Today, I met with a trainer at the new gym. He was really nice and had some interesting things to say. To be honest the most important thing he told me that I should consume 1800 calories a day or less to loss weight. He took my blood pressure, which was a bit high, but I always have issues with this because I get so nervous. He measured my waist and hips, which are too high and checked my body fat percentage (40 something ) and finally calculated my BMI and told me I was obese (I already knew this). All this to say he made my 60 pond loss look like nothing has been done (in a nice way). Sad.
Nevertheless, I also came to the conclusion that I smart when it comes to the gym and nutritional knowledge, all I have to do is put what I know to work. I KNOW what I have to do, I just don't do it. He was impressed with all the things I knew and I knew in the back of his mind he was thinking (why is this girl still fat?). I do not think that I am going to get a trainer, it is just not in the cards right now, I really wish I could but they are too damn expensive.
These last 40 pounds could be gone by the start of the new school year in September. That would be amazing.
Even though I am done with hearing about the Royal Wedding, I am going to dress the part for work tomorrow. A fancy hat/headband (the one I wore to the wedding a few weeks ago) and a dress. I love dressing up!
ChiChi--Yes, I add raw oats to my shake just a tablespoon, it is so delicious!
