.
In other news, the pumpkin pancakes were a dismal failure. I'm going to be experimenting again to try and make them edible, but don't hold too much hope!!
