Seeing small changes!

I am starting to see some small changes in my body from my workout routines.  I work with a trainer 2 on Mondays and Wednesdays and he usually combines cardio with strength training (i.e. shoulder presses as I step on and off a platform).  On the days I am on my own I usually do interval cardio for 30 minutes and some ab work.  I try to work out at least 5 days per week...that is my lifelong goal.  Lately I've been hitting it, but if I fall short at 4 days I'm not too upset.

I have noticed my upper body is much more defined, I feel slightly less flabby in my arms (my primary target problem area other than my stomach), my back has less emerging rolls and my thighs definitely feel stronger and firmer.  My stomach still has a ton of fat on it, but it hasn't been very long and I am VERY pleased with the progress I am making, my workouts are becoming easier and more intense at the same time!  Investing in the PT is the best decision I've made so far.

I cannot wait until this summer when the pool at my complex opens...I definitely plan to utilize it for some of my workouts and already have a new bathing suit picked out!  Wednesday's weigh in better be kind to me this week!!!


  1. We have very similar workout routines. I also workout with a trainer on Mondays and Wednesdays and try to go it alone 3 other times each week. Your plan must give you the energy you need to keep up with your studies. I remember when my brother was in med school, his schedule was crazy.

    Your future patients will view you as a role model. I know that my current primary care doctor is a real inspiration to me. She is a wife, mother of two and has a busy practice. She is about my age but has the body of someone in their 20's. It's clear she practices what she preaches and it shows.

  2. What kind of ab work are you doing?

    You sound like you have a PLAN and you'e on the right track. Just stopping by to see what's going on with you!

  3. That's awesome, sounds like your workouts are giving you great results.
