Aches and pains today !

So i started seeing a Personal Trainer about 6-7 weeks ago. I had a gym membership prior to this and found it so much easier to not bother going to the gym than i did to go and workout. At least with the PT he comes to my house, which gives me no way to make excuses! LOL

So yesterday we did a type of training called Metafit. If you don’t know what that is, here is the description I found on Google that describes it better than I could:

Metafit is a high-intensity workout including a series of body-weight exercises with interval style training, designed to keep your body burning calories long after your training session is complete. Designed by a former marine, this is a class you can be sure to push your limits in.

I actually really enjoy pushing myself to the limit. Ok my limit is by no means good, but I am slowly getting better each time we do it. To give you an idea of how far I have come over the last 6 months. In May, I logged in my diary that I weighed 21 stone 7lbs. I am 5ft 8″ , so with the help of my anxiety felt like the arse end of a bus! 6 months on and I am down to approximately 18 stone 7lbs. A 3 stone loss and counting. For me, my weight is a massive part of my low confidence issues. Maybe if I lose another 3 stone I will have the confidence I so desperately crave? Watch this space – I WILL get there!

I am going to take today to rest. I may get out for a walk with my dogs later just so I can shut my new FitBit up! It keeps giving me a buzz every hour to feed it steps lol. Must admit it’s been a good investment. It gives me the ability to monitor my fitness levels and calories burned, etc. I don’t think it is particularly accurate but nonetheless it is good enough for what I need it to do.

Ignore the date on the watches – But I have my Seiko SKX011J on the left and FitBit on the right. Do I look sad? Do I even care? Nope… 🙂

  1. I used to do metafit and it’s a fab workout that pushes you to YOUR limits and no matter how fit you become it never gets easy. Keep up the good work.
