DAY 1 - IN it to WIN it
THIS DAY HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST AMAZING TIME OF MY LIFE! I am so excited, I don’t know how to write this post. Remember when I said that the gym membership fee is a bit steep for my budget, and Salome (gym’s manager) told me it’s the last thing I need to worry about? SHE MEANT IT! SHE TOTALLY MEANT IT! When I came to Kinetico yesterday for my Day 1, she informed me that they will be sponsoring me 8 months. EIGHT FREAKING MONTHS! And even before I can get a hang of the great news that will change my life forever, she started to teach me about my weight-loss plan. What to do, and what NOT to do. The classes I can and cannot attend. She has given me a different meaning to LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION. I need to wake up, eat, exercise, and sleep on one pattern for the whole training. I need to record all that I’m doing at the gym, at home, at work, and just everything else in between. EVERYTHING IS TO BE DOCUMENTED AND I AM ALL FOR IT!
After the discussion, Leila took my initial measurements which I will be posting after I got a copy from her. I really don’t care anymore what numbers appeared in the weighing scale, and in the tape measure; although it matters, I AM GOING TO BRING IT DOWN. She also took my baseline data such as fat percent, pulse rate and heart rate. She taught me how the machines work and ffter which, she said: “Feel at home and exercise!”
So for the day, I was testing machines out.. and I feel like the treadmill and I will be buddies for quite a time. I was walking for a total of 45 minutes with a speed of 3.8. I know that’s slow, but I’m still testing out the waters. Nouf, my go-to angel told me that I need to take it up speed 4 or 4.5 and THAT’S WHAT I’M GOING TO TRY TOMORROW.
Here’s my card. IT’S OFFICIAL!
I know I am not the only one out there. If you are wanting to change, LET’S DO IT TOGETHER! I need a gym buddy. :)
