Today we were reunited with our beloved trainer! #thankgoodness We have literally only seen Sandra once this year before today between the weather, illness and charity walks! I’m not going to lie…I was really nervous about today!!! Pneumonia really knocked the wind out of me…get it?!?! And it has been a tough go building my stamina back up. Sweet Jenny came to pick me up this morning! #lovethisgirl
I shared my fears with Jenny…I told her I was scared I was going to pass out on the treadmill. So I had to act it out, but I couldn’t stop laughing!
Time to loosen up! Get back in the game!
We had a great hug fest when we walked in. Sandra is such a part of our Meatball journey and we realllllly missed her. Then we hopped on the treadmill for a warmup! We both survived #notdeadyet Time for a circuit in the little gym! We alternated between 2 exercises on each circuit, then switched for four rounds! First circuit was chest press with two 20 pound weights, 15 reps and the other person did squat wall balls with a 15 pound ball.
Yuck…i look awful! Haha, Jenny, your butt looks great! #powersquat This was harrrrd! Circuit number two was in the big gym and we alternated between ropes for 45 seconds and a back row, 15 reps. Again we did this circuit for 4 rounds.
Round Three was back in the small gym and consisted of boos ball sit ups for a minute and kettle bell swings for 45 seconds. Spoiler alert, 4 ROUNDS!
I had to swap out the kettle bells for another arm exercise bc I ran out of air! We stayed in here for our next duo. We switched between slam balls with a 15 pound ball and squats to military presses with 2-15 pound weights!
Now, back to the big gym for our final circuit! We did exercise ball wall sits and alternated with a weird run in place/punching bag slaps. You’re never going to guess…we did it for 4 rounds! 😉
It was really hard, but it was so great to be back. Sandra is so motivational! She kept reminding us to do one rep at a time, to make each movement count, to breath through it and to dig deep. We love Sandra so much and our journey was so off track while we were apart. Sandra, we can never thank you enough! You have been such a huge contributor to our success and we cannot wait to get back in the swing of things. Thank you thank you thank you , Love you love you love you.
We are both still up from our lowest, I guess we love a challenge. But my client Sarah was so right. We do better together. We feel better when we eat healthy and when we work out! We need each other and our support group. I’m sick of hearing myself say it, but we are finally back on track and dammit it feels great. Now, if we could just remember this! Xoxo
