It's always wonderful to go for an assessment with the trainer at the gym and learn that your body is made up of a third of FAT. That's not a typo, peeps. A THIRD....you read me? Ok, that's just gross. 50ish pounds of FAT. Ewwwwww. GREAT.
So my focus should be on body fat reduction...blah blah....not necessarily pounds....yada yada.....OK, fine and dandy. Either way you slice it, it all means I have a lot of work to do. Trainer (whom I haven't formally hired, but is included once a month with my gym membership) says I can have this done by September 14th AND be at my goal weight of 140 pounds.
Yeah, you're right ~ I think she smokes crack too.
Either that, or all those protein shakes have gone to her head. Crazy, buff little you-know-what...
OKAY. I'M.DONE. This concludes the Body Fat Rant for today. Don't worry, I'm sure there will be another one in the line up coming soon.
Let's talk about something I'm happy with for now ~ my running!!! Got 5 miles done on Saturday ~ a good run. Got 3 miles done this morning ~ a crappy run. There is absolutely no logic to this sport whatsoever.
But I'm moving, and that is what matters. And I've officially declared next few months as the SPLITLESS SUMMER ~ which means that I won't be pressuring myself during my runs about how fast or not fast I am running ~ and I won't be posting any splits on my blog.
(Unless of course, they are FANTABULOUS un-Pokey-like splits that just SCREAM to be posted. As the blog author, I'm allowed to have a double standard like this, and can post splits or not post splits at my sole and separate discretion.) See why it's always important to read the fine print??
So running for pure cardio benefit is what is on the game plan. I did well last week with all my workouts ~ hit every target except Sunday, which just simply warranted a rest. Today will be a double workout day with a run this morning, and a Body Pump class tonight. SUH-WEET!!!
Here's the schedule for this week:
Monday ~ Run with concrete shoes - 3 miles; Body Pump (weight lifting) - 60 minutes
Tuesday ~ (PLAN) Body Combat - 60 minutes
Wednesday ~ (PLAN) Body Attack – 60 minutes
Thursday ~ (PLAN) Run - 4.5 miles
Friday ~ REST (aaaahhhhhh)
Saturday~ (PLAN) Run - TBD
Sunday~ (PLAN) Run or Rest ~ it's a coin toss
Me and my body fat are going to get our nails done now. There has to be a highlight of this day buried in here somewhere!!!!
