Saturday morning was my Zumba class. We had 4 people. One that was a return client and three that were new. Which is good!! I like when we get new people.
After we were done I spoke with the ladies to give them a bit of my background and how I lost weight initially doing just Zumba. They were impressed and asked me how long it took. When I told them 9 months they commented that they had 9 months then to lose the weight. I might have to explain to these ladies how I altered my diet, gave Zumba all I got and started walking 4 miles a day...then running in the evening. But my calories burned were light: 593 for an hour. Actually less than an hour because I forgot to turn on my HRM until we were done with the first song.
When we walked out, Melissa said that she wants us to pick up another class on Monday nights at 5:30! Awesome! Today I am going to leave at 5 to time how long it takes me to get to the gym to see what time I am going to have to leave. I might ask if we can push the class to 5:45 if I need the extra buffer. Our class will start next Monday.
I also asked her about personal training and if they are looking for a specific certification. She said they ARE looking for trainers, but not a certain certification. Because of that, I might end up getting an inexpensive certification right now, get some experience, and if we move or if I want to work at a different place, I at least have some experience, clients and negotiating power. As in hire me and I will sign up to get certified thru ACE or ISSA but in the meantime I am certified thru (whatever certification I end up choosing). I most likely will go thru American Muscle and Fitness and get an extra certification in Sports Nutrition.
Also Saturday I went shopping with K to Victoria Secret. I dont remember the last time I was fitted for bras and that was obvious when I was measured. My existing bra that I wore just about every day was a 38 DD. I was measured at a 34C. HAHAHAHA. Yeah. So I bought 3 new bras. Had to. No way around it. BUT they were having a GREAT sale. And I LOVE a sale! Push Up bras for $30!!
Sunday I woke up and weighed 155.5. I was fine with that. I had done some munching the day before...nothing serious...and a couple glasses of wine. Eric warned me that my weight would be going up and I didnt do any lifting so I expected it.
Sunday was my rest day. I went and saw my grandma at the nursing home. Eating was spot on for the day until dinner. My borther in law came over and cooked up a TON of steaks and a standing rib roast that he had received when a family friends restaurant closed. And because it was all together and needed to be carved into steaks and had been frozen, he had to cook it all up. And when I say a TON...I am talking about 10 steaks that look like they came from the Flintstones and a HUGE standing rib roast that looked like it was off of the Flintstones car. Remember that in the opening scene? Yeah. That was dinner last night.
I ended up making a salad with carrots, mushrooms, celery, scallions, cucumbers and steak. For "dressing" I just used some hummus. Pretty good huh?? I did have two pieces of bread with some butter but it was delicious.
Then I had my normal Casein shake last night while we watched Walking Dead.
This morning I weighed 158.0.
Probably from the bread and steak BUT I know I will be using that protein today to get thru my workout.
Tonight I work with Eric. He messaged me yesterday to talk about our session for today to make sure we were on. I told him yup and asked what we were working because I had just done shoulders myself on Friday.
He said that we would mix it up and do two days of legs this week! Oh baby! I CANNOT wait! My legs are still what I need the most work on for toning. My arms are looking fantastic but my lower body holds the fat. So I really want to lean them up and build muscle.
This is how my food is going to look for today:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with 1/4 cp applesauce, 3 hard boiled eggs
Lunch: Celery, scallions, hummus, some strips of stead
Snack: Larabar (if I get hungry)
Dinner: cheesestick, clementine, hard boiled egg
Post snack: Casein shake
Thats my news for now!!
