No gain and much pain I'm in right now. After months of preparing to move and moving and settleing and all kind of excuses, I had not seen the likes of a gym or even my morning walk. Well yuh know de results of that would be significiant weight gain, and gained I did. Well I though I was cool. you know how it is living in denial....Oh the weight will come off ...oh, it's only a lil extra 5 lbs ..oh I iz ova 40 now, I'm entitled tuh a few cusions hey and dey...and the excuses went on, until one morning/evening I realize dat a certain clothes or outfit ein fitting nuh more and Camp has increased a dress/pants size..But I still in denial.
Well all of that came to a screeching halt the other day. I walked into the gym and signed up. I signed up for this Jump Start program...and got weighed, measured and body fat analysis....wow..talk about shocker. It's a lot more dan de lil extra 5lbs I though I gained and the body fat % is way out of control....girl, you over weight and out of shape. Yo gots a long way to go to get back in some sorta shape. I got a diet and workout program. complete dis as follows and in about 6 weeks you should loose 15lbs. Sounds like a plan. It took me longer than 6 weeks to put it on, so taking it off in 6 weeks sound feasable.
So I had my first workout session with a trainer. 40 mins of cardio maintaining my heart rate of 130-140. Sounds easy enough, but believe me, it nuh easy atall, especially when yuh outta shape. then off to the resistance training 50 mins. 2 cycles of a series of exercise targeting all body areas..dem too nuh easy. We worked the legs, butt, arms, chest, stomach and evathing in between...whaloosss...I gots a long way to go...dem gonna be de longest 6 weeks ah ever live.
But I survived day one. I went to day and put in my 40 mins of Cardio and actually I did a lil extra 10 mins fuh good measure. do some abs and I did out fuh de count fuh de rest ah de day.
Tomorrow now is another session wid de trainer..lordee help a sista.
So one week down, five to go. ..help Camp reach her 15lb weight lost goal..can I do it..I don't know but I sure gonna try. I ein even mention the diet part....I gotta work on that issue, so ley me just deal wid de exercising first... I'll come back tuh de diet in a future write up. I gine and rest these old bones fuh tomorrow training session.
