    I Can Barely Move Today


    Holy Moly. {Editor’s note: that’s not what I really wanted to write}

    Yesterday I had an appointment with a trainer at my gym to learn how to use all the machines and to figure out what weight I should be doing on each one. It’s part of my membership fee, so I decided to give it a shot. I’ve been focusing more on strength training as of late because… the treadmill is really boring.

    I met my guy (who I’m a little in love with) and he showed me around and got me rolling in the circuit. I finished up, did 20 minutes of cardio and then headed home feeling good.

    This morning I attempted to roll out of bed to start my day and could barely move. Oh. My. Word. My abs are IN SO MUCH PAIN. Apparently I have ZERO muscle in that area. Unbelievable!!

    I love those people who say the pain feels good because it means you actually did something. Yeah… the pain stinks. Let’s stop this charade.

    1. Lol. I started on Tuesday. A trainer showed me everything. Yesterday was my second time at the gym. I am doing 15 minutes warm up on a cardio thing, 30 minutes muscle training and i am finishing with 15 minutes cardio. I swear I didnt even know I had muscles in the places that hurt. It’s crazy. I do not like the pain, but I hope I will get a nice result out of doing it, thats why I do not care.
