Anyways, hope everyone is having a good Monday!
Good news...my internship ended on Friday and I got the job! I'm officially a trainer now and I love it. Now I have to start hustlin' and getting clients...and work on the fact that I'm painfully shy, haha. I'll get over it. I've been spending my free time writing/studying workouts..I've filled half a notebook so far.
So, today I decided I'd post up one of my charts from my bodymedia, if anyone is interested, since I've been crankin' lately.
Also, my arms are starting to look better since eating more! What up, what up. Sorry about the almost boob shot, those suckas tend to get in the way..(especially when I'm doing upright rows. Yeah..)
I went out yesterday and did some shopping. Blowing my money on all totally practical stuff....;) I needed a lunchbox for work though, because I bring food everywhere, I also picked up some new placemats and a new mug for tea.
Can ya guess I'm half Irish? I rep it hard too.
My big new lunch box, it doesn't look it but when it opens up its actually pretty wide. Hopefully it fits all my food haha!
Thank you Target for making sure my tootsies will be given their own sugar fix via cupcakes. I bought a new "outfit" too...I love how gym clothes now double as work clothes.
I was done at work before 8am, so I headed to the gym early and started at the pull-up machine because I like to warm up supersetting pull-ups and push-ups and one of the new trainers there came up to me and complimented my work but told me my push-ups were whack (well, he was much more polite than that). Instead of doing them with my arms out wide, he told me to try 'em with my elbows pointed back.
Big freakin' difference! So much harder. I know no one likes unsolicited advice, but if it's at the gym and from someone with half a brain..I'm not bothered by it. I mean I myself would never do it to someone, unless I was at work or knew the person, but I do appreciate help. I'm always looking for improvemnt and new ways to challenge myself.
Then I noticed he was wearing a Crossfit shirt, so I naturally had to pick his brain about that and he talked for a while about it and before I knew it homeboy had me doing box jumps onto benches and tabata squats.
He showed me some other stuff and I asked him to help me out with my form on deadlifts and keeping my back straight. He was happy to give me a hand and it was definitely very helpful because I go to the gym by myself and never have anyone to correct me or anything so it's hard to tell what I'm screwing up. So I ended up signing up for a free session with him, which is in a couple weeks. I told him to give me an all out Crossfit style work out. Finally I get to get my ass kicked!! Good times.
I'm off to eat, relax, run errands and catch up on blog reading, should be a nice afternoon :)
