Now that I’m on a roll with my fitness and nutrition I’ve started to think about what my next challenge will be. Inspired by another blogger Alesha Haley at aleshahaley.wordpress.com, I’ve decided to take on Jamie Eason’s Live Fit Trainer. Before I take on any challenge or program I research it to see how other people have faired.
Based on what I’ve seen many people have been able to gain the muscle tone that I’m looking for. So I’ve decided to give it a shot. Today is the last day of week one for me and I’m feeling pretty good. I’ve used some machines at the gym that were unfamiliar to me but I was able to adjust ok.
The unnerving part was going into “man land”. Ladies you know what I’m talking about, the area where all the men work out using big heavy weights and you feel like a wimp by putting two 10# weights on the bar. At my gym, there were a few ladies over there so I went ahead and waded into the deep water. To my surprise I didn’t feel judged for my use of lighter weights, I really don’t think anyone was paying attention at all. They did their thing and I did mine. I’m learning not to get intimidated by equipment and people who are unfamiliar, but to jump in there and be open to learning new things.
