Amazing ouch....

About 2 months ago, after mostly being glued to my computer chair for about three years, I decided I was tired of the aches and pains and lack of stamina I had, and hubby and I joined a new gym and popped the mucho money to work with a personal trainer, mostly cause I was scared to start working out any other way (and boy, I needed to.)

So today, when hubby and I went to work out  with him twice a week, do cardio and assorteds from our training sessions at least three times a week and things have been going well.  I've come down a full size and many of the aches and pains have totally gone away.  And I love resistance training anyway.  This is not my first time at being in the weight room.

But today,at the end of a long session that had my upper body feeling kind of like a wet noodle, trainer grins, and says, "Last exercise.  Do 100 squats."

I swear the man worships at the altar of the Goddess Squat.

But my fat ass did all 100, and faster than my hubby, too.  LOL.   

You don't know how amazed I felt that I COULD.  That's the amazing thing.  I have come a long way in two months.

Wow, congrats! It's a great feeling to get in shape. All the best in keeping the progress you've already made going on your own!

Having a personal trainer spur you on is a huge help. Do you think you'll stay on with him or go it alone for a while to see how you do solo?

I'm going to stick with him at least through August (cause that was what I signed up for...)but hubby started talking like we may do this longer. It really is helping us stick with it, and we're both enjoying the results...

I applaud and toss confetti freely. That is such wonderful, wonderful news. And I fucking hate squats. That is all. :)
