oh crap… what have I done?

I have officially lost my mind! I mean truly, what would have possessed me to begin this weight-loss program again other than a serious lack of cognitive reasoning? Oh yes, I remember why I did it… because it worked last time and I want to be hot! And lets face it hot girls do not weigh a bazillion pounds.

I could not sleep Sunday night due to worry over what was coming, but overall I think I’ll survive. Monday we had our first official weigh-in and I have gained back some of what I’d lost.  However, I’m still slightly under what I weighed when the first UL ended in December.  So that is positive.  We also had our pictures taken in street clothes & bathing suits and our measurements done. This time around I have a different trainer, Alyssa, a female trainer, so my humiliation levels were lower as my thighs, waist, hips, arms, etc. were measured. Interesting to note: the difference between my waist and hips is 1 inch. No wonder I can’t keep my pants up. I suspect you may need hips to avoid plumber butt.

Yesterdays workout was shorter but still tough. We ran “monster laps” which I hated before when Ethan had us run them and then we did some circuit stuff which ended with lunges. I’m kicking myself for not working out the last month because I have completely lost any conditioning I’d built up.

Today we worked on upper body and did a lot of arm/core work. Push ups, sit ups, weights, band work, planks… all conspired to kill me and I think I sweat more than I ever have in my life. At the end of class she had us to pair up to have a wheel barrow race but I cannot support myself with my arms, let alone race down the gym floor. We also had a crab walking race and I made it about 1/4 of the way down before collapsing. Seriously, why crab walking!?! Woe is me.

When I got home I was feeling really worn out. I prepared a peach protein shake (skim milk, ricotta, honey, orange juice and frozen peaches) because I’ve read that if you drink this type of shake 30 minutes after exercising it helps build muscle and I could use more muscle. Yesterday when I made this it kept me satisfied until lunch but today not so much. The vomiting has begun folks and I wasn’t quite finished eating when it all came up. At least I was home so no one had to witness the vomiting fest.

Overall I glad I’m doing this again. It’s going to be killer but my group is really great and I’m really liking Alyssa as a trainer. I’m hoping by the end of this round of UL to be looking a better and be on the path to hotness… one can dream!

Starting weight: 270.8

    I got back yesterday and YES. I. MISS. YOU.

    No wonder you had a vomit fest. That shake doesn’t sound so good. Cheese + orange juice=volcano. Acid + milk product = curdled milk. ICK

  3. The shake is actually really good. However, my fresh from serious exercising stomach wasn’t up for anything!

    I am excited for you! I’ll have to ask you about all of your training sessions so I can start doing some of them. 5k here we come!
