Someone made me aware that the above links that say "Calories eaten yesterday" with "yesterday" linking to my FitDay journal have been wrong. I went back and edited all of them on Monday. They have been wrong since the beginning of the year! Yikes! When the year changed from 2007 to 2008 I remembered to change the month in the URL, but not the year. It's all fixed now and the FitDay links will go to the correct day. :) And a big THANK YOU to "Bobby" for mentioning it in an e-mail to me.
Today didn't go at all as planned. Not bad exactly - just not what I planned. I had that free half hour personal training session so I figured I'd have the personal training from 11:30 to noon, and then do my regular workout from noon to 1:30 as usual.
The girl I was supposed to see, "Lauren," wasn't in. The lesbian girl who works there and I see at BART frequently was available, so they put me with her, which is okay. She first spent a half hour getting a history of my health, my usual workout, and my food. She said I need to eat close to 2000 calories a day and eat a lot more carbs. Um...I gain fat at 1600 calories; I'm not going to eat 2000. Yike! She also did my measurements.
Then we started the exercises. She picked up the same posture problem I have that Jason did - my posture is like a brand new vacuum cleaner: it sucks big time. She wants me to work on my back, with the theory being that strong abs pull you forward and a strong back will help keep me from slouching as much. So we only did back exercises.
She showed me correct form on some old exercises that I wasn't doing anymore - the dumbbell row and the weight-assisted chin up. Also correct form on the dual axis row, which I had been doing totally wrong. Heck, I was doing everything totally wrong!
She also showed me some new ball exercises - the rear delt raise and "Diving Into the Pool." I did these without weights. Eventually she wants me to move up to the 2 1/2 pound weights.
She wants me to do 2-3 sets (I forget now!) of 15 reps on everything until I learn the correct form, and to go s...l...o...w. She said she will call me in a couple weeks and recheck my form, so I need to work hard on it. When I get the form down she wants me to do all sets heavy with fewer reps. Still, I need to go lighter than I was going to keep my form.
At this point is was past 1, and by the time I left her it was 1:15. I did a few other upper body things - biceps, triceps (which are feeling better, thank you!), and chest. There was NO time for cardio.
I had my protein and carb snack at BART and then walked the last 1.5 miles to work, stopping at WalMart for more Special K Protein Plus, South Beach meal bars, gum, and bread.
I'm feeling kind of depressed that she criticized my diet so much. :( It also hurt that she critiqued my form, but I know that was necessary so I can handle it. The diet thing stings, though. I am carb sensitive so I need to be careful of them.
So I'm kinda down after all this and didn't get any endorphin rush because I didn't get to do my cardio. *sigh*
