Okay....my trainer thinks I'm crazy. It must be true. Don't ask why.
We figured out a lot of things today. I've been tired, no energy...not enough protein or water. I've been steadily gaining weight...not eating the right things--too much sugar. Well duh...I knew that. Also not enough cardio. She said I should be doing some cardio every day. She cut down my weight training to two days per week. I told her about the Nike+ Challenge and she thinks it will be good for me. She wants me to aim for 60 miles during the month.
As far as nutrition goes, I am to eat all the veggies I can stuff into my little chubette body. Keep my protein palm sized, and limit carbs to early in the day. I am to eat NOTHING white. One day a week I can have ONE treat. She says we need to give ourselves permission to be human! Pretty much everything she told me, I already knew. I told her that. I also told her that I need her to kick me in the butt. So for that reason...I am to submit my journal to her every Tues.(Tues is my Monday) She trains here where I work, I see her almost everyday. It will be easy to keep myself accountable to her.
She's making me give up Diet Coke--I only drink the decaf. She says she doesn't care--it's ALL crap. I know, I know... Geez, can't a girl have ONE vice? A while back I gave it up, but it has slowly crept back in. This will really be hard for me, I like the fizz and the cold taste. Water sucks. I drink it, but I'm usually about 2-3 glasses shy of what I need. I am to have a bottle or cup of water on my desk at all times. Believe me, she'll check, so I have to drink the nasty stuff. She said I could put Crystal Lite in it. I challenged her on this...Crystal Lite has the same nasty stuff in that Diet Coke does--Aspartame. Why would I trade one for the other. She had no really good answer for that. So I am not going to drink either one. Can't stand lemon or lime, so it'll have to be plain water for me.
So that's the new plan in a nutshell. Eat less, move more. DUH....
