I returned to Mark, aka- GymGuyMark, my personal trainer last week and had my measurements and weight taken and found that I lost another 2lbs. I had been away from exercise due to my trip home to Canada and everything that happened there but I’m delighted to be back into the swing of things. We had a fantastic session together and I did some running on the treadmill, used the rowing machine, did squats with the medicine ball, hillclimbers and the plank. I like the way that he mixes our sessions up and the variety of exercises that we do and I never get bored at all. I highly recommend Mark, especially if you live in and around the Glasgow area because he’s fantastic.
As I have a lot on and can only have 1 session (usually) per week with him, I am going to log all exercise that I undertake and it means that I have recorded not only my meals as in this post here but I can direct Mark to the activity that I am doing when not in a session with him. This means that he can tell me if I’m doing enough or too much (highly doubt it). He can also tell me if my diet is lacking in anything or if I’m eating too much of any one thing as sometimes I can be guilty of that, especially with carbs!
Monday: Up at 6am, walk dog for 30mins and go to gym for 7am where I plan on running on the treadmnill for 30 mins. I need to be back to get the children up and Daughter ready for school. If all goes to plan, we will either walk or cycle.
Tuesday: Up at 6am, walk dog for 1 hr, walk to school weather permitting. Also take in a body pump class in the evening.
Wednesday: up for 7am, walk dog for 30 mins, walk to school. Swim at night before night shift. Will try to fit in a session with Mark if he’s available.
Thursday: walk dog for 30mins , not much in the way of exercise as nightshift KILLS me
Friday: walk dog 30 mins. When I wake, a possibility of a swim or another dog walk.
