I was up super early this morning in anticipation of my first visit with Iron Woman Paula at Fit World. I laid my clothes out last night before bed and everything. When I arrived at the gym, color coordinated as always, I was feeling pretty good. I was excited to learn new things and ready to work hard. I had told Paula, previously, that I was prepared to cry, throw up, or scream (in no particular order) to get this stubborn 30 pounds OFF! She definitely took notes because at some point in the work out I was ready to do any and all of those things LOL. It truly was the most difficult work out I have ever experienced, but I feel so strong and proud of myself. As I looked at myself in the mirror I realized I have come along way but I still have a ways to go. That just makes my ability to color coordinate my gym outfits insignificant. I seriously felt like a fat girl on her first day of Biggest Loser camp huffin’ it out. I really thought I was in better shape…..ummm yea HELLO REALITY CHECK! I needed it though. There was a small voice inside saying, “You’re down 84 pounds, you’re 10 clothes sizes smaller, you’re fine right here-this is a good weight”. Well I shut her right up this morning! I’m not fine and I want to keep going and I have the tools and support to do it. Paula took time in the beginning of our session to chat a bit to find out all about me! We discussed my work outs, other physical activity, injuries, goals, diet/eating habits etc. I loved that! It truly was Personal. I even told her my goal was to have a body like Kim Kardashian, true story! I’m a curvy girl by nature so Jillian Michaels I will not be, but sleek and curvy Kim is do-able. She even wrote that down so we could target areas for a femine curve…..come on it doesn’t get more personalized than that. Plus, the entire time we were working out she was educating me on what the excerise was doing to help me and pushed me the whole way. There is nothing better than hearing “You can do it!” It was an amazing hour with an amazing lady. I have my next session this Friday….if I can walk LOL.
