All good things come to an end.
I found out last week that I only have about a dozen sessions left (initially signed up for 72 sessions) with my personal trainer, Andy.
Up until now, I’ve been training at a fairly intense rate of 4-5 sessions a week. With only a few sessions left, I was faced with a decision to either continue my sessions at the current pace (to finish before the end of May) or to reduce the frequency to stretch out the sessions into the summer.
I decided to go with the latter option so that there could be a transition period between working out with and without a trainer.
It’s definitely going to be an uphill battle from here on out but I have to take ownership over my health and fitness.
On Friday, I did some of the bodyweight exercises I learned from Andy and tried them out on my own:
- Squats // 100 x 3
- Push-ups // 30 x 1, 35 x 2
- Lunges // 30 x 1, 35 x 2
- Crunches // 30 x 1, 35 x 2
- Leg raises // 20 x 3
The beauty of bodyweight exercises is that you can pretty much do them from anywhere since they don’t require any weights. I did mine in the comfort of my room, with a yoga mat on the floor and a Songza playlist blaring (Today’s Dance Pop Party, FYI) to keep me energized! 🙂
I think my first solo workout was successful because my legs were sore all weekend. I’m guessing it was the squats…
This feels like I’ve just taken the training wheels off of my bicycle and I’m wobbling along. Wish me luck!
