Monday did not go so well folks. I started off the session fine as we were doing "baselines" for core, arms and leg strength. I was surprised I did better with planks (core) than legs, and I always thought I was "leg strong". Anyway, we were supposed to have done this in session one but the other trainer was too busy kicking my butt! At this gym, they set you up with a few people they think you will like so that you can train with different people if one guy is off or something. Well, this trainer is actually in the Master's program of the Health Promotion and Education program I am getting my PhD in. Small world Cincinnati.
After the baselines and measurements (let me tell you, it is super awkward having a cute guy measure your boobs and butt. I just stood there trying not to laugh cause I am a third grader disguised as a 26 year old. I kept trying to make jokes but I don't think he thought I was funny) we did arms. I have little arm strength but he taught me how to do a better push up. Unfortunately, at the end of this workout I started feeling dizzy. "Meredith stop being a little baby", I first told myself. But then the dizziness didn't go away and I felt like I was going to puke. I was also breaking out in a cold sweat. Trainer dude did not seem to get my cues and we kept going. I finally told him I thought I was about to die (jk I just told him I felt sick). Then he asked if I wanted a protein smoothie which sounded disgusting so I said no. I just imagined smoothie all over the gym floor. I was SO embarrassed but he told me he had people "pukin' everywhere" after his first session before so that I shouldn't be. Fantastic. I hobbled out of the gym to my car and sat their for about ten minutes until I was convinced I could drive home. Mer In America: Out.
I felt better after eating a nanner (a banana) and later that night my friend Bee's personal trainer guru boyfriend told me my "blood sugar dropped" and that's why I felt so terrible. I am going back for training on Monday and am so nervous I am going to nearly pass out/throw up again, but I just have to have confidence that I won't. Send good personal training energy this way!
Hope everyone had a good Christmas! I saw American Hustle and it was a 3/5 stars for me. Even though I do love me some Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper.
