I received wonderful feed back from Tony and he couldn't be more proud of the progress I have made. We decided on a goal weight and I was glad to hear that we were both thinking around the same range. We decided between 140-145 and will continue watch the changes that my body makes.
I can not tell you how wonderful Tony he is and if you are a seriously thinking about changing your body he is the man. He has so much compassion and I have been truly change in the short time I have been working with him not only physically but mentally. I look forward to more to come as I continue to work with him.
I did my weekly weigh in yesterday and am now at 147.5 at home and 150.6 at the gym so that makes a total of 13.5 pounds in 8 weeks. Hard work and clean eating has truly paid off. Won't you join me? Let look fabulous for summer!
Speaking of summer I haven't even start to begin that I know that I will no clothes that will fit and that I have to do the dreaded clothes shopping anyone out there love to shop and want to do it for me? I know you think I would enjoy it but it isn't something I like to do.
I am thinking about doing some personal training again. It is something I truly enjoy and have missed it. A girlfriend of mine called and asked if I would train her so I start that Monday and am looking forward to kicking her butt! :) I also talked to a trainer at the gym that I workout at to see what I would have to do to possible be a trainer there. I have to talk with a guy on Monday and see what certification is required. I know I will probably have to get a certification but it is exciting and hopefully it will push me to get that damn certification that I have been putting off for way to long!
The diet has been solid and I have had to no problems what so every. I did have really really low energy yesterday and when I talked to Tony last week he said that I could have 3-4 ounces of sweet potato or 1 cup of brown rice if I needed it. I have to admit I was totally freaked out about having to add that. I instantly said I need a menu I need something to follow in order to do that. He said there is no menu this is to be added if you "need it" I said, will I know if I need it? Will this set me off? I was terrified. He said you will know. So yesterday I was so tired and had very little energy in the afternoon and I was hungry before my schedule eat time. At first I thought I was just tired because I didn't get enough sleep. I decided to lay down to see if that would help. I couldn't sleep so I decided if I didn't feel better after I laid down that I would have a sweet potato with my dinner. It was exactly what I needed and I was so proud of myself for doing it. This was big, very big for me! I wasn't like the energizer bunny or anything but I did feel better and it was nice to know that I was able to recognize it. There has been so many break through for me this week it is unbelieveable. I wish I could share more of them with you but some of the others are very personal in nature and I am not willing to share those quite yet.
