My personal trainer is trying to kill me...

This is my before picture....After will be posted after Halloween!
So session 2 of personal training did not go like the first session. After my first session the next day I was sore and the second day I was walking like the bride of frankenstein. I even went to the pool to help stretch out. Working out the second day definitely helped me loosen up.

I weigh in weekly at the gym and I've already lost 2 lbs and 1% body fat! Woo!

My trainer joked that I signed a paper saying if she killed me she wouldn't be responsible...well last night that almost happened. I have asthma. I hate hate hate running on the treadmill. Well treadmill + chest presses + asthma = me almost dying because I didn't have my inhaler with me.

A new me

For many years I have had ideas in my head. I have always wanted a tattoo and I have always wanted to get my nose pierced. I found a recommendation for a great place and I had planned to go and get my nose pierced. While we were there I decided to "talk" about what I wanted for my tattoo. He drew it up and said depending on me he could do it in 30 minutes. I looked at my husband who immediately began to freak out. Even though I have been talking about this for years I think he thought I would never get it done. He gave me a look the entire time but he did hold my hand. Getting my nose pierced was scary because they made me sit up and the needle was BIG. I closed my eyes.

The tattoo felt like a bee sting if the bee kept stinging you and had a needle for a stinger. It hurt but I didn't cry. I did say a few choice words occasionally. Faith is the one thing that continues to get me through everything. The butterfly is for my mama. She is my hero. The colors have been my favorite colors since I was little. I am not a pink or purple girl.

My sister in law asked if I was having a quarter life crisis. I said no and I believe that. I feel that 25 is a year for making decisions. I'm working on my 101 in 1001 days list, I am going to school full time, I am reaching my goals.

I think one of the changes I have been wanting to make for awhile is my weight. I want to be who I was years ago when I went to the gym and ate healthy. I have a new slogan or whatever you want to call it...Hot for Halloween. My husband and I joined a gym. It has a few locations that are very easy for us to get to. I pass one on my way home from work and my husband has one near his work too. I laid down cash for a personal trainer. 12 weeks 2 x a week for an hour and hopefully this will let me reach my goal of 50 lbs by Halloween. Woo go me.
