Well, I had my first one hour with the personal trainer on Tuesday. I was REALLY sore yesterday afternoon and it was difficult walking up the stairs - as by last night I was close to tears. Today, it is an overall soreness. It is actually a little easier getting into the seated position as I'm not wincing in pain - especially when you have to use the restroom - ouch! I have my second visit with the personal trainer tomorrow so hopefully I won't be as sore after that. I am fully aware that in the beginning I will have soreness. But my muscles haven't been trained like that in a long time. I had a personal trainer about six years ago, then I found out we were pregnant so I decreased my workouts. Then the morning sickness began and I stopped completely. Until recently, I just haven't had the time to really focus on my fitness.
I have reached an ultimate low with myself. I guess I reached it a while ago but just didn't want to admit it. Ever since I started walking again, I have felt so much better about myself. My clothes are already fitting differently. I know that I can't expect immediate results. It took me a long time to get to where I was, it will take a while to get to my final goal. So I will be setting small goals for myself. My first goal is lose ten pounds (the amount of weight I still have on from Christopher's pregnancy). Then I will work on the next ten (which is the amount I gained from the twins' pregnancy - I actually gained twenty during the first six months but I lost ten right after they were born).
