I started my new training program this week. My first session training with my trainer was rough. We only went through a quarter of my legs session together, and already I had jelly legs and could hardly walk. I was surprised how amateur he made me feel, when I have been lifting heavy weights in the gym for over a year. It was such an incredibly hard session that I wondered what I have gotten myself into. However, I enlisted help because I wanted to be challenged, so I wasn’t going to give up now.
I went off and started doing the training program he gave me at my own gym. I tried to make sure I pushed myself as hard as he had pushed me, sticking to form and tempos as well as I could. The first time it was a very hard session, but I got through it, and at the end I felt like I had achieved so much! Never have I trained so hard in a weights session. I felt so focused during my workouts.
I pulled up pretty sore after the week of training. There is a huge focus on technique and engaging the right muscles, which made me sore in places I didn’t know was possible! But I love being sore after a good workout – it’s such a satisfying feeling.
In other news, my sweet cravings have virtually disappeared throughout the week! It definitely gets easier as you go. I feel amazing, as if I have made great progress in eliminating the toxins from my body and allowing my body to function at the best level possible. My skin is glowing, and I feel fresh and energised to attack every day 🙂 It’s amazing what a big difference strict clean eating makes!
