Days 342 & 343 - Big Mistake

Yesterday was my first day of having a one on one personal trainer. For months a friend and I had done it together, but her love of running (and keeping money in her pocket), forced her to stop.

Last week in preparation for my session I told my evil trainer, Elaine, to "go hard on me."

Now, as I hobble around like someone in their 3rd trimester, I am thinking that might have been a mistake.

Today I am having to carefully consider each urge to sit down knowing how painful it's going to be. Walking is sheer torture, and I don't want to even think about stairs.

I think a nap is going to be the best medicine for this one.


  1. Oh my, I did this once with some weight machine. A friend was cheering me on & I was feeling like the Incredible Hulk. The next day was a whole lot of whining & wishing to die.

    Hope tomorrow's better.

  2. I'm proud of you! I totally couldn't do it...I don't have the tolerance for someone telling me how to work out, no matter how great a shape I'll have in the end (had a class once in college and that was enough for me!). You were a trooper and gave it your all and the soreness will diminish and you will have a great body to show for it!
    Way to go!
