I woke up this morning and felt great, it made me realise that yesterday I was completely and utterly exhausted, which I suppose is to be expected after the week I’ve completed I’m thrilled with what I have achieved this week, to be honest, I had my doubts!! I now have an idea of what to expect from each class so I think this week coming will be mentally a bit easier!!
It was 1:1 Personal Training today with Shane, see photo, bit of warm-up on the bikes followed by lots of exercises including boxing! I really enjoyed it, it was really hard work and my left arm seriously needs some strengthening up! I pushed myself and learned how to breath properly during exercising. That is actually something I struggle with, but hopefully I’ll put into practice a new technique and it won’t be a problem anymore I suppose over time my body will get more used to exercising too During our session Shane spoke about mind over matter, training your mind not only your body and when I came away and thought back over the session, it became quite clear to me that Personal Training isn’t only about getting your body fit, or in my case, loosing weight, it’s very much so about getting your mind fit too. I would never have really thought about it that way although I know from my own experience that if I wasn’t feeling good mentally there was no way I would have even went for a walk. However whenever I did go for a walk I would always clear my mind and feel better Doh, Amanda seriously!!! I think the penny has finally dropped!!
Tomorrow I have Spinning in Sprint Spinning Studio, Arklow with Lorraine, I’m really looking forward to it. I know it probably sounds silly but I am visualising myself as a balloon with the tiniest puncture hole. Every class deflates that balloon just a tiny bit more it gets me one step closer to my goal!! I know, so cliche!! But true
